    I’m curious. What about his personality prevented him from staying in any one church for an extended period of time?

    Hey Ben,

    I am really enjoying your posts.

    some one once said that if a Christian could be a curmudgeon then that was AW Pink to a tee.

    He was the sort of guy that seemed to be ‘as one born out of due time’. He was brilliant but likely insufferable.

    It is a shame he couldn’t have plugged into a church and had an itinerant and writing ministry rather than the demands of a single pastorate.

    that’s my ‘nutshell’ on Pink.

    I did enjoy Murray’s book but felt he gave him a softer ride than he should have for baling out of church all those years.

    Yes, he was gifted in analysis and argument but seemed to struggle with applying the Word in his own approach to people, e.g. being charitable, able to be entreated, and restorative. I read elsewhere that Pink in his later years admitted his personal ministry was a failure overall. The whole “one another” emphasis in the Word is a challenge, isn’t it…
