Sharing the gospel with those who are adopted—there’s not a one-size-fits-all approach because adoptions come in all shapes and sizes. There are domestic and international adoptions. There are adoptions through exclusive private agencies that sometimes can look like purchasing a designer baby, and there are adoptions where the children are highly challenging, requiring a lifetime of service and commitment from the parent. This conversation also includes practical suggestions on how to share the gospel with those who have experienced adoption as well as cautions on how not to attempt to connect the gospel to adoption.

This Postmodern Realities episode is a conversation with Journal author Robert Barnes about his effective evangelism article, “The Adoption of God” in the 45: 1/2 edition of the Christian Research Journal.
