Product Information

Manton at first gave up all idea of writing this book on Jude, when he found that Jenkyn had taken up the subject. But he afterwards changed his mind, saying, ‘I consulted with my reverend brother’s book, and when I found any point at large discussed by him, I either omitted it or mentioned it very briefly; so that his labors will be necessary to supply the weaknesses of mine.’
He did not omit much, as you will see in this 375-page book on the short book of Jude. As usual, he has many memorable comments:

''when seducers come in sheep’s clothing, it is that they may get a power to play the wolves better'' (verse 11, p. 270).

Manton is very jealous for the full honor of our Lord Jesus, as may be seen in these comments on Jude 4 (where a few corrupt manuscripts have omitted ''God'' after ''Lord,'' thus leaving Him as Lord, but not as God:

''I now come to the last part of their description, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ. Observe their sin, denying. The object, The Lord Jesus Christ, who is here described three ways: (1) By his absolute rule and supremacy, despothn monon, the only Lord, (2) By his essence, qeon, God. (3) By his headship over the church, kurion hmon, our Lord Jesus Christ'' (Jude, p. 155)

''This expository work has been reprinted from his works. He is very extensive'' (The Minister’s Library, Cyril J. Barber). ''Manton’s work is commendable. He is known to have been one of the chief of the Puritan brotherhood.''  (Commenting and Commentaries, C. H. Spurgeon).

Those who have seen both Jenkyn and Manton’s Jude, assure readers that Manton is great, as usual. He makes the book of Jude blossom forth and bear fruit in the soul and life of the reader, far more than those expositors who all too often appear to be twice dead and plucked up by the roots.

Manton (1620-1677) was a noted Puritan in the seventeenth century. He was a popular preacher. Besides his own pastorate, he shared a bi-weekly lecture with Richard Baxter on Sunday afternoons. He once called Baxter ''the greatest preacher in England. Though ejected in 1662 with 2,000, he continued to preach.

His expositions include this one on James, the most popular one; John 17, Jude, Psalm 119, Isaiah 53, and Matthew 25. 380 pages, blue linen hard cover
