BOOK REVIEW OF THE SEVEN SAYINGS OF THE SAVIOUR ON THE CROSS BY A.W. PINK


THE SEVEN SAYINGS OF THE SAVIOUR ON THE CROSS

By Arthur W. Pink

Published by Baker Books

Reviewed by Clint Walker


 

Arthur W. Pink was a pastor and Christian leader in the early and middle twentieth century. He was a fundamentalist preacher who was born in England, but served in America, Australia, and the United Kingdom. His writings have been beloved, and his emphasis on expository preaching has gained a strong following.


 

THE SEVEN SAYINGS OF THE SAVIOUR ON THE CROSS is a collection of sermons based upon the seven last words of Christ. Each sermon has seven points. And, each message has a theme which Pink identifies and expands upon. These sermons are very wordy, and somewhat austere for modern readers.


 

I used this resource off and on as I prepared my sermons on the topic of the seven last words. At times, this resource was very helpful. Other times I felt the author was more interested in establishing his theological points than really doing the exegetical work he needed to do with the text.
