Weekly Ebook Deals from J.I. Packer

Best-selling author J. I. Packer is one of the most influential teachers of our day. Over his lifetime of ministry, Packer has faithfully served the Church by calling it back to orthodoxy and a grounded, clear-headed faith.

In honor of Dr. Packer’s newest release, Weakness is the Way (watch the video), we’ve discounted the digital format of several of his books (and some he’s edited) which call Christians to know and live their orthodox faith.

Our prayers echo those of Dr. Packer himself,

That God may use this material (1) to ground thoughtful Christians more firmly and clearheadedly in their faith, (2) to stir them out of the sluggishness into which theological and spiritual undernourishment has brought so many of us, and (3) to help us all take to heart the marching orders given us by our Lord and his apostles—who charge us first to be and then to make disciples everywhere, starting from where we are.” (Preface, Taking God Seriously).

To learn more about each book, click on the covers below to find them at Crossway.org. You will also find the ebooks at their reduced prices on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Bookshout, Christianbook.com, eChristian, Vyrso, or your participating independent bookstore’s site. Discounted prices available through 5/20/2013.*
