Product Description

Adopted: The Sacrament of Belonging in a Fractured World explores the mystery of what it means to belong to God’s family. Kelly Nikondeha expounds upon what it means to belong to each other and to our God, highlighting that it is only through a proper understanding of the limitless hospitality that God has shown us that we can be transformed into people that show the same hospitality to others. Starting with Moses, Nikondeha traces the theme of adoption and belonging through all of Scripture. Her examination of the Scriptures reveals that we often place too small of a circle around those who we consider being family, and as such challenges us to expand our vision.

Editorial Reviews

Christena Cleveland
— author of Disunity in Christ: Uncovering the Hidden Forces That Keep Us Apart
"Part memoir, part theological exposition, Adopted: The Sacrament of Belonging in a Fractured World expands our understanding of what it means to be the family of God. As both an adopted person and an interracial adoptive parent, Kelley Nikondeha writes with transparency, tenderness, and racial awareness. . . . This wonderful book will illuminate a path for all people to experience sacred relationships."

Brian D. McLaren
— author of A New Kind of Christianity: Ten Questions That Are Transforming the Faith
"Kelley Nikondeha writes with the heart of a poet and a theologian, and as an adopted child and an adoptive parent. Who could have guessed that her story could give such rich insight into theology, family, society, racism, fear, and belonging?"

Sarah Bessey
— author of Jesus Feminist and Out of Sorts: Making Peace with an Evolving Faith
"We need to hear Kelley Nikondeha’s voice these days. Her Adopted will deeply shape your own prophetic imagination and create pathways of belonging in our world. I’ll be recommending this book to everyone."

D. L. Mayfield
— author of Assimilate or Go Home: Notes from a Failed Missionary on Rediscovering Faith
"Kelley Nikondeha is my favorite kind of theologian—a hybrid of poet and prophet, both mystical and yet very much planted in our world. This book is a radical look at belonging, and it will change all of us who are looking for ways to expand our tables."

Drew G. I. Hart
— author of Trouble I’ve Seen: Changing the Way the Church Views Racism
"Nikondeha effortlessly interweaves her lived experiences of adoption with provocative biblical stories and a daring theological imagination. So good!"

Seth Haines
— author of Coming Clean: A Story of Faith
"As an orphan, daughter, and adoptive mother, Kelley brings a depth of experience and clarity of pen to this work of lived theology. If you’re looking to adopt a holistic theology of orphan care, grab this book."

Idelette McVicker
— founder and editor-in-chief of SheLovesmagazine.com
"Through the metaphor of adoption, Kelley Nikondeha calls us to a vision of family that is generous, inclusive, and always ready to add another chair. This is the vision of the family of God I long for."

Nish Weiseth
— author of Speak: How Your Story Can Change the World
"I am so thankful for this work from the brilliant mind of Kelley Nikondeha. Theologically rich yet entirely accessible, her Adopted will surely become a favorite among church leaders and laypeople alike. It’s easily one of my favorite books of the year."

Publishers Weekly
"An elegant primer on adoption. . . . Nikondeha persuasively showcases how adoption can bolster families, enlarge love, and affirm faith."
