Thomas Manton Books
Thomas Manton was born in 1620 in Somerset, descended from a long line of ministers. By 1635, he was already attending the University of Oxford, ordained by the age of 19. He pastored at churches, also serving as Oliver Cromwell’s chaplain. He strongly opposed the execution of Charles I and became a Royal Chaplain when Charles II was restored. In 1662, he chose to stand with his Puritan brothers as part of the Great Rejection, declining the Deanery of Rochester as a sign of solidarity. In response, he was imprisoned in his home, where he continued to preach, so trusted that he was sometimes given keys to his own jail. Thomas Manton books include the three-volume set, The Works of Thomas Manton, also available in individual volumes; By Faith, which are sermons based on Hebrews 11; James expositions; and a three-volume commentary entirely based on Psalm 119.
