Since its publication in 2007, this book about parenting adopted children with traumatic backgrounds, The Connected Child, has had considerable impact in Christian circles. Reviewer Brian Liechty assesses the book and points out how it can be helpful to Christian parents whose adopted children are from “hard places.” But he also cautions that the authors fail to understand children as moral agents which means readers must weigh the book’s insights and recommendations judiciously.
