JI Packer on weakness

Weakness is the Way by J. I. Packer from Crossway on Vimeo.

JI Packer, who wrote the book, "Knowing God," talks about weakness in the Christian life. Christianity is an amazing movement in that it runs counter to many of the world's beliefs: salvation to non-Jews, salvation by grace alone through faith alone, respect and equality for women, love for others as love for self. Here, JI Packer argues for the different definition of strength in the Christian life and the acknowledgment that that true strength can never be had without an acknowledgment of one's weakness.

I like listening to old, godly men, especially if they happen to write with typewriters, as is the case here.
