A Brief Book Notice from Books At a Glance
by Fred G. Zaspel
Few theologians are able to write—and speak, for that matter—with the clarity, insight, and precision of J. I. Packer. Reading Packer is always a treat as well as a learning experience.
For decades Packer wrote columns for Christianity Today—editorials, answers the questions from readers, and in-depth articles. These have been collected and made available again in this new book, Pointing to the Pasturelands: Reflections on Evangelicalism, Doctrine, & Culture—“The Best of Christianity Today.”
Informative reading, and always enjoyable.
D.A. Carson writes,
Some writers find it difficult to be boring; Jim Packer was one of them. How many evangelicals do you know who could (or would) write a column titled ‘It’s wrong to eat people’? Or there’s Jim avowing that he is God’s plumber and sewage man. I think I read every one of these pieces when they first appeared; I am grateful beyond words that this new format allows me to read them again.
A great book for bedside reading and a great gift idea for Christmas!
