Overview

Background of The Treasury of David

This work was first published in weekly installments over a twenty-year span in the London Metropolitan Tabernacle's periodical, The Sword and the Trowel. Completed sections were released volume by volume, until the seventh and final volume was released in 1885. Within a decade more than 120,000 sets had been sold. The Treasury of David is a superb literary achievement. Eric Hayden, pastor of the Metropolitan Tabernacle a century after Spurgeon's ministry began there, calls this work "Spurgeon's magnum opus." Spurgeon's wife said that if Spurgeon had never written any other work, this would have been a permanent literary memorial.

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. Whether you're preaching or teaching on the Psalms, studying them for personal devotions, or simply intrigued by the writings of Spurgeon, you'll enjoy this splendid classic.

Meet the Author

Charles Haddon (C.H.) Spurgeon (19 June 1834 – 31 January 1892) was a British Particular Baptist preacher. Spurgeon remains highly influential among Christians of different denominations, among whom he is known as the "Prince of Preachers". He was a strong figure in the Reformed Baptist tradition, defending the Church in agreement with the 1689 London Baptist Confession of Faith understanding, and opposing the liberal and pragmatic theological tendencies in the Church of his day.

In his lifetime, Spurgeon preached to around 10,000,000 people,[1] often up to 10 times each week at different places. Spurgeon was the pastor of the congregation of the New Park Street Chapel (later the Metropolitan Tabernacle) in London for 38 years.[2] He was part of several controversies with the Baptist Union of Great Britain and later had to leave the denomination.[3] In 1857, he started a charity organization which is now called Spurgeon's and works globally. He also founded Spurgeon's College, which was named after him posthumously.

Spurgeon was a prolific author of many types of works including sermons, an autobiography, commentaries, books on prayer, devotionals, magazines, poetry, hymns and more.[4][5] Many sermons were transcribed as he spoke and were translated into many languages during his lifetime. Spurgeon produced powerful sermons of penetrating thought and precise exposition. His oratory skills held throngs of listeners spellbound in the Metropolitan Tabernacle and many Christians have discovered Spurgeon's messages to be among the best in Christian literature.

    Finally, this gem of a book is available for Nook!

    This review is for the electronic edition of Treasury of David, published by OSNOVA.

    I am very happy to start building up the collection of Spurgeon's books on my Nook. This book is truly a gem for any Christian and for Spurgeon's fans in particular. I have also bought OSNOVA's Nook edition of Spurgeon's Feathers for Arrows and the collection of Spurgeon's sermons, known as New Street Pulpit. All are a wonderful find, and I highly recommend them for the high quality of formatting and navigation!

    A must-have for serious study of the Book of Psalms

    Spurgeon is among my favorite Christian authors, and his exposition on the Book of Psalms has no peers! For Spurgeon, The Treasury of David was the work of all his life, and it shows. If anyone is interested in the in-depth studies of the Psalms, Treasury is a perfect commentary to pick.

    As for the book itself, I got mine in the electronic format from Osnova and read it on Nook Touch. I love the fact that the publisher has built in the Bible right into the Treasury, so I can use the hyperlinks to go straight to the verse under discussion, and then back to the Treasury. This is such a time-saver!
