A.W.Pink’s Blog!

Pink the Iconoclast

A BLOG CONTAINING SOME OF THE CHOICE WRITINGS FROM A.W. PINK’ LETTERS AND BOOKS

Pink was born in Nottingham, England on April 1, 1886 and became a Christian in his early 20’s. Though born to Christian parents, prior to conversion he migrated into a Theosophical society (an occult gnostic group popular in England during that time), and quickly rose in prominence within their ranks. His conversion came from his father’s patient admonitions from Scripture. It was the verse, Proverbs 14:12, ‘there is a way which seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death,’ which particularly struck his heart and compelled him to renounce Theosophy and follow Jesus.

Desiring to grow in knowledge of the Bible, Pink immigrated to the United States to study at Moody Bible Institute. In 1916 he married Vera E. Russell, who was from Kentucky. However, he left after just two months for Colorado, then California, then Britain. From 1925 to 1928 he served in Australia, including as pastor of two congregations from 1926 to 1928, when he returned to England, and to the United States the following year. He eventually pastored churches Colorado, California, Kentucky and South Carolina.

In 1922 he started a monthly magazine entitled Studies in Scriptures which circulated among English-speaking Christians worldwide, though only to a relatively small circulation list of around 1,000.

In 1934 Pink returned to England, and within a few years turned his Christian service to writing books and pamphlets. Pink died in Stornoway, Scotland on July 15, 1952. The cause of death was anemia.

After Pink’s death, his works were republished by the Banner of Truth Trust and reached a much wider audience as a result. Biographer Iain Murray observes of Pink, “the widespread circulation of his writings after his death made him one of the most influential evangelical authors in the second half of the twentieth century.” His writing sparked a revival of expository preaching and focused readers’ hearts on biblical living.

Brother A.W. Pink has had a great influence in my life and through his writings, he being dead yet speaketh! In Pink I found a like-minded brother. Here was finally someone who not only preached the doctrines of Grace FAITHFULLY but also RENOUNCED the existing Christendom of his day as APOSTATE. It grieves my heart that in our day even many who claim to love Pink’s writings and have even made them available on the Web are themselves part of the Great Whore!

I have always had a burden to publish on the web the so called ‘controversial’ and ‘offensive’ things he said. So here it is!

The purpose of this site is not to present what is generally available on the Net by Arthur Walkington Pink. There are many websites which have made available the works of A.W.Pink and we praise God for them. But this is a site aimed at making available the strong meat and controversial things he said. We are in agreement with everything he said which is quoted here and we trust all God’s elect would agree!

I came to understand the Reformed Faith twenty four years ago. But I truly did not really understand it like I should have until I read A.W. Pink’s ‘The Sovereignty of God’! I was first given the compromised condensed form of this book published by the ‘Banner of truth’, and I was so blessed. But sadly I had not eaten the whole meal until I read the complete book published by The Bakers!

I said this then, and I’ll say it again – There is no writer who is familiar with the Scriptures and is faithful to it as A.W.Pink! He stands in a class of his own and has an insight into the scriptures which is second to none!

Unlike most writers of our day, Pink never wrote anything just to be writing. He really had something to say. Not only that, but what sets Pink apart from the rest is that He saw the present Christendom of his day for what it really was …. APOSTATE! And in obedience to his Lord he steered clear of it and admonished others to do so.

He was no half-baked, pusillanimous, milquetoast, string for a backbone ‘panty waist’ like the majority of the ‘Reformed’ preachers today! Like His Master and His Apostle Paul, he could care less what people thought of him as long as he was faithful to His God!

A lot of folks who read Pink and quote him today do not really know him. They ought to read his letters to understand where he really stood!

Oh may God give us more men like A.W. Pink!

  2. Please make sure to correct the name of Bro Pink as I really do love his writings. It should be ‘Arthur Walkington Pink’ and not Author as seen in the first third para.

  3. Can I have a soft copy of ‘An Arminian in Calvinists Clothing’ full book in a single PDF (or ePUB/eMOBI format) format retaining the formatting of all text to my email? Once if I get it would be more convenient for me to read on my IPAD and IPhone devices when am mobile. am just beginning to browse your blog…

  4. Mr. Jeshurun, I just finished reading a couple of articles and am very stunned at the preciseness and accuracy with how you have truthfully dealt with scripture and the ever-growing apostasy of this day. Thank you for this incredibly resourceful site. May I ask if you are based in California?

    • Debbie, please pardon my late response. No, I am not based in California. I am based much further east . . .in India actually. And Sister, thank you for your kind words. Please write to my gmail account . . . I would like to hear your testimony and all that the Lord has done for you.
