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