Product Description

J. I. Packer's Knowing God has become a classic of the Christian faith. Why?

This 20th anniversary deluxe hardcover edition of Packer's classic has new Americanized text, reader-friendly type, a new preface, and the complete study guide.

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, and this 20th anniversary 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.

    My mens group uses Knowing God and we have rated it as excellent in getting to know Him better.

    I personally wish it were available on Kindle where I do most of my first time reading but more importantly do all of my referencing and reviewing and store my notes and bookmarks for each book.

    A classic, insightful book that explains what it means to truly know God and have a relationship with Him. This is true Christianity. Come taste and see that the Lord is good. Bow to His Lordship and know the love, peace, and joy of our Savior, God, and King!

    Excellent book. The chapters are very well written and very thought provoking. The study guide is a great review and learning tool as well. Extremely highly recommended for anyone who is seeking a deeper relationship with God.

    I've owned this book for at least several years and only got around to reading it this past month. My loss. The truths perceptively delivered by Mr. Packer in this book could have profited me these past few years. But all is not lost as my faith and understanding is strengthened for the future by the wisdom in its pages. Mr. Packer pulls no punches and does not let one off with sloppy theology or facile thinking; he meticulously lays out the truth with great persuasion. This book is not one that is read in a single sitting. It will take time and contemplation to complete it, but the journey is worth the commitment.
