True comfort for Christians is found in the promises of God. Each of the 17 chapters examines the biblical promises that relate to a particular topic such as God's inheritance, contentment, and sufferings compensated. As Pink states in the introduction, “God has a ‘people,’ the objects of His special favor: a company whom He has taken into such intimate relationship with Himself that He calls them ‘My people.’ ...May it please Him to use His Word as expounded in this book to speak peace to afflicted souls today, and the glory shall be His alone.”

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.
—Iain H. Murrary
A. W. Pink (1886-1952) a native of Nottingham, England, whose life as a pastor and writer was spent in a variety of locations in the British Isles, the United States, and Australia. As a young man he turned away from the Christian faith of his parents and became an adherent of the theosophical cult; but then he experienced an evangelical conversion and crossed the Atlantic in 1910, at the age of 24, to become a student at the Moody Bible Institute in Chicago. After only six weeks, however, he left to take up a pastoral ministry. It was during the years that followed that he found his way to a strictly Calvinistic position in theology. He was soon wielding a quite prolific pen. As one whose life was devoted to the study and exposition of the Scriptures, he became the author of numerous books which the Banner of Truth Trust has been assiduously reprinting in recent times. No doubt his chief monument is the paper Studies in the Scriptures which he produced monthly and regularly for a period of thirty years from the beginning of 1922 until his death in 1952.
