Society Religion and Spirituality Christianity Denominations Holiness Christian and Missionary Alliance Simpson, A. B.
Rev. Albert Bejamin Simpson D.D. was the founder of the Christian and Missionary Alliance. The denomination has its root in two societies founded by Simpson in 1887: The Christian Alliance, and The Evangelical Missionary Alliance. In 1897, the two were merged to form the C&MA, which was originally a missionary society. He also started the magazine which today is known as Alliance Life -- formerly known as The Alliance Weekly (1911-1958) and The Alliance Witness (1958-1987). In addition to his work as a pastor and organizer of missionary societies, he wrote over 70 books and many articles. He also wrote hymns, but was a much better lyricist than composer; generally speaking, the ones that are still in use are those for which he wrote the words and someone else wrote the tune.
