Tim Adams – Similitudes: Typology of Our Day
Tim Adams Husband, Father, Author, Iconology Expert
Tim Adams is first and foremost a father of six children and married to the love of his life Katy Ann MacArthur. Raised and lived around the US spending middle and High school years in Upstate New York. I remember well camping as a boy scout on the backside of the Hill Cumorah. Sneaking out at night as our leaders slept, digging with sticks looking for that stone box that held the plates. Professors hadn’t taught me yet that New York’s Hill was the wrong one. Nonetheless we moved there when I was 13; and I identified strongly with the boy prophet. My Father became a professor of Art History working on organizing an iconografical index for the Cathedral of Chartres. Having read a few of my Fathers papers and having him as a Seminary teacher trained me to “see” what the scriptures looked like in stone. Latter served a mission in the Netherlands Amsterdam mission, where I had fun with my companions seeing if they could identify the apostles and prophets in the large Catholic churches.
Tim attended Ricks College as it was then known; and found his girlfriend Katy MacAurthur (and yes; she is related to that famous General), and married her in the Washington DC Temple.
Tim attended a meeting in Portland Oregon where he lives; where a Christian man gave a presentation on the constellations, and how they testified of Christ. Having an acute interest in Greek mythology, I thought how strange that he fears using the icons that are Greek to testify of Christ’s godliness. Someone should write a book about it that understands iconology. So “Pattern of the Heavens” became my first book written in 2009. This year in March I completed a second book called “Similitude’s”. One could call it the iconology of Old Testament stories. This new book is a twist on a topic about typology, taking it to new places it has yet to go.
Tim graduated from Ricks College earning an associate degree in general education. He has not gone on to further his studies in any direction. No masters degree, no PHD, preferring instead to be a self made man; husband, Father, follower of Christ, and yes a dreamer.
