Ralph has written many articles, studies and sermons, some of which can be found on this site. Documents may be copied for others to read provided no changes are made without permission and credit is given to the author. Some articles are rather long, so you may want to copy them to your PC to read.

PLEASE, if you see anything that you disagree with, let me know. If convinced, I will correct it and if not, I will explain why not.

Proverbs 9:8 says, Reprove not a scorner, lest he hate thee. Rebuke a wise man and he will love thee.
Proverbs 12:15 says, The way of a fool is right in his own eyes, but a wise man listens to advice.

Try me to see if I am a fool and a scorner, or if I am wise and love you!

Rabban Gamaliel

This book was published in early 2006 and a signed copy is available for just $15 including postage. But you can also download an updated free digital copy of Rabban Gamaliel as a Word document by clicking on the above link.

For more information about the book, go to the following website:


Chips & Crumbs

Ralph's autobiography was first offered in digital form in 2014 but it will never be finished! It was originally written for our children and now more for the grandchildren, but anyone can read it.

You can download it as a Word document free by clicking on the above link. It is over 500 letter-size pages and 3 MB, so be certain before printing it!

Images of the Creator Should be Creative

This book was "completed" in 2017 and I hope to receive critical reviews from readers. I am always willing to make corrections if convinced. An appendix titled Art in Missions, Evangelism and the Church of Jesus Christ includes many pictures.

All books and articles are
available for free download.
The author appreciates letters,
including corrections or different
opinions. That is another good
reason to keep it digital.
I can always make
needed changes.
