Can I get the spiritual e-books in internet?

Hello! Friends I have a keen interest towards spiritual activities. I think that spiritualism is the best way to get linked with God. Over the past few days I have been looking for some spiritual e-books on Christianity reflecting the concept of the Bible. Where I can get these spiritual e-books?

Or you could look in the wiki:

I get most of my spiritual e-texts (not always in a format you could reasonably call "ebook") at sacred-texts.com. However, they are mostly not remotely Christian.

The Christian Classics Etheral Library. http://www.ccel.org is a great place for ebooks on Christianity. There are a variety of formats and a ton of content. They do a lot of their own scanning and formatting so there is stuff there that isn't anywhere else. Tehre is some modern stuff there, but mostly public domain older books.

Yes, CCEL is very comprehensive.

Also try the Jacques Maritain centre:

Here's a collection of the Early Church Fathers:

And Religion Online, for a useful collection of texts:

Zondervan (a large Christian publisher) sells eBooks on their website, besides Symtio which Dr. Drib referred you to already. They seem to be a new company and don't have as many eBooks as audiobooks right now, but I'm sure their selection will continue to grow. They offer eBooks in the following formats: .ePub, .lit, .prc & .pdf.

I would really like to get some eBooks including the NKJV of the Bible published by Thomas Nelson. I had read that they have 316 titles for the Kindle, but I have the Sony PRS-700. After writing to the publisher this was the reply I received this morning. Very encouraging!!

Quote:
Thank you so much for your interest in Thomas Nelson ebooks. The quick
answer is yes we will be making our titles available in other ebook
formats beyond Kindle. We are working with Sony to make that possible
in the coming months. Also, we will be adding other formats, including
ePub. Should you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate
to let us know.

Best Regards,
Bob

The NKJV is a re-write of the KJV, in more modern English. It's still under copyright.

Yes, I have the KJV thanks to someone on this forum, Deputy-Dawg, I believe. I've purchased the NIV, but the NKJV is my preferred version and it's under copyright with Nelson Publishers. That's why I wrote to them. You know I'm not beyond begging for the books I want!

So is the original King James version in the UK. It's protected by a perpetual Crown Copyright.

No one uses the original KJV of the Bible any longer. It was made in the 17th Century before the modern alphabet existed. (v and u were reversed, word spellings changed, etc.) What everyone refers to is the 18th century Publisher updates that corrected the minor changes. The last such change was made in 1769. Three revisions were made prior to that one, 1762, 1638, 1629. The one you are referring to was 1611.

Talking about spiritual books, is The Richard Dawkins Delusion worth reading? I'm an atheist, and I've read The God Delusion, so I'd like to read what appears to be the rebuttal.

Edit : Just realise the original poster is banned, at least I don't feel so bad about taking the thread off topic.

The God Delusion isn't available as an electronic book, except on Kindle. Is it possible to use Kindle books without a Kindle?
