Just wanted to let you know, the Puritan Hard Drive came in the mail today. I spent a little over an hour browsing the contents and am looking forward to diving in and doing some serious reading! I'm floored at the sheer quantity and breadth of the contents. That so many of the .pdf's are OCR'd and searchable is truly remarkable!
I am amazed at my newly found ability to search Ursinus' Commentary on the Heidelberg Catechism, Witsius' Economy of the Covenants, all seven volumes of Calvin's Selected Works: Tracts and Letters, Dabney's Discussions and his Lectures in Systematic Theology, as well as Charles Hodge's three volumes of Systematic Theology to name only a few. I haven't even begun to plumb the resources by Diodati, Hengstenberg, John Dick, Jonathan Edwards, Matthew Henry, Martin Luther ... and I could just keep on going!
When you mentioned the .mp3 collection, I must admit that I was skeptical at first; I wasn't sure I would have a need for .mp3s. Upon browsing the selection, however, I am convinced that this too will be an incredible resource - especially for my daily commute. I look forward to listening to audio book versions of Augustine's City of God and his Confessions, John Owen's Death of Death and his Mortification of Sin, and Jonathan Edwards' The Religious Affections - again, to name only a few!
I'm only at the beginning of my journey through the Puritan Hard Drive but based on what I've seen so far, some very delightful study lies ahead!
