Book Review: Weakness is the Way by J.I. Packer
See what I mean...
If you’ve never experienced a Packer book before and are considering this as your first read, might I suggest you pick up a different work– maybe Knowing God or Evangelism and the Sovereignty of God. If you have read Packer before, then it’s likely that you too have been impacted by his heart, mind, and his clarity in teaching difficult doctrines of truth. This book will be a refreshing reminder of why you love and appreciate this man of God.
In a sentence,Weakness is the Way is a conversational exposition on 2 Corinthians 5:6-6:2.
If you’ll allow me to review this book with an analogy: it was as if I was sitting on a cozy rug listening to Grandpa Packer teach me a passage of Scripture, as he rocked in his favorite chair. Like all grandfathers, he stopped from time to time to interject a personal story and a Peanuts or Winnie the Pooh reference (no kidding). But overall, it was nice to spend some time with him- as we’re not sure how much longer he’ll be with us- and edifying, because, even in his old age, he is still careful and clear in his exposition of God’s Word.
