In a lecture given at Trinity School for Ministry, renowned theologian J.I. Packer said:
“I have got to the point where if I’m asked if there’s any crusade or emphasis that I want to major on for any time that remains to me…I would like to campaign for a renewal of personal holiness as project and a focus of interest and as a reality which our churches need, which our country needs, which the world needs at this time in its history.”
Watch as Packer discusses the vital importance of pursuing personal holiness:
J.I. Packer is regarded as one of the most important theologians of our day. Born in 1926, he has made a tremendous impact in the evangelical world through his preaching, lecturing, and authoring of dozens of books including Knowing God and A Quest for Godliness.
