Pondering Anglican Woes by J. I. Packer + David Virtue

Pondering Anglican Woes

An Interview with J. I. Packer

At 76, James I. Packer is one of the world’s most distinguished Anglican scholars and theologians. He has spent more than half a century in Christian ministry as a pastor, theologian, teacher, author, and lecturer. Among the more than 300 books, articles, monographs, and contributions to symposia he has penned over the years are commentaries on the Bible, studies in Puritan theology, devotionals, and a series of “Knowing” books. Notable among his books have been Hot Tub Religion: Christian Living in a Materialistic World, in which he grappled with contemporary culture, Evangelism and the Sovereignty of God, Knowing God, and Fundamentalism and the Word of God.

In 1979, after teaching and preaching for 27 years in England, where he served as warden of Latimer House, Oxford, and principal of Tyndale Hall, he became Professor of Systematic and Historical Theology at Regent College in Vancouver. In 1989 he was installed as the first Sangwoo Youtong Chee Professor of Theology, and in 1996 he became Board of Governors’ Professor of Theology. He also serves as Executive Editor and Visiting Scholar of Christianity Today and contributes to a variety of theological journals. Dr. Packer is married with three children.
