The Works of Thomas Boston (Logos)
Very few Puritans have more influenced my life and preaching than Thomas Boston (1676-1732). Joel Beeke writes, “may God raise up servants in this third millennium of the Christian era motivated by that which made Boston such an effective ambassador of Christ: a humble spirituality, a high view of the Christian ministry, a compassionate zeal for souls, and unwearied preaching of Christ” (Works of Thomas Boston, 1:I-16). And in another place he writes, “Boston’s sermons are models of sound exegesis combined with experiential piety and admonition” (Meet the Puritans, p. 661). And so it is a great joy to announce the complete 12 volume Works of Thomas Boston are now available in Logos/Libronix format. Best of all these treasures are free!
Thank you to our good friend Joe K. back in snowy Omaha for his work on this project! To finally have Boston in searchable electronic format is a real service to the church.

Most excellent! I posted a little something on Logos earlier this week…they are up for a rather prestigious award:
So totally awesome! I’m looking forward to purchasing the Scholar’s Library very, very soon and I’m tickled to see that Boston’s volumes are available.
This means I’ll be able to stop raiding my Pastor’s library for one more book. :-)
I’m getting error messages about these files.
It says I have to have the “Personal Book Builder” in order to use these files. You didn’t mention that.
Wally, here are the details…
I tried your suggestion previously. I still have to spend $100 to be able to use the files.
I do agree Libronix PBB format is not a good platform for the general public. For Logos charges an unreasonably high anneal fee for anyone who just want to read the PBB file! I believe PDF format is much more user friendly and can be a greater blessing to the public. Will any project be undertaken for converting the PBB into a much need PDF format in the near future?
if I had, or were about to, buy into the LOGOS user scenario these books, especially Thomas Boston, would be of great use and value. However, as a pensioner who has to watch pennies, they are inaccessible to me. I use ESword.
Have been investigating Logos. Expensive, at over $600 for the cheapest product that would allow me to read these excellent books it is waaaay beyond my reach. I will keep looking for another source for Thomas Boston.
I found his Complete works in pdf at Archive.org, here is the link: http://www.archive.org/search.php?query=creator%3A%22Boston%2C+Thomas%2C+1677-1732%22
Hope this helps
