Are you considering adoption? Read this book! Perhaps adoption isn’t for you—read this book anyway! There are many different ways you can and should be involved in the important work of orphan care worldwide. Orphan Justice will equip you to embrace God’s call to “look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.”

"Johnny Carr does not write about justice for the orphan as one who merely observes from a distance, but as one whose life's journey, whose life's mission is to bring justice to the orphan. There is no leader in the evangelical orphan care movement whose work I value more. Orphan Justice is full of fearless thinking that is compelled by the love of Jesus. Johnny loves the orphans of our world because Jesus first loved him. Read. Be empowered. An then pursue justice for the orphan."

"If you're seeking a book to make you feel good about yourself, try the self-help section. But if you're looking for a personal, provocative, and sometimes raw challenge to see the world in fresh ways, Orphan Justice is a must read. Using gripping stories and surprising scriptures, Johnny Carr shakes readers from their slumber and alerts them to a global crisis begging for our attention. Warning: Do not read this book unless you're prepared to be changed!"

It's been heartening to see the church get excited about orphan care, but sometimes the best of intentions do not always align with best practice. Orphan Justice is a book that bridges the gap between passion and practice. Johnny Carr tackles the tough issues involved in orphan care, from the realities about institutionalization to the racism that still permeates our society. It's an important read for church leaders, advocates, and anyone interested in answering the call to care for orphans.

“No one has stood more at the forefront of the evangelical orphan care movement than Johnny Carr. In this provocative book, Carr reminds us that while orphan care is never about less-than adoption, orphan care is about an entire range of issues. Carr prophetically calls the church to care for orphans by combatting racism, trafficking, poverty, and abortion. Even when you don’t agree with all Carr’s answers, you will be blessed by wrestling with him through the questions.”

"Johnny Carr is changing the conversation on the orphan crisis. I laughed, cried and winced in anger as Johnny shared stories from his personal and professional mission to care for the least of us. In Orphan Justice, Johnny brings us into a messy conversation and shows us practical solutions that can build consensus to move the needle."
