Arthur W. Pink
Doctrine of Election (article)
Doctrine of Election (full book)
The following is excerpted from John MacArthur:
"Arthur Pink was a master of biblical exposition, carefully mining the biblical text for every ounce of true meaning, every nuance of doctrine, and every point of personal application he could discover. He always wrote with heartfelt conviction and persuasive insight. He was warm and positive, yet bold and unequivocal.
"He was at his best whenever he wrote about Christ, and he was never more focused, more thorough, or more compelling then when he proclaimed Christ crucified.
"Pink certainly had no wish to tone down the offense of the cross just to accommodate the tastes of the contemporary culture. It is the kind of straightforward teaching that is desperately needed in an era when difficult biblical truths are sometimes purposely softened, made foggy, or revised to suit the preferences of sophisticated postmodernity. Arthur Pink would have none of that--nor should we. Here is an ideal antidote to some of the superficiality and silliness of today's prevailing spiritual climate."
