Free E-Book: "Adoption" by Russell Moore

When Two Letters Make All the Difference


What a difference two letters can make . . .

In Adoption: What Joseph of Nazareth Can Teach Us about This Countercultural Choice, Russell Moore—president of the Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission—calls Christians to seriously consider adoption for their own families and thus take a stand for children, born and unborn.

In our world of on-demand abortion, unreported abruse, and widespread neglect, adoption reflects the love that Joseph of Nazareth—the adoptive father of Jesus—had for his son. More importantly, adoption illustrates the extravagent love of God, who has adopted Christians into his family through the sacrifice of his Son, Jesus Christ.
