Pastor Rob Ventura Reviews and Recommends the Puritan Hard Drive
Puritan Hard Drive
(PHD) is the single largest one-time digital publishing event of Puritan, Reformation, Reformed Baptist, Reformed and Biblical Presbyterian and Covenanter resources ever produced.
Combine all of this with the very useful PHD software and there are many reasons to rejoice for such an unprecedented Puritan and Reformed Bible study tool.
As a Reformed Baptist pastor, it is also interesting to note, that the Puritan Hard Drive contains 2,208 Reformed Baptist books, MP3s and videos. Spurgeon, Bunyan, Pink, Fuller, Gill, Griswold, Pollard, Bennett, along with many others can be found here. The PHD also contains a very large number of for Reformed Presbyterian resources (books, MP3s, videos) and Reformed commentaries, including a number of very rare and valuable commentaries and commentary sets that most people are not likely to have access to outside the PHD. All of these resources are easy to access by just clicking on the "Select Category from List" button on the main search screen.
Additionally, the affordable price for both the downloadable and USB Puritan Hard Drive versions (Windows and Mac), makes this a must have Reformed resource for all of God's people. Moreover, Still Water Revival Books' (SWRB, who are the creators of this program) also allows every family member in the same house to legally use the Puritan Hard Drive on all their devices. Thus, whole families can be blessed together, growing in holiness by drinking deeply from the wells of truth set forth by the best Christian teachers throughout history.
Imagine having access to over 12,500 Puritan and Reformed resources right at your fingertips. Imagine being able to instantly search out what the Puritans have said concerning various Bible topics with the click of a button. Imagine the time you would save studying the Bible, preparing sermons and Bible studies, doing writing projects. Imagine the depth of knowledge and insight one would gain from those great giants in the faith who have gone before us. The Puritan Hard Drive offers all this, and much more.
For example, though there are many ways to slice and dice the information, the Puritan Hard Drive contains (using the easy-to-use and powerful proprietary software) a Master Full Text Search feature which is particularly useful. Using this search you can quickly locate every word, phrase, or Bible verse (or verses), across all the searchable text on the PHD. This kind of research power has never before been available to Christians, especially as it pertains to such a large group of the best Puritan and Reformed resources from throughout history right up to our day, including many rare Puritan and Reformed classics that are unavailable elsewhere or that would cost large sums of money to obtain. With the click of a button, a massive number of search results come to you alphabetically by title (with the author included) so you can quickly scan down the list of titles and authors to find what you want. When you want to explore deeper into a book you simply click the icon to the left of the title and you will see all your search terms, with each search term in the context of one line in that book.This helps you to quickly determine if the results in a given book provide the exact information you are seeking. This feature also allows you to cover a vast amount of material in a short amount time. When you find precisely what you are looking for, just click on that particular line and you are instantly taken to the right book, already opened to the right page, and your search result is highlighted so you can see it on the page immediately.
Depending on what you are searching for, results can come in the hundreds to hundreds of thousands. In fact, you can accomplish thousands of hours of research in moments with the Puritan Hard Drive. This not only gets you to the precise truth you are seeking, but it also does it faster than ever before possible. What's more, most of this kind of research would be humanly impossible outside the Puritan Hard Drive, as the PHD can dig deeper and faster than thousands of people, and can complete these searches in a small amount of time. For instance, as noted on Still Waters Revival Books' Web page, a search for the word "prayer" brings up 97,170 search results in 1,378 documents. Being able to search so quickly and accurately, through many of the best Christian resources from throughout history, allows for the most extensive and deepest research ever available on any topic you want.
Also, the Manual for the Master Full Text Search feature on the PHD, which is entitled "How to Find Specific Words and Phrases in Searchable Books.pdf", contains a number of screen shots that are easy-to-follow and it will help you use this wonderful feature to its full potential. When you see what the Master Full Text Search feature does, I think you will be very pleased that such great research capabilities have been placed in your hands.
Of course, the Master Full Text Search is just scratching the surface concerning what the Puritan Hard Drive can do. You can even add your own notes to every resource and the Puritan Hard Drive will save them for you, then you can use a special search to find specific notes you made or you can search for your own notes mixing and matching many other search criteria. Also, many search features can be mixed and matched to produce whatever level of detail you want. From the beginner, to the power user, the PHD provides you with broad or exact results and everything in between, as you have total control over the complete research process with pinpoint accuracy.
