How can we live lives that reflect Christ working in us, what are the practicalties involved? Fortunately the puritans didn't just lead spiritual lives they wrote about it too.

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 customers think about Life Of Faith?

Help for Christian Living  Apr 30, 2000
The Life of Faith consists of a series of articles mostly taken from various published books by A.W.Pink. The last two chapters were taken from 'The Studies in the Scriptures from which most of the authors books were compiled and published after his death in 1952. In the publihers introduction they assert that the best of Pink's writings are those in which he deals with practical aspects of the Christian life. This book falls in that category. There is much here to help the Christian in his daily walk with God. Mr.Pinks definition of 'progressive santication' on p.62 is outstanding,"If by progressive sanctification be meant a clearer understanding and fuller apprehension of what God has made Christ to be unto the believer and of his perfect standing and state in him;if by it be meant the believer living more and more in the enjoyment and power of that,with the corresponding influenceand effect it will have upon his character and conduct;if by it be meant a growth of faith and an increase of its fruits,manifested in a holy walk;then we have no objection to the term." The last chapter of the book 'Grace Preparing for Glory' has not been published previously in any of Pink's books. It deals with how the believer ought to be living in the light of Christ's second coming. On p.152 Mr. Pink instructs the reader as to what is produced in the life of one who has been a recipient of the grace of God; "Divine grace teaches its favoured recipients subjectively as well as objectively, effectually as well as theoretically. Grace in the heart prevents us from abusing grace in the head: it delivers us from making grace the lackey of sin. Where the grace of God brings salvation to the soul, it works effectually. And what is it that grace teaches? Practical holiness. Grace does not eradicate ungodliness and worldly lusts,but it causes us to deny them." I believe this book if read and taken to heart will under God's blessing promote Biblical holiness in the heart and life of the Christian reader.
