Dr. J.I. Packer: “19 Lectures on the Attributes of God”

September 29, 2007

There was a certain amount of controversy recently over an essay that was somewhat anti-AngloCatholic and was erroneously attributed to Dr. J.I. Packer.  It is my hope that the resolution of this helps to correct any misperceptions of him formed as a result of that essay, for Dr. Packer is truly a first-rate theologian, and a gentle soul as well.

As proof of both of these assertions I offer 19 Lectures on the Attributes of God by Dr. Packer, particularly the introductory lecture, The Character of God.  I think you will find his theological knowledge amazing, and his lectures to be edifying.

    I’m glad you like these; as you know it is important to know about God’s attributes and character. John Calvin wrote this in his Institutes:

    “It is certain that man never achieves a clear knowledge of himself unless he has first looked upon God’s face, and then descends from contemplating him to scrutinize himself” (I, 1.2).
