"Packer is lucid, often illustrates well, and is orderly. A good brief discussion appears on what would be true for Christianity if Jesus had not risen. Packer also has good reasons Christians can validly believe that Jesus did rise. A number of other fine discussions are helpful, such as what heaven means, Christ's public future coming, the Holy Spirit, forgiveness, bodily resurrection, everlasting life, baptism, baptism in the Spirit."
—James E. Rosscup, The Master's Seminary Journal
"Maturity in the spiritual life, like its counterparts in the social and emotional realms, requires conscious effort. Renowned author J. I. Packer gives the benefit of his extended experiences in achieving growth in Christ. Don't expect a book of doctrines that only theologians can understand. Packer clothes doctrine with practical everyday living applications."
—Glen H. Jones, Pulpit Helps
"Packer does an exceptionally fine job of providing simple analyses of profound material. His insights invite further reflection, development, and discussion. The book is worth owning. Anyone who wishes to preach about, discuss, or simply reflect on the 'three great formulae' of the Christian faith and their incorporation into the historic catechisms would be enriched by Packer's Growing in Christ."
—Wilbert M. Van Dyk, Calvin Theological Journal
