Classic Christian Library

A library of the best Christian works,

over the centuries.

Here we plan to collect the best in Christian writing online, all as free PDF files (eBooks, if you will). Our plan is to 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! Updates Notifications: If you want to be notified about updates/additions/changes to this Web site, send a request to:  ssper@ClassicChristianLibrary.com The Classic Christian Library is curated by Scripture Studies (A journal dedicated to the exposition of the Bible). Visit Scripture Studies here, for more free Bible study resources: http://www.ScriptureStudies.com "Divines who have studied the Scriptures have left us great stores of holy thought which we do well to use. 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!)

New Life: Necessary “The doctrines of Christianity, however important and essential, are not mere theories, but great practical realities, which can only have a saving efficacy by being received into the soul.  A mere speculative belief in them, if unaccompanied by a spiritual influence upon us, is of no consequence.  We cannot be Christians without a new life.”  -- Paton Gloag (1823-1906), from Practical Christianity (1866)  Related Bible Verse: " We were therefore buried with Christ through baptism into death  in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead  through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life" (Romans 6:4)  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/libr ary/gloag_paton/Gloag- Practical_Christianity.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.
