What the community says about Knowing God
- "Knowing God is not I think for a reader who has lost his or her faith. But it is a very good read for educated Christians and others who want to understand the tenets of the Christian faith better. I'm a non-religious reader but I took something from this book, and think of it as one of the better books on Christianity I've encountered. "
- "Knowing God is an important read for anyone looking to deepen and explore their faith. There is so much wonder in religion and Packer manages to highlight the many joys of looking toward God. The book is organized in a way that you can bounce around and read different parts depending on what yo want. Very meaningful and worth sharing with friends and family."
- "Does the book, Knowing God, by James I. Packer, deserve the status it has received as being a "classic"?Absolutely!!! You will not for a moment regret reading Packer's reflections on the attributes of God, the work of Christ on the Cross, and the living of the Christian life. Though I have a few quibbles about Packer's criticism of the use of icons and images in worship, his digs at Keswick consecration and surrender teaching, and his skepticism over the Charismatic reliance on hearing God. My concerns are minor compared to the great worth of Packer's thoughts on God in his greatness, the Son in his finished work, and the Holy Spirit in his enabling power. Be ready to grow spiritually as Packer walks you into a deeper and more profound understanding of God's Word. *Knowing God* is a wonderfully written book about God himself-- someone we need to know personally and intimately. I can't believe that it took me twenty-five years to finally take the time to read it."
- "I think this is a book for people who already have a lot of faith, specifically Christian, and want to revel in that feeling. As a non-religious person, I found it somewhat interesting, but I don't think it had the effect my aunt hoped. :) That said, I think it would be a great book for bible groups, to help continue/inspire new conversations - I'm "loaning" it back to my aunt for that specific purpose!""J.I Packer's "Knowing God" has changed my life. I was drawn in from the beginning and just couldn't put this book down. Since my divorce, I haven't been able to go to church or pray. I thought I had lost my faith, but this book has brought me closer to God. I have loaned it to my mother, who has been battling depression. If I could give it 10 stars, I would. Thank you Mr. Packer!"

in What are the best Self-help books
- "I would have to say the Bible is the best Catholic book, but this one comes in a hard second as a Christian book. It's not necessarily Catholic, so i wouldn't put it in that category, but Christian, yes, Evangelical actually. It centers around what a relationship with God is. Great read for any Christian religion."
- "Explaining both who God is and how we can relate to him, Packer divides his book into three sections: The first directs our attention to how and why we know God, the second to the attributes of God and the third to the benefits enjoyed by a those who know him intimately. This guide leads readers into a greater understanding of God while providing advice to gaining a closer relationship with him as a result."
