Christian Libraries Containing Books Available On-line or for Download
Classic Christian Ethereal Library (www.ccel.org) One of the biggest Christian libraries on-line for Christian classics. Every text can be read on-line, downloaded as simple text or PDF (but not all PDFs are free). CCEL is perfect for Christian self-education and study but doesn't contain much for Biblical exegesis by newer Bible scientists. First check this library if you search for a book. You can find almost every Christian classic here.
Online Christian Library (www.ntslibrary.com) A big library of Christian resources sponsored by the Northwestern Theological Seminary with a growing number of resources. Special interest is the PDF download section which is found on http://www.ntslibrary.com/Christian-PDF-Books.htm.
www.GospelPedlar.com Another Christian on-line library which contains whole books or excerpts by whole books. Now the library has been re-designed by subjects. The difference from many other libraries is that it contains excerpts from new books and not just classics that are out of copyright. This is a must see.
