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. If you like this site, please share it with your friends and your church magazine editor.

Acrostics mean a lot to me because they are a memorable way of finding new insights into a familiar topic. They are quite hard to write, especially if you want them to rhyme, but that’s the main point – they force you to re-appraise what you thought you already knew.

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.


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!
