Item Description...
Who controls this world? God or the devil? Pink asks this in this introductory study of the sovereignty of God. To relieve the panic-stricken believer Pink's answer encourages us to '' Fear not! . . . all things are working together for good to them that love God . . . '' Quoting freely from Scripture he searches the Scriptures and tackles the profoundest questions, responding in language written for the ease and interest of any layperson.

Publishers Description
Handles a doctrine little understood and heard of infrequently in these days of humanism. This book gives God his proper place of supremacy and is a classic on the subject.

More About Authur W. Pink

Arthur W. Pink Arthur Walkington Pink was born in Nottingham, England on 1 April 1886 and became a Christian in 1908, at the age of 22. Though born to Christian parents, prior to conversion he migrated into a Theosophical society (the occult gnostic group which became precursor of the New Age movement, popular in England during that time), and quickly rose in prominence within their ranks. His conversion came from his father's patient admonitions from Scripture. It was the verse, Proverbs 14:12, 'there is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death,' which particularly struck his heart and compelled him to renounce Theosophy and follow Jesus.

Desiring to grow in knowledge of the Bible, Pink emigrated to the United States to study at Moody Bible Institute. He left there after only two months and began his first pastorate in Silverton, Colorado. In 1916 he married Vera E. Russell (8 January 1893 – 17 July 1962), who was from Kentucky. However, he left after just two months for Colorado, then California, then Britain. From 1925 to 1928 he served in Australia, including as pastor of two congregations from 1926 to 1928, when he returned to England, and to the United States the following year. He eventually pastored churches in Colorado, California, Kentucky, and South Carolina.

In January 1922 he started a monthly magazine entitled Studies in the Scriptures. Its relatively small circulation list of around 1,000 included English-speaking Christians worldwide and became the basis of most of his published books.

In 1934 Pink returned to England, and within a few years turned his Christian service to writing books and pamphlets. Moving to the Isle of Lewis, Scotland, in 1940, Pink died of anemia in Stornoway, Scotland on 15 July 1952.

After Pink's death, his works were republished by a number of publishing houses, among them, Banner of Truth Trust, Baker Book House, Christian Focus Publications, Moody Press, Truth for Today, and reached a much wider audience as a result. Biographer Iain Murray observes of Pink, "the widespread circulation of his writings after his death made him one of the most influential evangelical authors in the second half of the twentieth century." His writing sparked a revival of expository preaching and focused readers' hearts on biblical living. Pink is left out of many biographical dictionaries and overlooked in many religious histories.

Arthur W. Pink was born in 1886 and died in 1952.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
MUST READ! Even if youre predisposed to hate it...  Dec 11, 2006
I read this book in the last year of my undergraduate education (last year, 2005). I wish I had read it earlier - there is absolutely no doctrine of Christianity that causes one to be at peace quite like the Sovereignty of God! I picked it up while doing a study on various attributes of God and, thankfully, it became one of my favorite books. It goes well hand in hand with his "Attributes of God", even comparing it with A.W.Tozer's "Knowledge of the Holy"; in fact, I would suggest you read those two, especially Pinks book, before you begin this one, it only helps...

Many people hate Pink because of this book. It was the "famous" chapter on "The Sovereignty of God in Reprobation" that gave many Arminians and some Calvinists that twitch that is associated when his name is mentioned. Be careful what edition you buy, avoid the Banner of Truth copy because they deliberately omit that chapter (and a couple others), claiming that Pink abandoned his veiws regarding that chapter. Whether he did or not is irrelevant; you should get your moneys worth - what he wrote is what you should get, not what other poeple think he believed and would have taken out. I have the Sovereign Grace Publishers copy, its a good copy, complete. I like the ample space they leave for margins, great for note-takers like me.

The first few chapters are a little slow going but necessary, I must admit. The exciting part really starts at chapter 4: "The Sovereignty of God in Salvation". He splits up the chapter into three parts, each three devoted to how the Father, the Son, and the Spirit are Sov. in Salvation. Its got one of the better defenses I have seen for a strictly limited atonement. One thing I loved about this chapter is that Pink made sure he always brought the attention back to God; in fact, this is typical of Pink in almost everything he writes!

The next chapter, "The Sovereignty of God in Reprobation" is one that was, for me, the 'life changer', in the word of one of the commenters below. From my understanding (im not an educated theologian, yet), this is one of the greatest defenses for a supralapsarian position I have ever read. He also calls to mind many Scriptures to point out that God is sovereign even over the death of an unbeliever, and that "The Lord hath made all things for Himself; yea, even the wicked for the day of evil." (Prov. 16:4). He says (p. 105) " In the Day of Judgement the Lord will say unto many, "I never knew you". Note, it is more than simply "I knew you not". His solemn declaration will be, "I NEVER knew you" - you were never the objects of My approbation. Contrast this with "I KNOW (love) My sheep, and am known (loved) of Mine" (John 10:14). The "sheep", His elect, the "few", He DOES "know"; but the reprobate, the non-elect, the "many" He knows NOT - no, not even before the foundation of the world did He know them - He "NEVER" knew them!" This is difficult stuff for people to swallow, but it clearly is what Scripture teaches in Romans 9 (for example, where Pink leads us to immediately after that quote). It is certainly an eye-opener, to say the least! At this point, youre either going to love him or hate him, this is usually when you make up your mind. Either way, you really should hang in there and be honest with yourself and God; ask yourself the question "could Pink possibly be right? Is this what Scripture says?" One has to ask that because if he is, many of us, like me before reading this, would be commiting Idolatry: worshipping a kindly old man rather than the roaring lion of Judah, the God of the living and the dead. The scary thing is, I dont know of a singlle person who's found mistakes with his exegesis. Whether they agree with the final result or not, the man is right in his analysis. Thats why many love him.

