What J. I. Wanted

‚ÄčA childhood accident sidelined this theologian in training. When he was young, Dr. J.I. Packer ran into the street and was struck by a bread truck. After his recovery, he asked his parents for a bicycle so he could ride like everyone else. Do you know what they gave him? What did you get instead of what you wanted and how has that changed you? We'll talk about it on Chris Fabry Live.

His last teaching position was as the Board of Governors' Professor of Theology at Regent College in Vancouver, B.C., in which he served from 1996 until his retirement in 2016, due to failing eyesight.
