Overview

In this collection of articles written over forty years, Packer sets out his beliefs about the authority of Scripture and the principles that should be applied when interpreting it. Important topics such as the adequacy of human language, upholding the unity of Scripture, and challenges in biblical interpretation are considered in the first two sections: God’s Inerrant Word and Interpreting the Word. In the final section, Preaching the Word, Packer turns his attention to pastoral leaders and the importance of correct and responsible expository preaching.

J. I. Packer

J.I. Packer (1926–2020), or James Innell Packer, is considered one of the most influential evangelicals in North America. Packer committed his life to Christian service after hearing lectures from C. S. Lewis while studying at Oxford. In the 1950s, Packer was ordained a deacon and priest in the Church of England. Before moving to Canada, he lectured at several schools, including Tyndale Hall in Bristol, Latimer House in Oxford, and Oak Hill Theological College in London.

Packer was also a professor of theology at Regent College in Vancouver, British Columbia, and served as the honorary president of the Latimer Trust. Packer has written and edited several books: he was the editor of the English Standard Version Bible, the New Bible Dictionary, and the New Dictionary of Theology, and his books include Illustrated Manner and Customs of the Bible and A Quest for Godliness.
