Alister McGrath is known for his excellent biographical skills. He has not disappointed us! This book is an excellent account of the life, ministry and theology of J.I Packer. Packer is a giant of a man, his impact on modern day reformed evangelicals is incalculable. One cannot talk about our age without talking about J.I Packer. McGrath helps us see this man for who he truly was and be encouraged by this great example.
If you are interested in the life of Packer, please pick up this short yet all-encompassing biography. I found this book very encouraging! Highly recommended!
