Pink is well-known as a Calvinist pastor and expositor of Scripture. Iain Murray said that “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.” While this influence may have faded a bit in recent years, just about every pastor I know form a generation ago had numerous books by Pink on their shelves.
This little book is a celebration of the majesty of the sovereign God. Concerning salvation, Pink writes: “Salvation is God’s sovereign work. “God does not save a man because he is a sinner, for if so He must save all men, for all are sinners. Nor because he comes to Christ, for `no man can come except the Father draw him;’ nor because he repents, for `God gives repentance unto life;’ nor because he believes,’ for no one can believe `except it were given him from above;’ nor yet because he holds out faithful to the end, for `we are kept by the power of God.’”
Despite the age of the book, I find it quite readable. This free book would make for excellent devotional reading.
