Johnathan and David discuss some of their favorite online resources.

1. The Wesley Center Online (free)
- A database of Wesleyan and holiness materials created by Northwest Nazarene University.
- I like it because it has some hard-to-get resources.
2. Christian Classics Ethereal Library (CCEL.org)
- Includes Schaff’s 38-volume Church Father’s series
- Calvin’s Commentaries
- Works of Arminius (3 Vol. Nichols ed.)
- No page numbers
3. NewAdvent.org (free)
- Similar to CCEL
- More readable in my opinion
4. The Revised Common Lectionary (lectionary.library.vanderbilt.edu)
5. Papalencyclicals.net (free)
- Every important document ever put out by the Roman Catholic Church
- The search feature is difficult to use because titles are often only in Latin.
6. Perlego.com ($18/month)
- This would be in my top two or three if it still had the daily subscription option.
- Tons of contemporary books.
7. Wesley Scholar (wesleyscholar.com) (free)
- An independent collection of Wesleyan-Methodist and early Christian works.
- Contains articles as well as original works.

- Contains some free material
- Contains PhD dissertations
- Used to be able to download as PDFs.
- Gives all the information about a book including the nearest library or where to get it online.

- Christian and secular books
- Several different formats including actual facsimiles of pages