Furthermore, included is a very helpful PDF manual that can walk you through each feature. This manual is filled with clearly written instructions and screenshots showing you exactly where to move your mouse to make the best use of all the features on the PHD. Even better than that, SWRB provides tutorial videos at PuritanDownloads.com that show and tell you exactly how to get the most out of your Puritan Hard Drive. For these tutorial videos just click on the link "ALL PURITAN HARD DRIVE VIDEOS" (without the quotation marks) in the left column at PuritanDownloads.com. The first two videos on this page are overviews of the Puritan Hard Drive and all the videos that follow are tutorial videos. All these videos are YouTube videos so it is easy to pause and rewind each video as you learn. You can even run the videos with the Puritan Hard Drive opened, listen to a point where the video shows you how to do something, pause the video, do the action stated on the PHD, and repeat, until, you master all the features at your command. The PHD was designed to allow you to mix and match the capabilities of many of the study tools it contains, to obtain the best research results possible, and following these videos is the best (and fastest) way to make optimal use of the PHD.
Concerning the creating of the PHD, Dr. Reg Barrow (the president of SWRB) mentioned to me that he saw the Lord answer many prayers, over the 26 years it took to produce the product. Knowing that the Lord so closely watched over all aspects of the development of this product has given the brothers at SWRB an earnest desire to share the treasures of our Lord's truth found on the PHD. This is why SWRB has implemented a monthly payment plan for those who cannot afford the PHD in one payment. Just contact them, using the contact information at PuritanDownloads.com and let them know your situation and they will do their best to help you obtain this resource at a price you can afford.
A host of others have also endorsed the Puritan Hard Drive. Among them are Paul Washer, Dr. Joel Beeke, Dr. Voddie Baucham, Richard Bennett, Paul Barnes, Greg Price, Dr. Matthew McMahon, Jim Dodson, Dr. Steven Dilday, Brian Schwertley, and John Hendryx (Monergism.com). If you would like to see more reviews about the Puritan Hard Drive, including reviews by everyone mentioned above, just click on the link "Puritan Hard Drive Reviews" (without the quotation marks) near the top of the left column at PuritanDownloads.com.
In sum, the Puritan Hard Drive is an amazing resource; I wish I had known about it sooner. I strongly commend it to you for your own spiritual growth and as a blessing for your entire family. To me, it is one of the best Christian study tools available on the market today.

Far From Rome Near To God: Testimonies Of 50 Converted Catholic Priests By Richard Bennett, Charles Chiniquy, Bartholomew Brewer and 47 Others (Banner of Truth Paperback)
"This book contains the moving testimonies of fifty priests who found their way, by the grace of God, out of the labyrinth of Roman Catholic theology and practice into the light of the gospel of Christ. But this is not a narrowly polemical work, nor is its relevance limited to the ongoing controversy between Rome and the churches of the Reformation. The love and concern felt by the former priests for those they left behind, and their fervent desire that they too should experience the joy and peace of salvation in Christ are seen throughout. The wider relevance of the experiences described will also be felt in many contexts remote from Roman Catholicism where human pride and presumption have erected rival sources of authority between people and the Word of God, so obscuring the way of salvation by grace alone, through faith alone, and in Christ alone." - Banner of Truth

PASTOR PAUL WASHER REVIEWS AND RECOMMENDS THE PURITAN HARD DRIVE
"With the Puritan Hard Drive I can now carry one of the largest Puritan and Reformed libraries in my pocket.
No matter where I am, as long as there is some form of power source to operate a computer, I have access to some of the best Puritan and Reformed literature available.
The Puritan Hard Drive is a tremendous blessing. I travel frequently to many parts of the globe. The Puritan Hard Drive allows me to continue my studies on the road with the same depth as when I am seated in my study at home.
The wonderful portability of this massive Puritan library (and remarkable research software) makes the Puritan Hard Drive ideal for missionaries, students, or anyone who needs instant access to the best Reformation study materials in a variety of locations.
There is much more to the Puritan Hard Drive than just convenience, portability and the exceptional quality and extraordinary number of Reformation resources it includes. Even if a minister owned the largest printed Puritan library in the world, he would not be able to properly research the material. However, the KnowledgeBase software on the Puritan Hard Drive provides an effective road map to access the material in ways that are easy-to-use, organized and highly productive. With the click of a button, you can easily do ten hours worth of research in just seconds!
