Gobs of you have been asking for the source of the Packer quote. Thanks for your interest. It can be found in his famous introduction to John Owen’s The Death of Death in the Death of Christ. Probably on the first page or two, if you have the Banner of Truth edition of that book. Or, it can be found in that same introduction, serving as chapter 8 (entitled ‘Saved by His Precious Blood’: Introduction to John Owen’s The Death of Death in the Death of Christ) in Packer’s book A Quest for Godliness (Crossway, 1990), pages 125-126. The book is called Among God’s Giants in the UK, I think.
