Two modern updates of Christian classics by Dolores Kimball

I would like to recommend two well-done modern classics by Dolores Kimball: The Attributes of God in Modern English by Arthur W. Pink and The Holy War: In Modern English by John Bunyan.

The Attributes of God is a wonderful book, and Kimball has done a professional light edit of the work to make it easier to read without changing the original meaning or sacrificing any of the material. The scripture quotes have also been updated from the original King James Version to the New King James Version. This book is amazing for the high view of God that Arthur W. Pink depicts from Scripture. It is common today to think on the love, grace, and approachability of God (which are all covered in this work) while failing to contemplate His supremacy, sovereignty, and even wrath. This book strives to present a complete picture of God’s attributes in a reverent and worshipful way.

The Holy War is an allegory by John Bunyan, who is best known for one of his other allegories, The Pilgrim’s Progress. Bunyan uses a city, Mansoul, as a symbol for the traitorous soul that needs the heroic and gracious actions of the Prince of Heaven to save it from sin and Satan. Bunyan uses both politics and warfare to depict the many different types of attacks and deceptions that a Christian must overcome. This work has hundreds of footnotes with supporting scripture references and notes.

Dolores Kimball is a Bible study teacher and women’s retreat speaker; she has worked as writer and editor for Navpress, David C. Cook Publishing, and Compassion International. If you are interested in reading either of these classics, these editions are an excellent choice!

  1. I was hoping to find a modern edition of Holy War so this is great! Although I imagine her book doesn’t contain the great illustrations from many of the original language editions. As for Pink, I’m a little torn because I find that the original language of Pink is not so old that it’s hard to understand but I am in my mid 40s so that helps. I also find that the nuances of the original language is so much more rewarding. I like to give copies of Pink books. I may seriously consider this edition nevertheless.

    Thanks for the tips!

    Also picking up some of yours. Glad you made them and they are affordable on top of that. A labour of love. I plan to give a few copies away beginning with the Owen volumes and then all your other titles. Thank you so much for your efforts. A great blessing.
