Book Summary of The Attributes of God by Arthur W. Pink


There are certain things that signal the deep thirst every generation has for a saving knowledge of who God is. One of those things comes in the form of books written to explore the Bible’s understanding of God’s attributes. 

One work that has lasted over several generations is The Attributes of God by Arthur W. Pink. Pink gives a thorough look at different aspects of God’s character packaged in a way that is readable for scholars of God’s Word and any follower of Christ alike. 

Addressed are attributes of God like sovereignty, love, and grace, and the emphasis is on how our knowledge of God should direct true believers to live for His glory alone. 

“A spiritual and saving knowledge of God is the greatest need of every human nature.” (p. 7) The foundation of wisdom for mankind is the knowledge of who God is. It is a knowledge that should lead to obedience. “God is only truly known in the soul as we yield ourselves to Him, and submit to His authority.” (p. 7)

All of God’s attributes work together perfectly to bring the will of Him who desires the very best for His creation. God’s knowledge is unending, His holiness drives both his love and wrath, and the Lord’s sovereignty rules over all.
