Arthur Tappan Pierson

1837-1911. Presbyterian minister and writer. Educated at Hamilton College and Union Seminary, New York, he held pastorates in New York State, in Detroit, Indianapolis, and Philadelphia. At Bethany Presbyterian, Philadelphia, an institutional church, he organized what grew into the city's First Penny Savings Bank. He wrote for many periodicals, was editor of Missionary Review of the World, and was a student of prophecy, missions history, and comparative religion, as well as a dispensationalist. From 1891 to 1893 he was minister of Spurgeon's Tabernacle, London. A leader in the Bible Conference Movement and the Student Volunteer Movement, he was also a consulting editor for the Scofield Bible, lecturer in Moody Bible Institute from 1893, and one of the few Americans to speak at Keswick. The Pierson Bible Institute, Seoul, Korea, was an outgrowth of his ministry. His many books deal with biblical criticism, missions, and devotion.
