The Treasury of David Vol 1
Charles H. Spurgeon (1834-1892) was one of the most renowned preachers of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, as well as a prolific writer of evangelical works that have impacted the Christian Church over the past two centuries. His Treasury of David is his classic work on the book of Psalms, which was originally published within the pages of his The Sword and The Trowel magazine over a 20-year period from 1865-1885, and then published in its entirety in a classic seven-volume set in 1885.
The Treasury of David is quite unique in its composition as Spurgeon spent countless hours in libraries searching through the annals of eminent Christian authors throughout Church history for the choice comments he included with each verse of every Psalm—such as, Jonathan Edwards, Augustine, Thomas Brooks, Martin Luther, John Bunyan, Athanasius, Josephus, John Calvin, Thomas Goodwin, Richard Baxter, William Jay, John Trapp, Richard Hooker, William Gurnall, and many more. Upon completion of this work, Spurgeon comments, “The Book of Psalms instructs us in the use of wings as well as words".
