2016 WORLD Magazine's Topping the Top 50One of the top 50 books that have shaped evangelicals (Christianity Today, 2006)Platinum Book Award, Evangelical Christian Publishing Association For over 40 years, J. I. Packer's classic has been an important tool to help Christians around the world discover the wonder, the glory and the joy of knowing God. In 2006, Christianity Today voted this title one of the top 50 books that have shaped evangelicals. This edition is updated with Americanized language and spelling and a new preface by the author. Stemming from Packer's profound theological knowledge, Knowing God brings together two important facets of the Christian faith— knowing about God and also knowing God through the context of a close relationship with the person of Jesus Christ. Written in an engaging and practical tone, this thought-provoking work seeks to transform and enrich the Christian understanding of God. Explaining both who God is and how we can relate to him, Packer divides his book into three sections: The first directs our attention to how and why we know God, the second to the attributes of God and the third to the benefits enjoyed by a those who know him intimately. This guide leads readers into a greater understanding of God while providing advice to gaining a closer relationship with him as a result. Ebook edition includes both Knowing God and the Knowing God Study Guide.

"Week by week and day by day, Packer gives advice that is sure to motivate and inspire readers to reach for more in their quest to unite with God. A fine read for any devoted Christian."

"This is a book that urges us to know about God and then to know God in Jesus Christ. It is a book that serves up real meat—a thought-provoking call to apply ourselves to knowing who God is and to develop a close relationship with Him."

"Something must be said for the staying power of a book like J. I. Packer's Knowing God. With some of the language and rhetoric updated, the foundational elements of the book are as powerful and strong as ever."

"Packer was magisterial in substance, but adopted the tone of a fellow traveler. He convinced us that the study of God 'is the most practical project anyone can engage in.'"

"If I can't put the Bible on this list, I'll choose a Packer book instead. Every national and world leader must seek to know the nations and world in which they serve. And in order to know this world and its people, we must first know the God who shaped and molded us all. Packer simply and powerfully re-introduces us to God: his attributes, actions, and, most important, his grace."

    This book is one I will reread over and over and am using for a men's book discussion group. Packer is brilliant, very efficient with words and uses numerous book and scriptural references. I've read more bible than Packer going through this book. One flag: I think making hyperlinks to all the references overwhelmed the Logos employees as I have reported several errors. Though it can be bothersome, I encourage every reader of the Logos version to join with the Logos staff in the noble endeavor of helping those that read after us by reporting the hyperlink errors. This book is worth the effort.

    This is truly Packer's magnum opus..I have read it several times...now I own it on Kindle and have a hard copy and now, even better, thanks to Logos, have an even more useful copy. I think, as a pastor, it should be required reading (besides the Bible). Great stuff about our Sovereign God..and His covenant love for us.... who are so unlovable
