I really enjoyed this book. Packer does a brilliant job of searching the character of God. This book was amazing and will continue to suprise you with nuggets of truth.

I have been a Christian for 48 years and when I read this book it opened up for me a greater understanding and appreciation of God. The postive impact from this book has caused me to search into the deep things of God in the scriptures.

This book is literally a contemporary classic of Christian literature. Packer's treatment of the attributes of God is an excellent read for both the academic and casual reader. He breathes live into what is too often presented as a boring subject. I found his ideas extremely thought provoking and insightful. Even with his thorough understanding of theology, Packer still makes the book a joy to read and reread, as I have done many times in the few years I have owned my copy. For the brand new and seasoned Christian alike, I highly reccomend this book to anyone who wants to really know God.

I read this book when I became a Christian and believe it's the best book i've read that clarifies what it means to know God as apposed to just knowing about Him. A must read for believer and sceptical alike.

The difference between true Christians and people who just call themselves Christians is laid out simply, openly, and very directly.

Good reading for Bible Based Christianity. Helps set the norm for the searching soul.

An in depth yet very readable study on the nature and character of God. From His incarnation, to His qualities of love, justice, jealousy, and adequacy, you'll appreciate getting to know God on a broader and more intimate level, and how knowing God better impacts your daily life.
