Amazing Puritan Hard Drive Fact & Hint: A search, using the master index on the Puritan Hard Drive and the "Open Full Reader Search" (in Acrobat reader), for the word "prayer", returns 97,170 results (in 1,378 documents) — all in context and clickable (i.e., when you click on the individual search result the book opens to the page with your result highlighted)!
How helpful is that for learning more about prayer?
How helpful is that for learning more about anything you want about God from the very best Puritan and Reformed writings and sermons from throughout history?
Remember, in "Preferences" in Acrobat reader, to choose "Search" and set the "Maximum number of documents returned in Results" to the maximum of 10,000 (from the default of 500).
It is simple to set up and there is a tremendous amount of material available that will last me for years as I go through it all.
The search tools are, by themselves, well worth the price of the Puritan Hard Drive. It makes finding authors, topics and documents incredibly easy and fast. (The speed itself is amazing!) I also find the ability to copy from any of the (searchable - ed.) PDFs and paste into whatever .doc I happen to have open to be extremely useful.
I'm also glad to see that there are audio sermons/teachings (MP3s - ed.), as well as WMVs (videos - ed) from a variety of speakers and preachers as this provides a well-rounded approach to my own theology.
I've downloaded the entire drive to one of my computers that can handle it, and have it hooked up to a laptop.
The Puritan Hard Drive is a tremendous asset to my library and a huge time-saver for my own learning, preaching, teaching and counseling.
Thank you ever so much for doing this.

What you must understand, is that you have, in one resource (the Puritan Hard Drive - ed.), the vast wealth of God working through His chosen elect for hundreds of years.
The Puritan Hard Drive is a record of the true Church of God rising from the ashes of the Church burned to nothing by the late 1400's in the flames of man's greed for money and power, lust for position and license, and apathy -- in the spiritual murder of the eternal souls of millions of the lost, who were galvanized in their error by the Papal fairy tales of limbo/purgatory, indulgences, etc. The Reformation was about the true Church being "born again" from the ashes of righteousness which used to be, but had denigrated to a selfish and lustful perversion in the pride of the Roman Catholic Church.
What we must understand is that the Church is now in the same state as then. The new "Catholic Church" is the drug store, self-fix-it mentality and philosophy which has built an edifice of heresy, grounded in the long ago heretically defined Arminianism. The attraction is evident and replete with the selfish immediacy which pervades this society; a "Try God! He works!" marketing religion has arisen out of the Arminian heresy -- to fit right in with the culture of the quick fix, totally self-administered and open to all.
This nation's ignorance regarding the absolute sovereignty of God is a stumbling block of society destroying magnitude.The Puritan Hard Drive (by God's grace ed.) will instill the truth of the sovereignty, immutability, omnipotence, omnipresence, omniscience of our God and weed out the Arminian error, which states "Man is NOT totally depraved and WE can tell Jesus when He is allowed to save us, because we have that much 'pure righteousness' so as to identify and desire Him."
Arminianism is a VERY dangerous untruth which leads to SELF as the STANDARD FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS! For decades the elect have been kept in spiritual darkness for unnecessarily long periods of time; the common grace promoted by truth disseminated, which promotes a more ordered world even in the lives of the fallen, is lost to this error as the fallen amongst the believers suppose they are saved, after telling Jesus they will accept Him, unto license to indulge, just as the Roman Catholic Church was in error and people all over Europe sinned with suspect impunity, which they believed they had purchased via indulgences, from "God's financial representative" (i.e., the Papal Antichrist - ed.) here on earth.
The Puritan Hard Drive is a tool God will use to cast light upon this perverted and pride filled heresy which, because of the unfounded resistance against Reformation creeds and confessions (Westminster, Heidelberg, Dort, etc.), took hold as ORTHODOX DOCTRINE!
Satan is going to want to harm your operation in any way he can... you walk with your colleagues as warriors on the front line of a battle God has already won, but at the same time, a battle He allows to continue for His Glory and our edification unto the wisdom it will require to "judge the angels," as Paul disclosed. We have a BIG responsibility as those who carry His Image... He will teach those who He has destined to carry such as the Puritan Hard Drive more intense lessons as they will carry more responsibility in the time to come.
I want to reveal this resource to my compatriots in faith and try to add to your affiliate outlets... that the result will be more of God's chosen reached by this gift from our Father. Let's get this blessing from God to the hearts starving for its fruit!
