About the Author

Dr. Adams’s booklet Christ And Your Problems concludes:
“Depressed, discouraged Christian, let me urge you to take God at His Word. No matter how dark the night may seem – the morning will come. With the darkness there is also light. There is Christ; and in Him is light, light that will enable you to endure it. The box may seem impregnable, but it isn’t – not to God.
You’re in a box? Then sing – sing as bleeding Paul and Silas sang at midnight in their cell in Philippi, and soon (i.e., in God’s time) you too will hear the rumble of the earth and feel the shaking of the foundations of your prison, and the doors – the doors of your box – will fly open according to the promise and power of God.”
