In this text, Reformed theologian Arthur Walkington Pink treats God’s supreme reign—discussing how God not only created everything in the material realm, but also his immediate concern in directly earthly affairs. Proceeding from the question, “Who is regulating affairs on this earth today—God, or the devil? What saith the Scriptures?” Pink looks to the Bible to offer a full portrait of the supreme rule and authority of God. Presented here is the full version of Pink’s classic text. While some later editions remove three chapters as well as the appendixes, and alter the language, this edition preserves Pink’s original thought in its entirety.

As the study unfolds, Pink develops his central claim that “because God is God he does as he pleases, only as he pleases, always as he pleases; that his great concern is the accomplishment of his own pleasure and the promotion of his own glory.” He examines God’s sovereignty as it functions in creation, administration, salvation, reprobation, operation, and as it relates to the human will. The text also looks at the relationship between God’s sovereignty and prayer, offering a helpful discussion of this topic as well as showing “the only becoming attitude for the creature to take in view of the majesty of the creator.”

Pink’s text vividly presents the essential principle that “the sovereignty of God is a truth revealed in Scripture for the comfort of our hearts, the strengthening of our souls, and the blessing of our lives.” His classic study is an important exploration of an often overlooked and sometimes unpopular topic, reminding readers that “a due apprehension of God’s sovereignty promotes the spirit of worship, provides an incentive to practical godliness, and inspires zeal in service. It is deeply humbling to the human heart, but in proportion to the degree that it brings man into the dust before his maker, to that extent is God glorified.”

Arthur Walkington Pink

A. W. Pink (1886–1952) pastored churches in the United States and Australia for most of his working life. At the age of 24, Pink experienced an evangelical conversion and crossed the Atlantic from Great Britain to study at Moody Bible Institute in Chicago. But after only six weeks, he left to take up a pastoral ministry during which he found his way to a strictly Calvinistic position in theology.

In 1922, Pink produced a monthly magazine entitled Studies in the Scriptures which circulated among English-speaking Christians worldwide. Pink devoted his life to the study and exposition of the Scriptures and became the author, also under the name Arthur Walkington Pink, of numerous books which the Banner of Truth Trust began publishing after Pink’s death.

Articles, books, tracts, and pamphlets, including the notable Exposition of Hebrews and The Nature of God, can be found in the A. W. Pink Collection (40 vols.). Also available from Logos are The Godhood of God, Why Four Gospels?, The Divine Inspiration of the Bible, and The Law and the Saint.

    Rating for Pink's book only, no reflection on my thoughts on for whatever reason it not being included in Pink's original collection by FL. Hopefully it will be released in a few weeks as it is currently scheduled by FL to release.

    So why is this in Community Pricing when it is already in Logos? I don't get it...

    I've been looking for this since I first started using Logos. An excellent work that should be in everyone's library.
