Christianaudio.com gives away a free audiobook every month. And not obscure, strange books by someone you’ve never heard of either, books by authors such as: John Piper, Francis Chan, Chuck Colson, and many more.
This month they’re giving away Russell Moore’s Adopted for Life audiobook for free. Russell Moore is dean @ Southern Seminary and pastor at Highview Baptist Church in Louisville, KY. I have not read the book but their has been a lot of great things said about it since it was published in 2009 and I have begun to give it a listen.
If you’re interested in adopting or amazed at your own adoption(through Christ), Moore makes a compelling comparison between our adoption as sons and our need to consider an adoption theology, through the telling of his own story of adopting two boys from a Russian orphanage.
Here’s a blurb about the book:
“Russell Moore reminds us in his powerful book Adopted for Life that the true Christian family reaches far beyond the biological. The poignant tale of the adoption of two Russian orphans by him and his wife Maria grows into a metaphor of Christian salvation. This book offers both practical advice and courage to every couple considering adoption. For all readers, it shows how the act of adoption actually reveals core truths about the gospel of Christ.”
—Allan C. Carlson, President, the Howard Center for Family, Religion & Society
“Russell Moore, who is one of the bright young leaders in the Christian world, combines his own experience of adopting sons with a powerful message to the church about the key role it can play in promoting adoption. This is a wonderful book in which Russell very effectively weaves in mankind’s own story of adoption by God. The personal accounts are particularly moving. To be pro-life, you have to be pro-adoption.”
—Charles Colson, Founder, Prison Fellowship
