The Attributes of God
by A. W. Pink
There are myriads of things we can pursue in our lives. Some things we might look back on as a waste of time and energy, other things we can look back at and see that our pursuit was worthwhile. For the Christian, our pursuit of God will never be wasted time. It is never a futile activity for us to seek to know God more. A.W. Pink in his book, The Attributes of God helps us grow in our knowledge and love of God.
Pink seeks helps us think more deeply about our God and his many and varied attributes. This however is not just an exercise of the mind, but is a spiritual exercise. Pink says in his preface that we need, “more than a theoretical knowledge of God…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.”
This book is not just theoretical pontification about God, but the attributes the author highlights are rooted in scripture. We know God best as he has revealed himself in his Word, and this little book helps us see God more clearly as he has revealed himself in his Word. Some of the attributes we are helped to think through are, the solitariness of God, the supremacy of God, the power of God, the goodness of God, the wrath of God and the love of God.
Charles Spurgeon once said, “Nothing will so enlarge the intellect, nothing so magnify the whole soul of man, as a devout, earnest, continued, investigation of the great subject of the Deity.” So, grow your mind and your heart and commit to study the greatness of our God.
