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 (1990)

Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-1892) served for 30 years at the Metropolitan Tabernacle in London. It is estimated that during his lifetime he spoke to 10 million people, and he became known as the "Prince of Preachers." His works fill over 60 volumes; and more than a century after his death, his sermons and devotional texts continue to challenge and touch Christians and non-Christians alike with their biblical grounding, eloquent text, and simple encouragement. Among his published books are "Lectures to My Students" (Hendrickson); "The Treasury of David" (Hendrickson), a devotional commentary on the Psalms; "All of Grace," the first Christian pocket-paperback published in the United States; numerous volumes of topical sermon collections; and the best-selling "Morning and Evening.
