Speaking about the Bible

The word which God addresses directly to us is (like a royal speech, only more so) an instrument, not only of government, but also of fellowship. 181 more words


He Knows Me

What matters supremely is not, in the last analysis, the fact that I know God, but the larger fact which underlies it–the fact that he knows me. 180 more words

I’ve recently been reading through J.I. Packer’s excellent book, A Quest For Godliness: The Puritan vision of the Christian life.

書評:認識神 Knowing God (J.I. Packer 巴克著)

世界知名的福音派神學大師巴克的經典 『認識神』一書 相信幫助了許多的基督徒跟慕道友來認識基督徒的信仰。其文字深入淺出卻內容不失深度,他盡量地以淺顯易懂的文字來闡述基督教的信仰,既適合慕道朋友,也適合初信與信主已久的基督徒。既有福音信息,也有針對基督徒成長需要知道的基本聖經教義。 讀起來,讓人感覺不像是在讀枯澀的系統神學,使得對於在任何信仰階段的讀者都很適合。

同一本書竟能使慕道朋友,初信者,信主許久的基督徒,及教會領袖都能從中受益,認識聖經中的基本信仰內容,恐怕在福音派神學家中實屬不多。 這實在是我對所有慕道朋友及基督徒朋友都會介紹推薦的好書。

在每一章的結尾,巴克博士都有一段類似『回應與應用』的文字,幫助讀者不是只是了解一些知識而已,還要能應用在自己的生活當中。中文譯本,我個人覺得 福音證主協會 的翻譯還算不錯。該譯本在每一章的結尾,還有許多可以用來參考跟討論的問題,也是可以使用的。但對能夠以英文原文來閱讀的朋友,我還是會推薦讀英文。
