The Works of Jonathan Edwards Online!
When I read this yesterday, I had to immediately go and check it out for myself. This site is masterfully done and makes the works of Jonathan Edwards easily accessible and quickly researched. Here is a blurb from their site:
The Works of Jonathan Edwards Online is now available for use in a Public Beta phase. After thousands of hours of use, loads of email feedback from our initial Closed Beta team, and a great deal of internal QA testing, we are ready to make the Works of Jonathan Edwards Online available to the general public. The Works of Jonathan Edwards Online is a world-class digital learning environment which will make Jonathan Edwards' entire manuscript corpus available for the first time in history. It is an XML-based, fully-searchable, thematically, scripturally, and chronologically tagged interface in which anyone can explore the entirety of Edwards' written thoughts. Professor Ed Ayers, Dean of the College and the Graduate School at the University of Virginia writes that "this is wonderful in every way, especially with all the alternative ways of searching...you're not only making Edwards available in a profoundly new way, but you're also establishing a new standard for digital archives." The Works of Jonathan Edwards Online presently contains all of the Miscellanies (Edwards' private theological notebooks) and some two hundred sermons, many of which have never been published. We are presently preparing the contents of numerous additional volumes for the official launch of our "Essentials" package in 2007.Note: You will need to register to be able to access the works online. Also, it may be worth nothing that the "Jonathan Edwards Is My Homeboy" t-shirts are now available just in time for the holidays.

But in case you are one of the few who happen to not read his blog, I guess this hat trip would be a good directive.)
