J. I. Packer’s book Knowing God radically changed the way I understood God.
I read it for morning devotions as a freshman in college (1979-1980). At the time, I could only digest small portions, but each paragraph led to deep contemplation of the God I had come to know through my Savior, Jesus Christ.
I am truly not aware of a book by Packer that doesn’t live up to this standard (and I’ve read many of them). This is why I encourage you to read his new little book, “Weakness.is the way.”
“God does not allow us to stay with the idea that we are strong. O, we may have that idea. But the Lord is going to disabuse us of it one way or another and it will be good for us and give glory to Him when he does so.” (J. I. Packer).
Enjoy this video by J. I. Packer telling his story about weakness.
