Orphanology: Awakening to Gospel-Centered Adoption and Orphan Care
Jun 1, 2011

Orphanology unveils the grassroots movement that‚Äôs engaged in a comprehensive response to serve hundreds of millions of orphans and “functionally parentless” children.

You’ll see a breadth of ways to care with biblical perspective and reasons why we must. Heartwarming, personal stories and vivid illustrations from a growing network of families, churches, and organizations that cross culture show how to respond to God’s mandate. The book empowers:

  • churches–to plan preaching, teaching, ministering, missions, funding adoption, supporting orphans;
  • individuals and families–to overcome challenges and uncertainties;
  • every believer–to gain insights to help orphans in numerous ways.

Discover how to

  • adopt;
  • assist orphans in transition;
  • engage in foster care;
  • partner with faith-based fostering agencies;
  • become orphan hosts.

Along with their families’ adoption stories, Merida and Morton give steps for action and features on churches doing orphan ministry, faith-based children’s homes, orphan-hosting groups, and other resources.
