Book #14: God Has Spoken by J.I. Packer

Number of pages: 174

I've read a couple of other books by J.I. Packer, so I had some idea of what to expect. This is an updated version of a book originally written in 1979, and is primarily about Christian scripture.

As with the previous books I had read by J.I. Packer, this was not an easy book, quite densely written, so while I enjoyed reading it, I didn't exactly remember that much about what I read; I just tried to take away a few key points, mostly about the authenticity of all Bible scripture.

It's not a great book for people new to Christianity, but nevertheless it was very well-written, and showed the extent of its author's knowledge.

Next book: Swing Time (Zadie Smith)
