In his book The Sovereignty of God, A.W. Pink explains that God is the first cause of all that exists and that all things are under His rule and control. Nothing happens outside of Gods direction or His permission and that Gods purpose will never be overruled or thwarted. The book shows us that God has absolute and unquestionable authority over all of His creation and in the salvation of man. The discussion in the book covers the doctrine of the Atonement, election, predestination, depravity, and reprobation. Pink shows the reader how the eternal plan of God is being worked out in time and we learn about Gods actions and methods through His providential care of His creation. The author also discusses the relationship between God's sovereignty and the human will, Gods sovereignty and prayer and finally he describes the appropriate attitude Christians should have towards God's sovereignty. This book is thorough and abundantly supported by Scripture references throughout. The Sovereignty of God should be one of the most (if not the most) comforting doctrines in the Bible for Christians.
This book has been a great blessing to me, so biblical I just love it and I am thankful that I am able to know the truth of God's absolute sovereignty thought not fully understand it. I would recommend it to anyone who wants a biblical presentation of the sovereignty of God Almighty! This is the best book I've read besides the Bible.
This book is a GREAT thought provoking read!!! The layout and scripture verses that A.W. Pink uses to backup what he's saying are Truth. Truth that is often so easily neglected or often times "swept under the rug" today. This book NEEDS to be read by ALL who claim to know or want to know God.
I highlighted so much of this book it glows in the dark! This book really helped me to see the true heart of most of the unsaved. It was a hard read and it especially hurt because it revealed the error of my own church in allowing sinners to believe that they are saved because they said a little prayer to Jesus. It was also a great comfort because it showed that God is in control of everything. I came out of the Charismatic Church with its emphasis on Satan and how he wants to hurt, destroy, possess and make you sick...so this book really puts Satan in his place! I pray that all Christians would read this book and be comforted and informed to the glory of God.
