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.
Having befriended Lewis Sperry Chafer in Philadelphia, the two eventually co-founded the Evangelical Theological College (now Dallas Theological Seminary) in 1924, the year he died.
