Overview

J.I. Packer argues that for Christians, weakness should be a way of life. Yet many believers desperately try to be self-sufficient, resenting their needs and limitations. Reflecting on his own life experiences of frailty—having been hit by a truck at a young age and now facing the realities of aging—Packer teaches the importance of embracing frailty, and looking to Christ for strength, affirmation, and contentment. Find here a path from discouragement to freedom in light of our all-sufficient God.

If you, like me, struggle with discouragement over your weaknesses, you need to read this book. We all long to be admired for our strengths, yet we all find ourselves, ‘beset with weakness’ (Heb. 5:2). Does this mean we’re stuck living with discouragement? No! There is an escape to joyful freedom. Dr. Packer knows the way. Walking us through 2 Corinthians, he shows it to us so that we, like Paul, can ‘boast all the more gladly of [our] weaknesses.
