Donald Adams, a United Methodist pastor for more than 30 years, is best known for his presentations of John and Charles Wesley. He is a graduate of Asbury College (A.B), Asbury Theological Seminary (M.Div.) and Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary (D.Min.). He currently serves as the Superintendent of the Valdosta District of the South Georgia Conference of the United Methodist Church--when he is not playing with his five grandchildren.Review:
The book can be used for personal devotion and self-examination or for profitable group study. In addition, it can be a valuable resource for preaching. I found myself challenged and inspired by its depth and simplicty. It sings of the joy and love of God and the privilege and joy of entering a life-transforming relationship with Christ. --Richard C. Looney, Episcopal Director, The Foundation for Evangelism
Don Adams has given us a thoughtful and thought-provoking look at Paul's letter to the Philippians. Written in a flowing conversational style that is filled with illustrations from the author's own life and his lifetime of voracious rading, With Hands Outstretched seeks to help the reader understand what God is saying to the church of today through Paul's letter to the people he loved in Macedonia long ago. Like Paul, Dr. Adams calls us to experience the joy of stretching, straining and striving toward what God has ahead for those who persist with faith in the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. This writer is a pastor who, with Paul, passionately desires that all of God's children experience the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus (Philippians 3:8) as Lord. --B. Michael Watson, United Methodist Bishiop, the South Georgia Conference
Don Adams did an extraordinary job of making Philippians come alive with new meaning. With Hands Outstretched opened new vistas for me. I am thrilled with the fresh insights into Philippians that apply to my day-to-day living. I was truly blessed reading With Hands Outstretched. --William S. Hatcher, Chairman of the Board, The United Methodist Publishing House
