We will follow the chapter topics and content from the highly influential book Knowing God by J.I. Packer in our current teaching series. The book also provides lovely discussion and reflection questions for readers. Packer introduces the book with a very poignant distinction between two perspectives on the matter of the knowledge of God. He provides two self-evident caricatures in the balconeer and the traveler. Both are involved in the story of God, but with two significantly agendas. I suppose we might say it is the difference between knowing about God and knowing God. Both are partners in the dance, but which takes the lead? We will keep this pair of characters top of mind as we embark on a delightful journey together.
