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.
