HASH(0x951ea090) out of 5 stars Much practical application 17 April 1998
By Wayne Sehmish wls@logicworld.com.au - Published on Amazon.com
Once again Pink doesn't dissappoint. In this easy to read volume, Pink looks at the events and happenings of the life of Elijah. He analyses these events, drawing attention to easily overlooked details and historical context. Pink then makes very clear application to the life of the Believer. In doing this, the reader is both challenged and stirred. Pink's ability to exergete a passage in this way is a lesson in itself. He relates the Scriptures in the manner in which I'm sure God intended them when they were written. If you love the Word of God, you will thoroughly enjoy this book.

HASH(0x9508c4ec) out of 5 stars What A Mighty God We Serve 2 Dec. 2007
By E. J. Ludwig - Published on Amazon.com

This incredible book gives an exposition of the life and ministry of Elijah as revealed to us in Holy Scripture. Every nuance of meaning in Scripture is discussed. Dr. Pink shows himself a great partisan of Elijah's boldness and integrity.
Even as Elijah expressed his self pity at Mt. Horeb, and experienced the tender mercies of the Lord, I found myself not merely reading about Elijah, but felt as though I were actually present at the events described. It seemed I was made privy to the innermost thoughts of Elijah, and the mind of God Himself was revealed to me. Dr. Pink's commentary unlocks the Scripture.
This book not only gives tremendous insight into Elijah's attitudes and behavior as well as to the `ways of the Lord,' but is filled with useful suggestions for every believer and for ministers of the gospel. We are called to greater boldness in speaking out against sin. We are called to greater fervency in prayer, and Pink notes "the motive prompting them [our prayers] and the petition itself must alike be right." (p.158)
Elijah's prophetic ministry, especially as revealed by this volume, is a great antidote to the sentimentality and diluted preaching that is offered up from many pulpits today.

HASH(0x951eac0c) out of 5 stars A Man Very Jealous for the Lord of Host 2 Feb. 2010
By A. Sutono, a.k.a., Birdey The Observer - Published on Amazon.com

Rarely do I go deep into the Old Testament accounts or learn significant insightful lessons there due to my limited knowledge of their cultural and historical background. Arthur Pink's study on Elijah, therefore, is a great blessing as he combines sound exegesis with hermeneutics that has to do not only with Elijah, but also most importantly God's dealing with His people, His servants, the wicked, and the world in general. In some cases, however, Pink goes too far into some quaint interpretations when he states that Jezebel is a type or prophetic symbol of Rome's Papacy, and Naboth of Christ (p.259). And of course, Pink also carries his cessationist presupposition into the study where after applauding the faith, fervency, definiteness, earnestness and persistence of Elijah's prayer to raise the widow's son from the dead and commending the readers to follow his example, he writes what seems to me sounds like a Warfieldian cessationism that "the age of miracles has ceased" (p.91) which I disagree. So yes, there are some weaknesses, but I agree more than disagree with Pink in this excellent study.

He has three groups of audience in mind; Christians, ministers of the gospel and non-Christians. Pink not only has the gift of teaching, but also hitting his audience's conscience with clear piercing, though sometimes strong words (e.g., "conscienseless rascal," p.260). There are plenty of lessons of practical theology such as the discipline in the exercises of godliness, faith, humility, humiliation, suffering, grace, submission, courage, the dreadful end of the unrepentant wicked, in addition to the sovereignty of God; the unsearchableness of his judgment and the incomprehensibility of his ways as Rom 11:33 says; something I have come to love so dearly. Drawing from Elijah's sermon on Mount Carmel during the showdown with Ahab and a host of Baal's priests, Pink offers among other things such as prayer in private being the source of power in public (p. 24), a helpful concise counsel of right preaching, that "ministers of Christ should address themselves unto the consciences, the understanding and the affections of their hearers, for only thus can the truth be adequately presented, the principal faculties of man's souls be reached, and a definite decision for the Lord be expected from them. A balance must be preserved between the Law and the Gospel. Conscience must be searched, the mind convinced, the affections warmed, if the will is to be moved unto action. Thus it was with Elijah on Carmel" (p. 142-143). Aware that some of his readers might be unbelievers, Pink also sprinkles the study with the gospel implicitly and explicitly in many places (e.g., p.131, "The fire of God's wrath must fall either on the guilty people or on a sacrificial substitute," p. 84, 136, 242, 269).

I am more than willing to overlook my disagreement with Pink since I was so encouraged, stung, humbled and happy coming out of this blessed study. If there were only one pattern of godliness to follow in the life of Elijah (there are certainly more as Pink summarizes them in ch.34), to me personally it is this, that Elijah was a man of marked elevation of spirit; a man of heavenly-mindedness, where "the affections being set upon the things above." Faith has God for its object. "The more our hearts are occupied with Him whose throne is in heaven, the more our spirits elevated above the earth. The more our minds are engaged with the perfection of Him who is altogether lovely, the less will the things of time and sense have power to attract us. The more we dwell in the secret place of the Most High, the less will the baubles of men charm us" (p.299).

HASH(0x951ea36c) out of 5 stars Elijah by A.W. Pink 29 Dec. 2010
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was delighted to find this book. The life of Elijah offers many lessons for leadership character building. Pink provides insightful study of this ancient prophet who suddenly appears in the narrative of Scripture and leaves the stage just as quickly in a dramatic whirlwind. Pink includes demographic information about Elijah's home region to shed more light onto who this fascinating character was. This book was a key resource in my dissertation research and I was fortunate to find it through such a responsive vendor who provided everything as promised. Thanks.

AW Pink died in 1952 but he wrote a lot... He goes through the story of Elijah line by line from the bible and offers amazing insight. I have learned and grown from all his books. He is a true Calvinist - and follows the acronym of TULIP - Total depravity of man... Unconditional election... Limited atonement... Irresistible grace... Perseverance of the saints..so it you don't agree with that orthodoxy, you won't like any of his books. The company selling the book is called "Bottom of the Hill Publishing" and I have found several typos, but it is easy to figure out the correct word or spelling...
