I realize this is an old thread, but I tried to download the Gill notes, and the link isn't working.  Can anyone direct me to a current server?

Thanks,

Hi Will:

Welcome to the Logos Forums.

Check out the Previous page IPage 2 near the bottom) of this thread, where I made a new Dropbox link for this excellent work (both Gill and our friend Daniel). Daniel's link died and I haven't noticed him in the Forums for quite some time.

BTW, the Forums are veritably chocked full of really nice Personal Book-Ready Word docs. See this excellent Wiki page, which is maintained by another generous Forum user, Rosie:

Excellent.  Thank you for all your work.

Robert, 

God Bless you brother. Because of your sacrifice of time, I was able to add John Gill's commentary to my Logos 4 package. John Gill was instrumental in my growth as a believer and I thank God that you gave clear instructions in your "Seeing the Kingdom" link which gave instructions for how to include a book in Logos. Please show others using Logos how easy this is so that they too can be blessed. Thank You Brother, I have been thanking God for you for the past 1/2 hour!

Ivan J. Perrino:
Thank You Brother

I appreciate your gratitude. I'll point out that the big Gill file was submitted by Daniel Gomes Silveira (see Page 1 this thread), who I believe did all the formatting and tagging work. I haven't seen him around the forums lately; I owe him much gratitude also. (I had actually done my own Gill files separately from some files I found at a Primitive Baptist web site, but Daniel's was much higher quality).

My poor, neglected blog does have a couple of useful posts (both linked in the bottom line of my signature). The first details my methods for converting Kindle files and PDFs, and the second one I posted after I got Word 2013 and it relates to converting PDFs in Word. I'll add a short word of advice about PDFs and the methods I described in the posts:  If pictures are more prominent in the PDF than footnotes, use the non-Word 2013 method from the original post. If footnotes are more prominent/critical, use Word 2013, as it will retain the functionality of live footnotes in a PDF.

Hi Matt:

In case Daniel doesn't check the forum soon, and since I know you're probably eager to use his fine work on this, I have uploaded a copy to Dropbox.

Here's the link:  https://www.dropbox.com/s/50z77lbnq6x5pmz/Gill%20-%20Whiole.docx 

I have removed this file from DropBox, since the Logos resource, Gill's Works, has now shipped. (I should have removed it earlier, but didn't think about it until I saw the real thing hit my library.)

This is unnecessary. Faithlife requests that you not attach files to the forum if it is sold as a Logos product. Gill's work is in the public domain and should get wide distribution. Hosting a public domain resource on a non-Faithlife server is good for the church.

Hi Dave:

I agree re: public domain books. I was just removing the link from here so I wouldn't interfere with Logos' marketing of a product on their forum.

If you're interested in having the docx, you can send me a message at my email (on my Faithlife profile page) I'll do another link and send it to you. (Yes, I know, it's still using their forum in a round about way.)

Whether or not a title is public domain has nothing to do with Logos' request that we not post titles they carry. Logos sells a significant amount of resources that are in the public domain - nearly everything that comes through community pricing.

Hi MJ;

Question (sorry for busting in on the conversation, but I may as well get clarity on this myself while the conversation is fresh) - Isn't there a big difference and substantial value in the work that goes into converting resources (public domain or otherwise) into Logos format?

My thoughts - The only comparison between a PBB and corresponding Logos version is the base text (I could be wrong, I'm no expert). The PBB lacks the tagging and other things that make the Logos format worth obtaining. I'm not objecting to Logos/Faithlife policy on this, just attempting to get clarity on the reasoning behind it, and I figure that you have been around long enough to possibly know the answer. Smile

Again, I apologize for busting in on the conversation in which I am already late on.

Thanks

It depends on the resource and the PB "author". Logos has made it possible for us to do much of the tagging in a PB - it's jst that most shared PB's have minimal tagging. We can do all the references and people/place/thing tags that Logos does. And doing it convinces you it is worth paying them to do it.Smile So, yes, the Logos edition still has some value added over a PB. And the fact that Logos sells it does not meaning you can't find a pdf or docx copy and make a PB of it ... it's just you have to do your own conversion work.

Thanks MJ;

I never really got into the personal tagging thing, it just seem like too much thought and work (for me) to mess around with, that should and could be spent studying the Word. Best left for those at the expert level.

Jose:
Eu removi o link, desde Logos agora vende o recurso Gill, e que seria impróprio para manter o arquivo livre em fóruns Logos. Se você vai me enviar um e-mail em meu endereço de perfil Faithlife (Inglês, se puder), vou enviar-lhe um link.

I believe it was deactivated once Logos started selling it as is logos policy.
