Hope Deferred, A: Adoption and the Fatherhood of God
2 in stock
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.
A Hope Deferred probes the depths of this wonderful reality and intertwines these blessings with an account of one family's journey to international adoption. The result is a valuable glimpse into the essential relationship between adoption, affliction and the fatherhood of God over his people.
"This book leads us on a journey that is full of twists and surprises. Woven into the narrative are the richly colored threads of a superb practical application of Paul's teaching in Romans 8. A good read, a moving story, and a great help - all in one."?
