About Thomas Brooks

Thomas Brooks was born in 1608 and was an English non-conformist Puritan preacher and author. In 1625, he started his college studies at Emmanuel College and by 1640 he was licensed as a preacher. At Emmanuel College he was preceded by religious and colonial leader Thomas Hooker, John Cotton who was a principal among the New England Puritan ministers, and Thomas Shepard, an American Puritan minister and a significant figure in early colonial New England. The topics he covers and the way in which they are presented make his books ones to remember and are given in a thorough and passionate way. An associate of Brooks said: “He had a body of divinity in his head and the power of it in his heart.” From 1648-1651, Brooks ministered at the church of St. Thomas the Apostle in London and frequently preached in Parliament. Thomas Brooks died in 1680 and was buried in Bunhill Fields, which is London’s famous nonconformist cemetery.
