A manifesto calling Christians to adopt children and to equip Christian families going through the process. Offers biblical foundations for adoption and identifies adoption as a Great Commission priority in evangelical churches.
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 Christ, Adopted for Life, and Tempted and Tried, and he blogs regularly at RussellMoore.com. He and his wife, Maria, have four sons.
C. J. Mahaney is the senior pastor of Sovereign Grace Church of Louisville. 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. J. and his wife, Carolyn, are the parents of three married daughters and one son, and the happy grandparents to twelve grandchildren.
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.

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.

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.
Rev. Doyle Peyton5 Stars Out Of 5December 26, 2009Rev. Doyle PeytonA book every pastor and layman should read. It's a book about adoption and more. It's a book of theology. Moore faithfully deals with the issues of children, families, and the value of human life in the context of biblical theology. It reaches head and heart in a way that is helpful and insightful.
Etage Manuel5 Stars Out Of 5October 28, 2009Etage ManuelAs a parent that is in the final stages of foster parenting to adopt our son, this book showed the steps of adoption that we were going thru in comparison to the steps that God takes when we become his children. Alot of thought and truths are in each page of this book. I got an extra copy to keep put up for our son to read along with any other children that we might adopt or have in the future. I recommend this book very highly and look forward to seeing all the children in the world brought not only into christian homes, but adopted into God's family.
