Greetings all - bear with me on this - I have a little explaining to do so you understand where I am coming from. (If you have any questions, let me know and post them below.)

Logos has a great (free version) search engine that searches personal docx files. You can upload your own "Personal Books" into Logos to search anything you enter all at one time. In other words, I wanted to sit down at my computer, and say "Computer, search for John 13:44-45 in my whole library." Well, in order to do that, you have to "buy" all the sets you want in your Logos software package. Logos sells everything that is out in the public domain, and more. But, you have "re-purchase" your whole library all over again in e-form. Thier pitch is - yes, its expensive, but you are paying for the ability to SEARCH your library in one shot. I wasn't about to spend $30,000 again to do that. So, I looked into how the personal books option works, and found that I could upload a docx file into Logos, give it bibliographic info, and then it is just part of my "library" in that regard. I made my own personal book. If you are connected to the internet, then all your personal books are backed up when you sync.

After 4 months of scanning and creating my docx files, I uploaded them all into Logos, and waaaaaa-la! My whole library is at my fingertips. It only cost me my time. And...it was so worth it.

Now, keep in mind - this took me a good 4 months. and I'm still not done. I have a few non-public domain sets that I need to personally scan and add. And there are still a few other sets that I still need to run through my formatting to use in Logos that are public domain. (I use the CRUZ scanner, which is a dream - my first set that I scanned in was Turretin's 3 volume - took me 20 minutes).

So, I thought to myself, the guys and gals on the PB would probably like this. My good brother Scott said, "This is a no brainer, and you should offer it to everyone." So, I'm offering it to everyone.

Now keep in mind, you can do what I did and take the time to do it personally. However, I have a few extras that I added into each document I created.

I created 4 packs at Puritan Publications that run between 65-70 megs each. (They are listed below with their respective contents).

The downloads contains docx files, which are all public domain books which have been scanned in and turned into usable word files. These can be uploaded in other software programs that allow you to create your own personal book library for purposes of searching and research. These are not scanned images. They are converted Word files. That means they are far from perfect. They have not been edited for typos of any kind. 80% of the scanned pages are excellent. Some are less so, and others may be very poor. That is due to the actual printed copy of the book these files were made from in its initial scan before OCR took place.

Here is a formatting help that I employed - they have all been updated in some basic formatting. Extra lines have been removed, paragraphs are not crowded, extra spaces in sentences have been removed, hyphenation has been removed, and such. I ran these files through various scripts in Word that I created which “cleaned them up” in this way because I wanted to maximize the search. If there was a "hyp-hen" in a word, that would mess up my search. So all those are gone.

These files represent a lot of extra hours of work, but uploading them into a program that allows you to search them all instantaneously is a huge blessing.

So, to be clear - these are all public domain works. They have been cleaned up to a certain extent for formatting only. They have not been edited at the content level at all. My thought was, if I can search my whole library in an instant, at the very least, I can pull the book of my shelf if I need to read something that might be too disfigured due to the scanning of an old book. So it is awesome to be able to take these, search them, and get, generally, 80-85% return on whatever I am searching.

For example, I might search for John 3:16. Some of the pages might have it like this: JOhn 3:i6. The scan was not so great on the old book, so there are variations that way. But, most of the books are really well done, so I was pleased.

There are over 400 titles and sets. If you buy them electronically, at even 95-99% edited and such, you can do the math. A $250 set of Owen's works is still $250 electronically, or more. If you want to spend $30,000 to build your library go for it! But, the 4 packs below are $50 a piece and each of them house 70-80 sets and works. And you don't really have to do much work except upload them to your software program to use.

Here is the link to all 4 packs. Below are the contents. There are also random screen shots at the links of a page in a given set.

Ask Mr. Religion

Flatly Unflappable
Very nice collection. I will spread the word at other forums I frequent.

Logos folks have already complained about my post at their discussion site given that they sell some of these works. Oh, well.
