The Attributes of God
One of the best studies of The Attributes of God ever published. The unique value of this author’s work is, its brevity and simplicity in addressing the subject, making it the most useful introduction to this rich realm of Biblical truth.
“A spiritual and saving knowledge of God is the greatest need of every human creature”, writes author Arthur Pink.
In this classic work, A. W. Pink explains God’s solitariness, decrees, knowledge, foreknowledge, supremacy, sovereignty, immutability, holiness, power, faithfulness, goodness, patience, grace, mercy, love, wrath, and a final, stirring chapter on the value of the contemplation of God.
Few efforts to display the attributes of God have ever received as wide and popular a reading as Pink’s, as he makes this rich and deep subject accessible to any adult reader.

About the Author
Arthur W. Pink (1886-1952) was born in Great Britain and immigrated to the U.S. to study at Moody Bible Institute. He pastored churches in Colorado, California, Kentucky, and South Carolina before becoming an itinerant Bible teacher in 1919. From 1925-1927 he Pastored in Sydney, Australia then went to visit his hometown of Nottingham, England before returning to the U.S. He returned to his native land in 1934, taking up residence on the Isle of Lewis, Scotland, in 1940, and remained there until his death. Most of his works first appeared as articles in Studies in Scriptures, a monthly magazine concerned solely with the exposition of Scripture.
“Pink was virtually unknown and certainly unappreciated in his day. Independent Bible study convinced him that much of modern evangelism was defective. When Puritan and reformed books were generally disregarded by the Church as a whole, he advanced the majority of their principles with untiring zeal. The progressive spiritual decline of his own nation (Britain) was to him the inevitable consequence of the prevalence of a “gospel” that could neither wound (with conviction of sin) nor heal (via regeneration). After his death, beginning in the 1960s and through the efforts of the Banner of Truth, his writings began to be rediscovered and Pink has now become one of the most influential Reformed and Baptist authors of the 20th and 21st centuries.
