JessicaAge: 25-34Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Knowing GodDecember 26, 2015JessicaAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 3The 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.

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.

StargazerAge: 55-65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5A Truly Spirit-Filled AuthorSeptember 27, 2013StargazerAge: 55-65Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I THOUGHT I knew God! As J.I. Packer so eloquently made me realize, I knew ABOUT God, but I didn't really KNOW Him. "Knowing God" is an absolutely and profoundly revealing and eye-opening contemporary revelation on knowing God. From the very first word of the first chapter to the very last word of the last chapter, I was engrossed, enlightened, and overjoyed by Packer's spirit-filled ability to personally introduce me to the God that I had so often taken for granted. What a grand experience in that now I can honestly state, "I KNOW God!"
