"One of the top 50 books that have shaped evangelicals"
-Christianity Today, 2006
Recipient of the ECPA's Platinum Book Award, J. I. Packer's classic has helped Christians around the world discover the wonder, the glory, and the joy of knowing God. This edition is updated with Americanized language and spelling and features a new preface by the author.
Stemming from Packer's profound theological knowledge, Knowing God makes a helpful distinction between knowing about God through solid doctrine and knowing God through a close relationship Jesus Christ. Written in an engaging and practical tone, this thought-provoking work brings together these two important facets of the Christian faith and seeks to transform and enrich the Christian understanding of God.
Explaining both who God is and how we can relate to him, Packer divides his book into three sections. The first directs our attention to how and why we know God, the second to the attributes of God, and the third to the benefits enjoyed by a those who know him intimately.
This guide leads readers into a greater understanding of God and provides advice to gaining a closer relationship with him as a result.
