The Theology of the Christian Life in J.I. Packer's Thought
Theological Anthropology, Theological Method, and the Doctrine of Sanctification
Imprint: Wipf and Stock
'Given the scope and influence of Packer's theology, it is high time for a serious, critical engagement with his thought. This book does that job with admirable fairness, clarity and perception.'
- Murray Rae, Senior Lecturer in Theology
and Ethics, University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand
'Dr Payne contends that Packer's writings reveal an unresolved tension between his rationalism and his experimentalism. This graciously-argued case merits careful scrutiny, and raises important questions regarding theological method.'
- Alan P.F. Sell, Visiting Professor, Acadia University College of Divinity, Canada
'Don Payne makes a strategic contribution by focusing on Packer's theology of sanctification, and he demonstrates keen insight by pursuing this in conjunction with Packer's theological method and
anthropology. He helps us better understand not only Packer but the Evangelical movement of which he is a part.'
- W. David Buschart, Professor of Theology and Historical Studies, Denver Seminary, Denver, USA
