Amazing grace is when God justfies a sinner. but there is something even more amazing - when God adopts that sinner and includes him or her as a 'son' in his family.

Thomas Houston (1803-1882) takes us through the key doctrinal, practical and experimental aspects of the precious subject of God's adoption of sons.
