We have noticed a great many broken links for Google books. When we have tried to locate the books we have noticed an error message that the books is not on the server. Appears that Google have either changed the location of many of their books or, for reasons known only to Google, removed them altogether.
We shall try our utmost to restore the links where the works still exist, but since this is affecting 1 in 4 Google books it is going to be a time consuming exercise.
If our readers are so inclined they can assist us by reporting any broken links and also reporting the links to moved works when they come across them. The reason we are asking for such help is that we have encountered a problem in our search for some of these works in that the Google Books search engine kicks us out treating our searches as spam bots!
Please bear with us while we try to rectify matters.

The website has been updated for the remainder of the New Testament books, and so most of the links to available works are now on the website. We have however discovered a few more links to works and these will be updated over the next week or so, Lord willing.

Charles Haddon Spurgeon
We’ve created this blog to address current theological issues and to keep you informed of all the changes and upcoming improvements to the Book-Academy site.
For those not familiar with our website, it was created to reproduce Spurgeon’s work “Commenting and Commentaries”, but with a big difference viz. that, where they exist, we have provided FREE download links to the electronic versions of the commentaries to which Spurgeon refers and/or recommends. For the most part these commentaries have not been reprinted in a very long time, if at all, and they command a handsome price on the secondhand and antiquarian book market. But now they can be yours for no cost- they need not occupy shelf space, but can reside on your computer and most of the works are searchable, or you can find searchable versions at the source destination, which we have not tried to conceal.
Our prayer is that many Christians will avail themselves of these precious helps and that God may even raise up other men like Spurgeon - deeply versed in the Bible and taught of the Holy Ghost - men with a passion for souls and a rigid adherence to Biblical orthodoxy, be they opposed by friends or foes.
Please do browse our website because we have added many links to Spurgeon’s own works, and very many others to Puritan works. In fact our idea for a Puritans page was considered so good that a leading US Reformed website promptly plagiarised, without any acknowledgement, all the links from an earlier version of our website and created their own version of our Puritans page! Enough said, but do check out the original “Puritan Library“ on our website.
We wish every blessing to our readers and trust that you will also book mark this blog and visit us frequently. We would love to hear from you. So, please do feel free to add your comments, be they encouraging or disparaging!
