    Does anyone know why Christopher Love's complete works were not republished by Soli Deo Gloria? Or if anyone plans to reprint them in the near future?

    In Meet the Puritans, Beeke and Pederson note (p. 403, concerning Volume 1 of Love's Works) that "Most of the remaining books of Love, originally intended to be collected into a second and third volume of his works, have been published as individual titles by Soli Deo Gloria." Perhaps Dr. Kistler could shed more light.

    Somebody told me there was supposed to be five volumes. The individual titles were also very expensive.

    My recollection (either from a conversation with Dr. Kistler or an associate in SDG) is that the sales of the first volume were low enough that publication of the remaining volumes as "Complete Works" wasn't going to be financially viable - hence the smaller individual pieces that have come out since Vol. 1 of Love's works was published (which I snapped up immediately upon its publication, hoping for the rest to soon follow ;))

    Yes, Volume 1 did not sell well enough to justify doing it as a set of "Works." That volume has still not sold out almost 10 years later. The individual titles seem to sell better, even though the multi-title volumes are more cost effective.

    Most of Love's more popular works have been published, however.

    A regular complaint I heard was that SDG did not combine two of Love's smaller works and sell them as one book; as they did with some other works.

    Christopher Love is probably my favorite puritan!
    I wish he were more well known!
    I have been fed so much through his writings!

    He is an excellent read.

    For a while, the tag line on my signature here was a quote from Christopher Love's speech uttered while on the scaffold (ibid, p. 120):
