Book Description

The works of Thomas Manton (1620-1677) present us with what was most characteristic in the ministry of the English Puritans: careful, solid, warm-hearted applicatory exposition of the Scriptures. Manton’s works are characterised by great pastoral concern and a balanced wisdom. Ryle said, ‘If ever there was an English divine who must be classed as a Puritan, that man is Manton…his works, like the ‘Pilgrim’s Progress’ deserve the attention of all true Christians…As an expositor of Scripture I regard Manton with unmingled admiration. Here, at any rate, he is ‘facile princeps’ [easily first] among the divines of the Puritan school…In days like these, I am thankful that the publishers of Manton’s Works have boldly come forward to offer real literary gold to the reading public.’
