Living for the Glory of God ~ Vivir para la Gloria de Dios

Tuesday Truth ~ J.I. Packer

A good book and the Good Book. And my pen.

I got the ESV Bible today, plus the ESV Study Bible. I’d have bought them a long time ago if somebody had told me what a chick magnet they are.

The excellent translation is a nice bonus.

J.I. Packer has served as a professor of theology at Regent College in Vancouver, Canada for a number of years. He has been known for a number of years for his powerful books. In January of 2016, he announced that his ministry would significantly decrease because he is losing his eyesight (to read a humbling interview with Packer on losing his eyesight, click here).

While he has written a number of books, he is best known for his work Knowing GodYou might also consider Evangelism & the Sovereignty of God, Growing in Christ, or his Concise Theology (but know that he writes from a Reformed and Anglican perspective). To learn more about J.I. Packer I would recommend Leland Ryken’s book J.I. Packer: An Evangelical Life.
