Finding Books That are in print

Directories exist for books in braille, books on CD-ROM, CD-ROMs in print, books on tape, sermons on tape, free e-text, books-on-demand, giant print books, and so forth, and so on. See your Reference Librarian.

Amazon.com Books offers the following information: books-in-print, the International Standard Book Number (ISBN), (the Amazon.com 10-digit ASIN number is usually the ISBN), Publisher, reviews by Amazon.com staff, and reader's comments, other works by the same author (click on the author's name), other works purchased by individuals who bought the subject book, and so forth and so on. Also, used books may be purchased and sold at amazon.com.
The International Standard Book Number (ISBN). Books published before 1966 may not have an ISBN number unless they have been reprinted after 1966. The Amazon.com 10-digit ASIN number may be either the International Standard Book Number or the Amazon Standard Identification Number (ASIN). If the book has a 10-digit ISBN, then Amazon uses it as their ASIN number. If the book does not have a 10-digit ISBN then Amazon.com assigns a 10-digit, all-caps, alpha-numeric ASIN (a word of caution, sometimes the same edition of a book may have multiple ASIN numbers within the Amazon.com database). "The Amazon Standard Identification Number (ASIN) is a product identification number used by Amazon.com and its partners. Despite the name, it is not a 'standard' outside of Amazon.com, but is used consistently for referencing products within the Amazon network of sites. The words 'Amazon Standard' should therefore be read as 'standard internal to Amazon,' rather than 'external standard initiated by Amazon'."

*Martin, Robert P., A Guide to the Puritans: A Topical and Textual Index to the Writings of the Puritans and Some of Their Successors Recently in Print, 546 pages, ISBN: 0851517137 9780851517131.
"I owe an enormous debt to the Puritans, the most prolific and accurate expounders of the biblical principles upon which the Reformation was built. Their concern for vital godliness in every area of the Christian's experience has rightly earned for them the title 'theologians of the Christian life.' Their writings are a rich banquet table loaded with solid nourishment for God's people. . . .
"There are many more qualified to index the Puritans than I. Had someone more acquainted with the Puritans' works and more schooled in their history and theology undertaken this project, the end product would have been vastly superior. My primary qualification is that I have been willing to undertake the task. I will not be surprised if those who use this volume find many things which could be done better, especially in the topical index. My hope, however, is that those who find flaws will favor me with their suggestions for improvement, so that if future editions come from the press, the people of God will be served better than at present.
"In determining which writers and works to index, I have been guided and restrained by several principles. First, I have deliberately chosen a broad definition of the term Puritan. Instead of the narrow ecclesiastical sense, i.e., of referring only to those in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries who desired reformation in the national church of England, I am using the term Puritan in the broader religious sense of those advocating the experimental, Calvinistic religion which the Puritans exemplified. Moreover, I have cast my net even farther to take in those who have looked to the Puritans as their nearest theological kin; thus including such men as Archibald Alexander, Charles Hodge, B.B. Warfield, W.G.T. Shedd, John Murray, and many other modern Puritans.
"Second, with reference to older writers, I have limited my efforts to recently republished works. Many valuable works, of course, have not reappeared in our day, but are available only in libraries and private collections. I have not tried to include any such items. A comprehensive index of the entire body of Puritan writings would be a wonderful resource, but it is quite beyond my ability to undertake such a project.
"Third, though I have tried to include all the older works currently available, I have indexed only a sampling of works from living writers. Some may question my choices or judge that I have overlooked important new works and authors in the Puritan mold. I sincerely regret overlooking any volume worthy of notice. My only defense is that my knowledge of living authors is much less than my awareness of the proven guides of the past. For the most part I have limited new works to those published by the Banner of Truth Trust, confident that these works have passed through a fine grid of review, and would not bear the Banner label if they were not clearly in the Puritan tradition.
"Fourth, doubtless some users of this index will be disappointed that several important precursors to the Puritans are missing. For example, except for the notice of a few well-known works, Calvin and Luther are not indexed. The same is true of Augustine. The contribution of these men to reformed and Puritan thinking cannot be overestimated. Including their works, however, was not possible, given my present constraints. I regret this greatly.
"Among nineteenth-century figures, the most prominent absence is that of C.H. Spurgeon. Spurgeon certainly is worthy of a place in this work; however, since a textual and topical index of his sermons already exists, I chose not to duplicate that work here.
"In our own century, the ministry of D.M. Lloyd-Jones has produced a large body of useful material in the Puritan tradition; however, unlike his contemporary, John Murray, no collection of Dr. Lloyd-Jones's writings is yet available. Much that Dr. Lloyd-Jones preached is now published in commentary form (e.g., his expositions of the Sermon on the Mount, Romans, Ephesians, etc.), and is not included in this index because of my decision not to index commentaries. I have indexed the Doctor's topical works that were available to me. Those wanting more information on Dr. Lloyd-Jones's writings should consult the bibliography found at the end of volume two of Iain Murray's biography. [LLOYD-JONES, D. MARTYN: THE FIGHT OF FAITH, 1939-1981 -- compiler]
"The Scripture Index was easy to produce. Where a specific text (or texts), of scripture served as the basis for a sermon or treatise, it is included in the Scripture Index at the appropriate place. This does not mean, however, that every work listed in the Scripture Index contains a detailed exegesis of the text to which it is attached. Often the Puritans used texts as the starting points for topical sermons or series. What follows is not so much an exposition of the text but an exposition of a theme which the text epitomizes. Such sermons do not always answer to the needs of the technical exegete, but they often serve as catalysts for doctrinal and practical observations on the text.
"A few whole commentaries are found in the Scripture Index. These are present only because they are included in an author's collected writings. Many more commentaries could have been included; however, those appearing before 1870 are catalogued already in Spurgeon's COMMENTING AND COMMENTARIES. Many fine commentaries in the Puritan tradition also have appeared since 1870; but I have made no effort to produce what would in fact have been an update of Spurgeon's work.
"The Topical Index was extremely difficult to construct. Two problems constantly intruded themselves into the process. First, when I began, no list of topics was ready at hand. My method therefore was to compile the list of topics as I went along. The end product doubtless is less accurate than if the topics had been set from the beginning. Second, Puritan sermons are not always capable of being reduced to one or two key ideas. Frequently the Puritans ranged across a wide field of related themes in a single sermon. Where this occurred, properly placing the sermon in the Topical Index was difficult. In most cases I was guided by either the author's title or his doctrine summary, i.e., a statement expressing the theme of the sermon. I have tried to exercise as much care as possible in indexing topically; however, those more familiar with individual sermons or treatises perhaps will question my decisions. Again, I hope that observations which may improve this work will be communicated to me. . . . I have included comments with some entries. It was not possible to do this for every entry. For the most part, I did this where I felt that a word was needed to clarify the emphasis of a given work. . . ." -- Robert P. Martin in the Preface, August 1996, Seattle, Washington

