Over the course of his career, Roy Adams has traveled to multiple countries on nearly every continent as a pastor, seminary professor, and speaker. He’s the author of eight books and hundreds of editorials and articles—and now, Adams offers his own story, with some of the most arresting, behind-the-scenes, providential experiences of his life. His memoir also ventures into some of the most sensitive, and usually forbidden, areas of his church’s operations.
Adams’ memoir is one with many twists and turns, but with a multitude of clear-cut providential interventions from a God he calls his Strong Tower. He shares the story of how God used a bunch of cockroaches to bring him to a pivotal decision in his life; and about the frightening moments at the British Columbia boarder when, with 33 cents left in his pocket, he came closer to being refused entry—and this after a harrowing journey from his Caribbean home.
Beams of Heaven Guiding Me is far from a tell-all, but Adams speaks candidly about his final years at the Adventist World headquarters in Silver Spring, Maryland. Here we have an insider’s look at some of the inner workings of Adventist officialdom—an invaluable tool for those making critical administrative decisions for the church in the days ahead.
