LEVEL 1

There is no better way to describe the aim, method, and theme of this book, and how to read it, than to quote the second paragraph of Pink’s own preface:

"The foundation of all true knowledge of God must be a clear mental apprehension of His perfections as revealed in Holy Scripture. An unknown God can neither be trusted, served, nor worshipped. In this book an effort has been made to set forth some of the principal perfections of the Divine character. If the reader is to truly profit from the perusal of the pages that follow, he needs to definitely and earnestly beseech God to bless them to him, to apply His Truth to the conscience and heart, so that his life will be transformed thereby."

On the one hand, this book should certainly be considered an introduction to the attributes of God; Pink could have gone into more detail and argument on numerous points. That said, treatments like Pink’s are necessary for those who are just beginning the study of God’s attributes, and so this is one of the book’s strengths. Another strength is its emphases on the greatness of God and the necessity of teaching all of God’s perfections—emphases still very fitting for the modern church. But the chief strength of this book is its highly devotional, applicational, and hortatory purpose; the reader worships God and is transformed and encouraged while reading. This book is rightly a “new classic” in Christian literature.

Sample Pages: Contents | Preface, Chapter 1

The timeless appeal of this classic book, written by a preacher with a worldwide ministry during the first half of the twentieth century, demonstrates the deep hunger for a saving knowledge of God present in each generation. Arthur Pink sought to give readers not just a theoretical knowledge of God but pointed them toward a personal relationship of yielding to him and living according to his biblical precepts.

Pink's book explores attributes such as God's decrees, foreknowledge, sovereignty, holiness, grace, and mercy, among many others, all packaged in a style especially useful for pastors, teachers, and Bible students. Our God who is above all names cannot be found through human searching alone, Pink teaches, but can be known only as he is revealed by the Holy Spirit through his living word.
