A few weeks ago, I came across an essay by JI Packer, talking about the balance between human and divine in the Bible. It's published in one of his Collected Shorter Writings volumes, but now I can't recall or find the essay title, and don't have access to the books. 

Any help? 
Thanks in advance

Is it, by chance, titled “Divine Sovereignty and Human Responsibility”? I found it through Google at: https://www.hopefaithprayer.com/salvationnew/divine-sovereignty-and-human-responsibility-j-i-packer/

No, but thanks!

The article itself isn't available online. I only found the title in a footnote somewhere.

I'm in the midst of writing my dissertation proposal, and have so many paper and electronic books around me right now, I have no idea where I might have seen it. I just remember googling and it wasn't available anywhere.

Is this the essay you were looking for?

"Inerrancy and the Divinity and Humanity of the Bible"  in Engaging the Written Word of God  (Peabody, MA: Hendrickson Publishers; Paternoster: Thinking Faith, 1999)
originally published in The Proceedings of the Conference on Biblical Inerrancy (Nashville: Broadman, 1988)
