    my hope is that en enjoys family & friends as they care for him and tell him what they see to let his imagination do the rest

    Not to worry if God still calls him to active ministry by writing, the voice to written word software these days is unbelievable. Just look at cell phone voice to text apps. His lack of sight will not be holding him back.

    SJ,
    Packer is a bit of a technophobe.
    He writes his books out in long hand on paper, then types them out on a… typewriter.
    He’s decided this is it and we can all honor that.

    he has decided? God’s man? i’d rather lose my sight than my mind and this man’s mind is packed with Divine Viewpoint, so who knows if or how he’ll still be used, eh?

    just sayin

    The greatest book I ever read about God was Packer’s “Knowing God.” Very scholarly yet written in terms layman like me could understand. I still love that book. I wish him the very best as he transitions to his new station in life.

    “God knows what He is up to.” A summary of a lifetime of studying the Sovereignty of God.
    Amen. May the man be blessed and able to enjoy doing ‘less’ work and continue to commune with his Lord, as seeing the invisible. God bless him.

    89 years old…..He’s allowed to sit back and rest in the Lord.

    Let us thank God for this good man and his great journey. Let us seek to know the one he knows and be known of our God. Oh God bless this man and let your favor increase even now.

    Em…that was my very first thought. Dr. Fee has Alzheimer’s and that has been terribly hard to watch. I know that the blindness will be an enormous challenge, as his life is so marked by writing. It will be such a tremendous change to just the habits of the day….but others are correct that his mind is so full of great truths.

    He is such a kind man. Praying for great grace, and yes for a wonderful time of being cared for by family and friends.

    It was be disingenuous for me to claim him as my father in the faith, simply because I’ve only read one of his books, but Knowing God absolutely blew me away, absolutely.
    Also, he was a stark reminder of the type of man God can and has used throughout church history without the need of the Moses Model.
