Although Packer was a humble man who repudiated the success ethic, his life nonetheless reads like a success story. His first book, Fundamentalism and the Word of God published in sold 20, copies in its first year and has consistently been in print since.
In , Time magazine named Packer one of the 25 most influential evangelicals. His fame and influence were not something that he set out to accomplish.
He steadfastly refused to cultivate a following. Instead, he made his mark with his typewriter which he used to compose his articles and books throughout his life.
Packer filled so many roles that we can accurately think of him as having had multiple careers. He earned his livelihood by teaching and was known to those who were his students as a professor.
But the world at large knows Packer as an author and speaker. In both spheres, his generosity was unsurpassed. His publishing career was a case study in accepting virtually every request that was made of him.
His signature book, Knowing God which has sold a million and a half copies , began as a series of bimonthly articles requested by the editor of a small evangelical magazine.
His first book, Fundamentalism and the Word of God , began as a talk to a group of students the publisher requested a pamphlet but Packer wrote a book.
Perhaps no one in history has written more endorsements and prefaces to the books of others than Packer did. In both his publishing and speaking, Packer was famous as a Puritan scholar, but he was also a dedicated churchman who said that his teaching was primarily aimed at the education of future ministers, and he spent countless hours serving on church committees.
Packer had a career as a controversialist by necessity rather than choice, he confided to me. Despite this range, Packer consistently self-identified as a theologian, which we can therefore regard as his primary vocation.
When we speak of the legacy left by a deceased person, we think misleadingly in terms of a speculative posthumous legacy that is impossible to predict.
That is his indisputable legacy, and I will highlight what I believe to be the most important ways in which Packer affected the direction of Christianity during his life.
Packer had an extraordinarily strong commitment to the view that the words of the Bible are the very words of God.
He championed the out-of-vogue doctrine of the inerrancy of Scripture. He published books on the reliability of the Bible. He served as general editor of the English Standard Version of the Bible, calling that project the greatest achievement of his life.
Packer gave evangelicals a place to stand in regard to the authority of the Bible. Personally, no Packer legacy has been more important to me than this one, starting from the moment I pulled a paperback copy of Fundamentalism and the Word of God off a bookshelf in a Christian bookstore in my hometown as a college student.
The way in which Packer became a spokesman for conservative evangelicals in the face of liberalizing trends and assaults is another important contribution that he made during his lifetime.
That metaphor applies to multiple causes to which Packer devoted his best efforts. He was a traditionalist who looked to the past for truth.
Packer never lost the common touch that he absorbed in his upbringing, and the same spirit was fostered by his identity as a latter-day Puritan.
Although Packer could write specialized scholarship with the best, his calling was to write mid-level scholarship for the layperson. He was utterly devoid of careerism.
The title of a Festschrift published in his honor got it exactly right: Doing Theology for the People of God.
Packer was not as pained as some scholars have been by never having completed or published his systematic theology because he regarded his informal theological writings for the layperson to be his calling.
His godliness was apparent at every moment, and his presence was a benediction on people who spent time with him.
His words were words of wisdom. He was hardworking, but at the same time generous with his time.
Like the Puritans he loved, Packer believed that the Christian faith is based on clear thinking while at the same time engaging the heart. Packer spoke with precision in the best British manner but he also exuded spiritual warmth.
For those fortunate enough to have met him, we immediately experienced Packer as a kindred spirit in the faith and a fellow traveler of the Way.
The authentic spiritual note was apparent. The reason Packer wrote on such a broad array of subjects is not only that he had an active and capacious mind but also that he was concerned that Christians think correctly on all subjects that relate to life.
Packer had a passion for truth in every sphere. Packer was also a man of paradoxes. He was a lifelong, devoted Anglican, but he moved with equal ease among the nonconformist wing of evangelicalism and was perhaps most influential in Reformed circles.
He was quintessentially British but lived half of his adult life in Canada, and in an additional twist, the sphere of his greatest influence was the United States.
Packer became one of the most famous evangelicals of his day, but he never held a prestigious post at a major university and never filled a high-visibility pulpit on a permanent basis.
He was a mild man with a peaceable disposition, but he consistently found himself at the center of controversy and was often maligned. His life therefore stands as a tribute to the power of the written and published word.
On the strength of his writings, Packer became a widely known speaker as well. In both writing and speaking, his content was always thoughtful, logically packaged, clear, and substantial, and he routinely overestimated the amount of time he had available to present the extensive amount of material he had prepared.
Packer himself ascribed the fame and success that he achieved to divine providence, and it is obvious that this is the case. He did not set out to be famous.
He simply did the task that was placed before him and left the outcome to God. Every year Crown's Australian resorts and casinos attract over 31 million visits.
As at 30 June , Crown held a Crown has since rebranded Aspinall's Club to Crown Aspinall's. On 21 March , Packer resigned as executive chairman of Crown Resorts.
Three months later after a dispute with Murdoch over a senior management appointment Packer resigned his Network Ten board seat.
There was also speculation that Packer resigned due to a conflict of interest with his interests in Consolidated Media Holdings. The first film financed by RatPac was a major success.
In late , Israeli Police started looking into reports that Packer gave members of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu 's family gifts and benefits. Packer, who is trying to gain residency in Israel, has taken the first step and registered with Israeli tax authorities.
Packer first appeared on various wealth lists in , following the death of his father the previous year and the intergeneration transfer of the bulk of Kerry Packer's wealth to his son, James.
That was the first time in 21 years that a member of the Packer family had not topped the list. Packer was engaged to actress Kate Fischer until the couple separated in after five years together and a two-year engagement.
Packer married Jodhi Meares at his home in Bellevue Hill, Sydney in October ; the relationship lasted two years, and the couple separated in Following the breakdown of his first marriage, and the development of a friendship with the actor Tom Cruise ,  Packer began attending the Church of Scientology in Australia , taking courses on the Church's Dundas business centre in Packer later married part-time model and singer Erica Baxter ,  whom he wed in the equivalent of a civil ceremony on 20 June Packer was involved in a public physical brawl at Bondi Beach in with David Gyngell , a long-term friend and head of Channel Nine.
