Welcome to the website of Harry Hunter, author of Christian fiction.

This website contains lots of acrostics that can be freely used in church magazines and similar miscellanies, as well as for personal enjoyment. Harry’s distinctive device is the ‘rhyming acrostic’. 

Harry Hunter is the pen name of a retired academic who lives with his wife (and cat) at West Kilbride on the Ayrshire coast.

Harry also writes books (follow the Books tab at the top). His latest novella – “The Kilfinan Treasure” – was published in spring 2019 by Instant Apostle. If you would like to buy a copy, please consider ordering it from West Kilbride’s (very quick and efficient) Timberbooks.


Through 2019, I added a new rhyming acrostic each month, but in 2020 I’ve changed tack and am progressively re-writing the ‘Acrostic Bible’. It is clear from internet traffic data that this section is the most popular, but it was written quite quickly when I was getting the site started three years ago, and it would benefit from revision. As I work my way through the Bible in 2020 I’ll gradually refine the existing acrostics – revised acrostics will start with a red capital, so you can chart my progress.


A useful tip! If you are copying acrostics for use elsewhere please check that the initial letter of each line remains highlighted, or else readers often don’t realise it’s an acrostic.

Any of the material on this site, with the exception of ‘Taking The High Road’ and ‘The Kilfinan Treasure’, may be freely copied.

Happy reading!
