"The renowned Thomas Manton (1620-1677), whose writings have long been prized by thousands, was known first and foremost as a great preacher. In a day when good preaching is sorely lacking, we need the reprint of his Complete Works, in which twenty of his twenty-two volumes are sermons. These sermons are the legacy of a powerful preacher devoted to the systematic teaching and application of God's Word. Whether he is expounding the Lord's Prayer, Psalm 119, Isaiah 53, James, or Jude, Manton presents us with the best that English Puritans had to offer in careful, solid, warmhearted exposition of the Scriptures." - Dr. Joel R. Beeke, author of MEET THE PURITANS

"This valuable set of Puritan writings only becomes available once every few decades when an adventuresome publisher decides to invest a great deal of time and money to offer this gift to Christ's church. It has only been reprinted twice in the last 150 years, not counting the current edition. Do not fail to obtain a copy of this set, and think of giving one to your pastor as an act of gratitude for his faithfulness. And then be a reader of these wonderful books, not a collector only." - Dr. Don Kistler, The Northampton Press

"While less theological than Owen or Goodwin, and less thematic than Flavel or Watson, Manton excels in exposition. One never fails to find him dealing with the text. His homiletical divisions are both enlightening and entertaining. One finds himself saying, 'Of course, why didn't I think of that?' Among the Puritans he is the best confluence of sense and sententiousness. While not modern, his comments, unlike the moderns, are a happy mix of bones, muscles, and heart." - Pastor Tom Lyon, Providence Reformed Baptist Church, University Place, WA

"I have been blessed tremendously by Manton in electronic media. There have been many times, however, that I longed for the books. There is a tactile need to touch those things we admire: we hug our spouses, hold our children, shake hands with friends and read our books. I look forward to a deeper acquaintance with a friend and mentor, Mr. Thomas Manton. SGCB is commended for their forsight and follow-through." - Dr. Mike Renihan, pastor, Heritage Baptist Church, Worcester, MA

C.H. Spurgeon wrote, "While commenting upon the One Hundred and Nineteenth Psalm, I was brought into most intimate communion with Thomas Manton, who has discoursed upon that marvellous portion of Scripture with great fulness and power. I have come to know him so well that I could choose him out from among a thousand divines if he were again to put on his portly form, and display among modern men that countenance wherein was a 'great mixture of majesty and meekness.' His works occupy twenty-two volumes in the modern reprint: a mighty mountain of sound theology. They mostly consist of sermons; but what sermons! For solid, sensible instruction forcibly delivered, they cannot be surpassed. Manton is not brilliant, but he is always clear; he is not oratorical, but he is powerful; he is not striking, but he is deep. There is not a poor discourse in the whole collection: he is evenly good, constantly excellent. Ministers who do not know Manton need not wonder if they are themselves unknown."
