Free Orthodox books online
« on: August 28, 2013, 10:40:11 PM »
I just came accross a book called The Orthodox Church in the East in the eighteenth century by George Williams c1868.
I am sure there are other such books available online for free. This book I found under google books.

Lots.
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

I only found a handful of free ones. I am not just talking about books you. Can read online for free but specifically the ebooks. Which you can read on ereaders , ipads, iphone, etc.  If there aren, t that many such many books then maybe we can have them posted here for everyone's convenience.

azbyka.ru provides free liturgical resources in Slavonic, however the directions are in Russian. If you or someone whom you know understands Russian, this is a valuable resource.

Download responsibly. ;)

Nothing comes up :(

Since my last visit (when I raided the library), there has been an added app on the page that even tripped off my antivirus. Try putting the address (holytrinitymission.org) into Google and following the link to the school when the results come up. If that doesn't work either, shoot me a PM.

Unless I can't navigate that site, those are neither ebooks nor free.
