We have the one book of his from PG, but there are some others:

The Way of Holiness (1902) https://archive.org/details/wayofholiness00bren
The Soul-Winner's Secret (1900) https://archive.org/details/soulwinnerssecre00bren

Helps to Holiness, Love Slaves and Ancient Prophets seem to have links but are only available as downloads:

EDIT: This one is also now recorded for LV - Heart Talks on Holiness (1900) https://archive.org/details/hearttalksonholi00bren

I'm still looking for more PD versions of Brengle's books. Would this do? http://www.salvationfactory.org/the-brengle-collection/

They have made notes on some of the texts which have been altered. They do not appear to claim a new copyright. If we could potentially use this, I could get in touch with them about it.

And while I'm asking - are those Archive downloads OK to use?

I think the Archive ones are OK to use. The one that's "just a download" is in .epub format; I don't know how many people can use that. I know I can't. :)

The other website, I don't feel comfortable using. They're not scans of the original books, and we cannot tell how they've been modified from the original.

Here's a link which says it is made from a "non copyright copy" but then it says it has "all rights reserved" on it:

http://wesley.nnu.edu/wesleyctr/books/0301-0400/HDM0348.PDF

It's held by a library which has placed it in the PD, but it is an electronic copy of a CD. The library has it listed as PD, as the book was published in 1896, but I can't tell if "HDM" is still a going concern or even a legitimate copyright holder.

There is a huge kindle file on Archive, but I'm not sure how user-friendly that would be:
