Spurgeon said of Durham: “If I had lived in his [Durham’s] time, I should never, I think, have wanted to hear any other preacher; I would have sat, both by night and day, to receive the sweet droppings of his honeyed lips”

A comment in a thread from 2012 suggested making his works available in Logos, and I thought I'd devote a thread to that suggestion.

His Commentary on Revelation is already in Logos and his Christ Crucified (“one of the best commentaries ever written on Christ’s person and work in redemption” - Joel Beeke) is part of Classic Commentaries and Studies on Isaiah Upgrade which is currently on CP.

However surprise has been expressed that his commentaries on Job and Song of Solomon (the latter was reprinted by Banner of Truth as part of their Geneva series) haven't been included in the Classic Commentary sets on those books. 
Spurgeon couldn't get hold of the one on Job but said: "It is certain to be good, for Durham is always admirable."
And on Song of Songs: "he is at his best upon the Canticles...For practical use this work is perhaps more valuable than any other Key to the Song."

Perhaps they are planned for future 'Upgrade' commentary sets, but that still leaves quite a list:

1. ‘Heaven upon Earth; twenty-two sermons,’ 1657.
2. ‘A Commentary on the Book of Revelation,’ 1658.
3. ‘The Dying Man's Testament to the Church of Scotland, or a Treatise concerning Scandal,’ 1659.
4. ‘An Exposition of the Book of Job,’ 1659.
5. ‘Clavis Cantici, or an Exposition of the Song of Solomon,’ 1668.
6. ‘The Law Unsealed, or a Practical Exposition of the Ten Commandments,’ 1676. (requested here)
7. ‘The Blessedness of the Dead that Die in the Lord,’ seven sermons, 1682.
8. ‘Christ Crucified,’ an exposition of Isaiah liii., 1683.
9. ‘The Unsearchable Riches of Christ,’ communion sermons, 1684.
10. ‘Sermons on Godliness and Self-Denial,’ 1685.
11. ‘The great Corruption of Subtile Self,’ seven sermons, 1686.

(List of works taken from the Dictionary of National Biography - most have already been digitised in some form).

Perhaps the works not yet in Logos could be included with those already here, with Dynamic Pricing used. Unless Logos want to keep the commentaries separate.

Durham and David Dickson were the joint authors of The Sum of Saving Knowledge, which is part of the new Westminster Standards collection that hit pre-pub yesterday.

Thanks so much for this. I know this has been up for a while, but I wanted to let you know that I'll start looking into these works to see if we can get another collection up.
