by Dan Cruver Published Mar 31, 2011

Cruciform: Living the Cross-Shaped Life by Jimmy Davis ships tomorrow (April 1). No fooling. If you were to buy just one book in the month of April, Jimmy Davis’ new book should be it. If you buy (and read it), you’ll want to read it again in both May and June. It’s that good. Plus, […]

Why Theology Matters for Orphans

by Dan Cruver Published Mar 29, 2011

I’m sitting here at a Starbucks in Scottsdale, Arizona, reflecting upon last night’s house conference, our first one. Our primary reason for holding these mini-conferences in homes is because the orphan crisis is something that we as Christians should grapple with in our living rooms. The plight of orphans around the world should be just […]

T4A Down Under!

by Dan Cruver Published Mar 21, 2011

I was recently asked why Together for Adoption was heading to Australia this coming fall to hold a November 18-19 conference. My short answer is that Scripture’s teaching on God’s work of adoption (Ephesians 1:4-5; Romans 9:4; Galatians 4:4-6; Romans 8:15 and 23) sends out lines of implications that penetrate the boundaries of every continent […]

I got this idea from Tad Thompson, a fellow Cruciform Press author. It’s fascinating (and helpfully instructive) to see which parts of your book touch readers the most. Here are the some of the most popular Reclaiming Adoption highlights by Kindle users: “To live missionally means to live each waking moment in light of the […]
