About the Author
Born in Nottingham, England in 1886, Arthur Walkington Pink was converted to Christ while a spiritualist medium. He briefly attended the Moody Bible Institute in Chicago, Illinois, in 1810, before taking up his first pastorate at Silverton, Colorado. Little-known to the outside world, he pastored other churches in the United States and Australia before finally returning to his homeland in 1934. Settling in Stornoway on the Isle of Lewis, Scotland, there he died almost unnoticed in 1952. By that date, however, the magazine he had started in 1922 Studies in the Scriptures was feeding several of the men who were leading a return to doctrinal Christianity, including Martyn Lloyd-Jones and Douglas Johnson (founder of Inter-Varsity) and, in book form after his death, his writings became very widely read across the world. The Trust publishes his The Sovereignty of God, Gleanings from Paul, Profiting from the Word, The Life of Elijah, and a number of titles which have been translated into Spanish.

Even as Elijah expressed his self pity at Mt. Horeb, and experienced the tender mercies of the Lord, I found myself not merely reading about Elijah, but felt as though I were actually present at the events described. It seemed I was made privy to the innermost thoughts of Elijah, and the mind of God Himself was revealed to me. Dr. Pink's commentary unlocks the Scripture.
This book not only gives tremendous insight into Elijah's attitudes and behavior as well as to the `ways of the Lord,' but is filled with useful suggestions for every believer and for ministers of the gospel. We are called to greater boldness in speaking out against sin. We are called to greater fervency in prayer, and Pink notes "the motive prompting them [our prayers] and the petition itself must alike be right." (p.158)
Elijah's prophetic ministry, especially as revealed by this volume, is a great antidote to the sentimentality and diluted preaching that is offered up from many pulpits today.
