Hamilton Smith

Hamilton Smith (1862 - 1943) was born in Castelnau Villas, Barnes, to John, a mercantile marine captain and Ellen, his wife, living first in Sutton, Surrey, and later in Weston-super-Mare. His mother, Ellen, was the elder sister of Clara, the mother of F. B. Hole.

While his ministry was confined to England during his life-time, his writing have gone out around the world since his death of myocarditis following influenza at the age of eighty.

Hamilton Smith is a much loved expositor of the Scriptures. He wrote on many different portions of the Bible but is probably best known for his character studies of Abraham, Elijah, Elisha, Joseph, and Ruth which have been published in several languages. His writings are terse and yet do not lack content as a consequence of their brevity. One of his effective teaching methods is short, profound comparisons and contrasts. His book on the Song of Solomon is a classic example of the way his writings draw out the heart to the One he served so faithfully all his life.

He edited "Notes of Interest on the Lord's work" (abroad) at least until August 1939 (No. 48), and contributed many magazine articles to "Scripture Truth" and many are published in "An Outline of Sound Words".
