Can I buy any of these materials as books?
Thanks for your interest. All the studies at ichthys.com are free and (relatively easily) downloadable. I hope, for instance, that you will find the Adobe Acrobat format very much like a book, whether you print it out, access it off-line on your computer, or load into an "e-book" reader. Other options are available as well: see Download Instructions.
But the materials proved at ICHTHYS are not for sale. The reason for this is that it is the objective of this ministry to make as much of God's truth as widely available as possible at no cost. This is very important to me. So while I understand that this policy (of deliberately resisting the production of books in a commercial fashion) has been the cause of some frustration, ICHTHYS users can be sure that what they are getting is completely on a grace basis and at the same time completely free of commercial influence of any kind. It is true that ICHTHYS is a "dot.com", but there is a story here too. Over the long run, other designations (dot.org, for example) are likely to find themselves subject to any number of government restrictions and stipulations. Commercial web sites, on the other hand, are likely to remain accountable only for commercial transactions. Since ICHTHYS has not and will never have any commercial transactions, the level of expected interference in making God's Word available free of charge to all comers is expected to remain at a minimum (that, at any rate, is my hope).
If you are experiencing any difficulty whatsoever in downloading and/or off-printing of files or if for any reason you are unable to do so, please do let me know and I will see what I can do to assist you in this matter.
