Orphans No More by Dudley Hall

Dudley's new book is an important little collection of his messages about "orphanity" (his new word!) and sonship. If you're not able to hear Dudley preach, this book is the next best thing.

My favorite quote:
"Jesus is gloriously exclusive in an inclusive way. Anyone who comes to the Father through believing the Son is welcome. There are no ethnic, legal, gender, or geographic boundaries; just faith in the Son!
   Many would like to approach God without a mediator. They don't get it. Orphans cannot just walk into the inheritance without mediation. Only Jesus the Son has become an orphan for Adam's race."

  1. I like it! Only, shouldn't that be 'orphanhood?' You know, orphanhood vs. sonhood.
    Orphanity. Sonanity. Hm. Sonship. Orphanship. Orphinitude. Shew! Making new words is hard!
