An exploration of what being adopted into God's family means. The author argues that the key to our liberation as Christians is the biblical image of spiritual adoption. So often we continue to live as spiritual orphans, forgetting that thanks to the saving work of Jesus we have been made sons and daughters of God. Mark Stibbe explores this image of adoption and shares his own story of growing up as an adopted child and the insights his experiences gave him into the heart of God. He shows how we can experience God's fatherly love, through the work of the Holy Spirit.
