Christian Classics Ethereal Library emails:


Harry Plantinga has received numerous emails from around the world regarding the Christian Classics Ethereal Library. Here are a few of the comments:

The ethereal library is AWESOME. Many of these books are hard to get here in Norway (a little spot just below the North Pole). Don't you ever take it off the Internet.

Today I have encountered perhaps the single-most important site on the Internet. It is with exuberant joy that I send you my thanks for this collection. I have sought such a historical library and now have been blessed with this treasure. Thank you.

I would begin by thanking you and all others involved for the joy that CCEL has afforded me in the search for my Father's treasures. I had not realized how much I was enjoying it until I was unable to call it up. The void left by the absence made me aware of what I was missing in a way I would never have appreciated without the absence. .I would express my thanks again for a beautiful webpage.

I would like to confirm the receipt of the box with the CD-ROMs that you sent to me. I do not really know what kind of words to use in order to express my thanks and deep gratitude. That work that was put into these CD-ROMs is immense and only a strong Christian missionary and witnessing motivation could produce it. Thank you from the bottom of my heart both on behalf of the Ecumenical Institute of Bossey (Switzerland), but also on behalf of the numerous theological institutions from Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union where I will send these CD-ROMs.

I acknowledge with thanks the receipt of you CD-ROM of CCEL and am extremely happy to see it. It is more than I expected and prayed for. I praise God for your labor in the vineyard of our beloved Lord and Savior. I assure you that the material received through CCEL will be used only for the glory of God.

I have been using and enjoying the CCEL for a long time. I love it! As a blind person, I am always on the lookout for online sources of literature. CCEL has helped me immeasurably in my Christian growth. I am an American but have been living in Vienna, Austria, for more than 23 years. It's nice to know that no matter where I am, I can utilize your wonderful resource.

I am an Austrian theology student and I was very happy to find your page on the web, especially St. Thomas Aquinas' Summa Theologica. I like it very much, but my Latin is not the best. You have given me wonderful help to understand my favorite philosopher.
