Item description for Exposition of the Gospel of John, One-Volume Edition by Arthur W. Pink...
Overview Here are three unabridged volumes in one on the Gospel of John by a renowned Bible expositor. Study questions can be found at the end of each chapter.
Publishers Description An unforgettably beautiful picture of our Lord is drawn for God's people in the beloved Gospel of John. The promises in this Fourth Gospel have brought to weary hearts down through the centuries the sudden delight of the traveler who, crossing a desert, suddenly comes upon the cool, tranquil comfort of a green-bordered oasis. Thoroughly scholastic and yet vigorously practical, this exposition of the beloved Gospel (a verse-by-verse running commentary) is not a 'hasty production.' The author has already devoted fifteen years of special study to John's Gospel and taught the book to five different classes in the course of as many pastorates besides lecturing on it frequently from the Bibles conference platform. He has diligently sought to do two things (and accomplished them with praiseworthy distinction): (1) obtain from God the meaning of the text, and (2) apply its lessons most effectively to his hearers and readers.

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.

Reviews - What do customers think about Exposition Of The Gospel Of John (1 Volume)?
Good for beginners Aug 14, 2006
When I started looking for commentaries, I started with Calvin's, but found him too dry. Pink's book is both compelling, easy to follow, and, most importantly, asks the student questions on the Gospel before attempting to answer them in the book. Pink teaches you how to ask the right questions more than spoon-feeding you the right answers.
Excellent resource Nov 11, 2005
While I have a copy of the 3 volume set of this book, I love reading Pink along with my personal study of the Gospel of John. Arthur Pink brings ideas that are constantly challenging. Even though this is not an exegetical commentary, Pink handles the greek language in a way that most readers will be able to understand.
A mammoth devotional work on John's gospel. Aug 2, 2000
This is a rich exposition of John's gospel, interpreting the text in its immediate context and in its canonical context. It also draws applications for today. Having said that, "today" is a relative term: Pink applies it to situations that were true of the evangelical church in the mid 1940's. But there is so much timeless material here, that the commentary is really a must for the pastor's bookshelf. In particular, the comments on John 1 and John 3 and John 9 are flat out brilliant. Yet I must also concur with the previous reviewer who noted that occasionally, Pink spiritualizes the text a bit too often. Particularly with numbers, but also with his interpretation of John chapter two, which he sees as an symbolic reference to Judaism as a "dead husk." In his attempt to draw applications for today, he sometimes reads things into the text that aren't there (notice some of his comments on John 7-8). But for the most part, this is a tremendously rich treatment of the Gospel of John.
Lucid reading; clear and complete commentary. Please read. Nov 23, 1998
GOOD POINTS: 1. Pink strongly emphasizes that the Gospel of John reflects the deity of Christ. 2. Each chapter is 7 - 15 pages and covers a specific event in the Gospel of John. The outline of the book follows the chapters in Scripture consecutively and completely. 3. Study questions are provided by Pink to focus the readers attention to the main points in the Gospel. 4. Pink prayerfully considers each text and has been blessed with an ability to lucidly present rational commentary on texts. BAD POINTS: 1. I humbly suggest that he may spiritualize a bit much, especially with the use of numbers. However, the main points of the Gospel are clearly presented.
