.. No higher call!
May 6, 2016
Nationwide, tens of thousands of children languish in the foster system, orphans with no hope, no family. Bradford Smith will tell you like he sees it with good Biblical scripture. He will squeeze your heart and emotions as he describes his turmoil when called to action for the Orphan. By the time you finish this book you will be asking as he did.. Where is your heart on Adoption/fostering .. No Higher Call: A Biblical Treatise on Adoption will move you! I was gifted a copy to review from The Book Club Network.
No Higher Call by author Bradford Smith is quite a powerful little book with a lot of truth in it. This book mainly deals with adoption and fostering, but ultimately on the whole for the church to take care of the orphan. This book has given me a lot to think about and to ponder on for a while. The message here is scriptural and is worth a read even if you are never going to adopt. Here are some of the things that stood out to me:
-God is not worried about our happiness, but our holiness
-Christians are called to be holy
-Like with Moses and his staff, God has already equipped us with what we need to carry out his will
This book mentions the great missionary father, William Carey, and his call for missions when the rest of the Christians did not believe that was their duty. So likewise, Mr. Smith calls on the church not to forget the orphan. He also exhorts fathers to father their children, stating how very important a father is to the life of a child. I encourage many to read this passionately written book. I received a copy of this book for an honest review from The Book Club Network, Inc. and the opinions are my own.
