Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

J. I. Packer is one of the most significant evangelical theologians of the last one hundred years. He has had a deep and encompassing influence on many renewal movements within North American Christianity and has become a highly regarded leader in the world Christian movement through his many books and lectures around the globe

Here a stellar team of scholars examines some of the major aspects of Packer's life and thought. The contributors analyze and assess Packer's impact on evangelicalism over the past half century, ask what more we can learn from him about ministry and the evangelical future, and suggest a way forward for evangelical theology. J. I. Packer himself offers a response and reflection. The book also includes a full bibliography of Packer's writings, which is the most comprehensive listing of his writings in print.


Charles W. Colson on Packer, Puritans, and postmoderns
Mark E. Dever on Packer and pastoral wisdom from the Puritans
Timothy George on learning Latin (and other things) from Packer
D. Bruce Hindmarsh on evangelical spiritual vitality
Paul R. House on the primacy of Scripture in Packer's ministry
Edith M. Humphrey on Packer's gifts
James Earl Massey on Packer's modern theological classic, Knowing God
Alister E. McGrath on Packer's engagement with the past to enrich the present
David Neff on journalism, theology, and the thirst for truth
Richard John Neuhaus on Christ without culture
Donald J. Payne on Packer's theological method
Carl R. Trueman on Packer's English nonconformist perspective
