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.

Format: Hardcover
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!

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.

This review deals solely with the Kindle edition of the book(s), not with the actual content of Spurgeon's writing.

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.

Format: Paperback
During my years as a pastor and professor Treasury of David has been invaluable. Like most of Spurgeon's writings it is a collection of all the available and pertinent research on any given text. Furthermore, it helps in crafting application steps for the congergation. This one is so good that a fellow professor in Brussels used it for his daily devotional guide.

In his observation of the organizing principle of the Tanakh, whereby Westerman concludes (Elements of an Old Testament Theology, 1982) that the general theme of Torah being the deeds of God, and Nevi'im (The Prophets) being the words of God, he rightly describes Ketuvim (The Writings) under which Psalms fall, as the people's responses, or I should say, God-inspired people responses; covering the entire range of expressions of human emotions; fear, desperation, faith, hope, compassion, love, submission, indignation, repentance, sorrow, joy, and praise; the reality of life in a fallen world. Spurgeon laboriously and masterfully unearths these jewels from the rich treasure chests of David that the readers may enjoy, adore, cherish, worship, and love God in the display of his grace, power and glory through these expressions with solid theology, Christology and soteriology in mind because in some of the Psalms; Psalms 2, 8, 22, 45, 102, and 110, for examples, they undoubtedly speak of vision about the Lord Jesus Christ. If the readers are familiar with the format JC Ryle used in "Expository Thoughts on the Gospel," Spurgeon implements a similar one. He begins with introducing the theme of each Psalms, then continues with verse-by-verse exposition that attempts to bring the readers as close as possible to the affections, the state of mind and the vision of the Psalmist when he wrote that particular verse. In the next section called "Explanatory notes and quaint sayings", he includes commentary for each verse, though may not be exhaustive but definitely extensive, from other theologians; mostly the Reformers and the Puritans. The last part called "Hints to Preachers" consists of outlines to aid ministers for preaching purposes.Read more ›

This commentary covers each of the 150 Psalms in great depth, not only does Spurgeon cover each verse but he includes quotations from Puritans and other Reformed writers / preachers on virtually every verse of the Psalms. Not only does Spurgeon cover each Psalm but he gives hints to preachers, which are such they would help anyone teaching the Psalms, from Sunday School teachers to parents teaching children. I highly recommend this commentary, it is the best on the Psalms I have read.
