Packer & Nicole

Tullian Tchividjian has posted some moving thoughts on two of evangelicalism's most important theologians: J.I. Packer and Roger Nicole. Neither of these men are long for this world and so it is important for the church to recognize their impact and continue to be challenged by their lives. They have both fought the good fight. Tullian also links to his favorite Packer books as well as a classic essay that serves as the introduction to John Owen's "The Death of Death in the Death of Christ." Do yourself a favor and read the essay. It is one of the most compelling defenses of God's sovereign grace in salvation that I have ever read.

Just a note: Roger Nicole's authorized biography was published by Solid Ground Christian Books in 2006. He is a dear brother in Christ!
