The Mens and Ladies groups at Redeemer Church in Hudson, Ohio will be reading and studying through the well known and foundational book by J.I. Packer, Knowing God
this Fall. We look forward to having you join us if you're in the area
for a great time of fellowship and edification. Check our website for more details.
One of the top 50 books that have shaped evangelicals (Christianity Today, 2006) Platinum Book Award, Evangelical Christian Publishing Association For
over 40 years, J. I. Packer's classic has been an important tool to help
Christians around the world discover the wonder, the glory and the joy
of knowing God. In 2006, Christianity Today voted this title
one of the top 50 books that have shaped evangelicals. This edition is
updated with Americanized language and spelling and a new preface by the
author. Stemming from Packer's profound theological knowledge, Knowing God
brings together two important facets of the Christian faith— knowing
about God and also knowing God through the context of a close
relationship with the person of Jesus Christ. Written in an engaging and
practical tone, this thought-provoking work 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 while providing advice to gaining a
closer relationship with him as a result.
