A. W. Pink
Arthur Walkington Pink (1886-1952) evangelist and Biblical scholar
Pink was born in Nottingham, England on April 1, 1886 and became a Christian in his early 20's. Though born to Christian parents, prior to conversion he migrated into a Theosophical society (an occult gnostic group popular in England during that time), and quickly rose in prominence within their ranks. His conversion came from his father's patient admonitions from Scripture. It was the verse, Proverbs 14:12, 'there is a way which seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death,' which particularly struck his heart and compelled him to renounce Theosophy and follow Jesus.
Desiring to grow in knowledge of the Bible, Pink immigrated to the United States to study at Moody Bible Institute. In 1916 he married Vera E. Russell, who was from Kentucky. However, he left after just two months for Colorado, then California, then Britain. From 1925 to 1928 he served in Australia, including as pastor of two congregations from 1926 to 1928, when he returned to England, and to the United States the following year. He eventually pastored churches Colorado, California, Kentucky and South Carolina.
In 1922 he started a monthly magazine entitled Studies in Scriptures which circulated among English-speaking Christians worldwide, though only to a relatively small circulation list of around 1,000.
In 1934 Pink returned to England, and within a few years turned his Christian service to writing books and pamphlets. Pink died in Stornoway, Scotland on July 15, 1952. The cause of death was anemia.
After Pink's death, his works were republished by the Banner of Truth Trust and reached a much wider audience as a result. Biographer Iain Murray observes of Pink, "the widespread circulation of his writings after his death made him one of the most influential evangelical authors in the second half of the twentieth century." His writing sparked a revival of expository preaching and focused readers' hearts on biblical living.

A.W. Pink was an English evangelist of Puritan and Calvinist background who lived in the 19th century. His work Antichrist is a complete collection of all the Bible's references to an antichrist figure, from both the Old and New Testaments. Pink first describes the nature of the Antichrist -- who he will be like, what his purpose is, etc. Then he works through all of the names used to describe the Antichrist in scripture (The Lawless One, The Son of the Morning, The Prince that Shall Come). He notes the "genius and character" of the Antichrist, compares him to Christ, and even outlines his doom. Before conversion, Pink was a member of an occult gnostic group, and so shows special interest in this dark, speculative subject, but his work is studied and replete with Biblical references. Not for the faint of heart, this book serves as both an informative study guide and a warning for modern Christians. -Abby Zwart, CCEL Staff Writer
