New Look and More Books for 2012


Over the past week, here at the D. H. Ruffle Memorial Library blog, we’ve been busy adding thousands of pages of FREE Biblical resources for you to read or download. We have a whole section on Church History and another on Christian Classics. Of course, we still have eight different English Bible versions to read or download, as well as numerous Bible Study Aids, such as Vine’s Expository Dictionary and Mathew Henry’s Commentary.

This image reveals what a medieval commentary on the Gospels looks like. You can read a clear version of St. Thomas Aquinas’s 4 volume, 8 book work right here on line!

In all, around 40 new documents have been added since we last sent out a blog post, and new items are being added too! Finally, the entire design of the Library has been updated, to make it a lot easier to see the PDF links for your FREE access.

With every blessing for this new year,

John Ruffle

HISTORY Page Added (includes Early Church Fathers)


As we celebrate the Nativity of our Lord around the world, I have created a brand-new page detailing how we received our New Testament, and including important historical documents such as Eusebius, and from a slightly later period, the Ecclesiastical History of England, by the Venerable Bede. Also you’ll find an article by the 20th century theologian, F.F. Bruce and more!

Click on the link HERE or go to the top menu or right-hand “pages” menu and click on “HISTORY” to access the new page!
