Puritan Board Sophomore
Hello all. I am starting a new project, Lord willing, that will take the 1,600 or so Puritan and Non-Conformists sermons; and create a Puritan sermon commentary. Right now I am calling it "The Puritan Pulpit Commentary." With 1,600 sermons, a lot of the Bible should be covered, hopefully. This is really the only way I can see to getting close to an actual Puritan Commentary, without simply taking whole commentaries written by Puritans and stacking them. I am very grateful, as Zotero takes a brunt of the work out of it organization wise. It will be offered in digital first; but we will see how it goes. I am projecting about 4-6 months to completion, as first I have to organize the sermons, then use the EEBO-Corrected Corpus for the body. But I also plan to create a theWord and E-Sword Commentary of it as well. I may mess around and see if I can create a Logos commentary out of it, but I am not familiar with doing so right now. Any suggestions are appreciated. I dont mind this being a growing work, and kind of having this as the base, which is kind of doable when you thank about it, because sermons are way easier to transcribe, even by the average person than entire books. So this may be something that us in the Puritan community may grow. Just give me a little time and let me form the base, and then I will start looking for Puritan sermons that may have been missed to fill in the gaps of scriptures not covered by this. God Bless.
