4.0 out of 5 stars Detailed and flows quite well, 27 Mar 2010

McGrath does a good job off capturing J.I.Packer, his life, the man and his works. He also handles Packer's dispute with the Lloyd Jones camp with fairly and with good grace. A good buy, and a good read!

4.0 out of 5 stars Packer by name and nature, 7 Oct 2005

This review is from: To Know and Serve God: Biography of James I. Packer (Paperback)
To Know and Serve God - A Life of James I. Packer by Alister McGrath
This biography of the foremost evangelical Anglican theologian is also a history of evangelicalism in England from the 1940s to the 70s when Packer left for Canada. The writer is sympathetic to Packer and his theology. Packer represents the depths of reformed Anglicanism. The Church of England may now be wider in its evangelicalism but it is so so shallow compared with Packer.
The genius of Packer is well described as a man who can make theology heart warming as did Calvin, and convey it in a way the person in the pew can understand. Co-belligerence with Roman Catholics against liberalism is explained as being without compromise of Packer's Protestantism.
Read it and be thankful for what God has done through Packer and others in the last half century.
