	archive are available at
	http://ccel.wheaton.edu/ThML

1/7/97	Added 14 sermons by Jonathan Edwards, from
	http://www.dallas.net/~trigsted/jedwards.htm

	What happened to my link to the George Whitefield sermons? Did
	I delete it accidentally? Or did I forget to add it? I don't
	know.  Anyway, there's a linke to the Whitefield sermons now.

1/6/97	Added a new sermon from Jonathan Edwards --The Importance and 
	Advantage of a Thorough Knowledge of Divine Truth, from Craig
	Woods.

1/5/97	Added to the "more books" page: Harriet N. Cook, The

	Citizen, Adam Clarke, Entire Sanctification, A. B. Bruce,
	Training of the Twelve.

	Added link from ccel main page to "The Life of the late Rev. 
	Mr. John Flavel, minister of Dartmouth".

1/4/97	Added a new sermon from Jonathan Edwards -- Christ's Agony,
	contributed by Craig Woods.  I also made an index page for 
	Edwards' sermons.

1/2/97	I've had the complete set of Wesley sermons for some time now,
	the ccel home page pointed to the wrong index page.  That's
	been corrected.

12/28/96 HTML versions of Boehme's Supersensual Life and Law's Spirit
	of Prayer and Spirit of Love.  

12/19/96 Added a link to Dante's Divine Comedy.  Added Andrew

	Added links on the "more books" page to some creeds,
	catechisms, confessions, a church order and a liturgy.

	Added A sermon by Flavel, "Christ Altogether Lovely".  I found
	it elsewhere on the web, and now I've forgotten where, but you
	can find it yourself with a search engine.

12/10/96 Added links in the main CCEL page to Cassian's Conferences, 
	Augustine's City of God, which were already present in the 
	Early Church Fathers series.

	Also added nicer indexes for the Whitefield sermons.

12/02/96 Loaded up the Online Bible CD-ROM that was given to me and
	copied all the files to ftp://ccel.wheaton.edu/OnlineBible/win
	It's not really set up yet for convenient access -- I'm not 
	sure the files are presented in such a way that you can 
	really install and use them.  I'll work on this -- in the 
	mean time, if you want to experiment, you're on your own.

	The CD-ROM is designed for windows 3.1 and has a program that 
	claims to "fix most of the problems people have been having 
	using this software under windows 95."

	Contents include: Thompsons Chain Ref, Strongs, Greek and
	Hebrew lexicons, 12 english translations, 30 non-english
	translations, Greek and Hebrew bibles, commentaries including 
	Concise Matthew Henry, Geneva notes, Robertson Word Pictures, 
	John Gill's exposition, Archaeological material, etc.

	Be warned: the entire package is a couple of hundred MB, but
	you don't need to download or install all the modules.

	HELP WANTED.  If someone would be so kind as to create a 
	readme file with instructions for selecting modules, 
	downloading modules over the internet and installing, I'd 
	appreciate it.  I haven't tried the software, so I can't give 
	help at this point.

11/23/96 Added @History of the Methodist Episcopal Church, 
	a 4-vol set.

11/19/96 Added a link to the works of Josephus, to the "other
	resources" page.

11/15/96 Added the last three volumes of Gibbon's Decline and Fall, in
	in text format, from David Reed, to the "other works" page.

11/11/96 HTML version of Mysticism by Underhill and Theologia
	Germanica.  These were converted automatically by rtftohtml 
	3.01; some bugs in the conversion configuration files have to 
	be worked out yet. But I can just type "make" to re-do the 
	conversion.

11/9/96 Master and Man, by Tolstoy, from the Tolstoy Library,
	http://users.aol.com/Tolstoy28/tolstoy.htm

11/1/96	Lilith, by George Macdonaled, in nicely formatted HTML, from
	an unknown contributor.

10/29/96 Added vol. III of Gibbon's Decline and Fall, in text format,
	1533k, from David Reed, to the "other works" page.

10/19/96 Sermon by Jonathan Edwards, "God's sovereignty in the
	salvation of men," contributed by Patrick Robinson
	. (I also changed the name of another
	of Edwards' sermons to "The end of the wicked contemplated"
	from "The Torments of the Wicked in Hell, No Occasion of Grief
	to the Saints in Heaven" -- the latter was really a subtitle.

10/17/96 Vol. II of Gibbon's Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, 
	text format, 1789k, from David Reed. Added to the "other 
	works" page.

10/16/96 Mysticism, by Evelyn Underhill, in RTF format.  I'll convert
	it to HTML and text when I get a chance.  1889k.

