by Dan Cruver Published Nov 23, 2010

Jedd Medefind on our upcoming book, Reclaiming Adoption: Missional Living Through the Rediscovery of Abba Father: The biblical mandate to care for orphans in distress is unequivocal. But mandate alone cannot serve as the fountainhead of motivation for obedience, especially in a realm of such crushing need and difficulty. Rather, we must be animated by a […]
