    Does anyone here know if there are any plans to publish this?

    Hi haven't found any online, except his 2 volume "Body of Divinity"

    I'd love to see BoT publish a nice hardback edition of his complete works. I'm surprised it hasn't been published already, as Watson is one of the most readable and pithy of the Puritans.

    When ever volume of a writer is as high quality as Watson- it is MUCH more lucrative to publish in individual volumes than as a set.

    A 4 volume set would go for.... $60-75??

    How about each volume individually at $10- $15 each for hardcovers??

    Cha-ching!

    Now, I am not judging motives, and I am not saying that profits are ungodly ('cause they aren't); I just think that with Watson- individual volumes are the way to make the bacon.

    Cool. It looks like they have some stuff on audio.

    The complete works of Thomas Watson have never been published. There are still a few works that have not been done since the 17th century.

    Also, it would be difficult since no one publisher has the rights to all of Watson's works that have been published. Banner of Truth has done quite a few, Soli Deo Gloria has done several, Christian Focus has done some...

    Interesting. I didn't think about that.

    There is thinking going on that Logos 4 will only read v4 PBBs, hence you would have to redo all existing PBBs to work with Logos 4. I read this on stilltruth.com

    I really hope this is not the case.

    The gentleman that has converted the PBB's is working on figuring out how to convert them to v4 format.

    Fred: I know you probably talk to some of the guys at Logos. Are they planning on supporting PBB format in the future because what little I have read is that they're trying to get away from that format. It would be nice if they came up with a tool that converted PBB works.
