More About Arthur W. Pink
Arthur Walkington Pink was born in Nottingham, England on 1 April 1886 and became a Christian in 1908, at the age of 22. Though born to Christian parents, prior to conversion he migrated into a Theosophical society (the occult gnostic group which became precursor of the New Age movement, 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 seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways 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 emigrated to the United States to study at Moody Bible Institute. He left there after only two months and began his first pastorate in Silverton, Colorado. In 1916 he married Vera E. Russell (8 January 1893 – 17 July 1962), 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 in Colorado, California, Kentucky, and South Carolina.
In January 1922 he started a monthly magazine entitled Studies in the Scriptures. Its relatively small circulation list of around 1,000 included English-speaking Christians worldwide and became the basis of most of his published books.
In 1934 Pink returned to England, and within a few years turned his Christian service to writing books and pamphlets. Moving to the Isle of Lewis, Scotland, in 1940, Pink died of anemia in Stornoway, Scotland on 15 July 1952.
After Pink's death, his works were republished by a number of publishing houses, among them, Banner of Truth Trust, Baker Book House, Christian Focus Publications, Moody Press, Truth for Today, 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. Pink is left out of many biographical dictionaries and overlooked in many religious histories.

Thoughts on "Elijah" by Arthur Pink Jan 3, 2007
This book is a well written and thought provoking exposition of the life of the Old Testament prophet Elijah.
Much practical application Apr 17, 1998
Once again Pink doesn't dissappoint. In this easy to read volume, Pink looks at the events and happenings of the life of Elijah. He analyses these events, drawing attention to easily overlooked details and historical context. Pink then makes very clear application to the life of the Believer. In doing this, the reader is both challenged and stirred. Pink's ability to exergete a passage in this way is a lesson in itself. He relates the Scriptures in the manner in which I'm sure God intended them when they were written. If you love the Word of God, you will thoroughly enjoy this book.
