I like books from long ago.  They seem to be more
untouched by modern ideas and waywardness...though of course we know false teachers did exist hundreds of years ago.

Monergism.com has 2 free ebooks today (and I am not sure for how much longer)...They are

The Substance of the Christian Religion by William Ames and 109 Sermons and Other Works by J.C. Ryle.  J.C. Ryle is one of my favorite authors, but I am not very familiar with William Ames.

From Monergism.com:

"J.C. Ryle was a prolific writer, vigorous preacher, faithful pastor, husband of three wives, [widowed three times: Matilda died in 1847, Jessie died in 1860, Henrietta died in 1889] and the father to five children [one with Matilta and four with Jessie]. He was thoroughly evangelical in his doctrine and uncompromising in his Biblical principles. Today’s pastor can learn several lessons from Ryle. .First, Ryle’s life reminds pastors to attend to their family duties. He also reminds Christians that sometimes it is necessary to swim against the tide. Ryle was a passionate Evangelical at a time when Evangelical theology was not popular in the Anglican church. During his lifetime, Ryle contended with John Henry Newman’s Tractarian Movement, and the growing infiltration of liberal German theology. He did so with unflinching loyalty to the first principles of Scripture — justification by faith alone, substitutionary atonement, the doctrine of the Trinity, and the importance of preaching.In 1880, after 38 years in Pastoral ministry in rural England, at age 64, he became the first Anglican bishop of Liverpool. He retired in 1900 at age 83 and died later the same year at the age of 84."
