Rosalind Beatrice Rinker (2 April 1906 – 11 January 2002) was a Christian missionary and author.

Rinker was born in New Rockford, North Dakota and served as a missionary in China with the Oriental Mission Society from 1926 to 1940.[1] She then returned to the United States and studied at Asbury College. After her graduation in 1945, she worked as a staff counselor for InterVarsity Christian Fellowship.[2]

Rinker wrote a number of books, including Prayer: Conversing With God (1959) which in 2006 was named by Christianity Today as the most influential book on evangelicals over the last fifty years.[3]
