In this book Pink looks at each of the seven words Jesus spoke while hanging in agony. In his introduction to the book Pink says, "The death of Christ...was unique, miraculous, supernatural. In the chapters which follow we shall hearken to the words which fell from his lips while he hung upon the cross - words which make known to us some of the attendant circumstances of the great tragedy; words which reveal the excellencies of the one who suffered there; words in which is wrapped up the gospel of our salvation; and words which inform us of the purpose, the meaning, the sufferings, and the sufficiency of the death divine." He dedicates a chapter to each of the words of forgiveness, salvation, affection, anguish, suffering, victory and contentment. In every case he spends some time discussing the meaning of the word and usually equal time applying these words to the faith of the individual Christian. Far from "mere" theology, this book is intensely practical and immediately applicable.
The Seven Sayings of the Saviour on the Cross deserves the accolades given to it. It bears repeated readings and is ideal for group study (and, indeed, I led a group of over 100 people reading it in tandem). It is worthy of a spot in the collection of every Christian.
I do have a few disagreements as he seems to say Jesus had no power on earth to forgive sins because he was lifted up off the ground (page 13)but he countermanded that opinion on page 30 and 41.On page 16 he says Christ did not personally forgive his enemies.On page 17 he says Christ never forgave where there was no repentance--I disagree strongly on both of these points.On page 27 he says "Salvation by grace--sovereign,irrestable free grace is illustrated in the New Testament by example as well as precept"--Salvation is Irrestable ?--dead wrong.
There were a few nuggets of Bible Gold as he proves you must have head faith before you have heart faith,Jesus never did any miracles for his own comfort or ease and the fact Father God did not spare His Son when sin was found on Him,so what hope do the unsaved have.
All in all a very deep and insightfull paperback,just beware of his Calvinistic tendency.
This book will serve to draw any sincere reader closer to Jesus in understanding and in practice. Pink makes a couple points in the book with which I disagreed, and these made for good discussion in the group. His word is not gospel; however, he unfolds many treasures of the gospel and shines a light on the demonstration of God's love in Christ crucified.
