Product Information

Manton was one of the most eminent of the Nonconformist divines. He was born in 1620 and died in 1677. He was chosen to write -- the Epistle to the Reader: Especially Heads of Families -- of the famous Westminster standards. Received Episcopal institution in 1661. Resigned in 1662, on account of the Act of Uniformity (which among other wicked, Satanic enactments, its principal terms required a declaration of unfeigned assent and consent to everything contained in the Book of Common Prayer, re-ordination for those not Episcopal ordained — and, most evil of all, — renunciation of the Solemn League and Covenant. Knowing that the Puritans would not submit to such terms, the Authorities framed the Act to secure their expulsion —cf. Sermons of the Great Ejection by Iain Murray [Banner of Truth, reprinted 1962]).

He was a man of great learning and extensive reading, of a sound judgment, and had the art of reducing volumes of divinity into a narrow compass. According to Charnock, he was the best collector of sense of the age. Dr. Bates says , — clear judgment, rich fancy, strong memory, and happy elocution, met in him, and were excellently improved by diligent study — (James Darling, Cyclopaedia Bibliographica, 1854, pp. 1953-1954). Includes Manton's better known volumes, such as his commentary on James and Jude and his Sermons on Psalm 119, as well as a host of other practical preaching, teaching and Scriptural exposition. The 22nd volume contains two large indices (by subject and text).

Manton (1620-1677) was a noted Puritan in the seventeenth century. He was a popular preacher. Besides his own pastorate, he shared a bi-weekly lecture with Richard Baxter on Sunday afternoons. He once called Baxter ''the greatest preacher in England.  His expositions include this one on James, the most popular one; John 17, Jude, Psalm 119, Isaiah 53, and Matthew 25.   504 pages, blue hard cover
