Edward Elihu Whitfield, some 27 years William Kelly's junior, was a gifted linguist and teacher. Besides editing J. N. Darby's English version of the Old Testament (4 parts, London, 1883-89) and compiling William Kelly's expositions of Mark and Luke from the Bible Treasury, he wrote Outlines of Old Testament Study, Historical and Critical (1883).

Edward Elihu Whitfield's later involvement with The Faith and the Flock (associated with the Open Brethren) accords with the conciliatory and peace-making spirit evident in his contributions to Pickering's compilation of Chief Men among the Brethren (especially his account of John Gifford Bellett).
