For some reason, as I was reading about estate planning just now, I remembered a mental note I made over the summer to re-examine the Christian doctrine of adoption in comparison to the Islamic stance on adoption. It seemed like a potential bridge to the Gospel.
So I guess this is sort of like a teaser. More to come . . .
But if anybody wants to think along with me, here are some starting points:
Islam's Stance on Adoption (maybe not the world's most credible web site, but this conforms with what I've learned from my Muslim professor)
CJ Mahaney on the Doctrine of Adoption in God's Word
Knowing God (Mahaney also talks about some of Packer's most powerful points from the chapter on adoption)
