Free PDF's of spiritual classics

What a great idea for a site: Free Catholic eBooks. You can download all sorts of great works of spiritual literature whose copyrights have expired, and it's all free. Though this is a Catholic site, many of these books will appeal to Christians of all denominations. Some examples:

  • Story of a Soul by St. Threrese of Lisieux
  • The Everlasting Man by G.K. Chesterton
  • St. Thomas Aquinas by G.K. Chesterton
  • The Practice of the Presence of God by Br. Lawrence
  • The Way of Perfection by St. Teresa of Avila
  • Summa Theologica by St. Thomas Aquinas
  • The Imitation of Christ by Thomas a Kempis [I heard somewhere that this is the most popular Christian book in history after the Bible]

And many, many more. See the rest here. What a fantastic idea for a site!

(NOTE: Some of these PDF's are large and may give your browser problems. I recommend right-clicking on the image of the book and choosing "Save Link As" and save it directly to your hard drive rather than trying to view it in your browser first.)

Hi, this is Dave, the admin of FreeCatholicEBooks.com. The site is a favorite project of mine and I really appreciate the kind words. If you (or anybody else reading) finds more free ebooks (free of copyright or the author is willing to grant permission) then please let me know. My email is admin@freecatholicebooks.com.

Thanks again and God Bless,
