Product Description

From the Publisher

What does it mean to be a Christian? Find out here.
When so many crave the latest self-improvement plan or the most recent religious experience, J. I. Packer turns our attention to realities far larger and longer-lasting than anything our self-absorbed society can offer. In this book he lays out before us his grandest panorama yet of the magnificent landscape we call the Christian faith.

He begins with the only proper foundation for spiritual experience--the central doctrines of God, the Bible, Christ and the Holy Spirit. From here he leads us to the principal elements of the Christian life--growth in Christ, prayer to our Father, worship of our God, fellowship with other believers and our responsibilities as citizens. His sweeping survey of this spiritual terrain concludes appropriately with a consideration of the ultimate end of our existence here on earth--the reality of an afterlife, God's judgment and our reign with the ascended Christ.

While spiritual fads fade from the scene as quickly as they arise, here is the lasting, unchanging truth of the God who has been our help in ages past and will be our hope for years to come.

J. I. Packer has taught theology at Regent College in Vancouver for many years and is the author of Evangelism & the Sovereignty of God and Truth & Power. He is best known as the author of Knowing God. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars My review of J.I. Packer's "Knowing Christianity." 30 Sep 2014
By Eugene Kimble Ph.D. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I read all the way through, and was thoroughly delighted in the read.
In fact I had a Young Adult, whom I am mentoring, read part of it.
Then, I bought a 2nd one to give to a friend.
