Free download and more: Orthodoxy (by Chesterton)

Christian Audio .com has a monthly free download. Some good ones crop up every now and then. The free downloads stay in your account as if you had purchased them, so it makes for a nice library. Downloads are usually available both as one file and as one file per chapter.

Christian Audio also has a biannual $7.49 sale, where many books are available for $7.49 or $4.98. The current shopping season is one of these times.

Here is my library, showing most of their free downloads over a few years, to give you a feel for what they’ve offered in the past. I do not claim to have listened to even all the good ones. (And I deny having listened to any of the ones I shouldn’t have credited with a download counter.)

If you were going to provide a real service, you’d add links to each work on christianaudio.com:wink: (Mostly kidding.)

Seriously, though, I really appreciate christianaudio.com. And I’ve found that much of the stuff listed there is also available through hoopla and Libby (free audio book rentals through your local library. )

Thanks for the recommendation. I’m really sad I missed getting some of those. Why didn’t you let us know about this sooner? :slight_smile:

Seriously though, who would listen to all of the Institutes? And even more, who would read it for a recording? Yikes! Grateful somebody did, but that’s some commitment.
