Christian Classics Ethereal Library
main website

A fantastic collection of Classic free Christian books that is regularly updated. If yoiu like books, you’ll like Christian Classics Ethereal Library

Pilgrims Progress
Christian Classics Ethereal Library is a fantastic site if you like reading Christian literature, it could keep you going for years. It is stuffed to bursting point with classic Christian writing from people such as Jonathan Edwards, John Bunyan, G.K.Cherston and countless more.

Ease of use and navigation

It is very easy to find what you want…if you know what you are looking for! Otherwise, it can be slightly overwhelming. However, there is a recommended page which suggest ten of the best (per CCEL’s opinion) books. Also, if you sign up to the newsletter you get a little review on one book each month.Maybe people could post comments onto this post to say what is good to read? To kick you off I suggest Brother Lawrence’s “The Practice of the Presence of God”, which is always a challenging read!

Quite a few of the books can be downloaded for free in pdf format, whilst some can only be viewed in HTML format (although of course you can then download the text).

Presentation

The site has been recently revamped and is now much easier to navigate.

Summary

This is one of my favourite Christian websites. It has stacks of great Christian writing. Many of the books may be old but they are timeless and can really enrich your life. Go and have a look now!

Strengths

  • Loads of books
  • Some very high quality Christian classics

Weaknesses

  • Can be difficult to know which books to go for

  3. Please send us some Christian resources to enhance our ministry here in New Zealand. We are a small congregation that started last year. Therefore, we would like our new members to benefit from Christian resources that you have.

  4. Even though a homeowner may love a jungle in the backyard, those who might be
    buying a first home only see the potential for backbreaking labor or gardener costs to make room for
    a lawn. For example, if your goods are Shipping to England, make sure that the shipping company has all
    the required documents as per the requirements of England customs.

    For this purpose, you should immediately consult the international
    cargo and freight moving company.

  5. Many adult ADHD patients suffer from forgetfulness and since they administer the
    medications themselves, they often forget that they have already ingested
    their dose for the day thereby ingesting another set which can cause overdosing.
    On the other hand some adults with ADHD have the opposite problem.
    His girlfriend complained that he interrupted their conversations
    and that he always put his needs first from; He could never finish a task that wasn’t engrossing for him.

  6. Many adult ADHD patients suffer from forgetfulness and since they administer the medications themselves, they often forget that they have already ingested their dose for the day thereby ingesting another
    set which can cause overdosing. We must not take for granted that we have the chance to decide what we want in life, who we want
    to become and where and how we want to spend every day of our lives.
    Even if in your divine wisdom you cannot see anything good coming out of the choices your adult child is making, they are not
    your decisions to make.
