In the Review Mirror

by Dan Cruver Published Jan 14, 2011

Yes, I meant review mirror, not rearview mirror. Each Friday I plan on posting reviews of Reclaiming Adoption: Missional Living Through the Rediscovery of Abba Father. Review Mirror seemed appropriate and just a little catchy. This week’s review is our second from the UK (read the first one).

Dave Bish lives in Exeter, England and leads UCCF’s South West Team (UCCF’s mission is to make disciples of Christ on college and university campuses in the UK). I’ve been a big fan of Dave’s blog (the blue fish project) for years now and am very grateful for his truly kind review. Here are some highlights from his review:

It’s an ‘easy’ read that will provoke and challenge you to rejoice afresh in the glories of the gospel. It’s the fruit of Dan Cruver’s persistent gospel-centredness, which I’ve long benefitted from in his blogging days, and which is now expressed through his Together for Adoption movement. I had the pleasure of briefly meeting Dan when I was in the USA 3 years ago

. . .

His material on Adoption and Union with Christ is simply beautiful. He shows how our Christian life is less to be thought of as imitation of Christ but rather a participation in Christ’s relationship with his Father, through our adoption in the gospel.

Read his entire review. Dave’s review includes a number of key quotations from the book itself.


Announcement: Reclaiming Adoption is now available as an audio book.
