Item description for Sovereignty of God by Arthur W. Pink...
Arthur W. Pink Pink (d. 1953) is noted for his independent thinking. He was so well read, and had such a photographic memory, that he could give you the page and column in a host of reference works and commentaries. This book shocked the Christian world in 1919 when he first published it. He fiercely defends the sovereignty of God, and all the cognate doctrines such as the Doctrines of Grace. It is THE book to give to those just after conversion, and a prime book to give to anyone who defends the free will of man. Pink was a Baptist preacher who held pulpits in England, America, and Australia. His early training was in scientology. His conversion was instant, and complete dedication to the cause of God and truth quickly became evident. This early book by Pink lays Scripture end to end to prove God's control over all persons and events. It is uncompromising, and as such it raises the hackles on the necks of many new students of this doctrine. Persons who knew Pink seldom objected to anything he taught, because he could literally quote hundreds of verses of Scripture verbatim on the subject under discussion. This book may be overwhelming, but it is certain that its many printings have been used of God to convince people of His sovereignty. His doctrinal belief is that that God both elects and reprobates, as Romans 9:21-23 clearly teaches. It is an important stone to guide the steps of those who are not yet convinced of God's absolute sovereignty over all persons and events.

More About 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.

Pink is the man Nov 19, 2008
It has been a while since I read this book, but I still think it is one of the most profound books written in this century. Not because it is a calvinist book. Because of the way with which Pink writes. There is such passion behind the words that he writes within this book. I remember thinking as I was reading this book "man we need another Pink today." He ripped apart the way that evangelism was being done in that day. Every little false illustration and such. This book was written I believe in the thirties and what is amazing is he talks about problems streching back to the turn of the century that we are still having today. Some the illustrations that he tears apart such as the "doctor with medicine" illustration were taught to me in seminary. I would reccomend this book to anyone who is struggling with proper evangelism and also anyone who wants to have a more clear perspective of the God that we Love so much.
This is the best theological book I've ever read Aug 21, 2008
If you want to read one book on theology this is THE book. This is clearly written so that all may understand it and is presented in a very straight-forward, logical manner. This is the book that helped push me over the edge on particular atonement. Mr. Pink uses a ton of scripture verses to defend all his positions. As a Christian, it is the word of God that is sharper than a two-edged sword and the Holy Spirit will work in you when reading this book since it is full of scripture. If your church library doesn't have this book, I highly recommend them getting it so that all within the church have a chance to read this outstanding book.
Good intro to Calvinism Jun 9, 2008
This has been my introduction to the Reformed doctrines of Grace, or Calvinism. I have always been a dispensational Baptist, not quite Arminian all the way, but also not Calvinistic all the way. I have always been disturbed by some of the verses in the bible that clearly talk about predestination and never heard a clear explanation of those verses; now I have. While I would have always said I believed God is Sovereign, now I really have a fuller understanding of that. While I have always believed humans are sinful, I now have a much more clear sense of how God sees us. And I have always been uncomfortable with Christians who proclaim Christ yet do not seem to even want to contend for the faith. This book validates my concerns. For these things alone, the book is worth reading. Pink is very scholarly and logical and makes many excellent points on these issues and more.
However, I am still struggling with the doctrines of people being predestined for hell and that Christ only died for a select few. There are many verses in the bible that seem to me to refute these two beliefs, Pink's excellent arguments withstanding. Pink does a great job of presenting the Calvinistic viewpoint, but I keep thinking of the verses to the contrary that I have always known.
Am I predestined to become a 5 point Calvinist? Right now I would say I am not irresistably drawn, but I will say I did get a lot out of this book and have decided to let God show me if I am to change my mind. In the meantime, I would like to read more of Pink's books because of his evident love for God and excellent expository skills-but I will read with caution.
This is a keeper Mar 3, 2008
This is the best book I have ever read on the sovereignty of God. Grabs your interest from the first page, and leaves you with total peace that God really is in control.
Magnificent!!! Reminds us of who's in control!!! Feb 1, 2008
Read everything you can by Arthur W. Pink!! Along with A.W. Tozer and G. Campbell Morgan, they're the best theologians you can find. There's not a bit of fluff (no "name it and claim it" garbage); just the SOLID Word of God, understood and explained perfectly. This book belongs next to your Bible, especially if you're doing a study on the Book of Romans.
