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.


"Once a shining star in the Puritan firmament, long-forgotten Thomas Manton fully deserves the renewed appreciation that he receives here."

—J. I. Packer

"This delightful and well-written book will surely be a springboard for any who want to grapple with Manton proper."

Carl R. Trueman
