Praise for the Print Edition

Like many people, I first discovered what it meant ‘to take God seriously’ through reading J.I. Packer’s books. It is thus an honor and a delight to be asked to write a commendation for his latest work, a basic catechetical plea for sober, modest, thoughtful and orthodox theology. In a church world dominated by Barnum and Bailey circus antics and the brash triviality borrowed from the world around in the name of ‘engagement,’ Dr. Packer remains a truly engaging and gentlemanly advocate for those old paths which are ever fresh.

—Carl R. Trueman, professor of church history, Westminster Theological Seminary
