Manton was "one of the most eminent of the Nonconformist divines." 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 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]). 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). A full list of everything included in this massive set is at: http://www.swrb.com/catalog/M.htm .
