J. I. Packer is one of the most significant evangelical theologians of the last one hundred years. In this book, a team of leading scholars--including Chuck Colson, Mark Dever, Timothy George, Bruce Hindmarsh, Edith Humphrey, James Earl Massey, Alister McGrath, David Neff, and Richard John Neuhaus--assesses Packer's impact on evangelicalism over the past half century and asks what more we can learn from him about ministry and the evangelical future. J. I. Packer himself offers a response and reflection. The book also includes a full bibliography of Packer's writings, which is the most comprehensive listing of his writings in print.
