Free Books

If you’ve never heard of the Christian Classics Ethereal Library you are missing out on a truly great, FREE, resource.

The Christian Classics Ethereal Library (CCEL) seeks to build up the church by making classic Christian literature widely available and promoting its use for edification and study by interested Christians, seekers and scholars. The CCEL accomplishes this by selecting, collecting, distributing, and promoting valuable literature through the World Wide Web and other media.

The CCEL is truly amazing as they have hundreds of classics all digitally tagged and available to read online and/or download in numerous formats. Every time I go to the site I am amazed at the efforts of the project… with a few clicks of the mouse I can have access to the church fathers, both well known and obscure.

This is a great site that everyone should have bookmark.

CCEL is a great resource. I really appreciate the multiple file formats they offer. If you use their resources a lot, I’d encourage you to make a donation to help fund their on-going work. If you’re into free online books, I’d encourage you to check out this post on the Biblical Studies & Technological Tools Blog.

Happy Reading!
