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!)

Ashamed of the Gospel? “’I am not ashamed of the Gospel.’ So the Apostle affirms, as he looks toward Rome. What is it about this Gospel of God, and of His Son, which gives occasion for such a word? Why do we find, not here only, but elsewhere in the New Testament, this contemplated possibility that the Christian may be ashamed of his creed, and of his Lord?... What is there about this revelation of the heart of Eternal Love, this record of a Life equally divine and human, of a Death as majestic as it is infinitely pathetic, and then of a Resurrection out of death, to occasion shame? Why, in view of this, should man be shy to avow his faith, and to let it be known that this is all in all to him, his life, his peace, his strength, his surpassing interest and occupation?” -- Handley Moule (1814-1920), from The Epistle of St. Paul to the Romans, pg. 35-36  Related Bible Verse:  “For I am not ashamed of the gospel,  because it is the power of God  that brings salvation to everyone who believes.” (Romans 1:16) 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://www.classicchristianlibrary.com/library/ex pos_bible/Expos-v34-Romans.pdf If you would like to be sent the Christian Quote of the Week each week, via email, please send an email request to ssper@ClassicChristianLibrary.com To review past Christian Quotes of the Week click here.
