Synopses & Reviews
Charles Haddon Spurgeon, the "Prince of Preachers, " composed and polished "The Treasury of David "over the span of nearly half his ministry. This incomparable commentary and omnibus on the Psalms has been prized by Christians ever since.
Spurgeon's own commentary on every verse of the Psalms is extremely insightful, and by itself it would have been rich enough for posterity. But there's much more in "The Treasury of David." You'll find a wealth of illuminating extracts and quotes from hundreds of commentators--contemporaries of Spurgeon as well as the great Puritan expositors of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Preachers and teachers will appreciate the homiletical hints on almost every verse, concise sermon outlines, and provocative seed thoughts. Useful bibliographies and an index of authors offer more practical help.
Whether you're teaching on the Psalms, studying them for personal devotions, or simply intrigued by the writings of Spurgeon, you'll enjoy this splendid classic.
The Treasury of David is C.H. Spurgeon's magnum opus on the Psalms. The editor, David Otis Fuller, describes it as 'the whole realm of Christian truth.' All of the great doctrines of God's Word are dealt with by the masterminds of nearly every age since the first coming of Christ. Some of the nearly 700 expositors Spurgeon cites are Augustine, Chrysostom, Athanasius, Calvin, Luther, Bunyan, Matthew Henry and of course, Mr. Spurgeon himself. Here is a great source of golden insight into the Psalms that will endure through the ages.
This work has long been prized for its theological insight and practical help. To Spurgeon s own commentary on every verse of the Psalms he added quotes from hundreds of commentators to enlarge the reader s understanding of Scripture. Homiletical hints, along with sermon outlines and provocative seed thoughts, spark the preacher s imagination.
