Matt Talbot's Story Included in Small Group Faith Sharing Resource

Christopher Ruff has authored a Discipleship Series of compact small-group resources “for busy people with busy lives but open hearts,” which has been used and well received in multiple US and Canadian dioceses and parishes.
One of these is The Greatest of These is Love (2008) which “features 6 engaging sessions, each reflecting on passages from the writings of St. Paul on love and illustrating the themes through brief stories of men and women touched by grace: Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta, St. Damien of Molokai, St. Maria Goretti, Blessed Bartolo Longo, Irishman Matt Talbot and Immaculee Ilibagiza. It also includes prayer and discussion questions integral to growth as a disciple of Jesus Christ.” (This paperback has declarations of "Nihil Obstat" and "Imprimatur.") 
Information about the author is available at