10/11/96 Edward Gibbon's Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, Vol I
	of six, in a nicely formatted text file.  From David Reed  
	.  The link is on the "more books" 
	page.	More volumes are said to be forthcoming.

10/9/96 Three more computer-generated HTML volumes of the Early Church
	Fathers:  NPNF1-05, NPNF1-12, NPNF2-12.

10/7/96 A new version of Theologia Germanica.  I've added preface,
	translator's notes, footnotes, etc.  Only available in RTF
	at this time, HTML and Text when I can get rtf2html to handle
	it.

	Winhelp versions of the reaming volumes of the ECF series.

10/3/96 WinHelp versions of the first 6 volumes of the ECF series,
	from Maged Kamel.  The rest are forthcoming.

	Added two works by Jonathan Edwards: Treatise on Grace, and a
	sermon entitled The Torments of the Wicked in Hell, No
	Occasion of Grief to the Saints in Heaven. Contributed by
	Craig Woods.

10/2/96	A nice HTML edition of the first volume of the Early Church
	Fathers series by Brian Guest, and programmatically-generated
	HTML versions of NPNF2-01, NPNF2-03, NPNF2-04, NPNF2-07, and
	NPNF2-10. Progress on the Early Church Fathers!  

9/26/96 Sermon by Jonathan Edwards: "God Glorified in Man's
	Dependence," from the Banner of Truth Works volumes,
	contributed by Craig Woods.

9/19/96 Four volumes of the Early CHurch Fathers in HTML.  Three of
	were done programmatically -- ANF-01, ANF-04, and NPNF1-02.
	One of them (NPNF2-11, Cassian et al) is a wonderful work 
	by Liz Knuth  complete with 
	footnotes, proofreading, and some additions. The footnotes 
	are even linked to the actual cross-reference, where possible!  

9/12/96	HTML version of NPNF1-02, Augustine's City of God and On
	Christian Doctrine.

9/6/96	Added a sermon by Jonathan Edwards, "A Divine and Supernatural
	Light, immediately imparted to the soul by the spirit of God,
	Shown to be both scriptural and rational doctrine".  Edwards' 
	epistemology was far more accomodating to religious belief,
	far deeper in its understanding of faith as the evidence of
	things unseen, and (I think) far better than what is commonly 
	found today. But a revolution in modern epistemology is underway...

9/3/96	Added Plotinus' Enneads and James' Varieties of Religious
	Experience, from a PD source.  These texts are indexed on the
	secondary list mentioned below.

8/27/96 Re-arranged a bit; made a separate list of books that are not
	on the classics list (http://ccel.wheaton.edu/all.html).  Moved a
	couple of works to the not-quite-classic list (or classic and
	relevant but not Christian or not of the right sort for other
	reasons).  Add links to a couple of off-site books to the 
	secondary list, e.g. a Spanish critical edition of all of the 
	works of John of the Cross and Theresa Avila.
	
	Eventually I'll set up a database of references so I can automatically
	construct various lists; for now, this not-quite-ideal setup.
	
8/13/96 Updated the FAQ. I'm on a partial vacation this month and I'll
	be very busy with teaching in September and October.  I do 
	have some books in the works, though--Calvin's commentaries 
	on Acts and Romans, a volume of selections of Calvin's 
	commentaries, and Evelyn Underhill's classic study "Mysticism".

8/10/96 Removed Tozer's Pursuit of God, after someone sent me a 
	message saying that it is not in the public domain.

7/31/96 Added about 10 books by Tolstoy, from The Tolstoy Library, 
	http://home.aol.com/Tolstoy28, email: [email protected]
	Also some bibliographic and critical essays, which are
	not in the CCEL page at the moment but can be accessed by FTP.

7/29/96	Added D.L. Sayers' Catholic Tales and Christian Songs, scanned
	by John Ockerbloom, [email protected]

	Added HTML versions of Guyon's Autobiography.  Tried out 
	RTFtoHTML 3.01--which looks great.  I've also added HTML

	list. (The all books list is not yet reachable by any links.)

	be re-created without too much difficulty, though.

	go on-line soon.

10/7/95 CCEL moved to Wheaton College.  It is being served up by 
	a (mostly) dedicated Sparcstation 5.  Current access rate
	is approaching 10,000 accesses per day; I hope that the 
	new server will support a 10-fold increase in access rate,
	which should be sufficient for the near future.  Thanks
	to Wheaton College for providing the server.

	"http://www.cs.pitt.edu/~planting/music/". At this point it is
	mainly a skeleton for evaluation--would it be useful to you?
