So I bought the complete set of spurgeon sermons and I can't wait to read all 3,000 of them, but How do I search them?

It was promoted that I could enter a search text and spurgeon's sermons would pop up if there was a sermon that used that text.

For example I'm studying Jonah and wanted to see if Spurgeon ever preached on Chapter 1 for example. So I put in the search bar on my PC and my ipad Jonah Spurgeon and nothing comes up.  Is there an sermon passage guide or at least a doc that tells what is in all these volumes which I had to click on individually to download.?

Thanks

While I am not good at drawing the arrows for the steps, hopefully, this screenshot will help you. Someone may have a better way to fine tune your search, but it seemed to do the trick quite nicely.

Hope it helps,

I did also want to include this screenshot which shows how I have clicked on what resource/collection I want to search from. I would suggest learning about how to manage your "collections" also. You can do this on the wiki page (there is a link at the top of the forum site).

Welcome to the Forums (feel weird saying that since I have only posted 12 times),

Welcome to the forums Matthew. This link may help you:

Whilst the automatic links in this Personal Book won't work with the newly formatted Spurgeon sermon set (it was developed for the older Spurgeon set) this index will show up references to relevant sermons in your Passage Guide. You can then manually navigate to the full sermon in your library.

Check out this wiki page for details of how to build Personal Books:

thanks for the help, that gets me started, but do I have to create a custom search each time?

If you set up this Personal Book as intended, every time you do a scripture search in the Passage Guide, any Spurgeon sermon covering that Scripture passage will be referenced.

If you want to search Spurgeon's sermons using different means (say, looking for all instances of "forgiveness") you could do a basic search using Logos' search feature limited to a collection you've set up containing only Spurgeon's sermons.
