Product Description

We use the word adoption very casually today - we speak of adopting pets, books, and highways. Yet the word has a far nobler significance. Adoption is the permanent placement of a child in a family with all its rights and privileges. God has forever placed us in his family. He has forever made us his children. He has forever changed our legal status. He has forever granted us an inheritance. He has forever lavished his love upon us.

A Hope Deferred probes the depths of this wonderful reality by unfolding the six blessings of adoption as found in Romans 8. It intertwines these blessings with an account of one family's journey to international adoption - a journey encompassing twenty years, four continents, and countless joys and sorrows. The result is a valuable glimpse into the essential relationship between adoption, affliction, and the fatherhood of God over his people.

Endorsements

"How long, O Lord?" is a piercing Biblical cry which Stephen and Alison Yuille lived over many years of praying that God would give them children. In the end, God granted them two daughters, and a deeper knowledge of His fatherly love in Jesus Christ. This book is a precious mosaic of personal stories and biblical teaching that go straight to the heart.
---Dr. Joel R. Beeke, President, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary
