Donald Guthrie Autobiography

When I arrived as an undergraduate student at London Bible College in 1987, Donald Guthrie was no longer on the faculty. However, he and his family lived in the local area, and from time to time we saw him at the college, whether using the library, chatting with former colleagues, or dancing – kilt and all – on Burns Night! He was clearly loved and deeply respected by those who knew him and worked with him.

He eventually died in 1992, but would have been 100 years old yesterday.

Members of his family have kindly made available online a 40,000-word autobiography (which was very nearly trashed) by Donald, which is available as a series of posts from here.

I have not finished reading yet, but I am enjoying it. Donald and Mary were members of a church that supported Sonia and I when we were with OMF. We were invited for a meal each time we were home on furlough and enjoyed their company. It was good to renew friendship when I went to work at LBC. Roger Howe

Hi Roger – that’s lovely to hear. I didn’t know of that personal connection you had with the Guthries. Trust you’re keeping well – Antony
