One wag recently introduced Dr. Adams as a man who “has never had an unpublished thought.” With over 100 books published as well as contributions to countless compilations, feschrifts, journals, and anthologies the work of compiling a complete bibliography is at once both necessary and daunting. The task is complicated by Dr. Adams himself who has always had a forward focus and cared little about keeping copies of, or records of, what he had accomplished in the past.

The following is an ongoing attempt to compile a complete list of the works of Dr. Jay E Adams. As a work in progress we would welcome input about books, articles, or other works that we certainly will have missed ourselves. If you can help us identify works that have not been included we would be grateful. Please send your information to This email address is being protected from spambots.

This is an annotated bibliography. We have made our best effort to note when the work was originally published, its publishing history, and current availability. The comments about each book are the opinions of the compiler of this bibliography, Donn R Arms, and are his responsibility.
