Many today want their religion to be laid-back, undemanding and fun. Yet Christianity should be anything but an opportunity for relaxed complacency. With this in mind, J. I. Packer offers his biblical reflections on life's tough issues. Discussing topics like pleasure, health, disappointment and holiness, he maps out problematical situations and then superimposes the relevant biblical teachings. Through this work, readers will better understand their own journey through life and come to understand how to navigate it in a godly way.
J. I. Packer (DPhil, Oxford University) serves as the Board of Governors' Professor of Theology at Regent College. He is the author of numerous books, including the classic best-seller Knowing God. Packer served as general editor for the English Standard Version Bible and as theological editor for the ESV Study Bible.
