From the moment of his conversion Paul was a man of prayer. His many prayers scattered throughout his letters are among the richest sources in all of Scripture for getting a practical insight into the subject matter of God-honoring prayer. Pink’s detailed study captures the essence of the apostle’s concern for the congregations on whose behalf he consistently prayed. However, Gleanings from Paul is much more than a mere study of Paul’s prayers. Pink’s insights help to gain a more rounded understanding of the apostle himself, the God he served, and the churches with which he worked.
Author A.W. Pink (1886-1952) served as a pastor for churches in Colorado, California, Kentucky, and South Carolina. His ministry brought him throughout the United States, Australia, and Great Britain.
The widespread circulation of Pink’s writings after his death made him one of the most influential evangelical authors in the second half of the twentieth century. — Iain H. Murrary