Having the Puritan Hard Drive is like owning the largest Puritan and Reformed Library in the world along with a full time research assistant with his PhD in Puritan Studies from Oxford or Cambridge.
Imagine not only owning the largest Puritan and Reformed library, but having a full-time team of world-class research assistants at your beck and call.
The high level of educational and scholarly functionality, combined with a marvelous library of over 12,500 top Puritan and Reformed resources and an extremely reasonable price, really makes obtaining the Puritan Hard Drive a stewardship issue. It is almost as if God is saying, "Here is a tool that will lead you to more truth faster than ever before. Make the best possible use of it and bring much glory to My Name." (2 Timothy 2:15, Ephesians 5:16).
In the history of extra-biblical study and research tools there has never before been a resource as useful as the Puritan Hard Drive. The immense body of Reformation material (books, MP3s and videos) on the Puritan Hard Drive, along with the phenomenal proprietary software program that is included, makes the Puritan Hard Drive a valuable tool for Reformation in our day.
As a member of the HeartCry Missionary Society, I am witness to the great needs of Christians throughout the globe. Possibly the greatest need is sound Christian literature. Even though many Third World pastors read English, they have very few good books available to them. Even if we could afford to buy each indigenous minister a small library, the cost of shipping would be astronomical. With the Puritan Hard Drive we can provide pastors throughout the globe with one of the most complete Puritan and Reformed libraries at a fraction of the cost.
The Puritan Hard Drive is also ideal for situations where concealment is a priority in countries which are hostile to the Gospel. The Puritan Hard Drive is the most compact way to smuggle the light of over 12,500 Reformation resources (with powerful study software) into the spiritual darkness of those nations that are in most need of Gospel truth."

PASTOR GREG L. PRICE REVIEWS AND RECOMMENDS THE PURITAN HARD DRIVE
"I was one of those who had profited much from using the plethora of out-of-print Reformation materials offered by Still Waters Revival Books in the 62 CDs (Puritan CDs and Reformation CDs) for a number of years in my ministry -- works that I could only have found in select libraries (usually hundreds of miles away from my residence).
With the CDs, it took a little while to go to the index of each set, locate the documents I needed, and then find the correct CD. Of course, the time was always well spent in finding that particular document that I needed.
However, now that I have the Puritan Hard Drive, I am able to use my time much more efficiently in finding that particular document I need by quickly searching for it and finding it in a matter of seconds. It's like going from "dial up" to "high-speed" Internet!
And for all of those documents that have a font that are in block letters, I am able to simply cut and paste from the Puritan Hard Drive to my own document with ease.
Amazing surprises do come in small packages!
If you want to understand Reformed theology (i.e., the whole counsel of God) the Puritan Hard Drive is unsurpassed, outside the Bible itself. The First and Second Reformations gave us the most faithful Scriptural teaching and preaching since the time of the Apostles, and there is no other resource, outside Scripture itself, where you can find so much of God's truth as in the Puritan Hard Drive.
May the Lord continue to use this most profitable tool to promote a Third Reformation that encompasses the whole world (Isaiah 2:2-4)!"
- Greg L. Price (Author, Theologian, Covenanted Presbyterian Pastor, USA) Free online books, MP3s and videos by Greg Price and at Sermonaudio (SWRB considers Greg Price to be the most doctrinally sound preacher alive today, because he holds completely to the original Westminster Standards and all the biblical attainments of the Second or Covenanted Reformation.)
"Nevertheless, whereto we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same thing." - Philippians 3:16, which applies just as much to the family, the church and the state, as it does to the individual.
DR. JOEL BEEKE REVIEWS AND RECOMMENDS THE PURITAN HARD DRIVE
"The Puritan Hard Drive is a massive collection of primary Puritan resources, dozens of which are very hard to find anywhere else in the world.
Any lover of Puritan literature, which, more than any other body of literature ever written, powerfully expands our minds, convicts our consciences, allures our hearts, and moves our hands, will find a treasure trove here."
