About the Author
Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-1892) served for 30 years at the Metropolitan Tabernacle in London. It is estimated that during his lifetime he spoke to 10 million people, and he became known as the "Prince of Preachers." His works fill over 60 volumes; and more than a century after his death, his sermons and devotional texts continue to challenge and touch Christians and non-Christians alike with their biblical grounding, eloquent text, and simple encouragement. Among his published books are "Lectures to My Students" (Hendrickson); "The Treasury of David" (Hendrickson), a devotional commentary on the Psalms; "All of Grace," the first Christian pocket-paperback published in the United States; numerous volumes of topical sermon collections; and the best-selling "Morning and Evening."

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!
We will see, as many other readers have seen that the greatest treasures of the ancient Israelite Kingdom was not the Temple that Solomon built, the gold and harem that the kings acquired nor even the Ark of the Covenant (that so many modern authors are speculating about) but these simple, unassuming songs that came from the worshipping heart of Israel's King David and his fellow worshippers. In this Treasury, we see a prayer for every occasion. We see the entire spectrum of the spiritual man's experience - penitence, courage, humiliation, power, confidence, exultation, doubt, weeping, laughter, awe, dread, fear and ultimately worship. Rightly did Faber exclaimed, "The Thought of Thee is almost prayer". This volume brings together the worship of David to Jehovah and Spurgeon to Jesus showing that they were both ultimately worshipping One same God. "Hear O Israel, the Lord thy God is One Lord".
The volume I'm reviewing here is an update of the original 7 volume set written in Victorian English. What we have here is the result of Roy H. Clarke's 10 year research into the life and writtings of Spurgeon. For those of you who distrust any update of a classic, rest assured that the work done here is exemplary work. Clarke has too much respect for Spurgeon to ever water down his words - every word by Spurgeon is here (only archaic words are replaced with modern English usage of the same). Clarke did not water down Spurgeon's words with the language of commerce but allowed the spaciousness, reverence and expansiveness of Spurgeon's English to be retained - and to speak afresh to us today in language that we can understand. Clarke removed most of the quotations from the other commentators in Spurgeon's original volumes and included only the most significant in this volume side-by-side with Spurgeon's own notes (something only done in this volume for the first time). Finally, the original notes of preachers are now presented in outline form according to the outlines for Spurgeon's own sermons (something that Roy Clarke himself spent his 10 years studying). Reading this volume makes me want to seek out the original 7 volume set (still in print) but I would say that even for those who have already read the original, this volume is still very valuable - for its dynamism, its freshness and as an aid by which we can listen to a man who listens to God.
The actual book is an excellent read for any Christian who wants to grow. It will deepen your faith, widen your understanding, and give you a greater love for our Lord Jesus Christ. As part of my morning devotions, I read Spurgeon's Treasury of David. I started with Psalm 1 and am up to Psalm 90, which is 51% of the way through the eBook. I have found myself feasting on God's word throughout this book. This was a great gift that the Lord, using Charles Spurgeon, gave to the Church. I wish more Christians would discover this blessing.
This is a great edition of Spurgeon's "Treasury of David." The text is well laid out in a simple, easy-to-read format. The text seems to be accurate to the original, so far as I have read, with no typographical errors or glitches that cheap editions often contain. There is a basic table of contents, to which are added links throughout each chapter to help with navigation. All in all, this is a very satisfying purchase, and I would recommend it to anyone with a Kindle, iPad, or other compatible reader.
still view the Bible as the Divinely inspired Word of God. He writes in heroic prose about the poetry of a master poet, David.
Who else would be able to write such a book?
If you want to really understand the psalms, Spurgeon is the place to start to complete your knowledge.
he works month on, month off, out of the country, so im not sure if he took any with him when he left. im hopeful that he will enjoy them.
I received a Father's Day gift, sitting on the back porch. Thank you very much!
Have you read them?
We have been in Ecclesiastes this summer so it will be nice to read his Dad's happier writings.
Love to you!
