The Antichrist is an in-depth study of who and what the Antichist is or will be. Arthur W. Pink traces all biblical references to the Antichrist including the Psalms, the Prophets, the Gospels, the Epistles, and Revelation. This provides us with a vivid image of the evil one as well as a window into the evil acts that he will perpetrate. A. W. Pink shows the development of the idea that the system of the Roman papacy is the Antichrist and demonstrates it as an error resulting from the papacy's persecution of Christians in the middle ages. He argues that the intensity of their experience led persecuted Christians to view the identity of the Antichrist as a system rather than as an individual person. Against this error Pink constructs from Scripture a profile of the Antichrist. He demonstrates expository preaching and gives a clear example of how the Bible interprets itself. The book is a collection of lectures given by him between 1913 and 1923. His argument is laid out in the Introduction. The next two chapters show why he does not believe the Roman papacy can be the Antichrist; Chapters Three through Seven give a profile of the Antichrist's identity; and Chapters Eight through Seventeen are an exposition of the theme through the Bible. Through it all runs Pink's dry humor. In this captivating study of Satans false messiah, Pink arranges biblical teaching on the Antichrist around his origin and identity, the time of his appearance, his work and doom, as well as tracing all references to him in the Psalms, the Prophets, the Gospels, the Epistles, and Revelation. This vivid biography of the Lawless One, the full embodiment of human wickedness, is an essential resource for the student of the Scriptures.