Finding Books That are out of Print

Bear in mind that superior books often do not sell and go out of print. It is rewarding to search for them, and to find them.

*Darling, James (1797-1862), Cyclopaedia Bibliographica: A Library Manual of Theological and General Literature, and Guide to Books for Authors, Preachers, Students, and Literary Men. Analytical, Bibliographical, and Biographical, 1854, 5245 pages. Available on the Puritan Hard Drive. Available on Reformation Bookshelf CD #12.
"An indispensable set for authors, researchers, serious students of Scripture, librarians, ministers, collectors, rare book dealers, etc. Contains much information that is either unavailable elsewhere or would have to be gleaned from several scattered volumes. Its ten volumes total 5245 pages. A phenomenal, theological, bibliographical resource of staggering comprehensiveness. The first section of this extremely rare set is a huge bibliography, organized by authors alphabetically. Most known Biblical and theological publications, to the author's day, are listed. Includes not only English listings, but Latin, French, and German also. The second part is a topical bibliography categorizing items under the headings of Universal Knowledge, Theology (including the major commentaries, sermons, articles and studies for just about every verse in the Bible), a listing of Scripture texts (Hebrew, Greek, and Latin), and an extensive index. The Morning Post calls this massive work 'the most copious, accurate, and well-arranged catalogue of works in theological and general literature which has as yet been published.' Brownson's Review noted that 'for practical utility we know of none that surpasses or approaches it.' Finally Bell's Messenger states, 'No clergyman or antiquarian should think it needless to possess a copy of this work. It will smooth many a day's hard toil, by diminishing the labour of research, pointing as it does, in an instant to works which it might have taken weeks, if not months, or years, to search after.' Don't miss this darling of a help, which will ease and aid all your theological studies!" -- Publisher

