    I've found that there are some folks on ebay who are selling Thomas Aquinas Summa Theologica and Phillip Schaff's The Early Church Fathers for very, very low price........
    Now, they are on CD in PDF format, but hey, it's still cheap. I just find it interesting that you can get several dozen volumes of Christian literature for the price of lunch. Last time I'd checked, there were hardly anyone buying them, so I'm sure that if that trend continues, they won't be there forever. Just search for "church fathers" or "aquinas" on ebay.

    (btw, this is not me selling these..........I just thought it to be a good deal and wanted to pass it along to folks............I apologize if it violates the rules.........)

    I'm not familiar with these listings, but many such listings found on ebay are not legal.

    Of course a good rule of thumb is, if its too good to be true, it most likely is.

    You might search online. I think I've seen Shaff and would suspect both are available free.

    Schaff's Early Church Fathers was written sometime in the 1800s, and is in the public domain. Aquinas was written 750 years ago, so he's definitely in the public domain. So it's entirely legal.