Chapters 8 and 9 do a great job at reconciling the Sov. of God and the Human Will and Responsibility. He contains a typical response but spelled out with many Scriptures, examples, and images - almost reminds me of Thomas Watson in the use of his imagery. It also contains some paragraphs that, to me, are worth the price of the book. These four chapters (4, 5, 8, and 9) are gold mines in and of themselves! Whether or not God is Sovereign over every aspect of our lives we are very clearly commanded to "preach the Gospel to every creature" as Pink points out. Whether or not we understand every nuance of God's plan of redemption, we MUST obey and preach the Gospel. To neglect this duty is to miss the point incredibly. Not only does he emphasize this point but he goes on to make a very needed explanation of what freedom truly is: "...the holding in check of sin, the preventing of the exercize of the carnal mind ... was not a DESTROYING of their 'freedom,' rather was it the inducting of them into real freedom" (p 184), ... WOW! (p. 185) "True liberty is not the power to live as we please, but to live as we ought! Hence, the only One Who has ever trod this earth since Adam's fall that has enjoyed perfect freedom was the Man Christ Jesus, the Holy Servant of God, Whose meat it ever was to do the will of the Father." That concept is liberating! When you realize what freedom truly is you, naturally, become humble and suddenly dont have a problem with God electing you! You might wonder "why me, why not the next guy?" Pink would tell us, "The secret things belong to the Lord..." (Deut, 29:29) redirecting our attention back to God, where it belongs, dwelling on ourselves is pride - an act of "unfreedom". We would be instructed to say "even so, Father, for it seemed good in Your sight" (Matthew 11:26).

Anyway, I just thought I'd put out a couple of bits of this book out there. Its beautifully written with many many Scriptures. Almost every single paragraph of the book has a verse, many have more. The appendices in the end are VERY useful. I whole-heartedly recommend this book, buy it and be nourished!

If you want more resources for studying free-will, responsibility, and the sovereignty of God, I would like to direct you to "Bondage of the Will" by Martin Luther (the one translated by JI Packer and OR Johnston) - and if youre really into hurting your self mentally and training your soul hard - "Freedom of the Will" by Jonathan Edwards. Classics ... very hard-core. The second book is so good, but only if youre prepared for a bit of slow and difficult reading (its worth it). If you want a rather simplistic, yet thorough, introduction to Calvinism and the Reformed Faith before tackling any of these books, might I suggest "Putting Amazing Back Into Grace" by Michael Horton.
Understanding the full scope and implication of 'sovereignty'.  Aug 15, 2006
Excellent! Such a clear explanation of sovereignty and the doctrines of grace. This is a 'life-changer'. I read it along with the bible and saw that every doctrine he explainded was clearly validated with scripture! Every christian reading this book will see their understanding deepen and their priorities change as they see God's plan with greater light!
Awesome book  Jul 10, 2006
I have studied this book twice so far, almost 15 years apart. Both readings strengthened my faith in God and encouraged me through tough times. It was written for tough times, when people are struggling with pain and suffering, fear and doubts about God's role on earth. It's not so much written about us, it's written about God, and it convicts us and reminds us of who God is and has to be, or He wouldn't be God, someone or something else would be. It can be a hard truth, but it is a neccesary truth for His own to gain strength and security. Read the book if you need help or want to help someone else.
Your God is in total control  Jul 7, 2006
I personally enjoy Pink's style of writing. His invective against arminianism is powerful and does have it's amusing side. If only he were with us today to say a few words about the modernist liberal and his/her disgraceful and shameless compromising of the Gospel and watering down of the Church's standards.

However, rather than focus on the controversy, we should focus (with the assistance of Scripture and good books like The Sovereignty of God) on the God who is totally in control. Revell in this comfort. Show confidence in his plan. And most importantly, if you are a Christian, rejoice that he chose you from the beginning of time.

Before you really believe in God's total sovereignty, you believe in half of Christianity. You believe in half a God. It is questionable whether you really believe in what could be described as "a god" or "God" at all.

If you go Pink's way, which I have, don't expect popularity. Pink was at times rejected (by arminian & calvinist alike). But you'll rest with the assurance that:

1) God is totally in control of your salvation and life (as abovementioned).

2) God expects evangelism, but doesn't expect you to behave like a lunatic in the process. Salvation begins and ends with him.
Which God???  Dec 23, 2005
Pink does a wonderful job casting light on a key part of God's nature...unfutunately the god he describes is Allah, not the God of the Bible.
