Martin Luther on the bondage of the will. A new translation of De servo arbitrio (1525) Martin Luther's reply to Erasmus of Rotterdam by Martin Luther( Book )

23 editions published between 1931 and 2012 in English and held by 924 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Bondage of the Will is fundamental to an understanding of the primary doctrines of the Reformation. In these pages, Luther gives extensive treatment to what he saw as the heart of the gospel. Free will was no academic question to Luther; the whole gospel of the grace of God, he believed, was bound up with it and stood or fell according to the way one decided it. Luther affirms our total inability to save ourselves and the sovereignty of divine grace in our salvation. He upholds the doctrine of justification by faith and defends predestination as determined by the foreknowledge of God. - Back cover

From back cover -- If God is in control of everything, can Christians sit back and not bother to evangelize? Or does active evangelism imply that God is not really sovereignty at all? J.I. Packer shows in this classic study how false both these attitudes are. In a careful review of the biblical evidence, he shows how a right understanding of God's sovereignty in not so much a barrier to evangelism as an incentive and powerful support for it

A quest for godliness : the Puritan vision of the Christian life by J. I Packer( Book )

8 editions published between 1990 and 2010 in English and held by 335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The suggestion that we need the Puritans ... with all our sophistication and mastery of techniques in both secular and sacred fields--may prompt some lifting of eyebrows ... What could these zealots give us that we need, it is asked. the answer, in one word, is maturity. Maturity is a compound of wisdom, goodwill, resilence, and creativity. The Puritans exemplified maturity, we don't ... They were great believers, great hopers, great doers, and great sufferers. both sides of the ocean (in old England from the authorities and in New England from the elements), seasoned and ripened them till they gained a stature that was nothing short of heroic ...

One faith : the evangelical consensus( Book )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jesus Christ promised a unity for his church. Are there now clear evidences of that within evangelicalism? Or are evangelicals fragmenting into ever smaller divisions? Renowned theologians J.I. Packer and Thomas C. Oden make the case that there is a significant theological consensus holding the evangelical church together. With copious citations from statements produced since 1950 that are widely representative of international evangelical faith, Packer and Oden let these witnesses speak for themselves. Packer and Oden survey several key documents of evangelicalism, particularly the Lausanne Covenant (1974), the Manila Manifesto (1989), The Gospel of Jesus Christ: An Evangelical Celebration (1999) and The Amsterdam Declaration (2000). Charting sixteen different theological themes, they also include references to numerous documents produced by evangelical theological seminaries and societies, mission agencies, parachurch organizations and assorted special convocations. More than informational, One Faith arises out of the hope that it may not only edify the evangelical church but also provide a potential foundation for a new ecumenism. -- Publisher

Praying : finding our way through duty to delight by J. I Packer( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Praying is an action that is of the essence of Christian existence. It involves our beliefs, emotions, values, hopes and fears, certainties and uncertainties, knowledge and ignorance. As J.I. Packer and Carolyn Nystrom explain, this book "is a heart-to-heart affair, in which two Christians who try to pray and wish they prayed better share thoughts about what they are doing with people whom they envisage as being like themselves. ... Our aim is not just to clarify Christian understanding but to foster Christian living. In real praying, head, heart and hands go together." With wisdom, humility and sincerity the authors lead us through different moods of praying, including brooding, praising, asking, complaining and hanging on. In Praying the authors offer hope for those of us who daydream when we try to listen to God and stumble when we try to speak. Yet they don't just teach us about prayer; they challenge and inspire us to do it by pointing us to a clearer realization of the reality of God and his character. Let Packer and Nystrom come alongside you to encourage and guide your active praying to our powerful God, and let him move your praying through mere duty to delight
