The Library is Alive!

It’s been a while since I’ve added any new volumes to this site, dedicated to the memory of my father, the late D.H. Ruffle who was an active, prayerful and pastoral Christian here in England during the height of the charismatic renewal.

However, it is encouraging to know that people from around the world have been using this site almost every single day since it was launched in late 2011. Somewhere in excess of people from 120 nations have been on here, although the identities of everyone is unknown since I do not require any registration of personal details. Facebook makes the boast, “Free and always shall be” but here it not only is free, but also confidential.

During 2018 I would very much like to add more titles – I have a number to upload – but also begin adding an interactive index to the site. To achieve this, I may need to re-build the entire site, but be assured that I will not be taking this out of action as and when we do that.

Your feedback will be much appreciated, especially as I evaluate the viability of taking more of my blog material from Facebook and using this instead. My main group I administer is here:

John: 45 years on and, by God’s grace, still living for the Gospel of Jesus Christ. His “ministry”? To be conformed into the image of God’s Son and to live His love.” (2 Corinthians 2:18). “I’ve lived in revival during the Jesus Movement; I’ve seen His face. Now I want nothing more than to be all-out for Jesus. As St. John the Baptist said,  ‘He must increase, I must decrease.’ That scripture has been foundation to me, since my conversion in 1972. I want to live it.” John says. [See: St. John 3:30]

The face of discipleship: This is me in 1972 or  (more probably ) 1973, at my ‘producer’s desk’ at “Radiance Media”, Eureka, California. I was but one member of an amazingly dedicated media team working tirelessly to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ by every means possible. The photo was taken by “Radiance” managing director, Gary Todoroff with his Leica M2. I am still in touch with most of my colleagues from that period of my life.  This facility in very drafty back room of the church builidng we had in Eureka, California is now a thriving Calvary Chapel.
