The Doctrine of Sanctification
Discerning Real and False Notions of Holiness
Pink is acknowledged as one of the deeper thinkers of his era on subjects of doctrine and Christian living. He decided that he was only able to write this book after studying the subject for over 25 years; previous to this he felt he was too immature in his judgment to do so. Questions answered in this book include:
- Is sanctification something believers have, or something they experience?
- How is sanctification obtained – is it done for us, by us, or both?
- How may you be assured that you are being sanctified?
- Is there any difference between sanctification by the Father, Son, Spirit, faith and the Word?
- Is there any difference between sanctification and holiness?
- Does sanctification relate to the soul, or the body, or both?
- What is the connection between regeneration and sanctification?
- What is the relationship between justification and sanctification?
– and many more
The Doctrine of Sanctification is a dividing line between Roman Catholic and Celtic notions of holiness on the one hand, and the reformed evangelical view on the other. Clear and incisive, Pink is not sidetracked by the post-modern interpretations of holiness invading the Christian church.
About the Author
A. W. Pink (1886-1952) was born in England and converted as a young man in his 20s. 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. He is well-known for many life-changing books including The Sovereignty of God, The Attributes of God, and Profiting From the Word
“A superficial examination of the scriptures will reveal that holiness is the opposite of sin, yet the realization 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.” — from the author in this book
