Reviews - What do our customers think?
just not enough....  Oct 14, 2000
From the time I read Knowing God in the early 80s to the retreat where I was privledged to meet Dr Packer, and through all of his books that I have read, I harbour great respect and affection for the man. So when I saw this book as I was on my way out of town I quickly glanced it through and snatched it up. The title, the snippets, the reviews, all sang that this was the book to give refreshment to my tired, aching spirit.

Unfortunately it didn't deliver. I have heard Dr Packer speak a number of times and each time the "audience" ended up in focussed worship. So it is difficult for me to grasp how these wispy chapters can have been taken from his talks. They are fairly shallow and although he hints at it, he never quite seems to get to the manifestation of God's heart towards those about whom he writes.

In fact I just finished the book 2 days ago and I'd be hard pressed to give even one direct quote or idea from it. The book was more like spiritual cotton candy that just melts in your mouth than chicken noodle soup that warms your stomach and heals your aches.

 
A very touching devotional book  Jul 18, 2000
This book is based on a series of J.I. Packer sermons showing how God has used imperfect people such as Jacob, Samson, Manoah and others. In it's brief, simple and moving way, Packer's words also give the rest of us hope to continue with life's struggles. Easy to read and perfect for end of the day thought and reflection, I recommend it highly.
