Ellsworth Makes Book Donation to Ryan Center
April 3, 2008 - Roger Ellsworth, pastor for over 40 years and former president of the Illinois Baptist State Association, has recently donated over 600 books to Union University’s Ryan Center for Biblical Studies. The books include several bibles, some with Hebrew and Greek texts, commentaries, theological works, and many others. Center director Ray Van Neste said, “This is a significant gift, with many great books which will further the work of the Ryan Center and continue benefiting a new generation of pastors.” Ellsworth is the father of Union University’s Director of News and Media Relations, Tim Ellsworth.
The Ryan Center is glad to receive book donations, which help further the Center’s mission to promote thoughtful and disciplined reading, study, interpretation, and application of the Bible throughout the world.
