Years before answering the call to "Swim the Thames" and set off on the Canterbury Trail, I had the privilege to read works by some of our modern Anglican minds such as John Stott and J.I. Packer. Stott has joined that mighty cloud of witnesses and is now watching us run the race. J.I. Packer is still with us and every day that we have him here should be counted a blessing.
Packer has contributed greatly to the Catechism of the Anglican Church in North America, which is still in draft form. Anecdotally, I've have heard that these were made on a manual typewriter. I'm putting together my reflections on that document and will be posting them soon.
J.I. Packer has shared his thoughts on the importance of confronting heresy with Christianity Today Magazine. You can find them here.
