The Sovereignty of God
Frequently called one of the five most life-changing books of this century, and certainly among those we know, we have heard this testimony.
“Present day conditions call loudly for a new examination and new presentation of God’s omnipotence, God’s sufficiency, God’s sovereignty. From every pulpit in the land it needs to be thundered that God still lives, that God still observes, that God still reigns. Faith is now in the crucible, it is being tested by fire,and there is no fixed and sufficient resting-place for the heart and mind but in The Throne of God. What is needed now, as never before, is a full, positive, constraining setting forth of the Godhood of God.”
— from the author, Arthur W. Pink
This book can be overpowering to readers, but should the subject of a sovereign God be anything less? It is certain that the many times it has been printed have been used of God to convince people that He is, indeed, sovereign Pink demonstrates from the Scriptures that God both elects and reprobates, as Romans 9:21-23 clearly teaches. It is an important guide for those who are not yet convinced of God’s absolute sovereignty over all persons and events.
