The file linked below is a docx with metadata for sermons found at Desiring God's website. When compiled, the resource will provide standard sermon indexes such as passage, date, speaker, etc., along with a URL to the sermon's audio/video and transcript at Desiring God. The sermon data will also appear appropriately in Sermon/Passage Guides. The sermons will appear in the resource sorted by date (with the first one being one of Dr. Piper's seminary sermons in 1971). An Index will appear at the bottom of the TOC panel with various metadata indexes. Compile the personal book as Type: 'Monograph'.

There is an older Piper Index on the forums, but I think it was done before the sermon metadata table for personal books was available.

For those new to Logos Personal Books, the compiled resource will not be available on mobile devices or the Web App.

I'm grateful to now have the Logos Piper full archive from a base package. I still find this index valuable in that it provides several indexes that are exposed directly in the resource. It also has messages from other speakers.

However, with both resources in my library, Guides will often return duplicates (one from the index; one from the archive). I keep both because of the above reasons, and because I might want a quick way to get to the A/V media at Desiring God from Guide results. I am providing an alternate version below that has an '(I) ' prefix in the sermon title. This enables a distinction in Guides results, and the user can decide which result is needed when.

Before any of you Karens out there explode, this file is NOT the John Piper Sermon resource available from Faithlife, it is an *index* of the sermons. Robert is not violating any part of the forum guidelines.

Thanks for providing this, Robert!

My thanks to the various MVPs. Without them Logos would have died early. They were the only real help available.

Doc B:
an *index* of the sermons

Yeah, they're different aminals.

I had actually purchased the Piper archives a few years ago and found them unsatisfying, as I thought they didn't have much functionality, and I returned them. Maybe that was prior to some tagging work in Logos, or maybe I just didn't allow the index process to catch up after a new resource. So, that's why I created the Index. I see now that the Logos archives are good guide actors, but still limited for intra-resource navigation. (And no media links.)

Robert M. Warren:
and found them unsatisfying

When I would use the Piper sermons in Logos, I would go to DesiringGod dot org and find what I wanted then pull up the Logos resource to that location.

I think some better functionality was added at some point because later, I was better able to find things I needed by searching in Logos.  But I still think your index is a nice added value for the set.

Is this one different than the earlier one you posted?  Thank you very much for these by the way!  Your MacArthur ones are awesome

The only difference is the '(I) ' in the sermon titles.
