The new Sermons section in the Guides continues to expand, with hundreds more sermons indexed in the latest round of updates. That's good to see. In my library, the following resources are now appearing in the guide:

How do you get the John Piper Sermons to show up in the Passage Guide sermon section?

If you own it, it should show up.  Well, if there's a topic related to the passage you're studying if not, depending on your library size, sometimes you will get no results.

If you input the reference Genesis-Revelation, the "Passage Guide" should display every sermon resource you have.

Can anyone tell me if Spurgeon's sermons are showing up the sermon section?

I am not sure how well things are tagged....this list shows that McCheyne's sermons are tagged, yet the sermon on John 17:24 (Sermon 23) is not showing up in searches....others do....

Many of them have had auto-tagging applied, and there are problems with at least five resources (including McCheyne).

I noticed I received an update today and with McCheyne's sermons they no longer show each point as a sermon. Thats an improvement. Oddly enough, John 17:24 (Sermon 23) is still not showing up in my sermon section although virtually every other one I try is. What are the odds I would find the "one" 

Still nice to see McCheyne updated :) Thanks Logos!!!!

Congratulations - keep reporting them as bugs. That's how we get them fixed. The more people reporting mistagging the more apt we are to get their auto-tagging working correctly.

Dumb question maybe, when you say "auto tagging" are you saying a computer is doing the tagging?

Disclaimer: I am in no way an expert or even a good novice when it comes to computer programming.

I believe however they have developed an algorithm which identifies certain texts and automatically tags them. I would imagine that because all resources are not exactly the same a certain level of fine tuning those algorithms is required.

I don't know whether it is computer only or computer-assisted but the results that we were seeing, especially in the resources released that started this thread, bore all the marks of computer tagging rather than human tagging. In other tagging which has had systemic problems, the speed with which Logos can produce a corrected resource implies that tagging has heavy computer assistance.

John Newton vol 2 and Works of Robert Trail on sale this month. Doesn't look like they're included in Sermon Finder yet though?

I'm having a problem. In the Sermon Section, I get some sermon resource headings (with options to expand to see the listings included within that resource). BUT, when I click on the MORE >> link, I get no response at all. [Maybe there are no more? - But why does "more >>" even show up?] Hmmm.

I am not sure where I saw it recently and don't have time to search for it today, but the "more" showing up when there is no more is a known bug.

I wish I would have purchased the Mark Driscoll sermon collection before they took it down. Many of the old stuff (which was the best) has been removed from the Mars Hill website in the past year or so. His material on Ruth, Song of Solomon, and 1 Corinthians is excellent.
