Well, I called that one! DCL picked it off.
The Heritage Book links below no longer work. Are there different links?
RHB revamped their website recently. I don't think they have any current links for donating to the William Perkins project. However, they are still taking donations. If you wish to donate, I would contact them directly or go to the Reformed Publishing Cooperative website which I linked to earlier in this thread (RHB is collaborating with the Encylopedia Puritannica Project on this publication). Derek Thomas recently joined Joel Beeke in the editing process; however, I am told that due to slower-than-expected progress, the anticipated release date for the first volume is now 2008.
PDF works of Perkins
The three-volume works of Perkins are available here for a very small fee indeed: about $3. You can also download Anthony Burgess's work on justification, Samuel Rutherford's works, and loads of other great things for just about peanuts.
Here is an update on the William Perkins Works Project from Tony Reinke (first volume now expected in February/March 2008).
In the meantime, as we wait for RHB, Perkins' commentary on Hebrews 11 is available at Amazon here, and his commentary on Galatians (completed by Ralph Cudworth) is available here, while The Art of Prophesying is available online here.
I got a good look at the edition of William Perkins' Works at the Puritan Resource Center at PRTS in Grand Rapids recently. It came from the personal library of Charles Spurgeon. It was later bought by A.W. Pink and contains his personal markings. Quite a gem.
Joel Beeke goes out of his way every 10 sermons to mention it. ;-) (I think I would too)
There is a nice 1635 edition of volume 1 of Perkins' Works for sale at Ebay.
The Works of William Perkins
Looking forward to this.
You are not the only one
The Conventicle: William Perkins and a 'Case of Conscience'
I am told that there will be a significant delay. The first volume will not be coming out this month after all, perhaps not until next year, though the new target date has not yet been determined.
This is disappointing news.
William Perkins’ The Foundation of the Christian Religion Gathered into Six Principles « Leviticus and Stuff (April 8, 2008)
William Perkins Commentary on Hebrews 11
Today I sent Dr. Beeke an e-mail and his answer hasn't good news, unfortunately: "We were hoping to have volume 1 of 6 ready by the end of this year, but have been set back a year by other projects that intervened. Now, I'm hoping for the end of 2009. We hope to do one volume per year, as the Lord enables"
