While ChristianAudio.com has given away some great audiobooks over the past couple of years, I am more excited about this month’s free audiobook than any of the others. From now until February 28, 2011 you can get Russell D. Moore’s book Adopted for Life in audiobook absolutely free. This book, in my opinion, is perhaps THE best book on adoption I’ve ever read (and I’ve read quite a few!). Moore covers both physical adoption (having adopted two sons himself) and spiritual adoption (our adoption in Christ). I cannot recommend this book highly enough. If you’re thinking about adoption, read this book. If you MIGHT be thinking about adoption, read this book. If you’ve ever adopted, read this book. If you want to know more about adoption, read this book. Here is the book description from ChristianAudio.
The gospel of Jesus Christ—the good news that through Jesus we have been adopted as sons and daughters into God’s family—means that Christians ought to be at the forefront of the adoption of orphans in North America and around the world.
Moore does not shy away from this call in Adopted for Life, a popular-level, practical manifesto for Christians to adopt children and to help equip other Christian families to do the same. He shows that adoption is not just about couples who want children—or who want more children. It is about an entire culture within the church, a culture that sees adoption as part of the Great Commission mandate and as a sign of the gospel itself.
