Item description for The Holy Spirit by Arthur W. Pink...
Wherever Christianity has been a living power, the doctrine of the Holy Spirit has uniformly been regarded, equally with the Atonement and Justification by faith, as the article of a standing or falling church. The distinctive feature of Christianity as it addresses itself to man's experience, is the work of the Spirit, which not only elevates it far above all philosophical speculation, but also above every other form of religion. That the Holy Spirit is to be publicly owned and equally honored with the Father and the Son is very evident from the terms of the great commission, "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit."

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.

A. W. Pink's The Holy Spirit Nov 3, 2006
Great exposition. There is so much insight about the work, attributes and role of the Holy Spirit that this book is not a quick read. It requires study to get the most out of it. Also, it is a book you can read and then re-read again and again.
The Holy Spirit 'of God' Apr 26, 2005
Pink's work on the Holy Spirit is one of his lesser known works on major Christian doctrines. It was first in print as a series of articles in the monthly magazine 'Studies in the Scriptures'from 1935-1937. The 'Studies..' were began in 1922,a joint venture of A.W.Pink and I.C.Herendeen. The 'Holy Spirit'was first published in book form in 1970 some 18 years after Pink's death. At times it has been out of print for years at a time. The ministry of Chapel Library in Pensacola Florida uses it as a study guide for those interested in their study by mail courses. Why this book is somewhat undervalued of Pink's major doctrinal studies remains a mystery to me. The chapter titles which list the work of the Spirit are so helpful in identifying the various ministries of the Holy Spirit's work in the lives of God's people. Afew that I would like to mention are:The Holy Spirit regenerating,The Spirit convicting,the Spirit working faith,the Spirit uniting to Christ,the Spirit assuring and the Spirit leading. Simply listing the 22 chapter titles on various aspects of the work of the Holy Spirit of God is a lesson itself. The person and work of the Holy Spirit is where there is as much divergence in Christendom, as there is with any other major Christian teaching. As is characteristic of almost anything that came from Pink's pen there is a plethora of insights and riches that have been mined from the Word of God. An outstanding example is on p.31 "Hence,from the first entrance of sin,there were two great heads to the promises which God gave His people:the sending of His Son to obey and die,the sending of His Spirit to make effectual the fruits of the former."A.W.Pinks work on the Holy Spirit is without a doubt one of the great works ever penned on the third person of the Triune God.
