A Masterpiece by a Master TheologianBy David Burnette
“Knowing God is a masterpiece by a master theologian. It serves as a wake-up call for those who are asleep to the majesty of God.” — R.C. Sproul
For our monthly featured resource, we like to highlight not only brand new books, but also some that have stood the test of time (relatively speaking). Originally published in 1973, J.I. Packer’s Knowing God definitely fits this latter category.
We’ll be highlighting portions of the book in July in order to entice you to take up this book for the first time, or possibly to revisit it in order to be edified again. If you’re intimidated by theology, let Packer teach you the basics, and be encouraged to know God intimately.
From Chapter 1, The Study of God:
“Knowing about God is crucially important for the living of our lives…we are cruel to ourselves if we try to live in this world without knowing about the God whose world it is and who runs it…Disregard the study of God, and you sentence yourself to stumble and blunder through life blindfolded, as it were, with no sense of direction and understanding of what surrounds you. This way you can waste your life and lose your soul.” (19)
