The gospel of Jesus Christ - the good news that through Jesus we have been adopted as sons and daughters into God's family - means that Christians ought to be at the forefront of the adoption of orphans in North America and around the world.

Russell D. Moore does not shy away from this call in Adopted for Life, a popular-level, practical manifesto for Christians to adopt children and to help equip other Christian families to do the same. He shows that adoption is not just about couples who want children - or who want more children. It is about an entire culture within the church, a culture that sees adoption as part of the Great Commission mandate and as a sign of the gospel itself.

    " i loved this book. it explained well the doctrine of adoption and demonstrated the connection between God's adoption of us and our adoption of children beautifully. if you've ever thought about adoption or know anyone who has adopted or may adopt, read this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephgarvey | 1/28/2014

    " Beautiful story of the Moore's adoption process and God's heart for adoption. Beyond the practical, I appreciated how Dr. Moore showed the likeness of our adoption in Christ. Great book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brittany | 1/5/2014

    " Every Christian should read this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mark A Powell | 1/5/2014

    " Genuine adoption is an inseparable blend of doctrine and process, a flesh-and-blood reality of the spiritual adoption all who are in Christ have received. As such, Moore argues, Christians must be at the forefront of adoption, either opening their own homes to orphaned children or making it possible for other to do so. By engaging in adoption in this way, the gospel of Christ is more clearly communicated to others and understood by us. Highly recommended. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michael Eady | 1/4/2014

    " Solid book for anyone preparing to adopt or if you know someone that is adopting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joshua Reitano | 1/2/2014

    " Terrific book on the priority of adoption for families and churches. Born out of Moore's own experience adopting two boys from Russia, and from years of thinking through the Scriptural imperatives to care for the least and the lost, he makes a compelling theological and practical case that, while every Christian may not be called to adopt, all of us are called to support the cause of adoption. Adopted for Life is a well-written and engaging, and definitely worth your time. It would be the first book I would recommend to anyone considering adoption. "

    " Changed my view on adoption. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matthew George | 11/18/2013

    " A must for anyone considering adoption or who knows someone who is. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gregory Soderberg | 8/23/2013

    " Fantastic! Moore is a respected Baptist preacher and scholar, but the book is eminently practical. More importantly, Moore writes out of his own experience as an adoptive father. Essential reading for every Christian! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 J & C | 7/13/2013

    " This is a MUST READ for everyone. You may not be called by God to adopt a child, but as a Christian we must understand our status in Christ as an adopted son or daughter. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dana | 12/18/2012

    " Great stuff. Loved it. Practical and worshipful! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marianne | 6/18/2012

    " Wow! A world-view changer and a must read for everyone. This is a thought-provoking, even-handed, call for the church to fulfill its duty to care for orphans. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sara Jane Timmerman | 9/18/2011

    " A real-life, gospel centered explanation of adoption! So pastoral and helpful. Practical too. We are all adopted children of God and it starts there! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Libby Shepherd | 9/12/2011

    " Reading Russell Moore's book "Adopted for Life" is a breath of fresh air. This is not a book just for those who have adopted or plan to adopt....THIS BOOK IS FOR EVERYONE! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather | 5/31/2011

    " The overall message is a great one. However, the spiritual/Christian discussion seemed to contain too many complicated Biblical themes and jargon that might be difficult for some readers. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jonathan Seger | 2/23/2011

    " Outstanding book for everyone, not just Christians looking to adopt. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nick | 11/16/2010

    " Russel Moore does a great job painting the theological background for adoption and helps you to think through many of the issues and decisions that come with the adoption process. I would recommend it to everyone, not just those already considering adoption. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angie M | 8/19/2010

    " This book and radical by David platt are 2 of the most life changing books I have ever read. "
