Begin your day In God's Presence with one of today's most trusted evangelical thinkers! Drawn from the vast treasure-trove of J.I. Packer's writings, these readings emphasize the central theme of a sovereign God who is also our loving heavenly father. "Don't treat these words as if they were inspired," Packer says, "but . . . use them as a springboard to see how high your heavenly Father lifts you." Forthright, thoughtful, and challenging! 380 pages, softcover, Harold Shaw.
James I. Packer says of the devotional life:
"To rush to God randomly babbling about what is on our mind at the moment, with no pause to realize his greatness and grace and our own sinfulness and smallness, is at once to dishonor him and to make shallow our own fellowship with him."
Dr. Packer has taught generations of Christians how to know God better. Now he helps us draw closer to God each day with insightful readings. Focusing on what it means to be a part of the family of God, these meditations will lead you into the Father's presence trough Scripture, prayer, and practical wisdom.
Both scholarly and down-to-earth, James I. Packer is recognized worldwide as a leading evangelical theologian. He is currently Board of Governors Professor of Theology at Regent College in Vancouver and an active writer, lecturer, and spiritual advisor. He is the author of dozens of books and articles, including Truth & Power: The Place of Scripture in the Christian Life, Knowing Christianity, and the classic Knowing God.
