A.W. Pink - The Sovereignty of God
The Sovereignty of God is Pink's most well-known and well-read work. Here, Pink teaches nothing new -- though it may have seemed outrageous to some at the time it was first published. As Pink illustrates, flowing from the fact of God's sovereignty are major implications for both the believer and the unbeliever. For the unbeliever, the perfect righteousness of God, his unchanging character and the permanency of His decrees mean that God remains just in sentencing them, so long as they remain at enmity with Him. For the believer, it is given to know how God can remain just and yet be justifier of them that have accepted His free gift of grace in Christ Jesus. With a better understanding of God's sovereignty, the Christian attains a high appreciation for the fear of the Lord, the need for the atonement, the responsibilities of the believer, and the joy of salvation. For many raised in modern churches, this book will hopefully serve to correct many of the popular misinterpretations of Scripture and the misapplications of Scripture to the Christian life. Highly recommended!
