Product Description

In this collection of writings from one of the most well-known theologians of the modern era, Packer strongly defends Trinitarian theology and the uniqueness of Jesus Christ against contemporary challenges. He calls for believers to be serious about the Holy Spirit, and his insights on this topic provide a template for applying theological beliefs to controversial issues within the church. Chapters include issues such as the universal and particular nature of God's love, the problem of universal aims and, as mentioned, the Holy Spirit.

Publisher's Description

"Collected writings on the Trinity, Christ, and the Holy Spirit"
In this collection of writings from one of the most well-known theologians of the modern era, Packer strongly defends Trinitarian theology and the uniqueness of Jesus Christ against contemporary challenges. In so doing, he deals with theological issues such as atonement, justification and universalism. He calls for believers to be serious about the Holy Spirit, and his articles on this topic are valuable examples of how to apply theological beliefs to controversial issues within the church.
The articles range from short devotional pieces published in church-sponsored journals, to opinion articles for popular journals like Christianity Today, to major articles for scholarly journals.

    J.I. Packer is one of the most well known and beloved authors whose works have influenced many Christians. I cut my theological teeth with his most well known work, Knowing God, and have since then loved finding authors who would give me a big picture of who God is. To this day Knowing God is still at the top of my list of most influential books that I've read. It is with this excitement that I received Revelations of the Cross.

    Revelations of the Cross is a collection of previously published writings by Packer. These writings come from many different publications and this book brings them all together nicely. Because of the various sources and topics covered the book can feel a bit disjointed, but reading it as a devotional type book (one chapter at a time) proved to be a blessing to me. Some of these writings, like the chapter on Covenant Theology, come from introductions that Packer has written for other's books. In these chapters Packer delivers a nice overview of the topic, giving the reader a nice fly-by and perhaps intriguing us to dig deeper.

    The chapter titled What Did the Cross Achieve? is probably the best short writing on penal substitutionary atonement ever written. I have read it before and am still blessed every time I read it. In a day when the Cross, specifically what Christ achieved, is often misunderstood it is a blessing to have such a concise defense of penal substitutionary atonement. The chapter titled: The Love of God: Universal and Particular continues this theme in talking about the nature and the extent of the atonement and how God's love is shown in His predestination of His elect for adoption.

    On their own each of these 18 chapters provides the reader with a short study or introduction to a vast array of topics. All combined they prove to be a beneficial book for Christians to grow in their knowledge of God and His ways.

    I received a free copy of this book from Hendrickson Publishers in exchange for an honest review.
