Resources on Adoption

This morning I am preaching on the doctrine of adoption in our ongoing series on the various motifs of the atonement. In my new book, The Death of Death: Engaging the Culture of Death with the Gospel of Christ, I highlight a number of helpful books on the doctrine and work of adoption and orphan care. I want to promote that here.
