The Adoption of Sons, by Thomas Houston
“… theologically profound and warmly devotional.” — Prof Edward Donnelly
The Adoption of Sons takes us through the key doctrinal, practical and experimental aspects of the precious subject of God’s adoption of sons. This work by the highly respected nineteenth century minister Thomas Houston (1803-1882) had become hard to find, and we are pleased to be able to make it available again for today’s readers. Our edition is enhanced by a biographical introduction by Rev Stephen Steele, Stranraer, and a theological introduction by Rev Ian Macleod, Grand Rapids.
“In my opinion, Thomas Houston’s The Adoption of Sons is superior to all of these [other nineteenth century] volumes and has been unduly neglected.” — Dr Joel Beeke.

What people are saying…
“… a greatly overlooked work came to the church from the Irish Presbyterian, Thomas Houston. I recall discovering this gem while researching for my dissertation and being helped in my view of both ecclesiology and soteriology. I had to reach all the way to Great Britain to find a copy in a library and settle for a pathetic photocopy for my use all these years. So, needless to say, I’m thrilled that I can now enjoy a readable text. I commend this volume highly and hope you find great benefit for your soul from having read it.”

“I describe this book, ‘a little gem’, and that is no overstatement because this is one of the best treatises ever published on the subject of ‘Adoption’. … This is a brilliant book and will fill the heart of thoughtful readers with gratitude at being adopted by grace and having conferred all the privileges of the sons of God.”
– Prof Robert McCollum, Principal of Reformed Theological College, Knockbracken
