Good News: Never Alone Again

by Dan Cruver Published Sep 13, 2013

Never Alone Again The Son, who was sent forth to redeem us so that we might receive adoption as sons, is none other than the One who not only eternally enjoyed communion with the Father but also fulfilled all the Father’s will. The Son who was sent is a member of the Trinity that has been, is, and […]

*Zach Nielsen published this interview with me January 06, 2011, shortly after my book, Reclaiming Adoption: Missional Living Through the Rediscovery of Abba Father, was released. The reason I’m reposting this interview is that I think it indirectly speaks to some of the concerns that the critics of evangelical orphan care movement currently have. Zach Nielsen writes: […]

The Good News of Christmas

by Dan Cruver Published Dec 13, 2012

“When [God the] Son became incarnate, communion with God became incarnate, and with his incarnation perfect obedience permanently entered the human race in him. In the incarnate Son, communion with the Father and perfect obedience to his holy will finally burst into the far country of our alienation from the Father. Through the incarnation, Jesus […]

Restored to God by the Gift of Adoption

by Dan Cruver Published Nov 29, 2012

This is so very good. Commenting on what God has done for us in the death and resurrection of Jesus, Craig Bartholomew and Michael Goheen write: “We who are born into the sinful race of Adam are restored to God by receiving his gift of adoption (Galatians 4:4-5; Ephesians 1:4).  The same Spirit that lived […]

Mark your calendars!

by Dan Cruver Published Nov 14, 2012

We are excited to announce that Scotty Smith, Mike Reeves (author of the fantastic new book Delighting in the Trinity), Russell Moore, Vermon Pierre, Noel Piper (our live-blogger), and others (still to be announced) will be joining us for our October 4-5 national conference in Louisville, KY! Our conference theme is (you guessed it!) “The Story […]

“The reality of the love of God for us is often the last thing in the world to dawn upon us. As we fix our eyes upon ourselves, our past failures, our present guilt, it seems impossible to us that the Father could love us.” Sinclair Ferguson wrote those words, with surgical-like precision, in Children […]

Back in the early part of 2011, we had the privilege of serving Ethiopia’s orphans by partnering with Kidmia Adoption and the wonderful work they are doing in Ethiopia. Our part in the partnership was to have Reclaiming Adoption translated into Amharic to be given to Ethiopian pastors (Amharic is the most widely spoken language in Ethiopia). Because […]

Part 1 | Part 2 The Trinity is much more than a series of propositional truth claims about God. Don’t get me wrong, propositional truth claims about the Trinity are absolutely essential. Without them, we really do not know what we believe and, as a result, are susceptible to being “tossed to and fro . […]

Christmas and the healing of our humanity

by Dan Cruver Published Dec 2, 2011

“As soon as Jesus was conceived by the Spirit in the virgin womb of Mary, the healing and sanctifying of our humanity began. When Jesus said, ‘I am the resurrection and the life’ (John 11:25), he was not merely referring to what he was about to do with Lazarus in the tomb, nor to what […]

Together for what?

by Dan Cruver Published Sep 20, 2011

If you are wondering if our October 21-22 conference in Phoenix is right for you, read this brief article. Our conferences are not primarily about adopting children. Many people see the word adoption in Together for Adoption and think it’s referring to the adoption of children into homes. So, when they read or hear about our […]
