Has there been any talk of generating a module of John Owen's massive commentary on the book of Hebrews?  

How about something of his works in general similar to the Works of Jonathan Edwards?

There is a $9.99 module available which includes The Death of Death in the Death of Christ and Of the Mortification of Sin in Believers. If we can find a good e-text of the commentary on Hebrews we can certainly consider adding it.

Charisteleois,

 

I found a link many volumes of his collected works: http://www.godrules....epistle-hebrews

 

To get this into Accordance you have two main options: a User Tool or a User Note.  A user tool would be analogous to an 'English Tools' module and a user note would be analogous to a 'Reference Tools' module only in that a user note follows the flow of the Biblical text.

 

For a User Tool, you would need to combine these separate files into one HTML file and then import it into Accordance.

 

Sadly, there is no easy way to automatically import a User Note as of right now.  I tried using Joe Weaks' applescript to automate the process of importing a User Note but I still have some bugs to work out.

 

If you'd like help getting a single HTML file together that can be imported as a User Tool, let me know.

 

Bob

I know we have some seleted portions of Puritans in Accordance but I would really love to see more of the entire collected works of Puritans such as:

 

Thomas Manton

Richard Sibbes

John Owens

John Flavel

James Durham

Robert Traill

Jeremiah Burroughs

and on .....

 

Not a Puritan but foundational to their theology:

John Calvin - there are many sermons, letters, etc.

 

While I am at it, a recently released book that should be in everyone's library with any interest in Puritans or Reformed Theology:

 

A Puritan Theology: Doctrine for Life by Joe Beeke and Mark Jones

 

An excellent book! It would be on my short list for book of the year!

Yes, I would love to see Owen's Hebrews commentary in Accordance.  I did get the Owen module, but I have to say I was disappointed that it only contained Mortification of Sin and Death of Death.  Not even Communion with God or Christologia.  Now that iOS has bookmarks, it would be brilliant to carry the complete Owen around with me.

I have compiled a pdf of the Owen commentary on Hebrews complete with bookmarks and footnotes.  Its fully formatted.  I will email it to you if you would add it please.

We would prefer the text in a different format, almost anything is easier to export than PDF.

Helen, I can convert it into a word document.  How can I get it to you?  I can convert it into multiple different formats.  Whatever would work best for you.  Just let me know!  Can we exchange it through dropbox?  I'm very eager to get this commentary into accordance!

Any tagged markup language would work (html, xhtml, xml); why don't you try a couple and we can see how it looks.

 

What is the source of your text? That is, did you prepare it yourself from scans, did you download it from somewhere (archive.org, gutenberg.org), etc.?

 

Thanks!

I realize this is a super late reply but how do I add media to a post so you can access the files?  Or is there an email address I could send them to?

Send me a message through the forum with your email address so we can discuss this. As mentioned above we need to know the source of the text. Just because it is public domain does not mean we have permission to use it for commercial purposes. 

 

Thanks!
