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!"
I read this book every year or more....a treasure for a new christian, a pastor, or anyone who wants to increase their knowledge of GOD and grow in their relationship with Him. It is a wonderful tool for this journey we are on. I bought this copy to give as a gift by the whisper of the Spirit.