- Dr. Joel R. Beeke, President and Professor of Systematic Theology and Homiletics at Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary (click here for free MP3 seminary lectures and sermons by Dr. Beeke), Author of many important Reformed books (including the must read, Meet the Puritans: With A Guide to Modern Reprints), Editorial Director at Reformation Heritage Books, Editor of the Banner of Sovereign Grace Truth magazine and Pastor of Heritage Netherlands Reformed Congregation in Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA.
PASTOR BRAIN SCHWERTLEY REVIEWS AND RECOMMENDS THE PURITAN HARD DRIVE
"I would like to commend our brothers at Still Waters Revival Books for putting together the most complete collection of classic and rare Puritan and Covenanter works.
We should rejoice to see so many long out of print works finally available in an easily affordable and searchable format. No longer do we solely have to wait for expensive reprints to trickle out one at a time, year by year.
Every scholar, pastor, elder and professing Christian should take a great interest in the Puritan Hard Drive, for it sets before us the golden age of Protestant piety, preaching and scholarship. Everyone should benefit from the labors of these dear, departed saints."
- Pastor Brian Schwertley, Westminster Presbyterian Church (Waupaca County, Wisconsin), Author, Debater, Theologian, Conference Speaker, etc. Free MP3 sermons and free reformed books by Brian Schwertley are here, here, here and here.
JERRY JOHNSON REVIEWS AND RECOMMENDS THE PURITAN HARD DRIVE
"If you search the Internet for Reformed and Puritan works you will inevitably see a banner for a product called the Puritan Hard Drive. I often thought, "why would I want to purchase a hard drive when so much of the information (probably) contained on it could be easily found with a free search on the Internet?" Was I ever wrong!
The Puritan Hard Drive is the best resource money can buy.
It is easy, simple to use and the search feature cut down my time searching web pages that had absolutely nothing to do with the query I typed into the search engine. Not to mention a lot of the material is not accessible on the Internet.
To have so many books and articles at my fingers-tips is both truly amazing and a blessing. The Puritan Hard Drive just added thousands of volumes that I never could afford, nor store, to my library.
If you, like me, love the Puritans and Reformed theology, then the Puritan Hard Drive is simply a resource that you cannot live without."
- Jerry Johnson (President of Nicene Council, Seminary Professor, Author, Video Producer, etc.) See Amazing Grace: The History & Theology of Calvinism and The Myth of Neutrality (free video at Against the World).
PASTOR W. J. MENCAROW REVIEWS AND RECOMMENDS THE PURITAN HARD DRIVE
"The Puritan Hard Drive is the must have digital learning device for Puritan and Reformed studies.
Nothing like it has ever been available before!
If you don't have it you are almost certainly not learning as much as you could about God, or growing in grace at a pace that the Puritan Hard Drive, by the grace of God, facilitates.
If necessary, sell what you have (that does not draw you closer to God) to get the Puritan Hard Drive, and prayerfully use it until you become, by the Lord's sovereign and sanctifying grace, the most extraordinary Christian you can be (for His glory!)."
- W.J. Mencarow (Author, Pastor of Reformation Church, Boerne, Texas [San Antonio area] with free MP3 sermons on Sermonaudio,
Editor of The Paper Source Journal, etc. Pastor Mencarow has also been interviewed on numerous radio and TV programs (including "Good Morning America"), most networks and in major U.S. newspapers and magazines.
We also recommend that you listen to what may be the best audio commentary ever recorded, on the book of Revelation, by W.J. Mencarow (100+ free MP3s as of this writing), on Sermonaudio.
DR. C. MATTHEW McMAHON REVIEWS AND RECOMMENDS THE PURITAN HARD DRIVE
"In the history of the church's sanctification I don't believe there has been a more valuable extra-biblical resource and tool than the Puritan Hard Drive.
It holds some of the most priceless Reformed works of God-centered and Christ-glorifying truth that were ever penned.
Most students, ministers and scholars of the Bible would never personally acquire even half the literal number of books on the Puritan Hard Drive, much less the extreme caliber of its contents.
In God's providence modern day Christians have been chosen to be the recipients of both a theological and practical blessing. May we not squander it."
- Matthew McMahon, Ph.D., A Puritan's Mind (Pastor, Author, Seminary Professor, etc.) Over 200 free MP3s by Dr. McMahon are free online at Sermonaudio.
DR. VODDIE BAUCHAM REVIEWS AND RECOMMENDS THE PURITAN HARD DRIVE
I want you to know that I have enjoyed my Puritan Hard Drive immensely!
