William Graham Scroggie
William Graham Scroggie was born at Great Malvern, England,
of Scottish parents. Being one of nine children in a home
without normal educational advantages, he grew up among the
brethren, and later, after a few years in business, entered
Spurgeon's College in London at the age of 19 to train for
the Baptist ministry.
Turned out of his first two churches in London and
Yorkshire because of his opposition to modernism and
worldliness, he set himself to the study of the Bible. And,
in the next two difficult years, when he had to live with
little to support him, he laid the foundation of all his sub-
sequent work. After pastorates in England, Scotland, New Zea-
land, Australia, Tasmania, the United States, and Canada, he
became pastor of Spurgeon's Metropolitan Tabernacle, London,
during World War II.
His home was bombed on three occasions, and his his-
toric church building destroyed during an air raid.
Increasing ill health forced him to retire in 1944.
He devoted his remaining years to completing his literary
work, The Unfolding Drama of Redemption. He died on December
