Raised in the Calvinist tradition, Baillie studied at University of Edinburgh and then at the University of Marburg, where he was influenced by the theologian Wilhelm Herrmann. After some time as a Church of Scotland parish minister, he wrote Faith in God and its Christian Consummation (1927). This led to his appointment as a professor of divinity at St Mary's College, University of St Andrews, where he spent the remainder of his life.
He was the brother of Scottish theologian John Baillie (1889-1960).
