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.
