From the Director
Do you ever tune in to listener-supported radio? If so, you are familiar with the annual fund drives and you probably contribute every so often. Think of this as our spring fund drive combined with our best sale ever.
As you may know, one of the primary ways we keep the CCEL operating is through user subscriptions. Subscriptions also have several benefits for users:
Throughout March, we are also going to give free CCEL CDs and audio books with memberships (while supplies last; please allow 2 weeks for delivery).
So with a $24.95 subscription or a $99.95 subscription, you receive an audio book download (up to a $26.98 value), the NIV for CCEL passage display, all CCEL download formats, and a CCEL ad-free environment.
In addition, you get a free CCEL CD ($35 or $95 value). There has never been a better time to subscribe, and there may never be in the future!

If you've ever wanted to read a passage of scripture side-by-side with a relevant commentary, the Bible Browser may be just what you're looking for. It can be reached from the home page with a link on the left.
When you first open the Bible Browser, you will be presented with two panes: scripture on the left, and commentaries on the right. To get started, select your desired passage from the drop-down lists near the top of the page. The panes will automatically update to show content for the selected passage. Find your preferred scripture translation on the left, and a suitable commentary on the right, and you're all set.
Reading the CCEL in the country
I am disabled and unable to leave home much. We have only one vehicle and live in the country. The only viable resource I have for Christian books is from the Internet. The CCEL was the first and remains the largest contributor to my research and general edification reading.
I am unable to contribute anything at this time, which I regret. However, I thank and encourage everyone who does contribute for what you do. You have blessed me almost every day for the past 5 years with the books I've read from the CCEL.
How have you used the CCEL to deepen your research, discover new voices, and enliven your faith? Submit a usage testimonial.
