The Sovereignty of God – by AW Pink

“There is no attribute more comforting to His children than that of God’s Sovereignty.” – CH Spurgeon

Who’s in control of this world—God or the devil? In this best-selling classic, A.W. Pink answers such profound questions in a language the average Christian layperson will find not only understandable but totally engaging. Pink, one of the most influential evangelical authors of the 20th century, writes with fiery passion and brilliant clarity, giving biblical answers to our deepest questions regarding the “sadly neglected and little understood” doctrine of the sovereignty of God.

This book may be overwhelming, but it is certain that its many printings have been used of God to convince people of His sovereignty… 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. (more…)

Description:Whitefield was not only the greatest preacher and orator of the eighteenth century, he was also one of its most saintly characters, if not the saintliest of all. Certainly there was no more humble or lovable man amongst them. What can be more profitable, next to the Bible itself, than to read something of the life of such a man and to read his own words!

George Whitefield – Revival Preacher

Struggling to achieve salvation through his own efforts, the Gloucester-born student, George Whitefield, at the age of twenty, read The Life of God in the Soul of Man, written by a 17th century Puritan divine, Henry Scougal. Near death for seven weeks because of his (more…)

In answer to the question, “Which books have most influenced his life?” John MacArthur lists A.W. Pink’s “Spiritual Growth” in the top 10.

Review:

When someone becomes a disciple of Christ their most important concern in life becomes, “how may I please and honour the Lord who has saved me?” How can someone assess their spiritual progress and what means has God ordained for their spiritual maturation? As in all of his books, A.W.Pink has many keen insights on this Biblical subject. For example, on p.116, he writes perceptively, (more…)
