4.0 out of 5 starsAn encouraging read if its theology is read with caution
Reviewed in the United States on January 6, 2020
Kelley Nikondeha is a brilliant writer. The ease with which she weaves life story, biblical narrative, lessons from Scripture, and theological implications is masterful. At points, I found myself passionately disagreeing with some of the projected theological implications. Still, I give it 4 stars because the moments of encouragement and edification outnumber those disagreeable moments.
I have been thinking and writing about "adoptheology" for awhile, but the author opened my eyes to new examples and ways of reading Scripture passages I had not thought about. I already used it to teach and adult ed class at church, and am recommending it to all the adoptive families I know!

Nikondeha writes beautifully. Her theological education informs her writing, but never diminishes her readability. As an adoptive parent and a seminary graduate, I found her expressing in coherent fashion ideas that I've long been convinced of. This is one of those books you wish everyone could read.
