Read full description of the books:
I'm not done with the book (Kindle version) yet, but I approached it with some caution. As an adoptee myself the merging of Christianity and adoption has been a struggle for me growing up. (Some times it still is) I'm not far into the book but Russell Moore made a statement that is most disturbing for any child born internationally/interracially. There seems to be an imbalance of spiritual nurturing and acknowledging the child's rights/needs for knowing, learning of their earthly background. Yes, earthly background/heritage is not as important as our identity in God, but it does contribute to the story of the child's life. God created the different countries and people, why downplay the importance of diversity as to deny the child's heritage? It concerns me that Moore is promoting such beliefs on the backbone of Christianity. As most may know religious establishments have long had influence in the adoption business, and not always in a most loving positive way. I was hoping for some progress in this book that is suppose to be the first to so excellently merge Christianity and adoption. Still reading, so there's hope in clarification.
Update: I've finished it a few weeks ago. My review stands the same. Was not terribly impressed and didn't clarify the questions that came up. Seemed to perpetuate the idea that love is enough, acknowledging and accepting the reality that the child had a previous life before adoption is ignored, and as long as adoption is done in love (the right kind??) then adoption is the answer no matter what. Especially if it seems that God gave the go-ahead.
