James Innell Packer (born 22 July 1926), usually cited as J. I. Packer, is a British-born Canadian Christian theologian in the low-church Anglican and Calvinist traditions. He currently serves as the Board of Governors' Professor of Theology at Regent College in Vancouver, British Columbia. He is considered one of the most influential evangelicals in North America. He has been the theologian emeritus of the Anglican Church in North America since its inception in 2009.
Who is God? What is he like? How can we know him? These are monumental, but deeply important, questions with which all Christians must grapple. Theologian and scholar J.I. Packer’s classic is designed as a starting place for understanding what he contends is humanity’s most important journey.
