Reviews of Reclaiming Adoption are coming in! We are very grateful to all who are reading the book and writing reviews. If you write a blog review of Reclaiming Adoption, let us know here and we will link to your blog post in another T4A post.

Megan Hyatt Miller is our latest reviewer. About Reclaiming Adoption Megan writes:

There is a unique phenomenon sweeping across America right now. A groundswell of Christians and entire churches are stepping up to care for and adopt orphans. Many of the most influential pastors in this country, like Rick Warren, are devoting significant time at the pulpit to getting the word out—that God calls us to care for those without hope and without families (James 1:27).

The writers of a new book, Reclaiming Adoption: Missional Living Through the Rediscovery of Abba Father, provide a possible explanation for this: Christians have a perspective on orphans and adoption through the gospel that the rest of the world does not.

An understanding of our own adoption in Christ enables us to rightly understand and appreciate human adoption. Grasping the scope and weight of our vertical adoption provides the biblical foundation we need to comprehend and respond to God’s call for us to adopt horizontally.

Essentially a collection of essays by leading evangelical thinkers and adoption advocates, Reclaiming Adoption takes us deep into the heart of Abba Father for his children. Authors John PiperDan Cruver,Scotty SmithJason Kovacs, and Richard D. Phillips provide an intentionally theological perspective on adoption that manages to be simultaneously inspirational and practical.

Read Megan’s entire review. Megan will be one of our Featured Bloggers for our October 21-22 conference in Phoenix.

Cruciform Press is releasing Reclaiming Adoption tomorrow.

    I recommend this book without reservation.

    The church needs this book! Cruver and others do a masterful job connecting the dots of adoption and mission. After reading I was humbled, encouraged, challenged, and motivated.

    In regards to this book, the only thing worse than not reading it is to reading it and not acting. So read this book and act! Church, get involved with God’s “Plan A” of adoption.

    Adoption IS the Gospel!
