Welcome to the Library!


This website is a library website to read and download free online Christian books for Bible Study. I am a missionary and Pastor in Mexico City, Mexico since 1986, and I use these works for my own study and sermon preparation, and I am making these works available for the general public.

I would like to just give you a “heads up” on this website. I format public domain books for the free Bible program, “theWord“, and the works I am placing here for the most part are available as downloads on my theWord Module Library-Depository site, Some pages (“books”) on are being built by my own studies, and so they won’t get posted on until they are in a more “formal” stage. Also, at this point in my life, I do not have time to copy over every book on on this present site, so I am selectively putting the ones that for my own studies are more beneficial. I am a pastor and missionary, and the things I preach on in my church are the things that I want on this site, basically background books on these themes.

My preference is doctrinally oriented stuff that has a lot of Scripture notations. This is the “type” of book that I like. Sometimes some devotional books also interest me. Although I have my own beliefs, I post what I am studying and looking at, even though the author or his doctrinal position or his affiliations are not what I believe in personally. I have even some Catholic works on my websites, and that is because I feel (1) sometimes people from other philosophical framesets have sometime interesting to add to a topic, and their thoughts (right or wrong) provoke me to mediate even deeper on my own views. (2) Many times in these things, you cannot correctly and expertly analyze an erroneous position without going to direct sources, so I have those type of works also on my website.

So some works just will not show up here. If you have requests, you can send them to me at davidcox (at) (dot) mx. Exchange the (at) for @ and the (dot) for a period in that email address (no spaces within the email address.

There is a RSS feed available if you know how to use that. Continue reading

NPNF1-02. St. Augustin’s City of God and Christian Doctrine
NPNF1-02. St. Augustine’s City of God and Christian Doctrine

by Philip Schaff


This (888 page) pdf is Augustine’s work on the City of God which explains his views of God’s people versus the pagan world, mixing his views of predestination and election into this.


The City of God, is a book of Christian philosophy written in Latin by Augustine of Hippo in the early 5th century AD. The book was in response to allegations that Christianity brought about the decline of Rome and is considered one of Augustine’s most important works, standing alongside The Confessions, The Enchiridion, On Christian Doctrine and On the Trinity. As a work of one of the most influential Church Fathers, The City of God is a cornerstone of Western thought, expounding on many profound questions of theology, such as the suffering of the righteous, the existence of evil, the conflict between free will and divine omniscience, and the doctrine of original sin.
