The Sovereignty of God
In his book The Sovereignty of God, A.W. Pink outlines the sovereignty of God from a Calvinist standpoint. He defines God's sovereignty, and then explains how God's sovereignty is characterized in creation and salvation. Then Pink discusses the relationship between God's sovereignty and the human will. Finally, Pink describes the appropriate attitude Christians should take towards God's sovereignty, and considers several difficulties that Christian may face in adopting this attitude. The issues Pink raises in this book have previously been addressed by many prominent figures such as St. Augustine, St. Aquinas, Calvin, and Jonathan Edwards. Pink studied these wise men and draws from their conclusions in his own writing, but ultimately, the author places his perspective in light of God's Word. Pink strongly believed that true faith rests "not in the wisdom of men but in the power of God." Pink wants his readers to gain a firm grasp on the biblical text rather than the secondary literature, and he aims to highlight Scripture in his book.
