Great News! The DVD set is ready!

Andrew Myers writes of the set, " I ... highly recommend "The Spurgeon Collection," which is a valuable resource for all students of God's Word. To have access to the commentaries that Spurgeon reviewed, many of Spurgeon's own works, and a compendium of classic Puritan literature at one's fingertips is an opportunity not to be neglected. Tolle lege!

The set comprises The Puritan Library, Spurgeon's own works (which include in its entirety The Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit set and many volumes of the Sword and Trowel Magazine) with some other works he recommended, Commenting and Commentaries, with digital works of the works where ever we have been able to locate them, and a folder containing the Bibles that we have highlighted in our blog recently.

The set represents a priceless collection of books that would otherwise cost thousands of pounds, not to speak of the shelf space they would occupy!

We have also used the latest technology and our readers should be aware that the products are best viewed using the latest version of Adobe reader.

FREE SPURGEON RECOMMENDED COMMENTARIES!!


About this website

Ever since C. H. Spurgeon published his catalogue “Commenting and Commentaries” in 1876 it has been, for theological students in the reformed tradition at least, a standard reference tool in the choice of commentaries.

Sadly however, the large established book publishers have over the last 15 to 20 years moved away from printing the variety of older reformed commentaries which they once used to and although smaller publishers have tried to fill the gap, their valiant efforts still leave us with huge gaps.

A few years ago some internet companies, principally GOOGLE and MICROSOFT commenced the process of producing digital versions of old and antiquarian books. Of course since the fair proportion of books printed in Victorian and pre-Victorian times were of a religious character, we find that they have digitized many of the commentaries which were recommended by Spurgeon.
 
We were pleasantly surprised to find just how many of the works recommended by Spurgeon, which are very difficult, if not impossible to find in the second hand and antiquarian book market, now exist in digital format. And that gave rise to the idea of this website.

We have therefore reproduced Spurgeon’s “Commenting and Commentaries”, and then provided links to the digital versions where we know of their existence. Most of the digital versions exist as “pdf” files and one would therefore need to download and install the free Adobe Acrobat Reader to read these files. If you do not have Adobe Reader you can download the latest reader free of charge from Adobe

Some files exist as “html” pages only. These are from sites which have reproduced the text of the work as a web page.

User options

Generally speaking, Microsoft works can be downloaded and viewed on one's computer before saving BUT we only provide a "save download" option for Google books. The "save download" option is not possible for websites where the page is only in html format.

All the books with links are, as far as we are aware, in the public domain and there is therefore NO CHARGE for downloading them.

Please note that some of the files are rather large and may take a while to load/download depending on the speed of your internet connection.

Please also note that sometimes the scans are poor, but still legible. This applies in the main to Google digital works. In the case of some Google scanned works, we have noticed that there are scanning errors which prevent the print on certain pages from being read, and that Google have yet to rectify such errors. Generally speaking the scanning by Microsoft is of a better quality and that is why their digital works are as much larger in size.
