In comparing notes with others, I have found that my own experience is not uncommon: It was through reading C. S. Lewis's works that I learned to value Christian thinking, but it was through devouring J. I. Packer's writings that I came to love theology. These four volumes capture most of Packer's more significant fugitive writings, ranging from short devotional pieces published in obscure Church magazines, through op-ed pieces for popular magazines such as Christianity Today, on to meaty introductions to new editions of great historical works and major addresses, and articles originally appearing in collaborative volumes and scholarly journals. It, I fear, may be as close as we get to a Packer systematic theology. Manifest throughout is Packer's unique blend of pithy, alliterative style and profound spiritual substance.
