J. I. Packer is widely recognised as a pillar of 20th-century evangelicalism and has had a profound impact on millions of Christians living today. Now in his late eighties, Packer still exerts an enormous influence on pastors and laypeople around the world through his many books, articles and recorded lectures - works that overflow with spiritual wisdom related to the Christian life.
In this soul-stirring book, pastor Sam Storms explores Packer's legacy and profound insights into the Christian life, including prayer, Bible study, the sovereignty of God and the Christian's fight against sin, offering readers the chance to learn from a true evangelical titan.
"The most noteworthy feature of this book is the author's ability to assimilate vast quantities of data, condense it, and put it into a systematic format. This begins with a wonderful biographical chapter and then proceeds to Packer's theology. A brief version of the systematic theology that Packer has long promised the world, this book is a triumph of scholarship." - Leland Ryken, Emeritus Professor of English, Wheaton College
