Dr. Arthur Tappan (A.T.) Pierson (1837-1911) was a prominent Presbyterian minister, mission theorist, and Bible expositor. He received his education at Hamilton College (B.A., 1857) and Union Theological Seminary, New York (B.D., 1860). Among his pastorates were the Bethany Tabernacle in Philadelphia and Spurgeon's London Tabernacle in England. He was a leading promoter of the Student Volunteer Movement (SVM) and was editor of The Missionary Review of the World. He was a popular speaker at pre-millennial bible prophecy conferences and various "higher life" and holiness gatherings, especially those related to the Keswick movement. For a time he served as president of Gordon College. After his death admirers established the Pierson Bible College in Seoul, Korea in his honor. Many of his books have remained popular and are currently in print more than eighty years after his death.
