Ruffin,the Lutheran minister who wrote this book, was recently on EWTN. Interesting that a Lutheran comes to his defense, huh?

Great book, which i read many times when i was going thru tough time w/foster kids.

True story: once i was sitting in our bedroom, with my wife, and my daughter walked in - first my wife, then my daughter, then myself noticed a sweet tobacco smell - subtle - coming and going...where did it come from? My daughter was really freaked out. I happened to be reading this biography at the time and opened at random and read that a visitation by Padre Pio was sometimes accompanied by a sweet tobacco smell.