Mount Olive Tape Library of Reformed Theology
This collection has been in the custody of the Greenville Presbyterian Seminary since 2006. It appears (September 8, 2016) that the Media Center at the Seminary have digitized practically none of the audio cassette and video tape address.
"The following listing was developed by George Calhoun, the founder of Mt. Olive Tape Library, over the course of some thirty years. This catalog reflects the personal quest of Mr. Calhoun for a balanced education in Reformed Theology. The speakers herein have been scrutinized for their faithfulness to the Bible. These tapes will enable students to pursue the study of Reformed theology at a minimum of financial expense."
"FOR YOUR INFORMATION . . . [from the introduction to the Mount Olive Tape Catalog -- compiler]
"The tapes included in this catalog are recordings of sermons and lectures given by various pastors, theologians, Bible teachers, and conference speakers who confess adherence to the broad perspectives of historic Reformed theology. We have diligently tried to screen all the materials as to their basic commitment to the Biblical perspectives reflected in the Reformed creeds and confessions.
"Since, however, no human interpreter of God's Word is infallible, it is the prayer of those responsible for sending forth these tapes that all who listen to them will cultivate the spirit of the Bereans, who 'searched the Scriptures daily to see whether these things were so.'
"Also, it should be emphasized that the tapes included in this catalog have been evaluated in terms of their basic content as they were originally given, and the inclusion of them in this catalog should not be construed as an unreserved approval of the men who originally gave them. Christians grow in grace and knowledge with the passing of time, yet it must be recognized that some turn aside from the norms of Scripture. It is our hope, therefore, that no one will attach himself to any of the men whose tapes are included in this catalog on the basis of the tapes alone. We are all commanded to be discerning toward those who would instruct us in the faith.
"Finally, it would be a tragic abuse of the intent in providing these sermons and lectures should they in any way cultivate a party spirit so clearly condemned by the Apostle Paul in 1 Corinthians 3. Paul reminded the Corinthians that all things were theirs -- Paul, Cephas, and Apollos included. We, too, may recognize that the various servants of Christ whose voices are heard on these tapes are God's gifts to us and that we are to follow them only insofar as they follow Christ and the clear teachings of His holy and infallible Word! Since not all men have the same gifts, learn to drink from the gifts of many men -- not just one fountain."

National Union Catalog, Pre-1956 Imprints: A Cumulative Author List Representing Library of Congress Printed Cards and Titles Reported by Other American libraries (London: Mansell, 1968-1980). 658 volumes.
"This invaluable work can be extremely helpful to the scholar researching retrospective material. It is organized by author or, if there is no author by title, so there is no subject access. Each entry consists of a photocopy of the card catalog card for a book or serial. Full bibliographic information is included on this card, as is a list of libraries that hold the book. Many of the titles in this catalog can not be traced through OCLC. This makes the National Union Catalog or NUC a very important source if you are trying to locate a title published before 1956 in this country. The retrospective cumulation, often referred to simply as Mansell, includes only pre-1956 imprints, as its title suggests. "The later volumes, published from 1958-1978 in five year compilations can be more challenging to use. It is important for the user to keep in mind that the catalog registers books as they were acquired. That is the books listed in the compilation for 1963-1967 list those titles acquired by libraries in the United States during those years, regardless of their date of publications. Since materials from this period are often not available in online catalogs this is a useful source for those seeking U.S. library holdings of specific titles. This is a main entry catalog and given that the forms of entry used for many institutions have changed over the years using this source effectively does require a knowledge of library practice."

