I am personally convinced that A.W. Pink is one of the greatest gifts the Lord gave unto his church in order to clear away much of the error and rubbish that was gaining foothold amongst the believers in his day. And this book, “The Attributes of God” contributed much toward this, and is still being used of God to establish His children in a true knowledge of Him. For this is the principle thing God desires, i.e. that we know Him! [see Jer9:23,24].
After I was regenerated I initially sat under some erroneous Arminian teaching. I was taught that God created the human race because He was ‘lonely’ and needed someone to love. Brother Pink undid this error in his very first chapter on the ‘Attributes of God’ [AOG] as he expounds on the ‘Solitariness of God’! He says, “During a past eternity, God was alone: self-contained, self-sufficient, self-satisfied; in need of nothing. Had a universe, had angels, had human beings been necessary to Him in any way, they also had been called into existence from all eternity. The creating of them when He did, added nothing to God essentially. He changes not (Mal3:6), therefore His essential glory can be neither augmented nor diminished.

As for Christ’s Atonement I was taught, that "If the sinner believes, then Christ died for him; if the sinner does not believe, then Christ did not die for him; thus the sinner’s act was made the cause of its own object, as though his believing would make that to be which otherwise was not. Again Pink shattered this insane absurdity when he wrote, “They (Arminians) lower the all efficacious Atonement, which has actually redeemed everyone for whom it was made, to a mere “remedy,” which sin-sick souls may use if they feel disposed to; and they enervate the invincible work of the Holy Spirit to an “offer” of the Gospel which sinners may accept or reject as they please. The “god” of this twentieth century no more resembles the Supreme Sovereign of Holy Writ than does the dim flickering of a candle the glory of the midday sun”. [AOG, Chap 5]

Finally Pink helped me unlearn one of the greatest of theological errors that is prevalent even in ‘Reformed’ circles and a truth that is hard to receive. I.e. God is Sovereign in His love. Plainly said, He does not love everybody. Once again I cannot do better than quote Brother Pink, “God Himself is sovereign, under obligations to none, a law unto Himself, acting always according to His own imperial pleasure. Since God be sovereign, and since He be love, it necessarily follows that His love is sovereign. Because God is God, He does as He pleases; because God is love, He loves whom He pleases. Such is His own express affirmation: “Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated” (Rom 9:19). There was no more reason in Jacob why he should be the object of Divine love, than there was in Esau. They both had the same parents, and were born at the same time, being twins; yet God loved the one and hated the other! Why? Because it pleased Him to do so. [AOG, Chap 15]
Almost every chapter of this book cleared away much of the rubbish I had been taught, while revealing a true knowledge of God. As Pink said in his preface to this book, “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”.
So read it and be blessed.
