Pink is acknowledged as one of the deeper thinkers of his era on subjects of doctrine and Christian living. He felt only able to write this book after studying the subject for over 25 years; previous to this he felt he was too immature and unscriptural.
Questions answered in this book include:
* Is sanctification something believers have, or something they experience?
* How is it obtained - is it done for us, by us, or both? How may you be assured that you have been sanctified? Is there any difference between sanctification by the Father, Son, Spirit, faith and the Word?
* Is there any difference between sanctification and holiness?
* Does sanctification relate to the soul, or the body, or both?
* What is the connection between regeneration and sanctification?
* What is the relationship between justification and sanctification?
* Does sanctification precede or follow salvation, or is it an integral part of it?
* Why are the above important and why do so many people disagree on the subject?
THE DOCTRINE OF SANCTIFICATION is a dividing line between Roman Catholic and Celtic notions of holiness on the one hand, and the reformed evangelical view on the other. Clear and incisive, Pink is not sidetracked by the post-modern interpretations of holiness invading the Christian church. From Christian Focus.
Arthur W. Pink (1886-1952) was born in Nottingham, England. He became a Christian in his early twenties, and, desiring to grow in his knowledge of the Bible, emigrated to the United States to study at Moody Bible Institute, in Chicago, Illinois. From 1925 to 1928, Pink served in Australia, before returning to England, and then to the United States the following year. He pastored churches in Colorado, California, Kentucky, and South Carolina. In 1922, Pink started a monthly magazine entitled Studies in Scriptures, which circulated among English-speaking Christians worldwide. In 1934, Pink returned to England, and within a few years, 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. 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.
