Russell Moore on Adoption in WSJ

Posted by Andy Naselli for JT

Al Mohler:
Today’s edition of The Wall Street Journal includes an article on adoption by Naomi Schaefer Riley that features our own Dr. Russell Moore.

An excerpt from the article:

Russell Moore, the dean of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Ky., is the author of a forthcoming book called “Adopted for Life: The Priority of Adoption for Christian Families and Churches.” A few years ago, Mr. Moore and his wife adopted two boys from Russia, and he notes that his church has posted a large map showing which countries member families have adopted children from. “In any given church,” he notes, “you rarely see only one family who has adopted. . . . It becomes part of the culture of the congregation.”

Of course, we not only know Dr. Moore as an advocate for adoption, but we see in his family — and in so many others no this campus — all the evidence we need concerning the grace of adoption.

I offer further thoughts here.
Mohler's "further thoughts" refers to an article he posted early this morning: "The Culture of the Congregation -- Celebrating Adoption."
