Knowing God by J.I. Packer

KnowingGodPackerIn response to the invitation of blogger Tim Challies of www.challies.com, I’m reading the book “Knowing God” by J.I. Packer. First published in 1973, this has become an evangelical classic and I’m excited to dive into it with hundreds of other believers.

Tim has created a public Facebook group for folks to share their thoughts while reading the book. You can check it out here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/970505979659637/

As of this morning, 678 people have joined! It’s not too late to jump in. Why not be next?

You can get the book on Amazon here:
http://www.amazon.com/dp/083081650X

And you can access a free audio version on YouTube (50 videos).  Go to YouTube and search on “All J.I. Packer: Knowing God”.  Or Click Here.

The reading schedule is simple: two chapters each week over the next 11 weeks. Tim will post his thoughts on his blog every Thursday. Here is Tim’s article on the first two chapters. He’s an excellent writer, too!

    Dear Wayne.
    I have been interested in reading Knowing God by J.I.Packer since you first mentioned this book.
    Now the book is on its way to me.
    The link you gave in your post above to YouTube audio version does not work, but I found something here: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=J.I.+Packer%3A+Knowing+God
    God bless you.
    Love from Susanne.
