The foundation of all true knowledge of God must be a clear mental apprehension of His perfections (i.e. the attributes of God) as revealed in Holy Scripture. An unknown God can neither be trusted, served, nor worshiped. In this booklet an effort has been made to set forth some of the principal perfections of the Divine character.
“Each chapter of this classic work abounds with a high view of God that elevates the soul. Here is a brief, but profound study of the many attributes of God’s perfect character. Each page is not only doctrinal study, but devotional encounter for the reader. Here is a treasure house of God-centered, God-exalting truths that transforms our worship, walk, and witness. This is Pink at his best.”
–Steven Lawson (President of OnePassion Ministries, as well as Professor of Preaching in the masters and doctoral programs at The Master’s Seminary, Sun Valley, California.)
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.
A classic bestseller built on a timeless premise: Failure to understand God’s character leads to a skewed perception of the Divine—one that is too often cast in our own image. Seeking to remedy this, Pink outlines 17 key characteristics of the Almighty, including his sovereignty, immutability, patience, love, and faithfulness.
