The User Guide for the Library of Appalachian Preaching is a Google Sheet that can be searched, sorted, and downloaded for offline use.
At the moment, Thompson has only one sermon in the Library; it has a Guide of its own so the records will be complete. It includes the title, sermon text, date and place the sermon was preached, and so on. This information is available in the master list of sermons as well.
