How You Can Set the Price for the Charles Spurgeon Sermon Collection

How much is a set of Spurgeon’s sermons worth to you?

Before you answer that question, here are a few things to keep in mind:

  1. Spurgeon preached at an astonishing pace—three sermons every week for several years. Before he turned 20, Spurgeon preached more than 500 sermons. When, when he moved to the Park Street Chapel, his sermons were published each week and sold more than 25,000 copies. According to Christian History, Spurgeon preached to more than 10 million people during his lifetime. He often preached to thousands of people at a time—without a microphone. By the time of his death, Spurgeon had preached over 3,500 sermons.
  2. Spurgeon had a profound influence on an entire generation. Dwight Moody met with Spurgeon during a trip to England in 1875. During his visit, Spurgeon, Moody refined his preaching skills before returning to America to become one of the century’s most famous evangelists. And Moody wasn’t the only one: David Livingston (of “Doctor Livingston, I presume” fame) carried copies of Spurgeon’s sermons with him on his travels. After Livingston’s death, his daughter found the note “Very good. D.L.” written on the front of one of Spurgeon’s sermons.
  3. Because Spurgeon preached from the entire Bible, his sermons nearly provide a comprehensive commentary on the entire Bible. That’s 63 volumes, and tens of thousands of pages, straight from Spurgeon.
  4. With the Logos edition, you could search all of Spurgeon’s sermons for the text or topic you’re preaching on. Scripture references would be linked to your Bible, and the entire set will integrate with the rest of your library.

So what would owning the Logos edition of Spurgeon’s sermons be worth to you? Ultimately, you’re the best person to judge. That’s why we decided to let you help select the price.

How It Works

Simply go to the product page and select the amount you’d be willing to pay. Maybe it’s a lot. Maybe it’s a little. Whatever the amount—choose how much Spurgeon’s sermons are worth to you. It’s that simple.

I’ve Selected My Price. What Happens Next?

If enough people select the same price as you to cover product costs, you’ll get it for your price. A higher selected price means fewer people are needed to put the project into production.

If the final price ends up being lower than what you selected, you’ll get it at the lower price. But if final price is higher than what you selected, you’ll miss out. The bottom line: the higher you bid, the more likely you are to get it at or below your price.

As soon as there are enough bids to cover production costs, we’ll send you an email notifying you whether your bid was successful or not. If your bid was successful, then it will turn into a Pre-Pub order. We won’t charge your card until the product ships, and we’ll let you know a few weeks before that happens.

For now, all you need to do is tell us how much owning the Logos edition of Spurgeon’s Sermons is worth to you. Head to the product page to place your bid!

Do you already own the Ages edition of The Complete Spurgeon Sermon Collection (63 vols.) that was built years ago for Libronix? If so, then you will receive this updated collection for free, and the files will automatically download when it is complete.

New Perspective for Your Hebrew Scripture Study

One way to add fresh perspective and insight to your Hebrew Bible study is to incorporate Jewish scholarship. Resources like the Jewish Publication Society’s Jewish Women Collection can help you experience the Scriptures that Jesus studied and memorized in a whole new light.

Save on Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s Works for a Limited Time

Who stands fast? Only the man whose final standard is not his reason, his principles, his conscience, his freedom, or his virtue, but who is ready to sacrifice all this when he is called to obedient and responsible action in faith and in exclusive allegiance to God—the responsible man, who tries to make his whole life an answer to the call of God.”—Dietrich Bonhoeffer

The definitive edition of Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s works and letters is on Pre-Pub. This 15-volume collection features Bonhoeffer’s significant contributions to Christology and Christian ethics, biographical information, and correspondence. The Pre-Pub price of $339.95 is a limited-time savings—the price goes up Wednesday, April 11.

It is difficult to separate Bonhoeffer’s legacy from the turbulent times that birthed his theology. A vehement anti-fascist, he became a double-agent in the German military intelligence organization Abwehr. Bonhoeffer, after wrestling with the ethical implications, joined a small resistance group within the Abwehr with the intention to assassinate Hitler.

Bonhoeffer was arrested on April 6, 1943. Although his custody wasn’t in connection to any assassination attempts, Hitler eventually uncovered Bonhoeffer’s part as an Abwehr conspirator. Bonhoeffer was led to the scaffold in the Flossenbürg concentration camp on April 9, 1945—only days before the American liberation of the camp. Bonhoeffer’s last reported words were, “This is the end . . . for me, the beginning of life.”

The Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s Works collection includes Letters and Papers from Prison, a brilliant collection of correspondence that reveals the spiritual foundation alluded to in Bonhoeffer’s theological writings. Whether discussing the evolution of his theological thought, the difficulties of life in prison, or everyday trivialities, Bonhoeffer’s letters are marked by a steadfast devotion to God—a devotion which influenced all who came in contact with him.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s Works goes up in price on April 11, so don’t wait. Order your copy today to get this limited-time discount!

Logos to Translate Works of Thomas Aquinas into English for the First Time!

Thomas Aquinas (1225–1274) is certainly one of the most important theologians in history. His immense corpus of work covers every aspect of Christian life and doctrine, penetrating to the core of mankind’s relationship with God. Despite its undeniable importance, much of Aquinas’ work remains available only in Latin. That’s about to change. Logos is going to translate his Commentary on the Sentences of Peter Lombard, Commentary on the Prophet Isaiah, and Commentary on the Prophet Jeremiah into English.

Aquinas wrote three major works of theology. His Summa Theologica (1265–1274) and Summa Contra Gentiles (1264?) have been available in English for almost a century. But his third major piece, his Commentary on the Sentences of Peter Lombard, remains untranslated. Aquinas wrote the Commentary on the Sentences in his twenties as a brand new professor at the University of Paris. The commentary influenced his contemporaries and remains heavily cited by modern theologians. In it, Aquinas broached topics that would dominate his later works, such as the relationship between Aristotelian philosophy and theology. It also offers Aquinas’ most sustained treatments of ecclesiology and sacramental theology.

Translating these works is an extensive, expensive project; that’s where the Logos Pre-Pub system comes in. We can bring together thousands of people from around the world to finally make these resources available in English. This translation will be a major event in Thomist studies, and everyone who places a pre-order is a direct part of it.

Logos’ translations of the commentaries on Jeremiah and Isaiah will likewise have a large impact on the study of Aquinas’ thought. Aquinas is gaining attention as more scholars realize that his thought was built on a profoundly scriptural foundation. Indeed, some scholars have suggested that our whole interpretation of Thomas’ work must be re-visited in light of his biblical commentaries. Logos’ translations of the commentaries of Jeremiah and Isaiah will be a huge contribution to these exciting developments.

Thomas Aquinas’ thought is remarkably valuable, and it is amazing that after 750 years so much of it remains inaccessible to the majority of English speakers. Logos is remedying this. You can help! Place your Pre-Pub orders today.
