Reclaimed: A Theology of Adoption

by Dan Cruver Published Jan 29, 2011

Fred Sanders, author of The Deep Things of God: How the Trinity Changes Everything (Crossway), had this to say about Reclaiming Adoption: Missional Living Through the Rediscovery of Abba Father:

A revival, is happening right now in evangelical theology…..it looks like it may have the momentum to reinvigorate evangelical systematic theology….The most promising sign I’ve seen so far is the new book Reclaiming Adoption: Missional Living through the Rediscovery of Abba Father. This is a short (just over 100 pages), readable, popular-level introduction to the theology of adoption, and it is perfectly positioned at the intersection of the practical, the spiritual, and the doctrinal. It’s published by the innovative little publisher Cruciform Press….A book like Reclaiming Adoption is carrying out the theological task of catechesis, teaching Christians in mid-mission to think more, and think better, about the gospel they are living in. That is going to pay off in the quiet halls of evangelical theology.

Read Fred’s entire review. One of the reasons I so appreciate his review is that he situates the writing of Reclaiming Adoption within the larger context of church history. Fred’s review not only tells you about Reclaiming Adoption, it also provides a  wonderful and brief look at the theology of adoption within the church’s history. As far as I’m concerned, that’s reason enough to read his review.

    Dan,

    This gets me excited! The Father is moving in His children to move out and care for orphans. AND He’s awakening His church to the amazing reality of sonship.
    One leads to the other and the other leads to the One. As Russell Moore and others have said so well – It’s about Jesus.

    Thanks for the great book.
