Publishers Description What is the purpose of our lives? God's design is that he might be glorified and that those he has chosen might be saved to have abundant life. The life of faith is lived in the light of this truth: so that Christians must remember lack of growth brings God no honour, prayerlessness gives no glory. Yet, positively God works in the believer through Scripture to prepare them for glory and to give them happiness here and now. A. W. Pink looks at what God has done for us, why he has done this and how we should respond. He gives us marks of grace to look for in ourselves and reassurance as to the help God provides.

More About A. W. Pink
A. W. Pink (1886-1952) was born in Nottingham, England, and became a Christian in his early twenties. Desiring to grow in knowledge of the Bible, Pink immigrated to the United States to study at Moody Bible Institute, in Chicago, Illinois. From 1925 to 1928, he served in Australia, before returning to England, and then to the United States the following year. He eventually pastored churches Colorado, California, Kentucky, and South Carolina. In 1934, Pink returned to England, and turned his Christian service to writing books and pamphlets. After his death, his works were republished by the Banner of Truth Trust and reached a much wider audience as a result. His writing sparked a revival of expository preaching and focused readers' hearts on biblical living.

Help for Christian Living Apr 30, 2000
The Life of Faith consists of a series of articles mostly taken from various published books by A.W.Pink. The last two chapters were taken from 'The Studies in the Scriptures from which most of the authors books were compiled and published after his death in 1952. In the publihers introduction they assert that the best of Pink's writings are those in which he deals with practical aspects of the Christian life. This book falls in that category. There is much here to help the Christian in his daily walk with God. Mr.Pinks definition of 'progressive santication' on p.62 is outstanding,"If by progressive sanctification be meant a clearer understanding and fuller apprehension of what God has made Christ to be unto the believer and of his perfect standing and state in him;if by it be meant the believer living more and more in the enjoyment and power of that,with the corresponding influenceand effect it will have upon his character and conduct;if by it be meant a growth of faith and an increase of its fruits,manifested in a holy walk;then we have no objection to the term." The last chapter of the book 'Grace Preparing for Glory' has not been published previously in any of Pink's books. It deals with how the believer ought to be living in the light of Christ's second coming. On p.152 Mr. Pink instructs the reader as to what is produced in the life of one who has been a recipient of the grace of God; "Divine grace teaches its favoured recipients subjectively as well as objectively, effectually as well as theoretically. Grace in the heart prevents us from abusing grace in the head: it delivers us from making grace the lackey of sin. Where the grace of God brings salvation to the soul, it works effectually. And what is it that grace teaches? Practical holiness. Grace does not eradicate ungodliness and worldly lusts,but it causes us to deny them." I believe this book if read and taken to heart will under God's blessing promote Biblical holiness in the heart and life of the Christian reader.
