Biography

Wallin’s fa­ther, Ed­ward Wall­in, be­came pas­tor of the church at Maze Pond, South­wark, in 1703.

A crip­ple from in­fan­cy due to a nurse’s care­less­ness, Ben­ja­min was tu­tored by John Need­ham.

For a while, he en­gaged in bu­si­ness, then di­rect­ed his at­ten­tion to Chris­tian min­is­try. He preached his first ser­mon in 1780, and the fol­low­ing year be­came pas­tor of the church where his fa­ther had served, con­tin­u­ing in that pas­tor­ate the rest of his life.

Works

Besides ma­ny oc­ca­sion­al ser­mons, Wall­in pub­lished se­ver­al es­says, and in 1750, Ev­an­ge­li­cal Hymns and Songs.
