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.

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!Read more ›
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.
