At the age of 87, Dr. Packer is not traveling to lecture much these days, but a few weeks ago (January 16th, 2014) he spoke at the Trinity School for Ministries on a subject of his choice. He says that his desire in his remaining days is to “campaign for a renewal of personal holiness, as a project, as a focus of interest, as a reality—which our churches need, which our country needs, which the world needs at this time in its history.”

Dr. Packer’s two latest books are Weakness Is the Way: Life with Christ Our Strength (Crossway, 2013) and Finishing Our Course with Joy: Guidance from God for Engaging with Our Aging (Crossway, 2014).
