J.I. Packer, one of the most influential theologians of the 20th century, died on Friday, July 17. He was 93.
Packer authored hundreds of Christian books and articles over more than half a century, but he’s perhaps best known for his 1973 work Knowing God. Publishers have sold more than 1.5 million copies since the book’s release and have translated it into more than a dozen languages.
