C H Spurgeon’s enduring classic, The Treasury of David, has long been regarded as the most comprehensive pastoral and inspirational study of the Psalms ever written. Originally released in seven volumes, Spurgeon’s work has been carefully abridged by David O. Fuller in this accessible, one-volume edition. As Herbert Lockyer observed, this edition gathers out “all the jewels” of this great work, presenting more than 4,000 quotes from notables such as Augustine, Calvin, Luther, Bunyan, Matthew Henry, and of course Spurgeon himself. Ideal for devotional reading or sermon preparation, The Treasury of Davidcontains “some of the greatest and grandest words of comfort and inspiration that have ever been penned” (from the preface).
Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-1892) was born in Essex, England. Converted at a young age, Spurgeon delivered his first sermon when he was only sixteen and went on to become a pastor the following year. Within a short time he was preaching to more than ten thousand people at each service/ His long ministry in London resulted in sixty-three volumes of published sermons and the founding of several orphanages, as well as an evangelical pastors’ college.
