Jimmie Beller Memorial eLibrary

Established August 17, 2015

Jimmie Beller

Let me quickly tell you about a man named Jimmie Beller.  From the first day that I stepped into the building of the congregation here in McLoud, Jimmie was one of my best friends and biggest supporters.  He always had a smile on his face, was always happy to see you, and was a great encouragement.  To all visitors, Jimmie would smile and say, “Welcome home.”

He was also fighting against cancer.

The cancer Jimmie had was incurable, and I can’t tell you how many experimental treatments they tried on him to keep it at bay.  But in 2015, Jimmie went on to his eternal reward. He had such an impact on our lives that there is rarely a day goes by that we don’t think about and miss our friend and brother Jimmie.

He discovered that I run the Gravel Hill church of Christ website, and absolutely loved the sheer amount of free material that is available there.  In fact, he loved it so much that he allowed me to scan several books from his own library to put online.  One of those books was very brittle, and I told him that I couldn’t scan it because it would destroy the book.  His response was classic Jimmie Beller.  With a huge smile on his face, he said: “So, you’d destroy one book, and thousands of people can read it.  I don’t see the problem.”

After his passing, his entire library was donated to me with the hope that Jimmie’s desire of spreading useful books to as many people as possible would continue.  That is the purpose of the Jimmie Beller Memorial eLibrary.

Lord willing, this free eLibrary will continue to grow as we make more of his books accessible to anyone who wants to download them.

  1. One of my good friends, Dr. Jessie E. Mills, Jr., wanted me to find some biographies of Thomas and Alexander Campbell which tells about their years in Scotland before coming to America. I found the two documents (Seven Lights and Alexander’s visit to Scotland) on this website, but wondered if there are any others that you might know about, which you can send to me?
