VATICAN II COUNCIL DOCUMENTS:

We are keen to present the entire 16 documents of Vatican II Council that took place in the 1960s. These documents are of great interest to the entire Church of Christ, and no advanced theological education is complete without consideration of the significance of them, fostering as they do important dialogue between Catholics, Protestants (including Pentecostal, ‘full gospel’, ‘born-again’ and ‘new church’ streams), the Eastern Orthodox and Messianic Jews.  Below are two of the most important Council documents, “Lumen Gentium – Dogmatic Constitution on the Church” (1964) and “Dei Verbum -Dogmatic Constitution on Divine Revelation” (1965).

ANGELS ON ASSIGNMENT:

By Charles & Frances Hunter as told by Roland Buck (1979). This highly inspirational book has a directness and simplicity that activates faith in those that read. It provoked much controversy at the time due to the numerous angelic visitations recounted in the book, yet in my view it remains within the bounds of Scripture. During the 1980s,  I bought dozens of copies of this book for my students when I was teaching Bible school in north London. Additionally, from a historical and theological point of view, this account is an important document within the tradition of the Charismatic Renewal movement of the 1960s and 1970s. – John Ruffle.

I trust that the volumes so far are proving to be a blessing to those of you who may not have previously had access to all these volumes. All sections of the Messiah’s bride, the Church, have wonderful heritage and colour to offer their separated brethren,  and the D. H. Ruffle Memorial Library is offered as one means to build bridges of understanding, care and compassion in the love of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour. Amen.

– John E. Ruffle, 2011, updated May 2019.
