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.
I am leading a study group of 15 women longing for a deeper knowledge of God. We have all been humbled and motivated to concentrate our minds and hearts in our study of who God is and how we might apply this knowledge as it affects our prayer life, our worship and our daily living.
It is not a book to read casually. It demands one's complete attention. It is challenging and thought provoking but well worth the time and effort.
The study book is very helpful. We prepare one chapter each week and are encouraged to write out our answers.
