Jul 15, Rachel rated it it was amazing Shelves: favorites , orthodoxy , audiobooks. It is the centre of gravity in the system of Christian truth- the sun around which all the lesser orbs are grouped. It is the chord upon which all other doctrines are strung like so many pearls, holding them in place and giving them unity. It is the plumbline by which every creed needs to be measured and the balance in which every human dogma must be weighed. It produces gratitude in prosperity and patience in "The doctrine of God's Sovereignty lies at the very foundation of Christian theology.
It produces gratitude in prosperity and patience in adversity. It is, and does all, and much more than we have said, because it ascribes to God- Father, Son, and Holy Spirit- the glory which is His due, and places the creature in His proper place before Him- in the dust This doctrine of the sovereignty of God is glorious and edifying, and a due apprehension of it will but serve to make us exclaim with Moses, "who is like unto Thee, O Lord, among the gods?
Pink [p. View all 4 comments. Nov 20, Kevin Sorensen rated it it was amazing. If you want to know what it means to say, 'God is sovereign', this is the book. There are others, yes, but Pink is as thorough and as biblical in his presentation of this part of systematic theology as can be found. God knows who will and who will not be saved. Nothing we do will change that.
In fact, in the understanding of some 'Hyper-Calvinists', to share the gospel with the reprobate is truly casting the pearl before swine and wrong.
This is NOT Pink's position. Nor is it the position of any true Calvinist. However, God alone knows who His elect are. He has not given to any man to know this. In fact, Spurgeon once said that if God had intended this, He would have put a yellow stripe on each of the elect, thus making evangelism so much easier.
Instead, we are to share the gospel with all, allowing God to do His work of saving. This is Pink's position. All this stated on the subject of election and predestination, A. Pink's book is so much more than just about who 'gets saved' and 'who doesn't' just one final question to those who disagree: why should God save anyone? The early chapters on creation and the administration of God's will are most helpful, for if God is not sovereign over all His hands have created, then who is?
And if not, then we, as creatures, are most to be pitied for we have no hope. A highly commendable book. Read it slowly; let it have it's time in your thought. Jan 17, Jeff Short rated it it was amazing Shelves: doctrine. This book caused quite a controversy when it was first published and I suppose it still does. This book is a treasure to me as it opened a new view of God and His Word. It deals with one of the most vital aspects of the Godhood of God--sovereignty.
Is God sovereign, is really asking, is He God? What does it mean for God to be God? Who is really in control? Who has supreme authority and power? I highly recommend it. Read along with your Bible and watch how the sovereign supremacy is seen througho This book caused quite a controversy when it was first published and I suppose it still does.
Read along with your Bible and watch how the sovereign supremacy is seen throughout the entire Scriptures. Oct 08, David Steele rated it it was amazing Shelves: sovereignty-of-god. A classic that every person should read! Jan 26, Robert Fonseca rated it liked it.
A lot of doctrine to swallow, some easier than others. Let me start with the one that went down easy.
Pink's chapter on prayer was by far the most enlightening for me. In this chapter the familiar became life changing. His explanation that we pray because we rely on God, not because we want God to change things, was an eye opener. It was one of things that you know intellectually, but it hasn't taken root in your heart and become real. Well know it has. I approach prayer in a whole different man A lot of doctrine to swallow, some easier than others.
I approach prayer in a whole different manner. It makes answers the question, " if God knows everything then why do we need to pray? We need the wisdom to discern His plan in our life. In regards to some of the tougher stuff to swallow, I am still working through it- even after reading his book. The doctrines of predestination and limited atonement are going to take awhile to digest, even with Pink's explanations and scripture references. Part of the problem for me is he had to do to much qualifiying of words, phrases and beliefs before proving his point or just letting the biblical text speak for itself.
So some of his points went to a far off the track for me and I got lost in definitions and explanations of his explanations. I will continue to seek reconciliation so that it is not just an intellectual knowledge, but one I can believe with my whole heart. Nov 21, Andrew Howard rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Everyone! Shelves: theology , worldview , read-again , favorites. An absolute must read!
Pink articulates then relates the Biblical truths of God's absolute Sovereignty so very well and clear! With all assertions that Pink makes, he backs them up with many proofs from the pages of scripture and, only when absolutely necessary, he quotes an uninspired author for their comment on a particular point or a verse, but he always goes to the Bible first before looking to outside resources.
Jul 22, John rated it really liked it Shelves: Great book that definitively tackles the question of the sovereignty of God and the responsibility of man.
