Explaining the essentials of the faith, renowned theologian and author J. I. Packer outlines the core commitments that are common to those of us who profess belief in Jesus. Here is a call to discipleship in mere Christianity - the business of taking God seriously.
"Like many people, I first discovered what it meant 'to take God seriously' through reading J. I. Packer's books... In a church world dominated by Barnum and Bailey circus antics and the brash triviality borrowed from the world around in the name of 'engagement,' Dr. Packer remains a truly engaging and gentlemanly advocate for those old paths which are ever fresh."?
