Arthur Walkington Pink was born in Nottingham, England on April 1, 1886 and became a Christian in his early 20s 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 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 migrated to the United States to study at Moody Bible Institute In 1916 he married Vera E Russell, 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.
