Free Apologetics E-Book Library


Welcome to the Truthbomb Apologetics Free Online E-book Library. From time to time, while researching a given topic, I run across a free e-book online. I decided to put them all together in one collection. I will be adding to it as I find other books. If you know of a great, free e-book that would go nicely in the collection, please share it with us.

I hope you find these books helpful in your search for truth; and hey, they are free! I love free books!

I appreciate the encouragement!

Bruce said...

Wow, I was considering buying "Jesus: a biblical defense of His deity", but I probably would have bought "Was Christ God?" anyway, now I will buy the latter and I can still read the former here! And the pens'ees! And other stuff! Thank you!

Chad said...

Bruce,

You are welcome! I'm glad that you have found it helpful. Saving money is good! :-)

Godspeed

Totally awesome! I've been wanting to get a copy of Vox Day's The Irrational Atheist. Greatly appreciated, I'll be passing the list.

Also, for those unfamiliar with the Christian Ethernet Library it has a ton of old stuff:

My book on the DaVinci Code in Spanish is available as a free PDF, email me so I can send it to you. (faithdefenders@hotmail.com)

Hopefully it will help Spanish believers defend the trustworthiness of the Bible and the Deity of Jesus.

Thank you very much for these free ebooks. God bless you..

Steve Husting said...

This is a wonderful list of apologetics resources. I'll put a link to this site in my apologetics iPhone app, Doubt Busters!

pds said...

Dr Stuart Hackett's The Resurrection of Theism - the book that inspired WLC - is free here:

http://www.cheapersunglasses.com/docs/stuarthackett.html

Hackett's approach is to lay out a theory of knowledge call rational empiricism and to show that all other epistemologies are either incoherent or borrow from this model. He then uses this model of knowledge to build a case for theism.

I'd say is was an intermediate advanced book; suited to those who have some epistemology under their belt already or are looking for a mind expanding challenge!

Eric G said...

Thank you for sharing. I love free resources. Really helpful.

Chad said...

Hello Steve,

Thank you for the "heads-up!" I featured the book here.

Hi,
It seems that the link to "Fifty Reasons Why Jesus Came to Die" redirect us to another John Piper's book, "The Future of Justification: A Response to N.T. Wright".

Please try again if you can and confirm the link takes you to the correct e-book.

Thank you,
