One of the ambitious dreams that Reclaiming Adoption and its authors share with the Apostle Paul is that when Christians hear the word adoption, they will think first about their adoption by God. As it now stands, Christians usually think first about the adoption of children.
Reclaiming Adoption sets out to change this situation by providing breath-taking views of God's love for and delight in His children. If Christians learn to first think about their adoption by God, they will enjoy deeper communion with the God who is love and experience greater missional engagement with the pain and suffering of this world.
What the orphan, the stranger, and the marginalised in our world need most is churches that are filled with Christians who live daily in the reality of God's delight in them.
"I can't recall ever hearing about, much less reading, a book like this before. This remarkable volume fills a gap in our understanding of God's adoption of us and our adoption of others."?
- Sam Storms, pastor and author of The Singing God
