Arthur W. Pink Pink (d. 1953) is noted for his independent thinking. He was so well read, and had such a photographic memory, that he could give you the page and column in a host of reference works and commentaries. This book shocked the Christian world in 1919 when he first published it. He fiercely defends the sovereignty of God, and all the cognate doctrines such as the Doctrines of Grace. It is THE book to give to those just after conversion, and a prime book to give to anyone who defends the free will of man. Pink was a Baptist preacher who held pulpits in England, America, and Australia. His early training was in scientology. His conversion was instant, and complete dedication to the cause of God and truth quickly became evident. This early book by Pink lays Scripture end to end to prove God's control over all persons and events. It is uncompromising, and as such it raises the hackles on the necks of many new students of this doctrine. Persons who knew Pink seldom objected to anything he taught, because he could literally quote hundreds of verses of Scripture verbatim on the subject under discussion. This book may be overwhelming, but it is certain that its many printings have been used of God to convince people of His sovereignty. His doctrinal belief is that that God both elects and reprobates, as Romans 9:21-23 clearly teaches. It is an important stone to guide the steps of those who are not yet convinced of God's absolute sovereignty over all persons and events.

Sovereignty: -Supremacy of authority or rule as exercised by a sovereign or sovereign state. -Royal rank, authority, or power. -Complete independence and self-government. -A territory existing as an independent state. The subject is God, and Pink knows his subject and speaks his mind. He wants you to read your Bible, and not depend on interpretations from the pulpit to know of God's absolute purpose. He reserves special disdain for those who would portray God as a lovable, yet ineffectual uncle, unable to coax his charges into heaven, and emphasizes instead God's unequivocally fearsome and to us, terrible, nature. According to Pink, God is not there to comfort or console. Tthe reader can take comfort in a better understanding of God's nature.
