This is a wonderfully clear presentation of this subject, and readers will find this book both informative and encouraging. Whilst some of the references / examples reflect the time of writing of the book, the message is still as powerful and applicable as ever. And you don't need a degree in theology, either ;-)
A powerful and timeless classic on this important subject.
The blessed assurance that a believer can receive from an understanding of God's Sovereignty is well, beyond calculation.
This work elevates God and puts man where he belongs-in the dust. This doctrine, sadly many shy away from, but it is there in the pages of Scripture to those whom God has opened their eyes to see.
The one thing I must disagree with Pink on is on page 175 (Kindle) or 470 in "The Wisdom of Arthur W Pink vol 1" where he says "...that all our works (before conversion), good as well as evil, count for nothing toward salvation." It MUST be a typo error, as surely "all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags." Isaiah 64.6 even before and after conversion?
I understand that Pink was raised in Dispensationalism, subsequently came to reject it and wrote against it, yet had some strange views about prophecy regarding the Lord's Second Advent in his "Reedemer's Return" (Not recommended reading!) This I do not say lightly, and with the utmost regret, because I value highly all his other works, but then, even the Puritans, whom he studied voraciously had a dim light compared to us today), this no doubt came about from his earlier Dispensational leanings.
Having said this, he was a most voluminous writer, and well, no man is perfect,(the Saviour aside!) but certainly his soteriology is biblical.
Basically, the contents sum up the Arminian/Calvinism Controversy, though from a slightly more biblical slant. Pink has chosen to approach the whole issue of Calvinism from God's point-of-view. So Pink looks, in detail, at the great doctrine which permeates Calvinism and indeed the whole Bible: God's Sovereignty, or in everyday language, the truth that God is in control of every single thing and event for ever and ever, Amen. Hence, Pink begins by looking more generally about this truth. He asks the question: is God in control of bad events? He asks: is God in control of Satan? He raises the issue as to whether God really is in control of every single detail in the history of the universe. Then he moves onto salvation. Is God in control of the salvation of people? If so, how much? Down to the finest detail, or more broadly? Has God really chosen some people to be saved from His eternal wrath and anger? Did Christ really die for everybody? How does God draw people to Himself? Can those whom God has chosen overpower God's will to save them? Does God preserve His people faithfully forever unto Heaven? Finally, Pink applies all this to the theme of prayer and that turns out to be perhaps the best chapter.
So Pink answers each question which he raises pretty well indeed and does so from what he believes the Bible is saying.Read more ›
Although the text is around 90 years old it is still easily readable. "The Sovereignty of God" is top of my list (after the KJV) of books to recommend to Christians of all ages. Just one caveat - get the original version if at all possible, NOT the Banner of Truth edition which has been corrupted by the editors. The Baker edition is excellent.
If you want to go deeper with The Lord and are prepared to be challenged by scripture, then this is a "must read".
The archaic language is a bit of a problem, but once you get into it, you don't notice it (a bit like hearing Shakespeare read by an accomplished actor).
