Who is actually in control of this world? Man? The devil? God?
In this unabridged, best-selling classic, A. W. Pink tackles such profound questions in straight-forward language that the average Christian will find not only understandable but totally engaging. Pink explains that God's sovereignty is characterized in creation and in salvation, and then he describes its relationship to human will. Finally, Pink addresses the proper attitude believers should take toward God's sovereignty. Ultimately, Pink strongly believed that true faith rests "not in the wisdom of men but in the power of God."
Pink was a student of theologians like St. Augustine, St. Aquinas, Calvin, and Jonathan Edwards, and his writing reflects it. Today, he is considered one of the most influential evangelical authors in the twentieth century.
"From every pulpit in the land it needs to be thundered forth that God still lives, that God still observes, that God still reigns. Faith is now in the crucible, it is being tested by fire, and there is no fixed and sufficient resting place for the heart and mind but in the throne of God. What is needed now, as never before, is a full, positive, constructive setting forth of the Godhood of God."
-A. W. Pink, The Sovereignty of God
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.
