As for the text itself who am I to comment upon its validity? That would be a joke. Everybody familiar with expository teaching knows that Spurgeon was top drawer material. Of all of Spurgeon's work my favorites are: A Treasury Of David, Morning And Evening, and Lectures To My Students, in that order. The language is truly majestic in stature and flows so well as to keep one engrossed.
For the cost, portability, and navigation links this is a fantastic bargain. For you Spurgeon readers out there the appropriate question would be - if you have a Kindle why would you NOT get this? A home run by an outfit called "Niche Publication" - never heard of it but they sure did great on this publication.
The Treasury of David was and remains Spurgeon's magnum opus. Spurgeon himself noted in the introduction his love for the book of Psalms and his passion for working through them. Spurgeon often battled gout while serving as a pastor and this, especially at the end of his life, kept him out of the pulpit sometimes for months. He would then labor in the book of Psalms. Spurgeon noted that the Psalms were his heart since there we find not only passion for God and His Word but also the honesty of a David who cries out that God has forsaken him. How often have we all experienced that in prayer? Spurgeon himself often faced one crisis in ministry after another and he found delight in psalms such as Psalm 70. Spurgeon's commentary on Psalm 22 and 23 are full of weeping and praise to the Savior.
Overall this is very good work at an excellent price. I read this book while doing my devotional reading in the book of Psalms. You'll want to have Spurgeon's work near as you study the Psalms.
I use this in preparation for teaching as well as my personal devotions. Spurgeon's pastoral heart comes through in his commentary and is one of the reasons this collection is one of the most read commentaries of the Psalms of all-time.
I really appreciate his "Explanatory Notes and Quaint Sayings" by other commentators and the "Hints to Preachers" that are at the end of each Psalm. The "Hints to Preachers" breaks down the passage several different ways by theme and structure, showing different perspectives you can take while preaching or meditating on the passage.
This, like most of Spurgeon's work, is a timeless work. The Kindle edition is very navigable and friendly to use.
And at this price pastors and those who want to seriously study the bible have no excuse not to get it!
I almost rated this down to four stars, but definitely NOT because of content, but for editing in this kindle version. I have both the print text and the kindle version. Both were helpful. The print version is two large volumes, each 2 1/4" thick with small print! The kindle version was much easier to read, but numerous errors. These are usually easy to figure out, such as "tie" when it should be "the." Sometimes, though, I was very glad to have the print version to refer to. Sometimes I wasn't sure if it was an archaic word or an error. That was when the print version came in handy. Although this was an annoyance, I STILL recommend this book! If you love the Psalms, it will give you a deeper understanding of the meaning. If you just can't really get into the Psalms, it will give you a deeper understanding of the meaning! It will also give you a love for the Psalms that you might never have had before! Just read it!!!!
