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.
About the Author
The Bible says that in the abundance of [godly] counselors there is safety. Spurgeon has applied this wisdom in the Treasury of David. When you read this commentary, you find scores of Bible teachers and commentators addressing the truths of God's Word in the Psalms. Something very useful is that when commentators disagreed on an interpretation of particular verses, Spurgeon included the opposing views (assuming the views were not expressing cardinal error). With this commentary on your shelf, you eliminate the need to buy a bunch of different commentary sets on the Psalms. Spurgeon has put it together for you. After reading this, the only thing you'll need to do is study the Psalms for yourself (which is what God wants you to do anyway). But we all need help from time to time to think "out of the box." The Treasury of David will provide that opportunity.
