Thanks so much for this file!!

I am also interested in you "boring me" with the excel file!  Did you individually add all these links? 

What about the Spurgeon's sermon file.  i will look for it later.

ALSO you mention: If you want to see it in a passage guide, i think you should specify "Bible Commentary" 12/20/14 forum.  I would be interested in finding out all the different ways to document this in Logos.  Why is this different?  Do you have a link to the specifications.  (I don't know the technical names for this stuff or even know where to look)

Impressed!  Thanks,  Mike

Hi Mike:

OMykeO:

OK, get out your hanky, here's a link:  https://www.dropbox.com/s/f1up8erkbqy6fzj/Revised%20MacArthur%20Sermon%20Index.xlsb?dl=0 The first sheet has notes/instructions, in case one wants to try to apply the techniques to another ministry's site. I'm certain there are better ways to harvest web info, but I have a hammer and everything looks like a nail.

OMykeO:
What about the Spurgeon's sermon file.

Spurgeon is a different issue. The file I made from the CCEL PDFs consists of the full-text of the sermons, compared to the JFM file here, which is just a pointer to web resources. It would be construed as competing with Logos' superior edition, using their forum. I am, however, easy to track down via another medium.

OMykeO:
ALSO you mention: If you want to see it in a passage guide, i think you should specify "Bible Commentary" 12/20/14 forum.  I would be interested in finding out all the different ways to document this in Logos.  Why is this different?  Do you have a link to the specifications.  (I don't know the technical names for this stuff or even know where to look)

The original JFM file posted here was designed to be compiled as a Bible Commentary and as such would appear in the Commentary section of a Passage Guide. This was mainly due to me not knowing much. This most recent file is re-worked to use the specialized sermon tagging; the entries will appear in an applicable Passage Guide in the Sermon section, and has the Index section at the end of the resource.

The Logos WIki has details about the sermon tagging here:  https://wiki.logos.com/Sermon_and_Illustration_Support  and here: https://wiki.logos.com/Personal_Books (near the bottom).

Enjoy!

I have fixed a few nonsensical topic words that I came across. The good thing about Find & Replace is that it does exactly what you tell it. The bad thing about Find & Replace is that it does exactly what you tell it.

This link is the same as the one above, just updated.

Robert M. Warren:

Here is the index re-done with sermon tagging/indexing. Compile as type Monograph. Passage Guide will have them in Sermon section (if applicable). The document itself is in chronological order. If you're new to the concept of a personal book with sermon tagging, be sure to check the very bottom of the TOC for the Index sections.

I also updated it through 12/11/2016  11/12/2016 week before last.

I have just noticed that GTY has revamped how sermons are presented on their website. This has caused the Text links on the index to assume room temperature. The direct Audio links still work (for now). Now the audio widget and the sermon text are on the same page. I will need to revamp the URL scheme for the Text links to use a Google search (which is better anyway, as it tends to be dynamic). I am recovering from a nasty broken ankle, so when I get where I can do extensive things, and I've caught up with work, I'll spend some time getting this functional again. The Dropbox link won't change and I'll notify here when done.

I have fixed this. The Dropbox link is below and the link from Dec-2016 should also be fixed.

The Text links will lead to a Google search with the sermon title and the GTY ID#. Two or three hits should display. Choose the one with "www.gty.org/library" or "www.gty.org/resources" in the path. The others will be to product  links.

This is a fantastic resource!

Only problem is that all the text sermon links just go to google.com?

Any ideas with how to fix this?

Hi NL:

On some of the indexes I made, I had to use Google to search on the sermon title as an intermediate step, due to a lack of discernable consistency with how the destination files are organized by the ministry. In this case the JFM audio pieces were simple to link with a direct URL. Perhaps at the time I did this, the transcripts weren't. The real problem came when, sometime during 2020, Google apparently grew a wild eyelash that caused them to change their search syntax (or something). Hence, the blank Google screen. Earlier in 2021, I had fixed the Adrian Rogers audio resource and the S. Lewis Johnson resource, but I didn't remember to fix the JFM transcript piece.

It's very likely I'll be able to fix this sometime this week and post back here. I'll either do a quick fix to the Google URL structure, or the transcripts might now be reachable direct.

Thanks for catching the issue. I have the Logos JFM resource, so I might have never noticed my homemade file was obsolete.

It's fixed. I'm repeating the Dropbox link below. You might encounter a dead end here and there among the Text links; not sure why.

I have updated the MacArthur index through Sep 5 2021. The link below has a zip file containing two docx files which are identical except for a '(i)' prefix on the titles.

The '(i)' file is intended for users who have the Logos JFM archive, but also want indexed audio access for the last seven years, the Bible Q&As, and some miscellaneous non-GCC messages (Shepherds, TMS, etc.). The prefix will differentiate the index files from the archive files when they appear together in a guide, enabling the user to either get the quick audio access of the index, or open the Logos transcript (which has an audio link waaay down at the bottom of the sermon).

Disclaimers: The Topics are a bit of a mess, because I found them difficult to automate. But many are still useful. Personal books do not sync to mobile devices nor the web app.

Compile as type: Monograph. For those not familiar with this type of file, it consists of metadata sections for each sermon, which comprise the resource itself. The indexes those sections produce when the resource is complied will cause them to appear in the Sermon section of various Guides. It will also have a nice Index section at the bottom of the TOC pane. The metadata section has two links under it: one is a one-click audio link that will open your web browser to play the file. The other will take you to the GTY page where you can read the transcript or watch the sermon, if video is available.
