Review: No Higher Call: A Biblical Treatise on Adoption by Bradford Smith

No Higher Call by author Bradford Smith is quite a powerful little book with a lot of truth in it.  This book mainly deals with adoption and fostering, but ultimately on the whole for the church to take care of the orphan.  This book has given me a lot to think about and to ponder on for a while.  The message here is scriptural and is worth a read even if you are never going to adopt.  Here are some of the things that stood out to me:
-God is not worried about our happiness, but our holiness
-Christians are called to be holy
-Like with Moses and his staff, God has already equipped us with what we need to carry out his will

This book mentions the great missionary father, William Carey, and his call for missions when the rest of the Christians did not believe that was their duty.  So likewise, Mr. Smith calls on the church not to forget the orphan.  He also exhorts fathers to father their children, stating how very important a father is to the life of a child.  I encourage many to read this passionately written book.  I received a copy of this book for an honest review from The Book Club Network, Inc. and the opinions are my own.
