Knowing God by J. I Packer( Book )

71 editions published between 1970 and 2013 in 7 languages and held by 1,501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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....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. --

Luther and Erasmus : free will and salvation by Martin Luther( Book )

26 editions published between 1931 and 2012 in English and held by 937 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Bondage of the Will is fundamental to an understanding of the primary doctrines of the Reformation. In these pages, Luther gives extensive treatment to what he saw as the heart of the gospel. Free will was no academic question to Luther; the whole gospel of the grace of God, he believed, was bound up with it and stood or fell according to the way one decided it. Luther affirms our total inability to save ourselves and the sovereignty of divine grace in our salvation. He upholds the doctrine of justification by faith and defends predestination as determined by the foreknowledge of God. - Back cover
Evangelism & the sovereignty of God by J. I Packer( Book )

35 editions published between 1961 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 624 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From back cover -- If God is in control of everything, can Christians sit back and not bother to evangelize? Or does active evangelism imply that God is not really sovereignty at all? J.I. Packer shows in this classic study how false both these attitudes are. In a careful review of the biblical evidence, he shows how a right understanding of God's sovereignty in not so much a barrier to evangelism as an incentive and powerful support for it

A quest for godliness : the Puritan vision of the Christian life by J. I Packer( Book )

9 editions published between 1990 and 2010 in English and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The suggestion that we need the Puritans ... with all our sophistication and mastery of techniques in both secular and sacred fields--may prompt some lifting of eyebrows ... What could these zealots give us that we need, it is asked. the answer, in one word, is maturity. Maturity is a compound of wisdom, goodwill, resilence, and creativity. The Puritans exemplified maturity, we don't ... They were great believers, great hopers, great doers, and great sufferers. both sides of the ocean (in old England from the authorities and in New England from the elements), seasoned and ripened them till they gained a stature that was nothing short of heroic ...

Rediscovering holiness by J. I Packer( Book )

10 editions published between 1992 and 2014 in English and Chinese and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There was a time," writes renowned theologian J.I. Packer in this classic book on biblical holiness, "when all Christians laid great emphasis on God's call to holiness. But how different it is today! To listen to our sermons and to read the books we write, and then to watch the zany, worldly, quarrelsome way we behave, you would never imagine that once the highway of holiness was clearly marked out for Bible-believers." In this revised and updated edition of Rediscovering Holiness, the highway is once more clearly marked out for a new generation of readers, pointing to true freedom and joy, both now and in eternity

One faith : the evangelical consensus( Book )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jesus Christ promised a unity for his church. Are there now clear evidences of that within evangelicalism? Or are evangelicals fragmenting into ever smaller divisions? Renowned theologians J.I. Packer and Thomas C. Oden make the case that there is a significant theological consensus holding the evangelical church together. With copious citations from statements produced since 1950 that are widely representative of international evangelical faith, Packer and Oden let these witnesses speak for themselves. Packer and Oden survey several key documents of evangelicalism, particularly the Lausanne Covenant (1974), the Manila Manifesto (1989), The Gospel of Jesus Christ: An Evangelical Celebration (1999) and The Amsterdam Declaration (2000). Charting sixteen different theological themes, they also include references to numerous documents produced by evangelical theological seminaries and societies, mission agencies, parachurch organizations and assorted special convocations. More than informational, One Faith arises out of the hope that it may not only edify the evangelical church but also provide a potential foundation for a new ecumenism. -- Publisher
Hear my heart : what I would say to you by Billy Graham( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"America's pastor has gone home. But his lifelong message, his passion for the gospel, and his compassion for people still echo in Hear My Heart. This intimate work, a compilation of articles that spans Billy's ministry from 1955 to 2014, invites you to sit down with Billy and hear in his own unvarnished words the things that moved his heart regarding relevant issues of the day. The Biblical convictions he abided by. The reasons and regrets behind some of his decisions. And the wisdom he gained in his century on this earth. Hear My Heart also presents stirring tributes, collected over many years, about Billy and his legacy from those who knew him best in all the seasons of his life--including his family members, his friends, and his co-laborers in ministry. Though their lives may have changed, Billy's impact remains the same, and their words are beautifully preserved in essays that reflect the power of his ministry. This book was assembled and printed to be released upon his passing so that his final words would bring comfort and peace to the many lives he touched."
Praying : finding our way through duty to delight by J. I Packer( Book )

6 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in Chinese and English and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Praying is an action that is of the essence of Christian existence. It involves our beliefs, emotions, values, hopes and fears, certainties and uncertainties, knowledge and ignorance. As J.I. Packer and Carolyn Nystrom explain, this book "is a heart-to-heart affair, in which two Christians who try to pray and wish they prayed better share thoughts about what they are doing with people whom they envisage as being like themselves. ... Our aim is not just to clarify Christian understanding but to foster Christian living. In real praying, head, heart and hands go together." With wisdom, humility and sincerity the authors lead us through different moods of praying, including brooding, praising, asking, complaining and hanging on. In Praying the authors offer hope for those of us who daydream when we try to listen to God and stumble when we try to speak. Yet they don't just teach us about prayer; they challenge and inspire us to do it by pointing us to a clearer realization of the reality of God and his character. Let Packer and Nystrom come alongside you to encourage and guide your active praying to our powerful God, and let him move your praying through mere duty to delight
