John Glenville – Joseph and his Dreams (40 min)

John Glenville – Joseph and his Dreams (40 min)

John Glenville (1920-2013), raised in the darkness of high-Anglicanism, was saved in 1938 through the influence of a godly boss in London. His life changed immediately and completely. A part time actor, John walked off the stage, never to return. He gave himself to the Scriptures and eventually became a giant in ministry, known for his demand for “chapter and verse” and his oft-exclaimed “Maranatha”. He spent most of his life in Devon and travelled, always by train, all over the UK teaching the Word. He came to Bicester many times and never failed to make an impression. A perfect gentleman and accomplished poet, never out of a tie and waistcoat, he rose daily at 5.00am and prayed until breakfast at 8.00am. How we miss him! The first 7 minutes of this message is Mr Glenville reading the whole of Genesis 37 – word perfect and with special emphasis – after which he draws out lessons from the chapter in his own inimitable way (Recording from 1987)
