Book Description

The foundation of our knowledge of God rests upon knowing what he is like. Without understanding God's attributes, we have a skewed perception of him--often one cast in our own image. We need more than just a theoretical knowledge of God in order to worship him as he desires. This classic work of Arthur W. Pink invites readers to discover the truth about seventeen attributes of God, including his sovereignty, immutability, patience, love, faithfulness, and much more. Pink shows readers a God who is alive, all-powerful, and active in his creation. The perfect introductory text, The Attributes of God also has enough depth and meat to satisfy the more experienced reader.

Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

A Transforming Knowledge of the Living God

The timeless appeal of this classic book, written by a preacher with a worldwide ministry during the first half of the twentieth century, demonstrates the deep hunger for a saving knowledge of God present in each generation. Arthur Pink sought to give readers not just a theoretical knowledge of God but pointed them toward a personal relationship of yielding to him and living according to his biblical precepts.

Pink's book explores attributes such as God's decrees, foreknowledge, sovereignty, holiness, grace, and mercy, among many others, all packaged in a style especially useful for pastors, teachers, and Bible students. Our God who is above all names cannot be found through human searching alone, Pink teaches, but can be known only as he is revealed by the Holy Spirit through his living Word.

Arthur W. Pink (1886-1952) served as a pastor for churches in Colorado, California, Kentucky, and South Carolina. His ministry brought him throughout the United States, Australia, and Great Britain.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Introductory Treatment December 13, 2002
During the first part of the 20th century, Arthur Pink put pen to paper and produced a number of outstanding books that continue to be held in high esteem among many. Pink is famous for 3 main things. First, he held to a very high Calvinist theology. Second, because of the first, he held some highly controversial positions that many Arminians find repugnant. Third, Pink's ability to soak and bathe his views in Scripture are quite extraordinary. It is not at all uncommon to read entire chapters of Pink and encountering a Scripture verse in every other sentence. Such is the case with this particular book.
This book is very short, less than 100 pages. As a result, those looking for a more exhaustive treatment of this topic a la Charnock (whom Pink eloquently quotes a number of times in this book) or the more recent work by Feinberg might be disappointed. However, I'm giving the book 5 stars because even though one could write for a lifetime about the attributes of God and not cover the topic completely, Pink's short work is nonetheless very meaty and is a solid contribution that a number of more recent authors have rightly drawn from in their works.
As is the usual Pink style, he is unapologetic throughout this book in elevating God's ways far above the ways of man, as he believes Scripture does. He is unapologetic about lamenting the wickedness of man generally, and in many cases, directing his most impassioned criticism towards the modern Church for what he sees as the church's coddling of sin, demotion of God to a pleasant afterthought of the human construct, and failing to preach on the unpopular attributes of God such as His wrath. This is not a book aimed at those who want to hear unthreatening and soft peddling thoughts in an effort to feel better about themselves.

5.0 out of 5 stars Before you buy this book... March 19, 2004
This book is a great help for growing into the knowledge and understanding of our Creator's character, which is crucial for Christians to acquire; for growing spiritually (theocentrically). Easy read, also great for referencing. BUT!! Before you buy this work, instead I would recommend getting A.W. Pink's, The Nature of God (ISBN: 0802465714), which can be purchased here at as well. It has this entire book, plus much more.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Attributes of God January 26, 2000
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
There is nothing more important than having an accurate knowledge of God. The glory of God has been defined as the sum total of His attributes. As a person comes to know God in increasing measures as He truly exists,they see more of His glory. One of the valuable features in most of the books that Pink has written is that you get numerous quotes from some of the finest works on those subjects that have been written. Mr.Pink quotes from "the" classic,Charnock's "Existence and Attributes of God" no less than ten times. In the preface Pink gives the reader some important directives as to why a book on the attributes of God should be read and how we may profit thereby. He writes,"The foundation of all true knowledge of God must be a clear mental apprehension of His perfections as revealed in Holy Scripture. An unknown God can neither be trusted,served,nor worshipped. ...Something more than a theoretical knowledge of God is needed by us. God is only truly known in the soul as we yield ourselves to Him,submit to His authority,and regulate all the details of our lives by His holy precepts and commandments." Our one great aim in life should be to know God and to worship Him in sprit and in truth. This book exalts the God who is and accurately sets forth His person as He has revealed Himself in His Holy Word. Its eternal value is inestimable in helping someone to come to know better the God of the Bible.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good book, poor editing, copied from the Web! November 2, 2010
Arthur Pink is certainly worth reading. I purchased several copies to use as gifts. However, once I started reading it, I noticed lots of what seemed to be typos. They are actually scanning errors, caused when the original was scanned into a computer file for use on a Web site. This book is nothing but a printout of a web site. You can find it at several URLs. In fact, there is even a parenthetical statement in one of the chapters where Pink originally referred back to an earlier chapter, but this version refers back to the earlier "Web site"!

If this had been re-edited for publication, it would be worth it. You can find Web editions for free without the scanning errors, so you would do just as well to print those out yourself...

5.0 out of 5 stars The Book that changed my life April 29, 2005
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I read this book during my Junior year of college, and it changed my entire worldview. It was like a grenade going off in my mind as the boxes I had put God in were blown apart. I have read the book several times, spent months using it in my devotional times, led a study through the book in Sunday School and in a small group study, and have found it to be a great resource in each situation.

Pink is unashamed of God's glory, and he conveys that in every chapter. When you take up this book you are going to see the pages of scripture opened and the majesty of God exposed.

5.0 out of 5 stars To Know God and make Him known. February 3, 2000
I just wanted to say this book is an excellent resource and study for any believer. As the Psalmist said in Ps.46:10, "Be still and know that I am God..." This book truly is help in that area. Read it along with an open Bible, Pink in other books challenges his readers not to take his word for it, check him out with the Word of God. I also encourage the reader of this book and every believer, for that matter, to not forget the purpose of knowing God. The latter part of Ps.46:10 says "...I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in all the earth" Bring glory to Him who alone is Worthy as you read this book and share with others the Good News.
