9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Frederick Harrison on 29 May 2009
Format: Paperback
Ostensibly, this is a book about adoption, but it is NOT limited to prospective parents and their relatives. This is a book that should be read by ALL Christians, single, married, with or without children, young, old, and in between because it is relevant to each of us.

In the context of recounting his own journey to adopt two boys from a Russian orphanage following three miscarriages by his wife, Moore takes the reader through some unexpected and profound discussions on such topics as the doctrine of adoption in and through Jesus Christ, financial stewardship, Christian parenting, the ethics of reproductive technologies, the reduction of children to commodities, the Church as true community, spiritual warfare, issues surrounding adoption and infertility, and mission.

Of particular value to the average person in the church is what to say - and what not to say - to those who who are considering or have already adopted, and to those couples who have miscarried or are struggling with infertility. Moore is calling for a greater sensitivity and openness in our churches on these issues.

Like Martin Luther did with justification by faith, Moore has rediscovered a long neglected Christian doctrine - that of adoption - and from his exposition of it recasts a vision of the church as a community that ministers to the teenage mom, the orphan, the widow, and the stranger. Perhaps the greatest gift of this book is to remind the reader that we are all orphans adopted into the family of God by grace and thus heirs to the Kingdom with Christ as our brother.

The temptation will be to file this book under "Parenting" where it will likely remain unread but for a select few; the challenge is to use it for a church wide study on ecclesiology that will cause a major rethink and reorientation of the Church back to the community God intended.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Andy Gawn on 12 July 2009
Format: Paperback
As a couple who have adopted three children in two lots we have a fair amount of experince of the processes involved. But what is great about this book is that it teaches in real depth what God offers to do for us, based on passages like Romans 8, and simultaneously challenges our attitudes to children in the care system. And all from the perspective of a couple who adopted two boys from Russia.
A real challenge to the Christian church - if God is prepared to do this for us for eternity then the church should be known more than it is by adoption in this life...and for its support for those who do adopt.
There are also a couple of video clips/MP3s available on line of interviews with the author.
Buy it. Read it. Lend it to others. Be prepared to be challenged.

Format: Paperback
Written with real love for children, not spending time on condemning bad parenting but spending time focusing on the need of Christians to adopt. Very enjoyable and real. I will be looking more into adoption as a possibility even if I can have kids.

This is a good read for anyone who wants to or is considering adoption. At times I found it quite a hard read, particularly the theology bits, but I particularly enjoyed reading about the authors adoption story and came away from this book with lots to think about and consider.
