Charles Spurgeon Collection Shipping Soon

Charles Spurgeon Collection (86 Vols.)

Charles Spurgeon was an astonishing figure. He wrote commentaries, set up orphanages, founded a college, and preached and led Bible studies at his church every week. In fact, by the time Spurgeon turned twenty, he had already preached more than 500 sermons, and was well on his way to becoming one of the church’s most famous preachers and one of Christianity’s most prolific writers. He also found the time to read nearly a book every day, and read John Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress over 100 times during his ministry. It’s no wonder John Piper said “the word ‘indefatigable’ was created for people like Charles Spurgeon.”

Spurgeon is well-known for his sermons, available in The Complete Spurgeon Sermon Collection, but Spurgeon also wrote dozens of books, edited a magazine, compiled sermons notes, wrote numerous letters, and penned a 4-volume autobiography—and that’s just the start. The 86-volume Charles Spurgeon Collection assembles all of his books, commentaries, letters, and other materials into one giant collection.

This week we’re putting the finishing touches on the 86-volume Charles Spurgeon Collection. This project has been a major undertaking around here for the past few months, so we’re excited that it’s going to be shipping soon. This means that you still have a few more days to get your Pre-Pub order in. As always, the price jumps up after we ship, so don’t miss out on this chance to add a massive amount of Spurgeon material to your library.

Here’s a summary of some of the notable books in this collection:

  • The Treasury of David, a detailed commentary on the Psalms
  • Lectures to My Students, which includes Spurgeon’s best-selling Commenting and Commentaries
  • The Sword and the Trowel, a magazine edited by Spurgeon and published between 1865 and 1884
  • A 4-volume autobiography, the first and most detailed account of Spurgeon’s life and ministry
  • A collection of letters and correspondence
  • Dozens of volumes on preaching, prayer, evangelism, and more—head on over to the product page to see the complete list.

To whet your appetite, here’s a screenshot of the first part of Spurgeon’s notes on Matthew 4:19 from My Sermon Notes.

Greek in a Week

Greek in a Week

If you’re like many of our users, you use Logos Bible Software to aid your study of the Greek language. In fact, over the years, our grammars, lexicons, and other Greek texts and tools have been some of our bestselling books.

A few months ago, we began partnering with John Schwandt to offer an intensive course on the Greek language called Greek in a Week. Professor Schwandt is the Senior Fellow of Classical Languages at New St. Andrews College and brings years of teaching and research experience on New Testament Greek. He’s also the voice behind the Greek Audio New Testament.

We’ve already had successful Greek in a Week courses in Houston, Baltimore, and Santa Barbara. The upcoming course in the San Francisco/Oakland area runs from October 8–10, and is now open for pre-registration.

Greek in a Week equips you to study the New Testament in the original language and to get the most out of your Bible language aids. The course also teaches you the logic and structure of the language and helps you take your exegesis to a deeper level. In fact, in just a few days, you can learn the basics of New Testament Greek and begin translating the book of 1 John.

If you’re a pastor who wants to brush up on the Greek skills you learned in seminary, Greek in a Week is the perfect refresher course. It will also provide an advantage to students who want to jumpstart their understanding of the language in preparation for Greek coursework in seminary. You’ll also learn how to use Logos Bible Software to enhance and enrich your study of the Greek New Testament.

The cost of the course goes up as it gets closer, which means your registration is heavily discounted when you sign up early. That means if you want to qualify for the pre-registration price for the San Francisco/Oakland course, you need to register soon.

A few weeks before the course begins, your card will be charged, and Professor Schwandt will contact everyone in the course to work out a location in the Bay Area that’s convenient.

Head on over to the Greek in a Week page to learn more about the course and to read testimonials from previous students. If you live in the Bay Area, you’ll also want to pre-register soon to take advantage of the lowest price.

Introducing . . . Kent

Introducing . . . Kent

I’m Kent Hendricks, and I work in the marketing department here at Logos, where I’m responsible for marketing Pre-Pubs. I spend most of my days in the office researching books and authors, writing and editing copy, and corresponding with bloggers, Logos users, authors, and just about anyone I can find to help us promote the books we sell. In fact, many of you have probably already heard from me in the form of Last Chance NewsWires announcing soon-to-be-shipping Pre-Pubs. Now, I’ll be contributing regularly to the blog as well, so I hope you look forward to hearing more from me. :)


My wife, Shelly, and I moved back to northwest Washington two years ago after spending six years in Grand Rapids, Michigan at Calvin College and Calvin Theological Seminary, where I got an undergraduate degree in Religion and English, took lots of Greek and linguistics classes, and almost finished an M.Div. (I’m still working on that last one.)


Since I can’t resist a little name dropping, some major works by a couple of my former professors are currently on Pre-Pub—Richard Muller’s Post-Reformation Reformed Dogmatics and Herman Bavinck’s Reformed Dogmatics. True, Herman Bavinck isn’t a professor at Calvin Seminary, but John Bolt is, and he’s the editor of the new English translation of RD. There are also some other great books in the works that I can’t tell you about yet, but keep checking the Pre-Pub page to find out when they’re available!
