More About Thomas Manton

Thomas Manton Born in Laurence Lydiard, Somerset, Manton was educated locally and then at Hart Hall, Oxford where he graduated BA in 1639. Joseph Hall, bishop of Norwich, ordained him deacon the following year. He never took priest's orders, holding that he was properly ordained to the ministerial office. He was then appointed town lecturer of Collumpton in Devon. After a profitable few years, he was called to the parish of Stoke Newington in Middlesex in the winter of 1644-1645, and began to build a reputation as a forthright and popular defender of Reformed principles. This led to his participation in several key events, such as the Westminster Assembly and confession publication, and his being asked to preach before Parliament on several occasions.

After ten years in Middlesex, he was appointed to the living of St. Paul's in Covent Garden. Again he became very popular and continued to exercise a wide influence on public affairs, calling for the restoration of Charles II in 1660. For his part in this he was offered the Deanery of Rochester by the new monarch, but he refused on conscience grounds. He had disapproved of the execution of Charles I. In 1658, he had assisted Richard Baxter to draw up the Fundamentals of Religion. He was one of Oliver Cromwell's chaplains and a trier.

The Act of Uniformity 1662 saw Manton resign his living with many other Puritans in protest at this attack on their Reformed principles. Despite his lack of patronage, he continued to preach and write even when imprisoned for refusing to cooperate.

Although Manton is little known now, in his day he was held in as much esteem as men like John Owen. He was best known for his skilled expository preaching. His finest work is probably his Exposition of James.

Thomas Manton was born in 1620 and died in 1677.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Comprehensive Explanation of Important Book of the NT  Dec 26, 2008
I have read several Crossway Classic Commentaries and found each of them to be very useful. The latest one covers the book of James and is written by Thomas Manton. Like others in this series, it is a classic. Personally, I have found James to be one of the most practical, yet difficult books in the New Testament to follow. James includes a litany of pragmatic guidance to Christians, some which almost seem to contradict key Protestant theological concepts - such as salvation by grace, alone. Martin Luther and several others have struggled to determine where the practical advise that James includes should be placed in relationship to other key Christian doctrines.

Given the fact that James contains only five chapters, this commentary is actually pretty long (over 350 pages). But, it is well worth the read since Thomas Manton explains in great detail his understanding of each chapter and verse. I learned a lot from this commentary and feel that I have a much better feel for the book of James. Although this commentary was written hundreds of years ago, the content is still very relevant. Modern believers, like myself, need to know what James means when he writes about controlling our tongue (words), and putting our faith into action.

If you are a Christian who would like to gain a much deeper grasp of the book of James, and the wisdom contained within it, then I highly recommend this commentary.
