One of the top 50 books that have shaped evangelicals (Christianity Today, 2006) Platinum Book Award, Evangelical Christian Publishing Association For over 40 years, J. I. Packer's classic has been an important tool to help Christians around the world discover the wonder, the glory and the joy of knowing God. In 2006, Christianity Today voted this title one of the top 50 books that have shaped evangelicals. This edition is updated with Americanized language and spelling and a new preface by the author. Stemming from Packer's profound theological knowledge, Knowing God brings together two important facets of the Christian faith— knowing about God and also knowing God through the context of a close relationship with the person of Jesus Christ. Written in an engaging and practical tone, this thought-provoking work seeks to transform and enrich the Christian understanding of God. Explaining both who God is and how we can relate to him, Packer divides his book into three sections: The first directs our attention to how and why we know God, the second to the attributes of God and the third to the benefits enjoyed by a those who know him intimately. This guide leads readers into a greater understanding of God while providing advice to gaining a closer relationship with him as a result.

Atheists deny we can know God because they deny there is a God to know. But even believers who affirm Gods existence sometimes dont know him. They dont know much about God because they neglect to think much about God and what God has revealed about himself. They accept that there is a God but they dont give much thought to what God is like. And even if they know a great deal about God in the sense of being able to state truths about him, they dont necessarily know him personally and intimately. In Knowing God (previously titled God and the Human Mind) the great Catholic writer, teacher, and publisher Frank Sheed helps readers to know that God exists, to think about who and what God is, and to know God personally. He clears away popular misunderstandings of God, often held by otherwise knowledgeable people. A masterful, lucid writer, Sheed is not timid about tackling the most challenging questions the human mind can pose about God, yet he does not reduce divine mystery to dry propositions or neglect the necessity of faith. Sheed acknowledges the limits of human words and human minds when it comes to God. At the same time, he carefully explains the meaning of Spirit, the role of theology and revelation, including the place of the Bible in the Church, and the experience of God in mysticism. In the final section, Sheed goes into the heart of the mystery of God, exploring God as the Trinity and the difference the Trinity should make in understanding God and ourselves.

"Moses said to the Lord, See, thou sayest to me, Bring up this people; but thou hast not let me know whom thou wilt send with me. Yet thou hast said, I know you by name, and you have also found favour in my sight. Now therefore, I pray thee, if I have found favour in thy sight, show me now thy ways, that I may know thee and find favour in thy sight. Consider too that this nation is thy people. And he said, My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest. And he said to him, If thy presence will not go with me, do not carry us up from here. For how shall it be known that I have found favour in thy sight, I and thy people? Is it not in thy going with us, so that we are distinct, I and thy people, from all other people that are upon the face of the earth? And the Lord said to Moses, This very thing that you have spoken I will do; for you have found favour in my sight, and I know you by name. Moses said, I pray thee, show me thy glory. And he said, I will make all my goodness pass before you, and will proclaim before you my name, The Lord and I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will show mercy on whom I will show mercy" (Exodus 33:12-19). Moses knew God. The Apostle Paul testified, "I myself was convinced that I ought to do many things in opposing the name of Jesus of Nazareth. And I did so in Jerusalem; I not only shut up many of the saints in prison, by authority from the chief priests, but when they were put to death I cast my vote against them. And I punished them often in all the synagogues and tried to make them blaspheme; and in raging fury against them, I persecuted them even to foreign cities. Thus I journeyed to Damascus with the authority and commission of the chief priests. At midday, O king, I saw on the way a light from heaven brighter than the sun, shining round me and those who jouneyed with me. And when we had all fallen to the ground, I heard a voice saying to me in the Hebrew language, Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me? It hurts you to kick against the goads. And I said, 'Who are you, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom you are persecuting, But rise and stand upon your feet; for I have appeared to you for this purpose, to appoint you to serve and bear witness to the things which you have seen me and to those in which I will appear to you, delivering you from the people and from the Gentiles - to whom I send you to open their eyes, that they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me" (Acts 26:9-18). Paul started thus with a personal knowledge of the Lord. After many fresh encounters with the Lord, he said, "That I may know him and the power of his resurrection and may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, that if possible I may attain the resurrection from the dead" (Philippians 3:10-11). Paul knew the Lord and yearned more and more to know Him. His service for the Lord sprang out of his settled and growing knowledge of the Lord. There are many believers today who worship "the unknown God". There are many who have never sought Him until He was revealed to them. There are many who do not know Him. There are many for whom sin is a wonderful attraction because they have never beheld the all-glorious face of the eternal Father nor heard His sweet voice. Their faith is more or less a theory. God seems absent or at best, withdrawn. Do you know God? When did you personally encounter Him? When was your last encounter with Him? The greatest need of the hour is for saints who know God. This book is about knowing God. We consider that the greatest need of the hour is for believers to know their God and render to Him service that is an outflow of this knowledge and intimacy with Him. It is a book for you!

Knowing God for Real reveals the truth about what it takes to not only be saved, but to be living for the Kingdom. The kingdom represents the mindset and stability of the believer, as we are the kingdom of God (Heb.). This book expounds on such topics as: Taking the Mask off- Too many people are in church under false pretenses, wrong motives but put on the church face and mentality (religiosity) based on what they know. They look clean on the outside but inside they are someone else as stated in Jeremiah "they speak with there mouth but there heart is far from me. We lie to ourselves we lie to others in a nut shell we lie to God. Church Age - The church has become compromised, watered down and a home of fame and entertainment. Holiness is no longer the motto. Instead we seek the hand of God and not his face. Power struggle runs rampant and titles has taken the place of True Anointing. This book deals with the true calling of the church and it's ministry of reconciliation, holiness and sanctification. Destiny Revealed - Many believers walk around blind sighted with no vision and no idea of what God has called them to do. Without a vision the people perish. Believers struggle with finding their rightful place in the kingdom because they do not seek to know what is the good and perfect will of God for our lives. Therefore, we just go to church, but never walk in purpose and destiny. Be Blessed and Enjoy Knowing God For Real

Laurel Keyes discusses the importance of KNOWING. Without knowing that one has a particular place in life there is no security and the life is lived in anxiety and helplessness. Dependence upon other people or a government or outside sources are always uncertain. Only a close association with the Spirit-within can provide a feeling of belonging, of being guided, cared for and loved.The question arises, ?Can we know? How do we Know?? Man is a thinking creature. By the very nature of his ability to imagine and create he is displaying his divine inheritance. Therefore he is capable of knowing Truth. Until he does there is no real contentment for him. In all of his seeking for admiration, for love and power and success or escape, there is the driving urge to know. ?What am I? Who am I? Why am I here? What am I supposed To do??An accumulation of knowledge about things is not knowing. That comes either from experience or intuitive flashes. True knowing, as any of you who have experienced those lightning-like breakthroughs, comes from a deep intuitive certitude.This booklet will help you to know the answers to these questions and take you deeper within yourself for your Spiritual growth.

“It is sad indeed that there are so many true and earnest believers who think of a victorious Christian life as a “super deluxe” version instead of normality and, in the words of the author, are “so busy enduring their failure that they have no time to enjoy their faith.” The mystery of how to “be” what as Christians we have been born again to “become” is now an open secret in Jesus Christ—that the secret of a changed life is an exchanged life!
