Algernon James Pollock

1864-1957. Plymouth Brethren* minister. Born in Newcastle-upon-Tyne of a distinguished legal family, he was a banker until in his late twenties he was called to the ministry. For the rest of his life he “lived by faith,” without stipend and traveling the world as evangelist and teacher. A member of the Glanton Brethren (a branch of Plymouth but not Exclusive), his influence kept them from divisions. He studied Spiritualism and wrote articles, tracts, and books on devotion and prophecy (he was a dispensationalist), and for many years edited The Gospel Messenger.
