This book discusses these important issues for those wrestling with the vagaries of life. Things are not random. Our fates have long been sealed even before we arrived on earth.
Our desire for God and our common sense are gifts from God. We can go through life with peace in our heart by knowing that the good and bad come from God. Our duty is be generous, loving and forgiving always.

The blessed assurance that a believer can receive from an understanding of God's Sovereignty is well, beyond calculation.
This work elevates God and puts man where he belongs-in the dust. This doctrine, sadly many shy away from, but it is there in the pages of Scripture to those whom God has opened their eyes to see.
The one thing I must disagree with Pink on is on page 175 (Kindle) or 470 in "The Wisdom of Arthur W Pink vol 1" where he says "...that all our works (before conversion), good as well as evil, count for nothing toward salvation." It MUST be a typo error, as surely "all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags." Isaiah 64.6 even before and after conversion?
I understand that Pink was raised in Dispensationalism, subsequently came to reject it and wrote against it, yet had some strange views about prophecy regarding the Lord's Second Advent in his "Reedemer's Return" (Not recommended reading!) This I do not say lightly, and with the utmost regret, because I value highly all his other works, but then, even the Puritans, whom he studied voraciously had a dim light compared to us today), this no doubt came about from his earlier Dispensational leanings.
Having said this, he was a most voluminous writer, and well, no man is perfect,(the Saviour aside!) but certainly his soteriology is biblical.
Although the text is around 90 years old it is still easily readable. "The Sovereignty of God" is top of my list (after the KJV) of books to recommend to Christians of all ages. Just one caveat - get the original version if at all possible, NOT the Banner of Truth edition which has been corrupted by the editors. The Baker edition is excellent.
Worth wrapping your mind in Pinks work. Definitely stretched my brain.
Soli Deo Gloria
If you want to go deeper with The Lord and are prepared to be challenged by scripture, then this is a "must read".
The archaic language is a bit of a problem, but once you get into it, you don't notice it (a bit like hearing Shakespeare read by an accomplished actor).
Many would find aspects of their understanding of the Sovereignty of God severely challenged, but I would ask for a
serious consideration to be given to the biblical evidence presented. To have it on Kindle is a great joy.
