Classic Christian Library

A library of the best Christian works,

over the centuries.

Here we collect the best in Christian writing online, all as free PDF eBook files. We provide eBooks of all types of Christian writing (Bible commentaries, systematic theologies, devotional works, topical studies, etc.), from many periods of Christian history (the early Church fathers, Puritans, Reformed, etc.). With the help of projects such as the Google Library Project, and the Internet Archive, it has become possible for anyone with a computer, and an Internet connection to have access to an excellent Christian library free of charge, that just 15 or so years ago would have cost tens of thousands of dollars. To save you the time of digging through the Google and Internet Archive web sites, we are collecting these works here. This is a curated site, that contains works that are well-written, by writers who respect the divine inspiration of the Bible. If there is a public domain work that you think belongs on this site, please email me at ssper@ClassicChristianLibrary.com, and I will consider its inclusion. Also, if you find any broken links, please notify me.  Enjoy!

Their expositions can never be a substitute for our own meditations, but as water poured down a dry pump often sets it to work to bring up water of its own, so suggestive reading sets the mind in motion on its own account." -- Charles Spurgeon, Commenting and Commentaries

Christian Quote of the Week (or so!)

The Constant Ministry of God’s Word “The grace of God, in the heart of man, is a tender plant in a strange unkindly soil; and therefore cannot well prosper and grow without much care and pains, and that of a skilful hand, and which hath the art of cherishing it: for this end hath God given the constant ministry of the word to his church, not only for the first work of conversion, but also for confirming and increasing his grace in the hearts of his children.” -- Robert Leighton (1611-1684) Related Bible Verse:  “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work” (2 Timothy 3:16-17).   Note: The work from which the above quote was taken, Practical Commentary on 1st Peter, by Robert Leighton, is available as a PDF eBook at the Classic Christian Library, free of charge at: http://ClassicChristianLibrary.com/librar y/leighton_robert/Leighton-1Pet-pt1.pdf If you would like to be sent updated Christian Quotes, via email, please send an email request to ssper@ClassicChristianLibrary.com To review past Christian Quotes of the Week click here.

Christian Quote of the Week (or so!)

All We Have is from God “We have our all from the hand of God, and are entrusted with it as stewards, and consequently are accountable. We should have this thought as a golden thread running through all the comforts of every day, ‘These are God’s gifts’: every bit we eat, and every drop we drink, is his mercy; every breath we draw, and every step we take, is his mercy: this will keep us continually waiting upon him, and will put a double sweetness into all our enjoyments. God will have his mercies taken fresh from his compassions, which for this reason are said to be new every morning; and therefore it is not once a-week that we are to wait upon him, as people go to market to buy provisions for the whole week, but we must wait on him every day, and all the day, as those that live from hand to mouth, and yet live very easy.” -- Matthew Henry (1662-1714), from A Method for Prayer (1710) Related Bible Verse “He makes grass grow for the cattle,  and plants for people to cultivate—  bringing forth food from the earth: wine that gladdens human hearts, oil  to make their faces shine, and bread that sustains their hearts” (Ps. 104:14-15) Note: The work from which the above quote was taken is available as a PDF eBook at the Classic Christian Library, free of charge at: http://classicchristianlibrary.com/library/henry_matthew/Henry- Method_for_Prayer.pdf If you would like to be sent updated Christian Quotes, via email, please send an email request to ssper@ClassicChristianLibrary.com To review past Christian Quotes of the Week click here.
