B. B. Warfield Is Coming to Libronix

Yesterday afternoon a long-awaited B. B. Warfield Collection appeared on Pre-Pub. If you haven’t noticed yet, we’ve been systematically looking at some of the gaps in what we offer from some of the most important figures in church history and doing our best to fill them. The ever important Works of John Owen and Works of Jonathan Edwards were put on Pre-Pub in March, and both are now under development. (If you missed them, it’s not too late to pre-order them at the reduced Pre-Pub price.) With enough pre-orders the B. B. Warfield Collection will soon join them.

Our collection includes the standard 10-volume Works of Benjamin B. Warfield, along with 10 other titles. Here’s the complete list:

The Works of Benjamin B. Warfield

  • Vol. 1: Revelation and Inspiration
  • Vol. 2: Biblical Doctrines
  • Vol. 3: Christology
  • Vol. 4: Studies in Tertullian and Augustine
  • Vol. 5: Calvin and Calvinism
  • Vol. 6: The Westminster Assembly at Work
  • Vol. 7: Perfectionism, Part 1
  • Vol. 8: Perfectionism, Part 2
  • Vol. 9: Studies in Theology
  • Vol. 10: Critical Reviews

Other Titles

  • Are They Few that Be Saved?
  • The Canon of the New Testament: How and When Formed
  • Counterfeit Miracles
  • Faith and Life
  • An Introduction to the Textual Criticism of the New Testament
  • The Lord of Glory
  • The Plan of Salvation
  • The Power of God unto Salvation
  • The Right of Systematic Theology
  • The Saviour of the World

That’s more than 7,100 pages of Warfield’s most significant writings. And, of course, Bible references and many other important citations of additional resources in Libronix will be linked, making the study of Warfield more advanced than ever before.

D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones said of Warfield, "His mind was so clear and his literary style so chaste and lucid that it is a real joy to read his works and one derives pleasure and profit at the same time."

    Thanks for the warfield collection I have waited patiently for this and requested for this.
    I was wondering if you would consider adding this article by warfield(The Emotional Life of Our Lord) to the collection. Thanks

  2. Hi, Ted,
    Thanks for the suggestion.
    We have a B. B. Warfield Collection Upgrade (6 Vols.) on our wish list, which would include Person and Work of Christ (which contains “The Emotional Life of Our Lord”), the Selected Shorter Writings, and the last remaining titles do no appear in this collection. It would nicely complement this 20 vol. collection we are now offering and make for a pretty exhaustive collection of Warfield’s writings. But the upgrade collection is partly contingent on how well this collection does.

  3. Ted Hans says:

    Thanks for your response Phil very encouraging on the Warfield front.
    just a reminder now that the Works of John Owen is under development on prepub – perhaps Owen’s Hebrews commentary is one step closer to being offered by you guys at logos :-)

  4. Thanks for the reminder on Owen, Ted. Stay tuned!

    No disrespect, because I know that many are excited about Edwards, Owens, and Warfield collections … including not long ago the Piper collection and sermons. But could Logos go after materials on a bit wider spectrum? Meaning these huge collections of materials?
    I actually welcome everything in Logos. But when it comes to study, I like studying all things and all views.
    Kudos for the Barth collection. I know many theology friends who might just give Logos a try just because of this collection.
    But where is the C. S. Lewis collection? One of the most influential persons in theology in our era … but silently absent in my favorite Bible program.
    What of more Martyn Lloyd-Jones? Like his Roman series?
    What of Eugene Peterson’s writings?
    What of more from J.B. Torrance? Or T.F. Torrance?
    What of …?
    Is it publishers that are the problem in this? Or does Logos not think anyone is interested in such things? (and yes, I’ve requested some of these to Logos)
    Could Logos publish a website which lists the more popular requests along with possible information about each (e.g., “publisher has denied our use”, or “we are obtaining rights” …).
    Wouldn’t it help if a publisher denies Logos and actually has actual users of the program pressure the companies to allow Logos to their materials?

  6. Thanks for the suggestions, Brandon. We value them very highly. We totally agree with your perspective of having a wide range of resources available.
    There are three different categories of books we’d like to publish: (1) those that are in the public domain, (2) those that are copyrighted, and (3) those whose copyright status is unknown. The first group is often the easiest to do, assuming we can locate the texts. The second is a mixed bag; some publishers are very happy to have their books made available in Libronix, while others are hesitant for a variety of reasons. The third group is the most difficult. There is a massive number of books whose copyright status is unknown. Tracking these down is very difficult, so they usually take the back seat to the first and second categories.
    I can’t say for sure which groups your suggestions fall into, but be assured that we do value your input.
    Your idea of a book suggestion page on the website is a good one and has come up before. We don’t have any immediate plans to do something like this, largely due to the amount of work it would require, but perhaps one day.
    Putting pressure on print publishers is usually not a good idea. Kindly expressing your interest is fine for most publishers, but getting big groups together to “pressure” publishers can often prove counterproductive.

  7. This is exciting, a huge thanks to Logos for offering this collection.
    By the way, some of us are of the opinion that your more recently offered book collections such as Owen, Edwards, Warfield, etc. don’t so much fill in the systematic theology “gaps” in our libraries but rather make up the pillars…
    God bless!

  8. Sorry for jumping on an old post, but with all the excitement about new collections, I hope you’re not going to forget poor old John Calvin. As one of the earliest Logos books, his commentaries are in a poor state. Strange colours, no page numbers and inadequate tagging abound. Surely he deserves better?
