Charles Spurgeon calls this "(a) rich volume, dropping fatness. Invaluable to the preacher. Having read and re-read it, we can speak of its holy savor and suggestiveness. We commend it with much fervor" (Commenting on Commentaries). Spurgeon also commented, "Dickson is a writer after our own heart, for preachers he is a great ally" (Johnston, The Treasury of the Scottish Covenant, p. 314). The Treasury of the Scottish Covenant further notes, "An English merchant had occasion to visit Scotland about 1650. On his return he was asked what news he brought, when he replied: 'Great and good news! I went to St. Andrews, where I heard a sweet majestic looking man--Blair was his name--who shewed me the majesty of God. After him I heard a little fair man, named Rutherford, and he shewed me the loveliness of Christ. I then went to Irvine, where I heard a well-favoured, proper old man, with a long beard--his name was David Dickson--and that man shewed me all my heart.'"
