Arthur W. Pink is a familiar name to many Bible students today both among pastors and laymen. But many may not know about the interesting life this man lived. Murray gives a good portrait here.
He was converted from Theosophy while in his twenties, and immediately felt called to preach. Though he never even completed Bible College, he became a popular conference speaker in his early ministry. After several pastorates in the United States, he moved to Australia where he did conference work and pastored a "Strict" Baptist church. But Pink's allegiance to the "whole counsel of God" cost him the acceptance of men. He taught too much for both the more common Arminians of his day and the "high" Calvinists, who had drifted into hypercalvinism.
After years of struggle to find his place, he reconciled himself to a ministry of writing instead of preaching. From Stornoway, Scotland he faithfully penned his "Studies in the Scriptures" magazine, which was sent to about 1000 (and sometimes less) people across the world.
The books that have now become so popular (The Life of Elijah, Exposition of Hebrews, Spiritual Growth, Eternal Security, etc.) originated in this magazine.
Murray gives the details of these different experiences of Pink and his wife, and also provides some interesting insights into the cause of Pink's eventual isolation. He writes charitably, yet with objectivity.
The ten chapter book concludes with a lengthy section of extracts from Pink's writings on numerous subjects of importance and a helpful bibliography of Pink's writings.
on the "Sovereignty of God." Since that time I have tried
to obtain every book, article, booklet he has ever written.
When Mr.Pink brought forth a truth from God's Word he covered it
thoroughly. When he finished there was nothing left to be said.
I have read his life story and have a paper-back copy in my library;
but wanted a hardback edition. Thanks for your service.
