Why did Christ tell his disciples, “it is to your advantage that I go away” (John 16:7)? The answer to this question is found in the person and work of the Holy Spirit, the third person of the Trinity. In this comprehensive study Pink develops that answer from the rest of Scripture to the great benefit of every believer.

Pink’s writings should be part of every Christian’s study library. A practical theologian with a pastor’s heart, Pink has shaped the thinking of a generation of believers.


In this comprehensive study, Pink considers every verse in the Bible that touches on the subject of the Holy Spirit and finds that it is essential to both the doctrine and practice of believers. As he states in the introduction, “Not at all too strong was the language of Samuel Chadwick when he said, ‘The gift of the Spirit is the crowning (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.


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…)

On Abortion

by John Piper | January 20, 2012



We are children of the light. Abortion is a work of darkness. The apostle Paul said, “Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them” (Ephesians 5:11).

Our aim, by the power of the Holy Spirit, in the name of Jesus Christ, through the authority of his word, is to glorify God by making much of his image in the unborn, and his mercy in forgiving sinners.

We would like to give you a free eBook based on three sermons I preached on abortion. We hope it helps you speak out. Please feel free to download it, print it, copy it, and share it with as many people as you like.

Here’s a sample sentence:

God is calling passive, inactive Christians today to engage our minds and hearts and hands in exposing the barren works of darkness. To be the conscience of our culture. To be the light of the world. To live in the great reality of being loved by God and adopted by God and forgiven by Christ (yes—for all the abortions that dozens of you have had), and be made children of the light. I call you to walk as children of light.

Thanks for caring,

John Piper

Reviews and ratings of Biblical, theological and practical Christian works

Commentaries combines reviews and ratings from journals, books, and users to create an aggregate ranking for Biblical commentaries.

Some professors give student their own lists and some have even published their list (notably D. A. Carson, Tremper Longman, III, John Glynn, and Jim Rosscup), but these are not available in one place. has collected these scholarly reviews and averaged them along with reviews from other ministries like John Piper’s Desiring God Ministries, R. C. Sproul’s Ligonier Ministries, and the Denver Seminary Journal as well as users of the site. The individual reviews are still extremely valuable, but together they can help students at all levels to make good, informed decisions about which commentaries they should purchase.

GET THIS BOOK BY JOSEPH ALLEINE FROM US FOR FREE! Delivered by e-mail in pdf format.


The fire of God was in the bones of young Joseph Alleine. His preaching and his prayers dripped with the anointing of the Holy Spirit. Alleine’s words in this book mirror his message to the unconverted.

Sinners who have read, and who now will read, this classic of classics have squirmed, excused, pleaded falsely, yet have been unable to escape the message straight from Heaven: “Study your own hearts. Do not rest till God has made thorough work with you. For you must be other men, or else you are lost men” ( p. 8)

Tens of thousands have accredited this book with having opened their eyes to their unconverted state. Among these, perhaps even half of these, were church members sailing under Christ’s colours. These fervent words have burned their way into the hearts of both the small and the great. George Whitefield told how it affected him. C. H. Spurgeon “when brought under conviction” turned to this book.

This book speaks the message of God so plainly that it brings conviction such as attended the apostle Peter’s preaching when he cried out, “Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.”
