Arthur W. Pink
a biographical sketch

The following is taken from the flyleaf of the 1976 printing of
A. W. Pink’s book, Gleanings in the Godhead, printed by Moody Press.

Arthur W. Pink was born in Nottingham, England. He died in Stornway, Scotland, in 1952. His widespread ministry included pastorates in Australia and the United States. He originated Studies in the Scriptures, a monthly magazine concerned solely with the exposition of the Scripture.
Mr. Pink’s view of the Scriptures, of doctrine, and of Christian practice was not the view of the twentieth century, nor even of many of his contemporary Evangelicals. Few men have traveled so widely and yet remained so uninfluenced by prevailing opinions and accepted customs. Independent Bible study convinced him that much of modern evangelism was defective at its very foundations; when Puritan and Reformed books were thrown out, he advanced the majority of their principles with untiring zeal. He was, in some ways, a Puritan born out of time.

Events have justified his outlook. Two World Wars have substantiated his view on human depravity; the progressive decline of his nation (Britain) was to him the inevitable consequence of the prevalence of a gospel which is able neither to wound nor heal.
Familiar with the whole range of revelation, Mr. Pink could divide the truth with due weight and emphasis. He was rarely sidetracked from the great themes of Scripture—grace, justification, and sanctification. One looks in vain for any quaint theories on prophecy and kindred subjects. The work of God the Father and God the Holy Spirit receive their proper emphasis as well as the work of the Son.
