J.I. Packer’s classic work Knowing God has engaged forty years’ worth of readers in the pursuit of a more intimate relationship with the Living God of the Bible. Because Scripture reveals everything we need to understand about His wisdom, truth, and goodness, Knowing God examines the pictures, analogies, stories, and history recorded for us to meditate on as we contemplate God’s power and grace.
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.
