"...if anyone makes the assistance of grace depend on the humility or obedience of man and does not agree that it is a gift of grace itself that we are obedient and humble, he contradicts the Apostle who says, "What have you that you did not receive?" (1 Cor. 4:7), and, "But by the grace of God I am what I am" (1 Cor. 15:10). (Council of Orange: Canon 6)

    J.I. Packer - Newly Inducted into the Hall of Contemporary Reformers



    illustration by Steve Hesselman

    Yes, I know, some will think that due to ECT this choice controversial, but God has used Packer as an instrument to produce so much good and help so many people grow in grace and Christian piety, that I thought it was a no-brainer. Please take the time to check out the enormous amount of available online resources from Packer near the bottom of his page... Click Here to Enter

    I thank you for adding Dr. Packer. He has done more for the global resurgence of Reformed theology than any of the other members in the "Hall of Contemporary Reformers." Knowing God has blessed the church immensely for many years, and will continue to bless many generations to come.

    That's a great picture... he has done alot for Protestant Christianity

    William Gurnall back in the day made a controversial decision to stay in the Church of England while his fellow Puritans left. Today we are largely bereft of any biographical information on this man who wrote the classic book on spiritual warfare. Hopefully, the ECT thing won't do the same to JI Packer. Folks I know who have dealt with him speak of him with the highest regard. I suppose he was my introduction to reformed theology. Thank you for the biography of him.

    How would you (anyone) respond to the following comment:
    Why should Packer be among men like James White and R.C. Sproul? And so what if Packer has done more than any of the other's at spreading Reformed theology. You can love particular work and characteristics of a man, but you can judge him to be a disappointment as well.

    I would like to thank Mr Packer for the truth I've discovered through his book, `Knowing God'
    thank you for putting into words what was happening in my daily walk with Christ.
    I also appreciated your article in the book `My prayer life'
    Thank you once again. God Bless
