Product Description

J. I. Packer's Knowing God has become a classic of the Christian faith. Why? While it gives us information about God with clarity and grace, it does much more---it aids us in actually knowing him, in building our relationship with him, and helps draw us closer to him in love and worship. This 20th anniversary edition of Packer's classic has new Americanized text, reader-friendly type, and a new preface. Study guide not included.

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. This 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.

Editorial Reviews

"Week by week and day by day, Packer gives advice that is sure to motivate and inspire readers to reach for more in their quest to unite with God. A fine read for any devoted Christian."
"This is a book that urges us to know about God and then to know God in Jesus Christ. It is a book that serves up real meat—a thought-provoking call to apply ourselves to knowing who God is and to develop a close relationship with Him."
"Something must be said for the staying power of a book like J. I. Packer's Knowing God. With some of the language and rhetoric updated, the foundational elements of the book are as powerful and strong as ever."
"Packer was magisterial in substance, but adopted the tone of a fellow traveler. He convinced us that the study of God 'is the most practical project anyone can engage in.'"
"If I can't put the Bible on this list, I'll choose a Packer book instead. Every national and world leader must seek to know the nations and world in which they serve. And in order to know this world and its people, we must first know the God who shaped and molded us all. Packer simply and powerfully re-introduces us to God: his attributes, actions, and, most important, his grace."

    This profoundly written work answers questions about God and Christ Jesus that are fundamental to those who have spent some time inspecting thier faith for weak spots. Furthermore, Packer does not take the easy road only applying the scriptures that support his perspective as he includes inconsistent biblical perspectives and forms solid and logical conclusions. This book is a must read for those looking to solidify their faith by knowing why they believe, building foundational knowlege they can share with others.

    The aim of Knowing God is precisely that, for the reader to come to know God as He is presented in the Bible, and by God Himself. Each chapter focuses on a different attribute of God, and quite often extends into how that attribute relates to us and His plan of salvation.

    As a whole, this is an excellent book. There is no greater desire than to know God better and more intimately. All of the information presented within these pages is Gospel-centered and Bible-based, and deserves to be studied fully.

    However, I often felt like I was reading the same thing again and again. There were sections that I felt could have been shorter, or areas that I felt would have been better referenced for further individual study than elaborated, only to end up repeating ideas and scriptural references. I think it made the book feel much longer than it actually is, and maybe even a little disjointed at times.

    All of that said, I did take much away from reading this book. Anything that moves you to be closer to God deserves a read. To close on a positive note, my favorite chapters come toward the end of the book, chapters twenty and twenty-one. These two chapters focus on how God communicates with and guides us, and the dangers of the preaching of Gods grace without His wrath, respectively. These were the chapters that I went through the quickest, without the feeling of too much repetition.

    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.
