Product Description

Product Description

About This Edition of The Treasury of David:
• Optimized for Kindle
• Active Table of Contents - Quick and easy navigation by volume and Psalm.
• Beautiful Illustrations - 10 original illustrations from the book of Psalms.

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.

About the Author
Charles Haddon (C.H.) Spurgeon (June 19, 1834 – January 31, 1892) was a British Baptist preacher, still known as the "Prince of Preachers". In his lifetime, Spurgeon preached to around 10,000,000 people, often up to 10 times a week at different places. His sermons have been translated into many languages. Spurgeon was the pastor of the New Park Street Chapel in London for 38 years. He was part of several controversies with the Baptist Union of Great Britain, and later had to leave that denomination. Throughout his life, Spurgeon suffered from depression and other mental illnesses. In 1857, he started a charity organisation called Spurgeon's which now works globally. He also founded Spurgeon's College, which was named after him after his death.

Spurgeo not only takes the psalm apart and gives inspiring teaching, but gives notes for preachers to use. Lots of clear teaching.

5.0 out of 5 stars A treasury for today 8 Dec 2012

If you are looking for a book to help you get more out of the psalms, I can recommend this one. I use it alongside a daily devotional focusing on the psalms, and find Spurgeon's words have relevance today.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ten stars! Spurgeon's Magnum Opus now Kindle friendly and good navigation without locking up your device. 29 April 2011
By Kersi Von Zerububbel - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I had another Kindle edition of this work and it was great but it kept freezing up my Kindle whenever I did a search. Finally I had to return it and on a hunch got this one. So far it is great. I can do all my searches without locking up my device. The Table Of Contents is fine with links AND sub-links within each topic. That helps a lot. So far I am at around page 130 corresponding to my hard copy and I have had no problems.

As for the text itself who am I to comment upon its validity? That would be a joke. Everybody familiar with expository teaching knows that Spurgeon was top drawer material. Of all of Spurgeon's work my favorites are: A Treasury Of David, Morning And Evening, and Lectures To My Students, in that order. The language is truly majestic in stature and flows so well as to keep one engrossed.

For the cost, portability, and navigation links this is a fantastic bargain. For you Spurgeon readers out there the appropriate question would be - if you have a Kindle why would you NOT get this? A home run by an outfit called "Niche Publication" - never heard of it but they sure did great on this publication.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spurgeon's Magnum Opus at a Great Price 17 May 2012
By Seeking Disciple - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I own the complete three volume set of The Treasury of David in hardback form. It is good, solid reading but it can become tiresome as you work through the heavy volumes of the books. Now you can get the complete Treasury of David from the Kindle in a great price and the weight of the books is gone!

The Treasury of David was and remains Spurgeon's magnum opus. Spurgeon himself noted in the introduction his love for the book of Psalms and his passion for working through them. Spurgeon often battled gout while serving as a pastor and this, especially at the end of his life, kept him out of the pulpit sometimes for months. He would then labor in the book of Psalms. Spurgeon noted that the Psalms were his heart since there we find not only passion for God and His Word but also the honesty of a David who cries out that God has forsaken him. How often have we all experienced that in prayer? Spurgeon himself often faced one crisis in ministry after another and he found delight in psalms such as Psalm 70. Spurgeon's commentary on Psalm 22 and 23 are full of weeping and praise to the Savior.

Overall this is very good work at an excellent price. I read this book while doing my devotional reading in the book of Psalms. You'll want to have Spurgeon's work near as you study the Psalms.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must Have for Preachers and Serious Bible Readers 1 July 2012
By Kevin P. Halloran - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The Treasury of David by Spurgeon is a commentary that is great for both pastoral and personal use.

I use this in preparation for teaching as well as my personal devotions. Spurgeon's pastoral heart comes through in his commentary and is one of the reasons this collection is one of the most read commentaries of the Psalms of all-time.

I really appreciate his "Explanatory Notes and Quaint Sayings" by other commentators and the "Hints to Preachers" that are at the end of each Psalm. The "Hints to Preachers" breaks down the passage several different ways by theme and structure, showing different perspectives you can take while preaching or meditating on the passage.

This, like most of Spurgeon's work, is a timeless work. The Kindle edition is very navigable and friendly to use.

And at this price pastors and those who want to seriously study the bible have no excuse not to get it!

3.0 out of 5 stars a bit disappointing 6 Sep 2012
By Karen S. Stuart - Published on Amazon.com
Charles Spurgeon's masterpiece work, The Treasury of David, is an irreplaceable gem to have in one's library. However, in this Kindle version, I was disappointed to realize that the entire Psalm is not first provided (as it is in the hard copy versions).

Because it simply goes into the commentary, it is challenging for the reader to pick up on the Psalm itself as it comes up in bits and phrases (and not always in its entirety anyway) in the course of insightful but lengthy commentaries. I find that I have to also have a copy of the Psalms with me in order to use it well.

I read reviews about this version to make sure I was getting the authentic Treasury of David. They all indicated that it was exactly the same as the hard copy. It is not.
I am happy to report that the actual commentary itself is the same, but eliminating the written Psalm does a huge disservice to the integrity of this original work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Insight! 10 Sep 2012
By WarriorForJesus - Published on Amazon.com

This should be in every Christian's library. Spurgeon's exposition of the Psalms is a grand masterpiece! Along with the exposition, the reader is also treated to "Quaint Sayings" and "Hints for the Village Preacher."
As with any Scripture commentary, the student of God's Word should study the Word for him/herself prior to being influenced by another. Then, compare their findings with the commentator.
Spurgeon' s ToD is very helpful in studying the awesome prayer/hymn book that God has given us in Psalms.
