Profound book about the God of the Bible

First, I must admit that Knowing God is the first book by Packer that I have read. Luckily, I was not disappointed. Considered a modern Christian classic by many, Knowing God lives up to its reputation. In it Packer presents a balanced view of God - who He is, what He is like, what He has done for us, and what He expects from us in return. I had a pretty good understanding of some subjects before reading this book, but found myself learning a lot as Packer challenged me to dig deeper into the Bible, and apply my faith in order to get a clearer picture of God.I really enjoyed this book because I have been looking for "deep" Christian books that are neither full of fluff (like a lot of the recent self-help style Christian books), or too full of theology to grasp (thick, boring tomes that most Pastors can't even finish). I found that Knowing God fits nicely into this category. Packer's thoughts about God are deep, yet concise. He includes a lot of scripture to support his perspective, which indicates that it is not written for a "new" or "baby" Christian, and he also includes some historical and academic material as well. I liked the fact the he quotes many sources which enabled me to write down the titles to other books which go deeper into subjects of interest to me.Overall, I recommend this book to Christians who have a firm grasp of their faith, and are looking for guidance on how to grow a deeper relationship with God. One of the keys is gaining a better understanding of God, and this book offers an excellent starting point for that journey.

A Real Eye Opener - In My Top 50 All time Favorite Books

Fortunately for me I read this book about the third year that I was a Christian. The book had such an impact on me that several years later I read it again. Packer shoots a straight shot into the heart of Theology Proper. The attributes, nature, and actions of God are delineated with great care and sound theology. The book is divided into three major parts and each part discusses the God who is, Knowing God, and the God who acts. For a better grasp of theology proper (direct study of God Himself) this book along with a solid translation of the Bible will carry you a long way.