I simply could not have imagined such a resource before getting my hands on it!
To have that much information from a consistent, biblical, orthodox, and gospel-centered point of view is simply astonishing.
Anyone who admires the Puritans simply must have the Puritan Hard Drive.
From Pastors to Ph.D. candidates, there is simply nothing else out there that puts so much at your fingertips.
What an amazing tool for pastors... thank you for your work.
Soli Deo Gloria!
AND THIS LATER COMMENT FROM DR. BAUCHAM:
I was in Zambia showing it to Conrad Mbewe (the Spurgeon of Africa) and he absolutely fell in love with it. I simply had to leave it there.
It is a valuable tool, and I meant everything I said about it.
All of our guys love it.
We'll probably start buying them for our interns and leadership/elder training students as well.
Soli Deo Gloria!"

It's the first free MP3 on this page, entitled, "Parenting (Amazing Free MP3 on Training Children) by Voddie Baucham")
"Still Waters Revival Books has performed an astonishing feat in pulling together a massive collection of books and other resources.
Let me tell you how absolutely fantastic the Puritan Hard Drive really is.
This is a treasure trove for a local church pastor.
The search ability is beyond my expectation.
I was just on the island of Iona where Columba established a missionary outpost sending evangelists all over Britain. Searching the hard drive for "Columba" added much to my understanding of this great leader through the eyes of Spurgeon and many others.
Thank you so much... for going to the trouble to make this available.
I am greatly improved by it and I anticipate the pace of worldwide reformation to be improved as well."
I blogged about it here:
Below is the blog post from the link above:
"On my way across the ocean to study the reformation with Doug Phillips, I did not have a suitcase of books as I usually do. I was lamenting that fact at the airline ticket counter and my daughter Claudia said to me, "Papa, close your eyes and step into the new world." Well, let me confess: on my computer I have approximately 13,000 puritan and reformed books which I have acquired through my son downloading ebooks and a gigantic collection put together by Reg Barrow from Still Waters Revival Books. I am now like Abdul Kassem Ismael, Grand Vizier of Persia who, in the tenth century, carried his library with him wherever he went. The 117,000 volumes were carried by 400 camels which were trained to walk in alphabetical order."

Click here to see an additional short video of Scott Brown talking with a friend about the Puritan Hard Drive.
DR. STEVEN DILDAY REVIEWS AND RECOMMENDS THE PURITAN HARD DRIVE
"For a number of years now, I have followed, and benefited from, the work of Still Waters Revival Books, particularly the Reformation and Puritan Bookshelf CD sets... and now the Puritan Hard Drive.
The Puritan Hard Drive is a remarkable accomplishment!
The common Christian can now have a world-class Presbyterian and Reformed library at his fingertips, for only pennies per volume.
I do not think that it is an exaggeration to say that the Puritan Hard Drive presents an historic and singular opportunity.
The works on the Puritan Hard Drive have been invaluable to me in sermon preparation and in improving personal and familial piety. If these had been the only blessings attached to the reading of these documents, the expense (even if it had been much greater) would have been justified; but there is more here.
In this present time, a great many Presbyterians (particularly in North America) have forgotten and implicitly (perhaps unwittingly) rejected their Presbyterian heritage. Strangely, Westminster confessing churches have rejected the theological distinctives of the Westminster Standards.
Although the Westminster Assembly produced a beautiful statement of soteriological Calvinism, the histories clearly demonstrate that soteriology was not the principle focus, nor chief interest, of the Assembly. The Westminster Assembly was primarily concerned with uniformity in worship (in accordance with the Regulative Principle), the form of church government (Presbyterianism jus divinum), and Church-State relations (the Establishment Principle). It is a sad irony that the great and distinctive attainments of the Westminster Assembly have been ignored and rejected by so many Westminster confessing churches.
However, we may yet entertain the hope that these great attainments are rejected largely because of ignorance. The best books on these subjects have not been readily available; but (thanks be to God) they are available again on the Puritan Hard Drive.
For anyone interested in recovering our Presbyterian and Reformed past, the Puritan Hard Drive is a must.
It is my hope and prayer that the Puritan Hard Drive will be used by God to bring to light the things that were hidden, to call to remembrance the things that were forgotten."
