We are pleased to advise our readers that we have now commenced listing the Baptist works that we have come across. Unfortunately, there are so many to list that we have created an initial list to which we shall be adding more and more as time progresses.
We trust that our readers appetites will be whetted and that they will return regularly to find what other works have been added.
We have also added more Spurgeon works on the Spurgeon page, including the Sword and Trowel magazines, and the entire New Park Street Pulipit and Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit series.

We are delighted to announce that Google have at last scanned a couple of extremely imporant Baptist historical works, which are very hard to secure on the second hand and antiquarian market.

We have just added a download link to this work which has now been scanned and made available by Google Books. You will find it here.
Spurgeon wrote of this work, “Abundance of matter, pithily expressed. Symson is among the oldest and rarest of the English divines.”

We have added a random quote generator to this blog which will produce random quotes from a substantial database of Puritan Gems. We shall be adding more and more quotes with time. In the meantime we trust that you will enjoy and benefit from this new feature.

What a surprise to see our creation of “Puritan portraits” now appearing on Wikipedia under their article on the Puritans!! Not sure how this sits comfortably with their copyright policy!
A bit rich when one editor has taken it upon himself to remove all links to our website from this and other pages related to the Puritans - and this was done on the basis that the links represent spamming, supposedly adding nothing of intrinsic value to the pages devoted to the puritans- even though we are indexing and making available the works of the puritans!

Time now toggles with GMT.

We have just added Spurgeon’s daily devotions to our website. This operates on a rotation basis so that each day the appropriate reading appears on the page. The readings are for morning and evening - in other words the relevant reading will be shown on the page depending on the time of day that the page is accessed. Currently there is a slight problem in that we are using a US based server and we have not yet figured out how to toggle the time depending on GMT. We are working on this..
In the meantime, we hope that our readers will appreciate and benefit from this new addition.

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.
