W. H. Griffith Thomas
William Henry Griffith Thomas (1861-1924), born in Owestry, Shropshire, England, was an Anglican clergyman and scholar. He received his B.A. from King’s College, London and his D.D. from Oxford (1895).
Following pastorates in London, Griffith Thomas moved his family to Toronto Canada in 1910 where he joined the faculty of Wycliffe College and taught Old Testament literature and exegesis. In 1919, the family moved to Philadelphia, and there Griffith
Thomas carried on an extensive conference and writing ministry in North America, Britain, and elsewhere. He authored several books including a systematic theology entitled The Principles of Theology based on the 39 Articles of the Anglican
Communion. Theologically conservative, Griffith Thomas was both
Calvinistic in his soteriology and
premillennial in his eschatology.
