Pink (1890-1953) was a Baptist Preacher in England, Australia, and the United States. Pink, assisted by his editor Mr. I. Herendeen, launched his yearly publication, Studies in the Scriptures in 1921. These continued until his death, totaling altogether 33 volumes of 288 pp. each. Most of Pink's books are taken from these yearly volumes (written monthly in 24 page format). Arthur Pink declares, ''Christianity is the religion of a Book. Christianity is based upon the impregnable rock of Holy Scripture.., Upon the foundation of the Divine inspiration of the Bible stands or falls the entire edifice of Christian truth. `If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do's' (Psalm 11:3).'' Surrender the dogma of verbal inspiration and you are left like a rudderless ship on a stormy sea, at the mercy of every wind that blows. Deny that the Bible is, without any qualification, the very Word of God, and you are left without any ultimate standard of measurement and without any supreme authority. It is useless to discuss any doctrine taught by the Bible until you are prepared to acknowledge, unreservedly, that the Bible is the final court of appeal. Grant that the Bible is a Divine revelation and communication of God's own mind and will to men, and you have a fixed starting point from which advance can be made into the domain of truth. Grant that the Bible is (in its original manuscripts) inerrant and infallible, and you reach the place where study of its contents is both practicable and profitable. It is impossible to overestimate the importance of the doctrine of the Divine inspiration of Scripture. This is the strategic center of Christian theology, and must be defended at all costs. It is the point at which our satanic enemy is constantly hurling his hellish battalions. The author shows how our need for a revelation from God is strong evince for the reliability of the Bible. He bases his arguments for the Divine inspiration of the Bible on its solid and undeniable internal evidences, on its indestructibility, and on its powerful in influences on human history. The believer wild experience a strengthening of faith, and the seeker will be struck by the reality of God's redeeming work on behalf of fallen humanity.
