I am working through my library seeing how to make it more useful to me.  I have been consulting books that recommend commentaries to identify books I am not familiar with that I need to look at more closely.

One of the books I am using is Spurgeon’s book.  I know it’s old, and these writers didn’t have the latest findings in archaeology and manuscripts, but they knew how to feed a person’s soul. 

I am finding that many of the books he recommends have been sitting in Community Pricing for years.  I would say that too few Bible students today know who these people are or they have been taught that commentaries can easily go out of date.

I would like to see Logos work harder to bring these books to publication.  One way is to promote them either through showing Spurgeon’s comments or through personal use and then offering new reviews of them.

If our mission is to help equip the Church to serve Christ better, we need to use all the tools we can, including the great works of the past.

I went through emails that I sent to suggest@logos.com   and found these.  I still have barely gone through Spurgeon/  thank you STIER (Rudolph, D. D.) The Words of the Lord Jesus. Eight vols. in four. 8vo. 42s. T. & T. Clark. 1869. No one can be expected to receive all that Stier has to say, but he must be dull indeed who cannot learn much from him. Read with care, he is a great instructor.[2]   languishing in Community Pricing Masterly studies on important topics. Students will do well to read also Trench’s “Sermon on the Mount.” We do not always agree with this author, but we always learn from him.[3] languishing in Community Pricing, along with a number of other really good books by him 1035    DICKSON (David). A Briefe Exposition of Matthew, 8vo. 1651. 7s. 6d. A perfect gem. The work is, to men of our school, more suggestive of sermons than almost any other we have met with.[4] languishing in community pricing, along with a number of other books I really would like to see put out. 1044    THOMAS (David, D. D.) Genius of the Gospel. Homiletical Commentary. 8vo. Lond., Dickinson. 1873. 8s. 6d. We hardly know a more suggestive book.[5] Logos has his work on John, and there is his work on Acts, languishing in Community Pricing.  STANLEY (Arthur Penrhyn, D. D., Dean of Westminster). Lectures on the History of the Jewish Church. Part I. Abraham to Samuel. Part II. Samuel to the Captivity. Two vols., 8vo. 32s. Lond., 1870. S. 18s. A fascinating book, which no one can read without being the better able to realize the scenes of Scripture history. The author’s broad views are known and deplored: that he has equal breadth of learning we cheerfully admit.[4]   languishing in Community Pricing.   GREENFIELD (William, M. R. A. S. Editor of the Comprehensive Bible). Genesis in English and Hebrew, with an Interlinear Translation, Notes, and Grammatical introduction. 8vo. Lond., 1862. S. 3s. This work will not only enable the Student to get at the literal meaning of the text, but may be used as an introduction to the Hebrew language. The plan is most admirable and we earnestly commend it to the attention of those uninstructed in the sacred tongue.[5]   languishing in Community Pricing JACOBUS (Melancthon W., Professor of Biblical Literature, Alleghany, U. S.) Notes. Two vols. sm. 8vo. New York, 1866. S. 8s. A very valuable work, in which Colenso is boldly met and answered. It contains much Gospel teaching, and aids the preacher greatly. Not easily to be obtained. It ought to be reprinted.[7] also languishing in the same Community Pricing 1035    DICKSON (David). A Briefe Exposition of Matthew, 8vo. 1651. 7s. 6d. A perfect gem. The work is, to men of our school, more suggestive of sermons than almost any other we have met with.[1] DICKSON (David.) Short Explanation of Hebrews. 8vo. Aberd., 1635; Camb., 1649; and Lond., 1839. This is generally to be found in connection with the author’s “Brief Exposition on Matthew.” (No. 1035.) We need say no more than—get it, and you will find abundance of suggestions for profitable trains of thought.[2] This is languishing in Community Pricing.  STEWARD (George). Argument of the Epistle to the Hebrews. 8vo. 10s. 6d. Edinb., T. & T. Clark. 1872. Unhappily the author died before he had quite completed this “argument.” The work is most helpfulDevil This is also languishing in Community Pricing.             HENDERSON (Ebenezer, D. D.) Isaiah, translated from the Hebrew; with a Commentary. 8vo, 1840. Second and best edition. 1857. S. 8s. 6d. Scarce (pub. at 16s.). The author has given no doctrinal or practical observations, as he conceived that others had furnished these in abundance; he has confined himself to eliciting the real meaning of the words, and has thereby rendered great service to all expositors who have wit enough to make use of his critical assistance. To the less instructed reader, Dr. Henderson’s work will appear to be dull and savorless; but to those who only need to have the language translated, and are able to supply reflections for themselves, it will be of much service.[7] languishing in Community Pricing KEITH (Alexander, A. M.) Isaiah as it is: or Judah and Jerusalem the subjects of Isaiah’s prophesying. Cr. 8vo. Edinb., 1850. 3s. The student will consult with benefit this valuable contribution to the explanation of a most important, but neglected book.Music same Community Pricing bundle SMITH (R. Payne, D. D., Dean of Canterbury). The Authenticity and Messianic Interpretation of the Prophecies of Isaiah Vindicated, in Sermons before the University of Oxford. 8vo. 10s. 6d. Oxf. and Lond., J. H. & J. Parker. 1862. S. 5s. 6d. A work which would be invaluable in a discussion with Jews. It meets their objections, and also those advanced by neologians, and by the writers of Essays and Reviews[9] same Community Pricing bundle DURHAM (James). Christ Crucified: or the Marrow of the Gospel, holden forth in Seventy-two Sermons on Isaiah liii. Editions, folio, 4to. and 8vo. 3s. to 5s. This is marrow indeed. We need say no more: Durham is a prince among spiritual expositors.[10] same Community Pricing bundle CALVERT (Thomas). Mel Cœli, Medulla Evangelii: or The Prophet Isaiah’s Crucifix. An Exposition of the Fifty-third chapter of Isaiah. 4to. 1867. 5s. to 7s. 6d. Precious and practical. Just what the title would lead us to expect—marrow and fatness; honey from the Rock, Christ Jesus.[11]             MARGOLIOUTH (Moses, B. A.) Six Lectures on Isaiah liii., etc. 8vo. Lond., Hatchards. 1846. 2s. Well worth a careful reading.[12] similar book by same author in that same Community Pricing DAVIDSON (A. B., M. A. Hebrew Tutor, New College, Edinb.) A Commentary Grammatical and Exegetical; with a Translation. Vol. I.8vo. 7s. 6d. Lond., Williams & Norgate. 1862. Strict grammatical treatment of Scripture is always commendable, and in this case the results are valued by advanced scholars.[5] languishing in Community Pricing HULBERT (Charles Augustus, M. A., Perpetual Curate of Harthwaite, Yorks.) The Gospel Revealed to Job. Thirty Lectures, with Notes. 8vo. Lond., Longmans. 1853. S. 3s. 6d. An unusually good book; exceedingly comprehensive and helpful in many ways. The author aimed at usefulness and has succeeded wonderfully. We wonder that his work has not been better known.Devil languishing in Community Pricing SEISS (Joseph A., D. D.) The Gospel in Leviticus. 8vo. 6s. Edinb., Thomas C. Jack. 1860. Twenty-one very admirable lectures, founded upon Bush and Bonar, but containing much original matter. The work deserves attention.[3]   This is languishing in community pricing.
