Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

C. H. Spurgeon’s enduring classic, The Treasury of David, has long been regarded as the most comprehensive pastoral and inspirational study of the Psalms ever written. Originally released in seven volumes, Spurgeon's work has been carefully abridged by David Otis Fuller in this accessible one-volume edition. As Herbert Lockyer observes, this edition gathers out “all the jewels” of this great work, presenting more than 4,000 quotes from notables such as Augustine, Calvin, Luther, Bunyan, Matthew Henry, and of course Spurgeon himself. For devotional reading or sermon preparation, The Treasury of David  contains “some of the greatest and grandest words of comfort and inspiration that have ever been penned” (from the preface).

“A classic in its field. Richly rewarding, deeply devotional, and pleasingly relevant. Provides not only the thoughts of the great ‘Prince of Preachers,’ but also an abundance of quotations taken from the writings of those who have preceded him in the ministry of the Word.”

—Cyril J. Barber, The Minister’s Library

Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834–1892) was born in Essex, England. After preaching his first sermon at the age of 16, he became pastor of the church in Waterbeach at the age of 17. His most fruitful years of ministry were at the New Park Street and later the Metropolitan Tabernacle pulpit in London. Called the “Prince of Preachers,” he had more than 1,900 sermons published prior to his death.

David Otis Fuller (1903–1988) was a Baptist preacher known for his condensations of Spurgeon’s works. In addition to the Treasury of David, Fuller also edited Spurgeon’s Sermon Notes, and Spurgeon’s Sermon Illustrations, also published by Kregel Publications.

Within a short time he was preaching to more than ten thousand people at each service/ His long ministry in London resulted in sixty-three volumes of published sermons and the founding of several orphanages, as well as an evangelical pastors' college.

David Otis Fuller (1903-1988) was a noted Baptist pasor and author whose other compilations include Spurgeon's Sermon Illustrations and The Treasury of David.

Customer Reviews

Great resource for any teacher and pastor to prepare in study for the Psalms.
Seth McBee
Something about owning the hardback version - leafing through this is much more enjoyable than reading it on the Kindle (which I have as well).
Robert Allen
Spurgeon's vast knowledge of the Word of God is clearly seen in THE TREASURY OF DAVID and yet his passion shines through on every page.

Charles Haddon Spurgeon was England's Prince of Preachers in the nineteenth century. Today he is still one of the most well-known and loved authors in the English language - with more of his books and sermons in print (over 100 years) than any other English writer. However, I am not endorsing his works simply because of his popularity or any man's for that matter. I am recommending the works of this man because he is one who listens to God.
The Treasury of David is Spurgeon's Magnum Opus. If he had not written anything else apart from this masterful commentary on the Psalms, he would still be considered among the greatest Christian writers of all history. Students of the life of Spurgeon would know that he was not a strict academician. However, in all sense of the word, he was a man of learning who was acquainted with much of the scholarly issues of his times. Ultimately, he was a man who listen to God and labored for God's honor among men. This Treasury is the supreme monument to his 21 year labor.
In the compiling of this Treasury, Spurgeon read up hundreds of theological texts and commentaries (much of which was quoted among his own notes and comments). In the original edition, Spurgeon also included his "Notes to the Village Preacher" on every Psalm - showing that Spurgeon will always be very important to anyone who wishes to speak from the Pulpit. I believe, however, that the worth of this book is even more for the lay student (Spurgeon's heart beats for them the most throughout his life). He attempted to share with them the best scholarship of his time and to lead them beyond scholarship to the worship of David's God. Reading this volume led me into worship of the same God - and I will never recover from Him! I exult in Him!

The Bible says that in the abundance of [godly] counselors there is safety. Spurgeon has applied this wisdom in the Treasury of David. When you read this commentary, you find scores of Bible teachers and commentators addressing the truths of God's Word in the Psalms. Something very useful is that when commentators disagreed on an interpretation of particular verses, Spurgeon included the opposing views (assuming the views were not expressing cardinal error). With this commentary on your shelf, you eliminate the need to buy a bunch of different commentary sets on the Psalms. Spurgeon has put it together for you. After reading this, the only thing you'll need to do is study the Psalms for yourself (which is what God wants you to do anyway). But we all need help from time to time to think "out of the box." The Treasury of David will provide that opportunity.

I had these three volumes on my shelf for years. I referred to them as reference volumes. They are quite helpful for this, but I found them to be far more valuable when my wife and I began reading through these treasures devotionally.

We were in a particularly down time of our lives. Providentially, I picked up volume one, and we began reading this commentary aloud together. I cannot tell you how much God has comforted and grown us as a result of this devotional practice.

I recommend the Treasury of David, not merely as a commentary for use as a reference volume, but as one of the most beautiful devotionals ever penned. Take your time. Read meditatively, and be refreshed.

And, may I add, read the unabridged version. I have looked at the modern abridgment versions of this masterpiece, and I have been disappointed.

Format: Hardcover
Along with Spurgeon's beautiful facility with language, this also has a surprisingly easy format to follow. One need not search in vain for the verse that he is looking for. Nor will one run out of meat if preparing for the sermon or Bible study. Spurgeon has provided the best advice from the best teachers in the best volume on the Psalms. If you are not a pastor or teacher and you are looking for devotional material, this is the cream of the crop. Because the Psalms are prayers, and Spurgeon is the master of prayer, then your soul will be stirred as he speaks of prayer. Reader be blessed.

Charles Spurgeon was indeed the prince of preachers. No one in the history of the English speaking world has been able to match Spurgeon's sermons or his literary works. I thank God that the words and works of Charles Spurgeon are preserved for readers today.

This work on the book of Psalms is the most complete commentary I have ever seen. If Spurgeon would have done a similar commentary on the entire Bible then the Church would not need any other commentaries. Spurgeon gives us not only his own comments on the entire book of Psalms but he gives us outlines, quotes, and other views from various Puritan teachers. Spurgeon's vast knowledge of the Word of God is clearly seen in THE TREASURY OF DAVID and yet his passion shines through on every page. Oh for preachers to have the passion that Charles Spurgeon had and a love for the truth of the Scriptures to go forth!

Format: Kindle Edition
This is not, as the title implies, the whole work, but volume 2 of 6 with just some of the Psalms. The text contains scanning errors. There is no table of contents. There are good Kindle editions available for just a little more - I recommend looking at them rather than this.
