Three months ago, Logos introduced the Spurgeon Commentary: Galatians, a unique project in which we organized and edited the writings of Charles Spurgeon, the great British Baptist preacher, into commentary format. That resource met with such a positive response that it went into development almost immediately. Seeing that there is demand for such a resource, we now present nine more volumes in the series: the Spurgeon Commentary Collection: New Testament Letters. Like the Galatians volume, each new book in this series will:
- Show you what Spurgeon had to say about a verse and particular words within it
- Highlight Spurgeon’s illustrations of truths found within the text, categorizing them according to theme so you can find them more easily using your Logos library
- Draw out Spurgeon’s application-oriented content, offering ideas for how to apply these concepts in your own life and share them with your congregation
- Provide the sources used, so you can dig deeper into the original context
Phil Johnson, an authority on Spurgeon and the curator of The Spurgeon Archive, graciously contributed a foreword for the series. He concluded it in this way:
Why didn’t someone do this long ago? This is an invaluable reference work, made all the more useful by its compatibility with Logos Bible Software. I can’t imagine preparing a sermon without checking to see what Spurgeon might have said about my passage. The Spurgeon Commentary Series has simplified that step. When the series is complete, it will surely be the Logos resource I turn to most often.
The Spurgeon Commentary Collection: New Testament Letters is already under development, so pre-order it today!
