By popular demand, here's an updated version of my Complete Index to Spurgeon's Sermons. To use it, you need to compile it as a personal book. This version works with the Complete Spurgeon Sermon Collection, produced by Logos. The file contains three indexes - a scripture index, an alphabetical index, and one organised by volume/sermon number. I recommend that you compile the index as a Bible Commentary so that the Scripture index will show in your Passage Guide.

0552.Index to Spurgeons Sermons (Logos Edition).docx

The screenshot shows the three indexes side by side. In the actual resource the indexes are one after the other. If you prefer you can separate the three indexes into three separate files. If you don't want to make your own cover image, this one should do:

Over 100 errors in the original source have already been corrected, but if you notice any more, please let me know on this thread. If you need an index for the edition of these sermons that was published by AGES, that's also available.

Mark, thank you so much! This looked to be a tough job as the tagging was much different, so thank you for your effort, ingenuity, or both!

This is excellent. Thank you Mark! Does anyone know how to go about making resources like this? It would be great to be able to have a scripture index like this that included every sermon in my library! I know how to tag the Bible references, but not how to link to the logos resource like this.

Mark,

1. Thank you!

2. How did you put this together so fast? I'm thinking of compiling an index for Piper's and, soon, Keller's sermon manuscript libraries but I know no method which isn't prohibitively labor-intensive.

God bless!

The old edition of the Sermons already had an index available. Previously I had exported that index in HTML format. I then wrote a script that parsed that export file to extract the information about each sermon and place it in a database. I corrected the data where necessary (the original index had several errors). Another script then generated the three indexes from that data and saved it as a HTML file which I then imported into Word. All I needed to do this time was figure out a way of converting the data to work with the new referencing system in the new edition. Thankfully the hidden article tags are mostly logical and consistent (they start at 1 and increment by 1), so it wasn't too difficult.

I don't have Keller's sermons, but Piper's sermons would need indexing manually as the index provided doesn't include Scripture references. It's possible that Desiring God might have an index they could send you though. It's also possible that someone might be able to scrape their website and extract the data from there. It's not a bad idea, actually, but I'm unlikely to have the time to do it myself, at least at the moment.

Thanks again Mark!

It would be great to have a scripture index like this that had a link to every sermon that was available as a Logos resource! 

Or Logos could make a scripture index sermon guide so that every sermon in someones library for a particular verse would show up (instead of just ones that quote that verse somewhere).
