Specialties in teaching are focused on Medieval and Reformation studies, with additional interests in the history of worship, spirituality, media, communications and the arts in the church. She is the daughter of the late Professor Emeritus of Ministry, Dr. Gwyn Walters, who taught homiletics for 36 years at Gordon-Conwell. As Faculty Mentor for Women’s Spirituality and Leadership Development, she works in conjunction with the Women’s Resource Network to provide opportunities for women to deepen their relationship with Jesus Christ. Her book, Visions in Late Medieval England: Lay Spirituality and Sacred Glimpses of the Hidden Worlds of Faith (E. J. Brill, 2007) explores the impact of visionary accounts in sermons, saints, legends and religious instruction manuals on the worldview of the medieval laity. Dr. Adams is currently researching the 2000-year history of the use of narrative and story in the life of the church.
