Pink’s shorter treatise is marked by his ability to summarize for you the great thinkers on the subject, put it in understandable language, and point out the chain of Bible verses which demonstrate what God has said about it from Genesis to the Revelation. Myriads of false hopes are due to misunderstanding God’s character (attributes).
You can always count on Pink to break new ground. He will summarize the great thinkers on a subject for you, in understandable language.
He will line up all the pertinent Scriptures for you, and prove from them disturbing things you never dreamed of. Or else he will use them to probe deep into your subconscious self, revealing attitudes you would rather not openly adhere to.
Here is a sample of that from this book: ‘It is sad indeed to find so many professing Christians who appear to regard the wrath of God as something for which they need to make an apology, or at least they wish there were no such
thing. While some would not go so far as to openly admit that they consider it a blemish in the Divine character, yet they are far from regarding it with delight. They like not to think of it, and, if possible, rarely to hear it. And if God’s holy wrath is mentioned without a secret resentment rising up in their hearts against it, it is because some harbor the delusion that God’s
wrath is not consistent with His goodness, and so they seek to banish it from their thoughts.’
This short study on God’s attributes is worthy of your time. In fact, there are few subjects in theology which are so much misunderstood as the attributes of God. It is the basis of myriads of false hopes, as is all ignorance of the Scriptures.
