Last night I made a Personal Book of Charles Wesley's Journal.  I have made Personal Books of The Autobiography of Peter Cartwright, and a Commentary on Revelation.

I am working on some E. Stanley Jones material.

I'd like to know what others are doing with this wonderful tool.

I just started working on bringing my collection of Wesleyan Theological Journal PDFs into Logos. I've also been trying to bring in my sermons a little at a time. I'm still learning but I'm having fun with it.

I would really like to start, but I have not used this feature yet. I thought I would use it all the time, but I just haven't invested the time in learning the syntax yet. (I know it is not supposed to be hard, but I just haven't been interested.)

I heard forum "chatter" that perhaps Logos would produce a template or something for us to use with sermons and the like. If Logos did that, maybe that would motivate me to action. :-).

I've just finished making The New Testament in Modern English (J.B. Phillips).

I've also done:

The Anabaptist Vision (Harold Bender)

North and South (Elizabeth Gaskell) - haven't cleaned it up or done TOC yet

The Origins of the Christian Mystical tradition from Plato to Denys (Andrew Louth)

Raymund Lull: First Missionary to the Moslems (Samuel M. Zwemer) - just recently appeared in CP, only after I'd done all that work!

I'm working on God Calling (A Devotional Diary) by "Two Listeners" (A.J. Russell) and Tools for Conviviality (Ivan Illich)

The Files forum is where people post their .docx files when they've got PBs that they are free to share with others.

But we ought to have a master list somewhere (on the wiki), and also a list of ones that people are working on (and likely to finish soon), so that others don't waste the effort. I think MJ Smith was trying to spearhead an effort to get such a list going, but I'm not sure it has actually got off the ground. There is a wiki page with various tools and files people have shared, but it doesn't include PBs.

It would be very nice if we had an index listing with links to the latest version of the docx files for the PBBs that people are willing to share.

Rosie - Is this a file that you could share?  I would really like to have this resource on Logos too.

I am working on the John Phillips alliterated commentaries.  I own them on another software so I paid for them and I want to put them on my L4 software.  It's looking good so far.

guee-guee-ree!

I have made a few books on Chuck Smith's sermons through the Bible. I was able to find all his sermon transcripts at Blue Letter Bible HERE.

It as been relatively easy to copy and paste these into Word documents.

It's still in copyright so I can't post it.

I have done John Paul II's complete Theology of the Body, and The Gift of Scripture, written by the Bishops' Conferences of England, Wales and Scotland (a reflection on, and in celebration of the 40th anniversary of Dei Verbum, On Divine Revelation, from Vatican II).

I believe both of these are copyright, but if I am wrong I am happy to share them so let me know!

Is there any place or oganized way to share uncopyrighted documents prepared to make Personal Books?

You can share docx files in the files forum.

But it seems that with concerns about whether Logos sells or will sell a book and whether or not you completely researched the copyright status makes many hesitant to do so. In some minds it probably isn't worth the hassle.  Also the uncertainty about what the personal book store will bring to the party adds to the hesitancy.  These concerns are valid, but restrict the number of files appearing there.

I have created an index on the wiki to PB books that people have shared on the Files forum:

http://wiki.logos.com/User_Contributed_Personal_Books

I will try to keep it up to date, but if you post a PB yourself or notice new PBs being posted, feel free to add them. My practice is to post a link to the actual post where the documents are attached, and the latest version at that, so it might not be the first post in the thread if someone posts a corrected version later on. To get the link for a particular post, click the folded-over page icon next to the poster's name, then copy the entire URL (including the bookmark - the numerical part after the #) and paste it as the link.
