Now, many years later, I still find the same thing to be true. This is a book that I would not hesitate to give to a new believer in Jesus Christ, to help him become firmly established in his faith in Christ and his relationship with God.

The latest edition still retains many valuable spiritual insights, including:
1. 4 effects of truly knowing God.
2. 2 problems in using images to worship God.
3. Relationships between members of the Trinity.
4. 6 aspects of God's love.
5. 4 thoughts about God as Judge.
6. What the Book of Romans says about God's wrath.
7. 4 reasons for spiritual confusion.
8. 3 lessons to learn about God's longsuffering.
Well-written and will be an often used future reference. Great read. I was given a review copy by IVP in exchange for a review and appreciate the opportunity.
OldEd5 Stars Out Of 5Profoundly Convicting and EncouragingJanuary 15, 2018OldEdQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This has become a classic, truly one of the greatest of all Christian books. Packer literally packs it with with so much wisdom that, even as I read, I'm thinking, "I should re-read this every year." If you struggle with the idea that this almighty, invisible God really loves you as a beloved child; if you are aware that you fall short of His holiness; in other words, if you are a human being, I believe this book is for you. Is there anyone more important to my life than the One Who created me and gave His life for me, and to Whom I am accountable?

Steve_425 Stars Out Of 5Rise above lukewarm faith and cheep graceMarch 3, 2017Steve_42Quality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5J. I. Packer's Knowing God is a towering work of understanding God as He has revealed Himself to humanity. In my opinion this should be required reading for all Christians at some point in our lives: it has opened my eyes to aspects of God and His relationship with us that where unknown to me. I have come away with a much richer understanding of what I believe and a better understanding of how to talk about my faith and belief. After reading this book (and pondering and going back to reread...) I have been able to clear away a lot of confusion in my faith which has allowed me to continue growing instead of being stalled on for any number of reason for which I could find no clarification. For example I would particularly recommend the chapter on God's attribute of Love, which helped untie the knots I had gotten into listening to others, reading works that, alas were not grounded well in scripture ("let's cut his out and redefine this...") and hearing sermons from priests and pastors who have decided to get along with the world rather than face the tide of counter current. I feel much more confident being in the world without succumbing to the world. As a point of reference, I have given copies of this away, just randomly, as someone has shown and interest, and now have repurchased this book maybe 4 times. That's not only how good I think it is, but shows how interested others are when they see and hear about it.
