Author Bio

Russell D. Moore is the eighth president of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, the moral and public policy agency of the nation's largest Protestant denomination. A widely-sought commentator, Dr. Moore has been called "vigorous, cheerful, and fiercely articulate" by the Wall Street Journal. He is the author of several books, including The Kingdom of ChristAdopted for Life, and Tempted and Tried, and he blogs regularly at RussellMoore.com. He and his wife, Maria, have four sons.

He has written, edited and contributed to numerous books, including Proclaiming a Cross-Centered Theology; Don't Waste Your Sports; and Sex, Romance and the Glory of God. C.

Author Bio

Russell D. Moore serves as Dean of the School of Theology and Senior Vice President for Academic Administration of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. He also served as the first Executive Director of the Carl F. H. Henry Institute for Evangelical Engagement. He contributed a chapter on Christian political thought to Looking into the Future and coedited Why I Am a Baptist.

Publisher Description

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.

Moore, who adopted two boys from Russia and has spoken widely on the subject, writes for couples considering adoption, families who have adopted children, and pastors who wish to encourage adoption.

    Having adopted myself, it was nice to read a book from the perspective of an adoptive parent. There were many times I found myself wanting to put down the book and applaud! Moore makes great effort of differentiating between his views and personal experiences and doctrine. He does a brilliant job of seeking to weave his experiences into the plan of God for the church to be engaged in the plight of orphans. I highly recommend this book to church leadership seeking to better understand the need for 'adopting' churches and for any family interested in adopting.

    Awesome book! Adoption will never look the same whether you are adopting, helping others adopt, or helping orphans. I not only learned about adoption, but have grown with new understanding of what God has done in adopting me into His forever family.
