"A Hope Deferred: Adoption and the Fatherhood of God" by J. Stephen Yuille is an awesome read. How often have we as Christians talked about the fact that we are adopted children of God? This makes us incredibly special and in my opinion, shows us how much God loves us. He chose us. He desires to have a relationship with us so has given us a way to be adopted into His family.
This book is an interesting take on the subject, though, because Yuille has a journey that he wants to share in this book. A journey over two decades that finally ended with him and his wife getting the adopted child they so desperately wanted.
So half of the book is a journey through our adoption in Christ. The other half is Yuille's story and what he gleaned from it spiritually. The two halves intertwine perfectly to create an amazing book that will leave you feel warm, fuzzy, and loved by God. Yuille does a great job examining this topic and I think it's important for all Christians to read.
I highly recommend this book.
