A number of websites have church writings scanned from old books dating back hundreds of years. These include CCEL, Archive.org, Gutenberg.org, and Google.com/books. I have included on this page some of those public domain documents, but updated to modern English, usually with a table of contents, footnotes, and corrections (wrong Scriptural citation, misspellings, etc.). So you'll be able to read Bunyan, Owen, and others without straining to understand their words. They are modernized, not paraphrased. I've tried to retain the original flavor of the various authors so you'll hear "their voice," not mine. Enjoy.

Note: Kindle formats are a challenge; they seldom come out in the intended format - just so you know. The azw3 format is better than mobi, but still leaves a lot to be desired. Indents are one issue; graphics are another.

I suppose that CS Lewis is a modern "classic" but I cannot include his works on this website, because they are still copyrighted by his family. You will find "The Little Red Lizard" on the Arts Page, because it's only an excerpt from his book, The Great Divorce; and I've made some comments on it, making it "educational." But because CS Lewis is very popular, and although I immensely enjoy his articles and books, it ought to be said that his theology is questionable at times. He readily admitted that he was not a theologian. That being true, it would be a  mistake to use his works as a basis for doctrinal instruction. They are not metaphors or modern parables; they are not analogies of biblical truth. They are Christianesque fiction and generalized defenses of spirituality, which perhaps present the Christian Faith as reasonable to non-Christians. But they are not doctrinal in any sense, nor did he intend them to be. Here are two helpful articles about his theology:
