Straight from the Mailbox – Orphan Justice


The fine folks over at B&H Books were kind enough to send me an advanced copy of Orphan Justice by Johnny Carr.  It looks like a  great and I’m looking forward to getting into it.

Here’s the book description:

While the growing orphan care movement has been reduced to a focus on adoption, something few people can do, Johnny Carr shows readers how every Christian should play an active role in caring for orphans.
Indeed, caring for the orphan requires us to care about related issues from child trafficking and HIV/AIDS to racism and poverty. Too often, we only discuss or theologize the issues, relegating the responsibility to governments. No one can do everything, but everyone can do something; Christians are clearly called to care for orphans, a group so close to the heart of Jesus.
Based on his own personal journey toward pure religion, Johnny Carr moves readers from talking about global orphan care to actually doing something about it in Orphan Justice. Combining biblical truth with the latest social research, this inspiring book:
  • investigates the orphan care and adoption movement in the U.S. today;

  • examines new data on the needs of orphans and at-risk children;

  • connects “liberal issues” together as critical aspects or orphan care;

  • discovers the role of the church worldwide in meeting these needs;

  • develops a tangible, sustainable action plan using worldwide partnerships;

  • fleshes out the why, what, and how of global orphan care.
