"A superficial examination of the scriptures will reveal that holiness is the opposite of sin, yet the realisation of this at once conducts us into the realm of mystery, for how can persons be sinful and holy at one and the same time? It is this difficulty that so deeply exercises the true saints ..." (A W Pink ~ A. W. Pink (1886-1952), Pastor, Conference speaker & writer.)
About the Author
A. W. Pink (1886-1952) was born in England and converted in his 20's. He was called to a pastorate in Colorado until 1921, after which he decided to concentrate on writing and speaking at conferences. The next year he started a monthly magazine 'Studies in the scriptures' which he edited until his death.

..Because this is over looked in many lives God's people live a defeated life. A very good book.
There is an unction to all of Pink's written ministry but especially when he writes on practical christian theology as can be seen in this comment on p.25"they would be free from the punishments due to sin but they love their lusts so well that they hate holiness and desire not to be saved from the service of sin.The way to oppose this pernicious delusion is not to deny,as some do,that trusting on Christ for salvation is a saving act of faith,but rather to show that none do or can trust on Christ for true salvation except they trust on Him for holiness,neither do they heartily desire true salvation,if they do not desire to be made holy and righteous in their hearts and lives."
The author rightly believed that no man or body of men had a monopoly on truth.Pink profited from the writings of a number of men(from a wide divergence of thought on this doctrine)which adds strength to this doctrinal treatise.
Another thing that is so special about Pink's written ministry is that it is always clear that the Scriptures are the final word. For example,though he highly esteemed the writings of the Puritans and was greatly influenced by them,he would not hesitate to differ with them when he was convinced that the Bible did.In chapters eight and nine Mr.Pink points to a couple of significant differences that he had with the Puritans in the area of sacntification.One being his definition of 'progressive sacntification'.The other being the absence in the writings of the puritans on the objective aspect of sacntification that believers have in Christ.He agreed with the Puritan perspective (for the most part)on the work of the Holy Spirit in the lives of Christians but the very important teaching that believers are objectively sanctified (similar to being justified)because of their union with Christ was overlooked by the Puritans.
The usefulness of this priceless work(or lack thereof,due to its limited availability at times)remains a mystery to me.The ministry of Mount Zion Bible Church(Chapel Library)has been reprinting and distributing Pink's 'Studies In The Scriptures'beginning with 1932(from the early nineties to the present).The articles on 'The Doctrine Of Sanctification' originally appeared in 'The Studies' from 1935 through 1937.They first were published in book form by Baker Books in 1955(three years after Pink's death).In 1975 Reiner Publications had the book in print ahnd it was distributed by Gospel Missions in Choteau Montana for a number of years.Christian Focus Publications has had two printings of the book first in 1998 and most recently in 2006.
The Church of Christ is indebted to these publishers for keeping this immensely important work in print.
