Arthur W. Pink was born in Nottingham,England, in 1886, and born again by God’s Spirit in 1908. He studied for only six weeks at Moody Bible Institute inChicago, U.S.A., before beginning pastoral work in Colorado. He later pastored churches in California, Kentucky, and South Carolina before moving on to preach and teach in Sydney, Australia. In 1934, he returned to his native England, moving to the Isle of Lewis, Scotland, in 1940, where he remained until his death in 1952.
His monthly journal, Studies in the Scriptures, was published without interruption from 1922 to 1953, the remaining writings being printed after his death. Each issue of the Studies normally included six to eight expository articles. Sustaining single-handedly this volume of in-depth Biblical exposition over his lifetime is a testimony to the grace of God upon his labors. His writings are known for their clarity, zealous exhortation, careful exposition, and Christ-centeredness. While virtually unknown to the Christian world when he died, his writings continue to grow in their influence upon God’s people around the world.
