How should Christians behave toward one another and toward the world? How are we to be the face of Christ when seeing God so difficult? How do you find strength in God when your world is in ruins?
J. I. Packer cuts to the core of these and other challenging questions in this collection of compelling essays. In four sections, the master theologian examines the church as it is, the church as it should be, evangelism, and Christian living. Serious students of the Bible and those who want to follow Jesus - not as the world says, but as Jesus himself taught - will discover tremendous wisdom and life-changing spiritual guidance in this volume. Packer is not one to ignore or gloss over; heed his admonitions and embrace his encouragements as you learn to follow after God's heart in all areas of living.
