Masterfully done

Masterfully done. I greatly enjoyed learning about the full scope of Packer’s ministry and service to the Body of Christ. I’ve come away with a great deal of admiration for him, his courage, and his life’s work.

Interesting, comprehensive and inspiring..

If I’m honest, I have not read any J I Packer– although I was aware of his huge output. This excellent biography has made me want to read some for the first time. There are a number of books already on my bookshelf waiting to be read. And I echo the prayer of the subject himself that the Lord would raise up new J I Packers to continue to build his church, Stand for truth and proclaim the unchanging gospel of Jesus. Thank you for writing this excellent book.
