Death of Peter C. Glover – ‘Wires from the Bunker’

Peter C Glover

Had some very sad news the other evening. My friend Peter C. Glover died on Saturday 7th June 2014. I was humbled by the invite to the funeral. I would have liked to, but I was unable to attend yesterday (23/06/2014). As yet I have heard nothing about the funeral and there seems to no mention anywhere of Peter’s passing into the presence of his Saviour.

So I’ll mention it. I trust nothing here will be upsetting to the family – I would simply like to post a brief eulogy.

Peter was a great encouragement to me and it was him that initially got me into Blogging. Without him I probably wouldn’t have bothered. And it was his encouragement that has kept me Blogging.

Sadly he never got to completely launch his new Website ‘Peter C. Glover’s British Intelligence’.  Originally his site was ‘Peter C. Glover’s Wires from the Bunker’ changing simply to ‘Peter C. Glover Wires’. (See link to the right under News Related)

He lamented the lack of a Fox News type broadcast here in the UK and the left-wing bias that is so prevalent. Just recently Brietbart launched in the UK. On his website back in March Peter wrote:

…the UK finally has an online conservative news site where it is possible to “tell it like it is” with unadorned conservative ‘knobs on’

Peter certainly ‘told it like it is’ and ‘with knobs on’. Peter was a Christian & Churchman. He was Reformed and Confessional in his theology and attempted briefly with Nick Needham (not sure if there were others involved) to launch a UK equivalent version of ‘The Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals‘. Sadly it was not to be. They also started a UK magazine that lasted for I think 16 issues – The Christian Research Journal (I think – I have them filed away). It was a good magazine I thought and a shame it ended. The magazine also collaborated with Alan Howe & Chris Hand. He was involved with the Evangelical Library in London as it was. I suspect the following days will show just how many pies Peter had his hand in. Some only know him for his (opposing) views on Wind Farms and other daft ideas but there was so much more to him than that. He was an author and well into politics informed by his Reformed theology. He will be missed. I will miss him.

So I say ‘thank you Lord for Peter C. Glover’. We continue to pray for his wife in these days. May she know the peace and comfort of her God at this difficult time.

He came and did a lecture for us in 2006: ‘Francis Schaeffer Revisited’. Available: http://www.churchaudio.org.uk/roche/REFC%20History/2006%20Frances%20Schaeffer%20-%20Peter%20Glover.mp3

There’s a brief bio on his pre-launch ‘British Intelligence’ website: http://www.petercglover.com/bio/

I would like to think there will be an obituary for him in Evangelical Times.

  1. My condolences…I pray the Lord will use his effort as a catalyst for more men and women of God to be biblical in their worldview and theology

  2. I have been a frequent visitor to to Peter C Glovers web sites for several years. I was wondering why, when recently searching for them that I could find nothing current. So I was shocked and saddened to find this report of his death.
    He was a warrior in the word (and The Word) speaking truth with clarity and force (he was once called the british Mark Steyn) rare in these days of fog and deception.
    I hope and pray others will come in to fill the space left by his passing. because we certainly need them.

    1. Hello Steve, Thanks for visiting, sorry it was such a surprise. It was a real shock for a number of people that knew him. I’d never heard him called the British Mark Steyn – but that fits. In fact it was Peter that put me onto Mark Steyn.
      I agree with you, Peter left a hole. Let’s pray God will provide someone to fill it.