Post-Reformation Digital Library via Junius Institute
"The PRDL is a project of the Junius Institute for Digital Reformation Research of Calvin Theological Seminary. . . .
"The Institute is conceived as a forum to promote research into the Reformation and post-Reformation periods, covering the 16th to the 18th centuries, through the use of digital tools, skills, and resources. The Junius Institute will house the Post-Reformation Digital Library (PRDL), an electronic database covering thousands of authors and primary source documents on the development of theology and philosophy in these centuries. . . . Late medieval and patristic works printed and referenced in the early modern era are also included. . . .
"With the click of a few buttons, researchers can now download digital files with source material from hundreds of years ago. Before recent large-scale digitization efforts . . . access to these kinds of sources had been difficult, costly, or even impossible. In some cases sources were simply lost or unknown. (Nota bene: this site is limited insofar as it aims at only those works of the authors that have been digitized. In the vast majority of cases this will not be representative of the author's work as a whole, and is no substitute for due bibliographic research.)"

Presbiterianos Reformados (Spanish translations of Reformed and Covenanter works.
"¡Aquí se encuentra el único lugar en la red dónde se ofrece los Estándares originales de Westminster en completo y sin alguna enmienda!
"Las metas de este sitio son tres.
"Primero, para proclamar el evangelio a todo el mundo, para que el mundo sepa que solamente hay salvación en Cristo y no en otro u otra cosa. El ser humano es corrupto y peca constantemente, el único que puede librarnos de tal corrupción que trae la condenación eterna es Jesucristo el Hijo de Dios, nuestro Rey y Señor. "Entre los cuales también todos nosotros vivimos en otro tiempo en los deseos de nuestra carne, haciendo la voluntad de la carne y de los pensamientos, y éramos por naturaleza hijos de ira, lo mismo que los demás . . . aun estando nosotros muertos en pecados, nos dio vida juntamente con Cristo . . . Porque por gracia sois salvos por medio de la fe; y esto no de vosotros, pues es don de Dios; no por obras, para que nadie se gloríe." Efesios 2:3, 5, 8-9.
"Segundo, para establecer y edificar el pueblo y la Iglesia de Cristo, de lengua española, en la fe verdadera encontrada en la doctrina calvinista, la expresión doctrinal del protestantismo más pura y fiel a la Palabra de Dios. También para buscar la unidad que existe en el amor establecido en la Verdad de la Palabra de Dios con nuestros hermanos en Cristo. No simplemente en amor, pero también en la Verdad. Unidos en una sola doctrina (como Dios ha mandado), en una sola forma de adoración hacia Dios (como Dios ha mandado), en una sola forma de gobierno-eclesiástica (como Dios ha mandado) y en una sola forma de disciplina (como Dios ha mandado). "No traspases los linderos antiguos que pusieron tus padres." Proverbios 22:28. "Así dijo Jehová: Paraos en los caminos, y mirad, y preguntad por las sendas antiguas, cuál sea el buen camino, y andad por él, y hallaréis descanso para vuestra alma." Jeremías 6:16
"Tercero, para llamar a nuestros hermanos protestantes, especialmente los que son presbiterianos y reformados, que regresen a la fe verdadera del protestantismo y que dejen por un lado las doctrinas que han adoptado de la Iglesia de Roma. Muchos protestantes han olvidado la doctrina que Dios dio a su Iglesia por medio de Su ministros que levantó en los siglos 16 y 17, tal como Juan Calvino, Juan Knox y los teólogos/ministros de la Asamblea de Westminster (del siglo 17) y la Iglesia de Escocia. La mayoría de presbiterianos y calvinistas de hoy dicen que siguen la doctrina de Calvino, de Knox y de los ministros de la Asamblea de Westminster cuando la realidad es diferente, esto se debe a la ignorancia de los escritos de estos ministros y por la corrupción doctrinal que ha entrado a la Iglesia de Cristo en varios niveles. "Pero en aquello a que hemos llegado, sigamos una misma regla, sintamos una misma cosa. Hermanos, sed imitadores de mí, y mirad a los que así se conducen según el ejemplo que tenéis en nosotros." Filipenses 3:16-17 "¿Andarán dos juntos, si no estuvieren de acuerdo?" Amós 3:3
"Nuestra oración es que su visita sea de mucho ánimo y edificación. Le invitamos a escribirnos para cualquier pregunta o comentario. Al navegar en nuestro sitio, encontrará sermones de pastores presbiterianos pactantes que hallará de mucha inspiración. O tal vez nuestro patrimonio doctrinal bíblico le sea de gran interés. Si desea más información de nuestra iglesia y doctrina bíblica, comuníquese con nosotros y le responderemos con mucho gusto."
