Healing the Heart of the Fatherless
Understanding the spiritual parallels of adoption The selfless act of adoption comes replete with the widest possible variety of human experience. There is joy and reward along with trial and challenge. Dennis weaves the lessons of adoption into a tapestry that parallels the Christian walk. The Apostle Paul alludes to these lessons in his writings to the Romans. This book explores what Paul meant by the “Spirit of adoption” as well as some insight into the healing and potential wholeness that awaits all who have experienced insecurity, uncertainty and brokenness.
In these pages you will find a ray of hope for healing the hurts you have received, not only for yourself, but for those you know who have not walked in the victory won for them through Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross.
