Manton was one of the most eminent of the Nonconformist divines. He was born in 1620 and died in 1677. He was chosen to write -- the Epistle to the Reader: Especially Heads of Families -- of the famous Westminster standards. Received Episcopal institution in 1661. Resigned in 1662, on account of the Act of Uniformity (which among other wicked, Satanic enactments, its principal terms required a declaration of unfeigned assent and consent to everything contained in the Book of Common Prayer, re-ordination for those not Episcopal ordained - and, most evil of all, - renunciation of the Solemn League and Covenant. Knowing that the Puritans would not submit to such terms, the Authorities framed the Act to secure their expulsion -cf. Sermons of the Great Ejection by Iain Murray [Banner of Truth, reprinted 1962]). He was a man of great learning and extensive reading, of a sound judgment, and had the art of reducing volumes of divinity into a narrow compass. According to Charnock, he was the best collector of sense of the age. Dr. Bates says , - clear judgment, rich fancy, strong memory, and happy elocution, met in him, and were excellently improved by diligent study - (James Darling, Cyclopaedia Bibliographica, 1854, pp. 1953-1954). Includes Manton's better known volumes, such as his commentary on James and Jude and his Sermons on Psalm 119, as well as a host of other practical preaching, teaching and Scriptural exposition. The 22nd volume contains two large indices (by subject and text). Index of the 22 volume set :
