By J. I. Packer
C.H. Spurgeon once said, “The highest science, the loftiest speculation, the mightiest philosophy, which can ever engage the attention of a child of God, is the name, the nature, the person, the work, the doings, and the existence of the great God whom he calls his Father…It is a subject so vast, that all our thoughts are lost in its immensity; so deep, that our pride is drowned in its infinity.” He is right; there is no greater subject to consider than God Himself. To that end, J.I. Packer has written one of the greatest books on the importance of knowing this God, a book which has sold over a million copies. In it, you will be confronted with the glorious realities of the nature of God including His majesty, wisdom, love, grace, wrath, goodness, and jealousy. As a result of immersing yourself in this book, you will find yourself thirsting to know God more intimately and to worship Him more fully. I challenge you to pick this book up this summer and dive into the bottomless well of God’s nature. You will not be the same!
