  • Weakness Is The Way

    $9.45

    Most people think of weakness as purely negative. But true Christianity embraces weakness as a way of life. In this collection of meditations on 2 Corinthians, renowned Bible scholar and theologian J. I. Packer reflects on the central importance of weakness for the Christian life, exhorting readers to look to Christ for strength, affirmation, and contentment in the midst of their own sin and frailty. Now in his nineties, Packer meditates on the truths of Scripture with pastoral warmth and exegetical care, drawing on lessons learned from the experience of growing older and coming face-to-face with his own mortality. Overflowing with wisdom gleaned from a life of obedience to Christ and dependence on his Word, this encouraging book ultimately directs readers to the God who promises to be ever present and all-sufficient.

  • Evangelism And The Sovereignty Of God

    $10.75

    Foreword
    Preface
    Introduction
    1. Divine Sovereignty
    2. Divine Sovereignty And Human Responsibility
    3. Evangelism
    4. Divine Sovereignty And Evangelism

    Additional Info
    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 sovereign at all?

    J. I. Packer shows in this new edition to the popular IVP Classics how both of these attitudes are false. In a careful review of the biblical evidence, he shows how a right understanding of God’s sovereignty is not so much a barrier to evangelism as an incentive and powerful support for it.

    With over 100,000 copies in print, Evangelism and the Sovereignty of God is truly a classic that should be read by every Christian.

  • Faithfulness And Holiness

    $17.99

    J. I. Packer’s tribute to J. C. Ryle details the service of this faithful, nineteenth-century minister and is published alongside Ryle’s classic essay Holiness. As eldest son and heir to a fortune, John Charles Ryle had a hopeful future in Britain’s Parliament until the day his father declared bankruptcy. In a single moment he was stripped of everything. Ryle was devastated. And yet, had this not happened, J. C. Ryle would likely not have entered the clergy and become one of the most influential evangelical leaders of the nineteenth century. From his ministry Ryle went on to publish many important works and vigorously defend the purity of Reformed faith. Most significantly, Ryle’s personal tragedy led to a steadfast faithfulness and holiness in his life. Presented here is a newly repackaged and republished edition of J. I. Packer’s brief biography of the life of J. C. Ryle alongside the great preacher’s classic work Holiness. Admiring Ryle’s passion for God’s Word, Packer aims to open up the life of this godly man for a contemporary audience. Readers new to Ryle’s work will especially benefit from a first encounter with his essay on holiness.

  • Rediscovering Holiness : Know The Fullness Of Life With God (Reprinted)

    $15.99

    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.

  • In My Place Condemned He Stood

    $14.20

    If ever there was a time and a need for an enthusiastic reaffirmation of the biblical doctrine of substitutionary atonement, it is now. With this foundational tenet under widespread attack, J. I. Packer and Mark Dever’s anthology plays an important role, issuing a clarion call to readers to stand firm in the truth. In My Place Condemned He Stood combines three classic articles by Packer–The Heart of the Gospel; his Tyndale Biblical Theology Lecture, What Did the Cross Achieve; and his introductory essay to John Owen’s The Death of Death in the Death of Christ–with Dever’s recent article, Nothing but the Blood. It also features a foreword by the four principals of Together for the Gospel: Dever, Ligon Duncan, C. J. Mahaney, and Al Mohler. Thoughtful readers who are looking for a compact classic on this increasingly controversial doctrine need look no farther than this penetrating volume.
