J.I. Packer

Recommendation:   4/5

Description of author:   J.I Packer is the Board of Governor’s Professor of Theology at Regent College in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Comments:  In this book Packer summarizes Christian doctrine by looking at 18 important Biblical words including Scripture, Lord, sin, grace, justification, and death.  The order is well thought out, beginning with revelation in chapter 1 and logically proceeding through sin and salvation and sanctification and finally death.  This is an excellently written, clear and insightful introduction to (or review of) basic Christian theology.
