Packer Ph. Packer is the author of numerous books, and is considered one of the most influential Christian theologians today. I I , directing every process and ordering every event for the fulfilling of his own eternal plan. An antinomy exists when a pair of principles stand side by side, seemingly irreconcilable, yet both undeniable…You see that each must be true on its own, but you do not see how they can both be true together.

To teach the gospel is his first responsibility: to reduce it to its simplest essentials, to analyze it point by point, to fix its meaning by positive and negative definition, to show how each part of the message links up with the rest- and go on explaining it till he is quite sure that his listeners have grasped it.

Conviction of sin is essentially an awareness of a wrong relationship with God Conviction of sin always includes conviction of sins Conviction of sin always includes conviction of sinfulness. A message about Christ. We must not present the Person of Christ apart from His saving work. We must not present the saving work of Christ apart from His person. The demand is for repentance as well as faith. The former tells man what he should be; the latter settles what he will be.

Both aspects of God are facts, though how they are related in the mind of God is inscrutable to us. It does not affect the urgency of evangelism. It does not affect the genuineness of gospel invitations.

It is true that Christ came specifically to save those whom the Father has given Him. But it is also true that Christ offers Himself freely to all men as their Savior, and guarantees to bring to glory everyone who trusts in Him as such. It should make us bold. It should make us prayerful.

Book Review: Evangelism and the Sovereignty of God, by J. I. Packer

Review It was a crisis of faith that ebbed and flowed over three years. Divine sovereignty God as King and human responsibility before him God as Judge can both be equally true. So what should we do with these seemingly irreconcilable, yet undeniable biblical principles? Divine sovereignty and human responsibility coexist, and we must affirm both truths from Scripture and let them guide and govern our lives Back to my opening question: If God is sovereign, then why do I share the gospel?

50 Quotes from J.I. Packer’s “Evangelism and the Sovereignty of God”

Packer delivers a comprehensive, but still brief, explanation of the seemingly incompatible relationship between human responsibility in evangelism and Gods sovereignty in salvation. There are many Christians who say that believers who emphasize the sovereignty of grace and unconditional election do so to the neglect of human responsibility and divine accountability. I used to be one of them! Yet we are still responsible as bearers of this good news! We must allow these doctrines to exist as they do in Scripture; side by side! Packer is thorough yet easy to understand in his points and takes care to avoid misinterpreted extremes in his theology. In reading this book, I feel like I have found a biblically sound explanation of these topics…and I think the Holy Spirit agrees!
