Publishers Description Trinitarian theology and the uniqueness of Jesus Christ are two key Christian doctrines. In this volume, Packer strongly defends these beliefs against contemporary challenges. In so doing, he deals with theological issues such as the atonement, justification and universalism. The articles on the work of the Holy Spirit include theological reflections on the charismatic movement. At a time when this was widely condemned in traditional circles, Packer took a positive view of it, although acknowledging weaknesses within the movement as it then existed. He calls for believers to be serious about the Holy Spirit. His articles on this topic are valuable examples of how to apply theological beliefs to controversial issues within the church. J.I. Packer is Board of Governors' Professor of Theology at Regent College, Vancouver. He is widely regarded as one of the most influential thinkers and apologists for Christianity in the twentieth century. He is author of numerous books, including "Knowing God, " "Rediscovering Holiness" and "Concise Theology: A Guide to Historic Beliefs." The Collected Shorter Writings of J.I. Packer contain the majority of shorter pieces published by J.I. Packer over the past thirty years. The articles included in this four-volume set range from short devotional pieces published in church-sponsored journals, to opinion articles for popular journals like "Christianity Today, " to major articles for scholarly journals.
