Product Description

Sanctification, election, sin, faith, and 14 other words that might be hard to define or else have other more common definitions in today's world are given free rein to be biblically defined by a master theologian. This classic by J. I. Packer takes a careful look, one at a time, at words and terms that even Christians sometimes struggle with. By simply covering one word in each chapter ('holiness' and 'sanctification' are taken in a single chapter), Packer slowly unfolds the intricacies of Scripture while pacing the reader at a comfortable clip. Packer has long been ahead of the curve in solid Biblical teaching and exegesis, and in this book, 25 years after it's initial publication, it is clear that his writings have stood the test of time to remain a useful tool for all Christians today.

Publisher's Description

If the modern world can be characterised by one thing it is probably the enormous increase in the number of words around - but that increase has also been accompanied by a seemingly corresponding decrease in understanding. It is the irony of the information age that instead of bringing clarity it has raised uninformed opinion to the same level as truth.


The church has also not been faultless. Rather than discuss ideas in order to come to some settled agreement, the church has been characterised as trying to make words mean different things in order to accommodate differences.


But the church should be a beacon of light to the world. The church has the words of eternal life.


J. I. Packer is a master wordsmith. He is also gifted with the ability of showing where truth lies in complicated reasoning. These skills combine to make Words from God a fascinating read - and a life-changing one.


The 18 words are Death, Devil, Election, Faith, Fellowship, Grace, Holiness, Justification, Lord, Mediator, Mortification, Reconciliation, Regeneration, Revelation, Sanctification, Scripture, Sin & World.

Author Bio

Jim Packer is named by Time Magazine as one of the 25 most influential evangelicals alive. He is the Board of Governors' Professor of Theology at Regent College, Vancouver, BC, Canada.

Editorial Reviews

"This is a good book for young Christians seeking a more profound understanding of doctrine and a good refresher course for older hands"

"A doctrinal Solomon... Mediating debates on everything from a particular Bible translation to the acceptability of free-flowing Pentecostal spirituality, Packer helps unify a community that could easily fall victim to its internal tensions."
