Publisher's Summary

"Deny that the Bible is, without any qualifications, the very word of God, and you are left without any ultimate standard of measurement and without any supreme authority." (from the book)

The Bible is the foundation of Christianity. In The Divine Inspiration of the Bible, Arthur Pink sets out to defend the belief that this holy book is, in fact, the true word of God. In doing so he examines the idea of divine inspiration and presents various arguments that aim to prove God Almighty is the author of the Bible.

This book not only examines evidence for the trustworthiness of scripture and what belief in inspiration means but also helps Christians achieve a firmer understanding of the Bible's authority.

Still Accurate Today; Eliminates modern garbage

"No one who possesses a copy of the Bible can legitimately plead ignorance of God's will. The Scripture leaves us without excuse."

This remains the truth today, and more so. We have the internet, and, the ability to obtain a FREE copy of Scripture. The historical account of the Irishman, an impoverished laborer, who was willing to buy paper and ink, and use his evenings to copy out the Bible owned by a wealthier man (the only copy in the town) is an outright testimony which should cause me great shame. This comes in chapter 9, near the end of the book. It's worth reading all of it to get to that point.

President T.W. Wilson was in office and is mentioned in this book. Better still is the use of Scripture to back and substantiate the points carefully made. What bits of then-modern references are used, it is in passing, and that makes this a useful work for serious study. Never does the author use historical accounts to prove the point, but to verify secular acknowledgement.

The narrator has a pleasant voice, and a suitable reading is made. He does follow the silly modern convention of saying "One Chronicles..." and such, rather than "First Timothy 3 and verse 16." But this doesn't alter the text. It's just a little irksome, but I am fussy. My opinion is, if you're going to read aloud a sermon, speak exactly as the author would have. when he originally presented the message.

The Anvil (Bible) that has worn out many hammers.

I have been very blessed and my faith have been renewed in the authority of God's Word; and His promise to keep it.

Very informative

I knew something didn’t sit right with me about the Black Lives Matter movement. I knew the major media was pushing distorted versions of the police death cases and saw the equally distorted public response. I kept wondering what is their agenda in trying to ignite dissidence between people. Thank you for informing me who the founders are, it explains a lot. We all know loved ones that believe and repeat whatever the mainstream media reports as if it were the ultimate truth. It’s hard to see so many good people brainwashed. I’m so thankful that I came across your book.

Laborious.

To be fair, the book is very dated. However, if one cut out all of the excess and unnecessary allegories and hyperbole, this would be a one hour production. Furthermore, his logic was weak in many cases and contradictory in a couple. It was a very tough listen, but I survived.

Very educational

I've never read a book by Pink before. I was impressed with the detail and thoroughness of his writing and the pedestal which he put the scriptures on.

Brilliant

This book has fantastic insight into the Word of God, and truly an inspiring listen.

Push through to the final chapters and you won’t be disappointed.

AW Pink has very quickly become a pillar in my scholarly library.

GREATEST BOOK ON THE GREATEST EVER BOOK!

Arthur Pink sadly is a later-in-life discovery for me. This book, in particular is proving absolutely priceless in my walk with God. Through his other books I've discovered more in depth of the Character of God, the Attributes of God. etc. this book has impacted my understanding of the impact the Bible should have on the Christian's life. Humbling and inspiring, my spiritual growth is expanded and strengthened by this hidden gem. I currently have been thru the audio version so I note my only difficulties, if you want to call them that, are with the pronunciation of certain words, stemming from the variations between British and American English. I'm ordering hard copies for myself and some dear friends who I know to be neglecting the greatest gift outside our salvation God has given us. The Bible, and its paramount importance it should have in our daily lives.

A layman's best friend in defending holy writ.

The audio voice was smooth and easy to listen. However, Arthur Pink may be my new favourite author. Sublime intelligence, deep theology, reasonably easy to grasp. Some profound insights on biblical prophecies Jesus fulfilled. This is a necessary Christian read! so encouraging.
