Item description for Ten Commandments by Arthur W. Pink...
Today is a day of lawlessness. The spirit of our times is one of unbounded "freedom," one of casting off all restraints, despising all authority. Since God Himself is no longer feared by the majority, many no longer respect the God-ordained authority of governments, parents, church leaders, and educators. Because of abounding iniquity on every hand, the love of many professing Christians for their God and His Law has grown cold, just as Christ prophesied (Matthew 24: 12) . Yet we see in Holy Scripture that the only true freedom is freedom from sin. Concerning the purpose of Christ's coming into the world, God's angel Gabriel said to Joseph, "And thou shalt call His name JESUS (that is, JEHOVAH is Savior'): for He shall save His people from their sins" (Matthew 1: 21) . The Lord Jesus said, "Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free" (John 8: 32) . Free from what? Free from sin Jesus Christ Himself is the Truth, and to know Him is to be free both from the power of reigning sin and from sin's soul-destroying consequences, not simply in the world to come but in this present life as well. The Lord Jesus Himself was well acquainted with the supreme joy of the Godward life of obedience to God's Law and freedom from sin. During His earthly walk, He was a Lawkeeper par excellence. To think, that the Second Person of the holy Trinity, Jehovah the eternal Word, the Lawgiver of Israel, was "made of a woman, made under the Law" (Galatians 4: 4) for our redemption Think on this: the salvation that has been freely given to you, simply by your having trusted in Christ's blood and righteousness, was procured by Him, your substitute, at the highest possible cost. The salvation that is''all of grace'' to you was earned, ''all of works, '' by your Savior And yet He obeyed every commandment with the purest delight, saying, ''My meat (food) is to do the will of Him that sent Me, and to finish His work'' (John 4: 34). Christ could say in the words of Job (23: 12), yet with far greater truthfulness, ''Neither have I gone back from the commandment of His lips; I have esteemed the words of His mouth more than my necessary food.'' Mr. Pink's exposition of God's Moral Law is not exhaustive, for that is impossible. The Psalmist says, ''I have seen the end of all perfection: but Thy commandment is exceeding broad'' (Psalm 119: 96). Nevertheless, Mr. Pink gets o the root of man's need. He ably demonstrates the way in which God's Spirit uses the Law: (1) in bringing men to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ (by bringing them to the end of themselves); and (2) in producing in them an increasing ''family resemblance, '' a holy likeness to their Father in heaven (which is the fruit of true saving faith). If you will read this book prayerfully, then God will graciously enable you to cry out with the Psalmist, ''O how love I Thy law It is my meditation all the day'' (Psalm 119: 97). Pink (1890-1953) was a Baptist Preacher in England, Australia, and the United States. He is most famous for his book The Sovereignty of God. After its advent, he, assisted by his editor Mr. I. Herendeen, launched his yearly publication, Studies in the Scriptures in 1921. These continued until his death, totaling altogether 33 volumes of 288 pp. each. Most of Pink=s books are taken from these yearly volumes (written monthly in 24 page format).

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

Another Great Book By Pink! Jan 2, 2008
Like most of what A.W. Pink wrote, this book is an excellent addition to anyone's library. In this thorough book, he devotes a chapter for each commandment, the whole time presenting each one in a way that is relevant to us. And, as an added "bonus" there is a chapter entitled "A Word To Parents." Parents need to teach their children the Ten Commandments as found in God's Word. It would help them to be better children, and they will grow up to be respectable citizens. Buy a copy for yourself and another copy to give away! You will not regret it! (I intended on giving this book 5 stars, but somehow it only shows 4...)
A necessary work Apr 6, 2000
I found this book to be clear, true, and too the point. It is a short work and an easy read. I would recommend this especially to those who do not come from a Reformed perspective and yet would like a presentation of the Reformed view of the law. Not meaning that this book is not good for all peoples. It is not the most comprehensive book on the subject of the law I have seen by any means, but it is no weak work, and insightive at that.
The 10 Commandments: Do They Apply for Today? Aug 3, 1998
Many are preaching an antinomian (against law) theology that is destroying the church today. A. W. Pink shows us in light of Scripture that we as Christians are to live by and teach others as well the 10 Commandments. "For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven." (Matthew 5:18-19)
