Publisher's Description

The Collected Shorter Writings of J.I. Packer contain the majority of shorter pieces published by J.I. Packer over the past thirty years. The articles included in this four-volume set 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.
In this collection of articles, Packer sets out his beliefs about the authority of Scripture and the principles that should be applied when interpreting it. Important topics such as the adequacy of human language and the authority of reason and the Scripture's own view of itself are considered. Packer then applies his principles of interpretation to such controversial topics as creation, the role of women and eschatology. In the final section, Packer turns his attention to pastoral leaders and the importance of correct and responsible expository preaching.
J. I. Packer is Board of Governors' Professor of Theology at Regent College, Vancouver. He is widely regarded as one of the most influential thinkers and apologists for Christianity in the twentieth century. He is author of numerous books, including "Knowing God," "Rediscovering Holiness" and "Concise Theology: A Guide to Historic Beliefs."
