The User Guide for the Library of Appalachian Preaching is a Google Sheet that can be searched, sorted, and downloaded for offline use.
This part of the Guide provides information about the 3 Appalachia-related sermons included in the Collection. It includes the author, title, scripture text, date and place the sermon was preached (if known), and so on. This information is available in the master list of sermons as well.

The Preface describes the 23 preachers in this collection as “distinguished ministers of their respective denominations”: “Methodist, Baptist, Presbyterian, and Cumberland Presbyterian” (pp. v, vi). The proposed “female college” would be built in Kentucky, but the ministers came from around the nation; only the 3 ministers with verifiable ties to Appalachia are included in the Library.
