Overview

J. I. Packer and the Evangelical Future: The Impact of His Life and Thought by Timothy George

J. I. Packer is one of the most significant evangelical theologians of the last one hundred years. In this book, a team of leading scholars—including Chuck Colson, Mark Dever, Timothy George, Bruce Hindmarsh, Edith Humphrey, James Earl Massey, Alister McGrath, David Neff, and Richard John Neuhaus—assesses Packer's impact on evangelicalism over the past half century and asks what more we can learn from him about ministry and the evangelical future. J. I. Packer himself offers a response and reflection. The book also includes a full bibliography of Packer's writings, which is the most comprehensive listing of his writings in print.
