Alexander Whyte was a Scottish preacher, with a passion for the lost. He was born at Kirriemuir in Forfarshire and educated at the University of Aberdeen and at New College, Edinburgh.
He entered the ministry of the Free Church of Scotland and after serving as colleague in Free St John's, Glasgow (1866-1870), removed to Edinburgh as colleague and successor to Dr RS Candlish at Free St Georges. In 1909 he succeeded Dr Marcus Dods as principal, and professor of New Testament literature, at New College, Edinburgh.
He will always be remembered for his preaching for no ruler has held his subjects more captive than Alexander Whyte did from his pulpit.
After suffering a heart attack followed by several minor attacks, Whyte resigned his post and retired to Buckinghamshire. There he devoted the remainder of his life to reading and writing. He died January 6, 1921 in his sleep.
