Philip S, Roeda5 Stars Out Of 5June 14, 2004Philip S, RoedaJ.I. Packer sets out by differentiating between God and His creatures (man). In what ways man has nothing in common with his creator. Packer at length describes as being self existent, infinite, eternal, unchangeable, omniscient, and omnipresent. After these aspects of God are fully described, Packer continues by clarifying analogies between man and God. These are called perfections. Man can be holy, Man can love, man can show mercy, man can be truthful, man can be good, man can be patient, and man can be just. Packer describes how God is perfect and these aspects about any man are imperfect.
Noah5 Stars Out Of 5November 6, 2003NoahWhat J.I. Packer has done is taken Christianity and broken it down for the layman to understand it. This book covers most of the major topics in Christianity, such as correct doctrine, correct living, prayer, the trinity, the Lordship of Christ, the Soverignty of God, etc. While being readable, this book is suprisingly deep, offering spiritual meat for those who are malnourished by the average Christian Living book. This book is my favorite Christian Living book of all time and I highly recommend it.
Daniel Harris5 Stars Out Of 5March 20, 2003Daniel HarrisAmazing! Awesome! Everyone who reads this review-buy this book today. The first two chapters of the book have been more than worth the price of the entire book for me. If I would recommend one book that I have read aside from the Bible that every Christian should read this might be it. It is very, very deep, but very readable. I have never read anything like. I think anyone who reads it will benefit from it greatly.
