Packer’s impact on my life was through the books he wrote. Here are my top five JI Packer books, with a quote from each book.
Several years ago I ordered a copy of God is Love: A Biblical and Systematic Theology by Gerald Bray. Upon delivery, I put the book on my “to read” shelf, aka the black hole of my office. Recently I delved into my black hole and pulled Bray’s book off the shelf. Almost immediately I wished I had never put God is Love at the end of my reading queue.
Recently the Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood (CBMW) released the “Nashville Statement.” This document is intended to present God’s revealed purposes for human sexuality. The response to the Nashville Statement has been interesting, to say the least.
