Who is man before God? Do we truly understand the results of sin and our fallen nature, or the scope of God's forgiveness? Pink provides you with a deeper and clearer understanding of the Almighty's amazing love toward us. Arthur Walkington Pink was an English Christian evangelist and Biblical scholar known for his staunchly Calvinist and Puritan-like teachings. Though born to Christian parents, prior to conversion he migrated into a Theosophical society (an occult gnostic group 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.
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.
