Arthur W. Pink was born in Great Britain and immigrated to the U.S. to study at Moody Bible Institute. He pastored churches in Colorado, California, Kentucky, and South Carolina before becoming an itinerant Bible teacher in 1919. He returned to his native land in 1934, taking up residence on the Isle of Lewis, Scotland, in 1940, and remained there until his death. Most of his works first appeared as articles in Studies in Scriptures, a monthly magazine concerned solely with the exposition of Scripture.

Pink was virtually unknown and certainly unappreciated in his day. Independent Bible study convinced him that much of modern evangelism was defective. When Puritan and reformed books were generally disregarded by the Church as a whole, he advanced the majority of their principles with untiring zeal. The progressive spiritual decline of his own nation (Britain) was to him the inevitable consequence of the prevalence of a "gospel" that could neither wound (with conviction of sin) nor heal (via regeneration).

Excerpted from the Cyclopedia of Biblical, Theological, and Ecclesiastical Literature by Rev. John McClintock and James Strong.

For a comprehensive biography, see The Life of Arthur W. Pink by Iain Murray (1981), now updated. For a less complimentary 2-page view of his life, read Dan Philips' critique. But please consider, if you read it, how Satan loves to silence Christian voices by accusations of hypocrisy and unworthiness: only one is perfect; only one is worthy; truth is true, regardless who speaks it.
