Publisher's Summary

The grand truth of election takes us back to the beginning of all things. It predated the entrance of sin into the world, the fall of man, the incarnation of Christ, and the proclamation of the gospel. A correct understanding of it, especially in its relation to the everlasting covenant, is absolutely essential if we are to be kept from fundamental error. If the foundation be faulty, then the building erected upon it cannot be sound; and if we err in our conceptions of this basic truth, then in just proportion, so will our grasp of all other truth be inaccurate.

This classic text on the subject of election, or predestination to eternal life, is essential for any Christian's library but especially that of the pastor or clergyman.

An excellent book

I truly appreciated the balanced and sensitive approach used in presenting this often-times misunderstood yet vitally important doctrine.

There is an unacceptably high number of people who, in the main, testify of their former Christian walk and experience, yet have abandoned it to become atheistic in their worldview. WHY?

This book provides the answer.

It is a tragic reality of today's Christian church being content with increasing numbers of people attending church, but with little to no genuine discipleship and serious study of the Word of God, as authoritative and true.

How many come every week, yet fail to have a genuine heart-change by God? How many genuinely believe that their church and spiritual experience must be what Christianity is, yet their hearts are, in fact, far from Him?

This is a serious issue that the Christian church worldwide must overcome by genuine discipleship and treasuring God's Word rather than using all manner of human interpretations to try to compromise and sweeten the bitter realities contained therein.

Superb Theologian

Pink is one of the great theologians of the age of grace that God has given us. He may quite well be one of the least spoken of and highly underrated.

What a joy that he chose me!

I really enjoyed this book. What he taught that he chose the bride of Christ before the foundation of the world. How that energizes me to spread the word to the lost in the world so that the rest of his elect shall come to Him. It’s not a prayer you say But God!!

Solid Meat

In his usual style, Pink exhausts and proves the doctrine of election, serving solid meat for hungry souls.

Great book!

This was a very powerful teaching and I believe that every christain should have this book as part of their library and should be read over and over again and shared with others. A lot of people disagree with many things that he said in the book but it's all biblical and just like He said that those that are predestined, the remnant which is the Remnant's remnant, Jesus Christ knows those that belong to him and just like he said in the word, that his sheep knows his voice, and they follow him. So, those who have ears hears what the Spirit is saying to the ones that have been predestined, the election, the ones that have been predestined to be with Jesus. Those who have ears will receive what this teaching is saying to those that truly belong to the church of Jesus Christ and to be encouraged in their faith walk and this journey with our Lord.

Good content, poor narration.

The content of the book is good, but the narrator mispronounces many words and in other places says the wrong word.

Surprised In an Unpleasant Way

A. W. Pink has a good reputation, but this work was a surprising disappointment. Reference to Proverbs 3 does not align with the Jewish perspective. Reference to Anglo-Saxon as elected, over the last 500 years, is not supported by the historical sufferage of women, Native Americans, Africans, Jews and women in the USA. Those who trust in ADONAI are known by their adherence to the Tanakh and love, period.

errors in the books

the vast majority of the population of the british isles during the 16th and 17th centuries as well as the centuries before and after the centuries covered in the book would’ve drunk beer of a low alcohol content children and adults alike puritans and non puritans equally due to the highly toxic and dangerous water quality, so to state Samuel drink virtually water is wrong , if he didn’t he would’ve been costuming water containing animal and human excreta, pathogens from dead bodies, pollutants from tanneries etc
