Item printed from The Restored Church of God (rcg.org)
The Library section organizes our hundreds of books, booklets, articles, Q&As, Bible Course lessons, brochures and magazines in a clear and easy to access manner. Items can be accessed by format (books, booklets, articles, etc.) or by subject. Additional filters and sorting options make it very easy to find what you are looking for—as well as other related items.
About Us contains everything you would want to know about The Restored Church of God.
The News tab automatically indicates when we post news items or the site is updated (for registered users).
My Bookshelf is one of our most exciting new features. This private, personal bookshelf allows you to save items for future reading or ordering, organize items you want to read, and even keep track of how far you have read in individual pieces of literature—a custom feature found on no other website!
The Requests tab is our version of a shopping cart found on many e-commerce websites. The difference is that all of our literature is free of charge and without further obligation. Select items you would like us to ship to your home, and order with just a few clicks. (We have made the process even faster for registered users.)
Find items by format (books, booklets, articles, etc.) or subject. Visitors can find similar items (and registered users can save items to “My Bookshelf”).
When browsing the library (either by subject or format), you can further narrow your results by changing how items are displayed—by changing sorting, display format or both.
On the default “List” view (and in the menu on “Grid” view), all available items can be added to your Request queue without leaving the library.
Further, registered users can save items of interest to their bookshelf to read or order later.
When searching for a question, topic or term, the search box will automatically suggest helpful searches and questions as you are typing. Search will also indicate popular and recommended searches to help you get started.
Many of the features found in the Library are also available on the search page.
No matter if you prefer to use a menu or search for a topic, the new website will help you find what you are looking for faster. And once you have found an item My Bookshelf allows you to read items now, or save them on your bookshelf for later.
Incorporating the design methodology of “responsive design,” rcg.org automatically adjusts to the type of device accessing it. This means that whether you visit our site on your smartphone, tablet or computer, all content and features are available.

In addition to reading literature on our website or requesting a hardcopy, you can download most items for offline reading in Adobe PDF, Kindle/Mobi or ePub format. You may also print any items and they will be specially-formatted to look great.
When you click on a scripture, the Bible (King James translation) is conveniently docked at the bottom of your browser. It can be minimized, resized, or even popped-out into a new window.
Furthermore, you can now jump directly to passages by clicking on the verse and typing it in.
Your bookshelf allows you to keep a personal catalog of items that you would like to save, read or order now or in the future. Your “bookshelf” shows how far you have gotten in literature, with an easy to understand percent “Completed” bar. Once you have completed an item, click “Done Reading” to transfer the item to your read literature list.
