"Derek Cooper has done the church a great service by making Manton's life and work accessible." --Daniel R. Hyde, Oceanside United Reformed Church

Thomas Manton
Derek Cooper
Thomas Manton (1620-77) was an influential Puritan preacher and an important figure in English Society. This book has two aims, to introduce readers in an engaging manner to Manton and, through this pivotal figure, to provide an introduction to the movement known as "Puritanism," concisely addressing its historical, social, and political contexts.
This was a good book about the life of Thomas Manton. While there are many puritans to choose from this one is most interesting because of preaching before the parliament and chaplain to two very different rulers. He was one of the lesser known puritans and yet not without merit on his own. This book was split into 3 parts: different phases of his life through key events, Manton's best-know work, his commentary on James and a selection of his work intended to showcase noteworthy sermons. This book provides little gems into his life from a previous biography and history of that time. It is worth the time to glean these gems.
I would like to thank Net Galley and P & R Publishing for allowing me to read and review this book in return for a free copy and I was never asked to write a favorable review by anyone.

I have found the treasure that is the writing and thought of Thomas Manton. In diving into his writings and finding so deep a wealth of thought for my own spiritual journey and so much immediately applicable thought for sermons and teaching as a pastor, I wanted to know more about Manton. This book is a needful resource for those who desire to study and apply the blessing of this once prominent Puritan Pastor. It is my prayer that through this and similar modern interest in Manton will revive the blessing of the works he has left behind for the Church and Reformed scholarship.
