Wilson Adams – A Preacher and Writer With a Gift for Making the Complex Turn Into the Simple
Wilson Adams is an evangelical minister and writer who takes great joy in making complex things easy to comprehend. He believes that teaching information alone isn’t enough; that’s why his Courageous Living series provides both knowledge and practice in each book.
He lives in Middle Tennessee and serves his church.
Early Life and Education
Wilson was raised within his church’s congregation which leased rather than owned slaves, so they did not own him outright. Wilson became active with debating club and college glee club singing while becoming involved with land speculation using borrowed capital as part of his law degree studies.
Wilson first opened a practice at Reading, Pa. two years after being admitted to the Philadelphia bar in 1768. Two years later he moved westward to Carlisle’s Scotch-Irish settlement, building up a large clientele there and lecturing on English literature at Philadelphia College (which awarded him an honorary master of arts degree).
Considerations was written with ideas in line with early American popular moral philosophy, emphasizing the responsibility that lies with individuals for funding schools rather than depending on one benefactor for support.
Adams initially declined to join in the popular uprising against Parliamentary policies when colonial rebellion broke out in 1765, fearing it would interfere with his law practice and suspecting radicals had hidden agendas to gain independence from Britain.
As Congress member and Secretary of State, he served on more congressional committees than any other member; twenty of these he chaired. As Secretary of State he played an especially key role, working closely with England in their joint occupation of Oregon country as well as convincing Spain to cede Floridas from them.
