Home for Good
Tying in to a nationwide joint campaign by the Evangelical Alliance and Care for the Family, Krish Kandiah wants us all to take seriously Jesus's call to 'suffer the little children' by engaging with the needs of the many thousands of children up and down the country who are in care and whom the church could and should be helping.
Krish and his wife Miriam have adopted and fostered themselves and their experience - and that of the many others in this book - is very different from the popular myth that social services seek to prevent Christians from getting involved. In any case, Krish argues, whatever the state's stance it is purely and simply a part of our calling as God's church to get involved just where it's hardest, and to help these children out of the tough realities they find themselves in.
Filled with stories from people who have adopted, or were adopted themselves, as well as practical advice on how it all works and the challenges that will come, this book makes a compelling case that the church can and must make a difference in these children's lives, and asks us all to consider our response.
