Publisher's Description

One of the top 50 books that have shaped evangelicals ( Christianity Today, 2006)
Platinum Book Award, Evangelical Christian Publishing Association For over 40 years, J. I. Packer's classic has been an important tool to help Christians around the world discover the wonder, the glory and the joy of knowing God. In 2006, Christianity Today voted this title one of the top 50 books that have shaped evangelicals. This edition is updated with Americanized language and spelling and a new preface by the author. Stemming from Packer's profound theological knowledge, Knowing God brings together two important facets of the Christian faith— knowing about God and also knowing God through the context of a close relationship with the person of Jesus Christ. Written in an engaging and practical tone, this thought-provoking work seeks to transform and enrich the Christian understanding of God. Explaining both who God is and how we can relate to him, Packer divides his book into three sections: The first directs our attention to how and why we know God, the second to the attributes of God and the third to the benefits enjoyed by a those who know him intimately. This guide leads readers into a greater understanding of God while providing advice to gaining a closer relationship with him as a result.

Author Bio

J.I. Packer is regarded as one of the most influential evangelicals in North America. He is Board of Governors' Professor of Theology at Regent College in Vancouver, British Columbia and his writings include books such as , , (Crossway) and . He has preached and lectured widely in Great Britain and North America and served as General Editor of the of the Bible published in 2001, and Theological Editor of the Study Bible version. In 2014, Packer was named Author of the Year by the Association of Logos Bookstores. He is a frequent contributor to and an executive editor of and has written numerous articles published in journals such as and He received a BA, MA and PhD from Oxford University.

Editorial Reviews

"Week by week and day by day, Packer gives advice that is sure to motivate and inspire readers to reach for more in their quest to unite with God. A fine read for any devoted Christian."
"This is a book that urges us to know about God and then to know God in Jesus Christ. It is a book that serves up real meat—a thought-provoking call to apply ourselves to knowing who God is and to develop a close relationship with Him."
"Something must be said for the staying power of a book like J. I. Packer's Knowing God. With some of the language and rhetoric updated, the foundational elements of the book are as powerful and strong as ever."
"Packer was magisterial in substance, but adopted the tone of a fellow traveler. He convinced us that the study of God 'is the most practical project anyone can engage in.'"
"If I can't put the Bible on this list, I'll choose a Packer book instead. Every national and world leader must seek to know the nations and world in which they serve. And in order to know this world and its people, we must first know the God who shaped and molded us all. Packer simply and powerfully re-introduces us to God: his attributes, actions, and, most important, his grace."

    This review was written for Knowing God.
    The aim of Knowing God is precisely that, for the reader to come to know God as He is presented in the Bible, and by God Himself. Each chapter focuses on a different attribute of God, and quite often extends into how that attribute relates to us and His plan of salvation.

    As a whole, this is an excellent book. There is no greater desire than to know God better and more intimately. All of the information presented within these pages is Gospel-centered and Bible-based, and deserves to be studied fully.

    However, I often felt like I was reading the same thing again and again. There were sections that I felt could have been shorter, or areas that I felt would have been better referenced for further individual study than elaborated, only to end up repeating ideas and scriptural references. I think it made the book feel much longer than it actually is, and maybe even a little disjointed at times.

    All of that said, I did take much away from reading this book. Anything that moves you to be closer to God deserves a read. To close on a positive note, my favorite chapters come toward the end of the book, chapters twenty and twenty-one. These two chapters focus on how God communicates with and guides us, and the dangers of the preaching of Gods grace without His wrath, respectively. These were the chapters that I went through the quickest, without the feeling of too much repetition.

    This book was given as a gift to family members. It will help you understand what the Christian life is meant to be and change how you see yourself in light of the truth.

    I recommend this book to all who want a more meaningful relationship with their Savior. Christianity should not be a set of rules and activities, but an ever deepening relationship with your Creator, Sustainer, and Lord.

    I THOUGHT I knew God! As J.I. Packer so eloquently made me realize, I knew ABOUT God, but I didn't really KNOW Him. "Knowing God" is an absolutely and profoundly revealing and eye-opening contemporary revelation on knowing God. From the very first word of the first chapter to the very last word of the last chapter, I was engrossed, enlightened, and overjoyed by Packer's spirit-filled ability to personally introduce me to the God that I had so often taken for granted. What a grand experience in that now I can honestly state, "I KNOW God!"
