The Essential Arthur W. Pink Collection, which includes The Attributes of God, The Sovereignty of God, The Beatitudes and The Lord’s Prayer, is a must for every Christian’s bookshelf. Not only have we purchased one for each of our children, but our church has also purchased one for each family, which we use during our corporate Bible study time. Apart from the Bible, this book has been one of the most enlightening, edifying, and humbling books that we have ever read. Why? Because it is mostly scripture, but organized in such a way as to bring God’s Being into a glorious light. It not only gives a deeper insight and understanding into the awesome Maker of us all, but also expresses through scripture His sovereignty over everything, bringing a peace upon its readers that surpasses all understanding.     

Arthur Pink’s Preface says, “‘Acquaint now thyself with Him, and be at peace: thereby good shall come unto thee’ (Job 22:21). ‘Thus saith the Lord, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches: But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth Me, that I am the Lord’ (Jer. 9:23,24). A spiritual and saving knowledge of God is the greatest need of every human creature.     

“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 his 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.     

“Something more than a theoretical knowledge of God is needed by us. God is only truly known in the soul as we yield ourselves to Him, submit to His authority, and regulate all the details of our lives by His holy precepts and commandments. ‘Then shall we know, if we follow on [in the path of obedience] to know the Lord’ (Hos. 6:3). ‘If any man will do His will, he shall know’ (John 7:17). ‘The people that do know their God shall be strong’ (Dan. 11:32).”
