Original works by godly writers, tailored for the understanding of today's readers
For hundreds of years Christendom has been blessed with Bible commentaries written by great men of God who were highly respected for their godly walk and their insight into spiritual truth. The Crossway Classic Commentary Series, carefully adapted for maximum understanding and usefulness, presents the very best work on individual Bible books for today's believers.
Jude devoted his epistle exclusively to confronting those who had defected from the true biblical faith and the false teachers who had led them astray. Revealing the character of these godless men who changed the grace of God into a license for immorality, Jude calls the church to discernment. He also encourages the believers to persevere in the faith with prayer and the knowledge that the wicked will be punished.
Jude's urgent call to persevere in the truths of our faith amid false teachings proves relevant for every believer today. Thomas Manton's faithful insights will give pastors and students of the Bible a thorough handle on the key passages of this short epistle.
Thomas Manton was an English Puritan who in 1658, he had assisted Richard Baxter to draw up the Fundamentals of Religion. He was one of Oliver Cromwell's chaplains and a trier.
The Act of Uniformity 1662 saw Manton resign his living with many other Puritans in protest at this attack on their Reformed principles. Despite his lack of patronage, he continued to preach and write even when imprisoned for refusing to cooperate (1670).
Although Manton is little known now, in his day he was held in as much esteem as men like John Owen. He was best known for his skilled expository preaching, and was a favourite of John Charles Ryle, who championed his republication in the mid-19th century. His finest work is probably his Exposition of James, along with his volume on Jude and The Works of Thomas Manton.-Editorial Review.
