Overview

The epistle of Jude speaks against false prophets, pseudo-Christianity, and those speaking against religion in general and Christianity in particular. The political and theological challenges of seventh-century England prompted Manton to write his commentary on Jude. This 376-page verse-by-verse commentary outlines the central themes, the historical significance, and the practical application of this important epistle. Volume 5 concludes with four lengthy sermons on holiness, baptism, salvation, and Scripture.

Praise for the Print Edition

How hard and successful a student he was, and how frequent and laborious a preacher, and how highly and deservedly esteemed; all this, and more, is commonly known.

Richard Baxter

Ministers who do not know Manton need not wonder if they are themselves unknown.

Charles Spurgeon

The fertility of his mind seems to have been truly astonishing. Every page in his books contains many ideas . . . I regard Manton as a divine of singularly well-balanced, well-proportioned, and scriptural views. . . . As an expositor of Scripture, I regard Manton with unmingled admiration.

J. C. Ryle

Perhaps few men of the age in which he lived had more virtues and fewer failings.

—William Harris

About Thomas Manton

Thomas Manton was born in 1620 in Somerset, England. He attended Oxford University, and graduated in 1639. At age 19, he was ordained as a deacon, and became the town lecturer of Collumpton in Devon. He began preaching at St. Mary’s Church in 1644, and became lecturer at Westminster Abbey in 1656. He also participated in the Westminster Assembly and preached before Parliament.

In 1662, Manton was forced to leave the Church of England for nonconformity. He was imprisoned—as were many Puritans—in 1670 for preaching illegally. He also crafted the Fundamentals of Religion with Richard Baxter during this time. Throughout his lifetime, Thomas Manton was a devoted follower and ardent defender of Reformed theology. He died in 1677.
