Manton's Works for Free

The complete works of Thomas Manton (1620 - 1677) have been digitized and made available for free online. Manton was one of the Oxford trained Puritans who, with John Owen, served Cromwell during the Lord Protectorate. His works were published in 22 volumes in 1870, and the digitized version for download reflects the age. His "Treatise for the Afflicted" is one of his better known pastoral works that has been a cure for many distraught souls.

Don't be alarmed if the text looks faint; often you are seeing the next page through the paper. This is one of the better facsimiles I've seen. You have several options for reading (including .PDF, .RTF, and .txt), and may I recommend Foxit Reader? Its just like Adobe, except healthier for your computer (and free!). (9 out of 10 moms recommend fox it...)

As with all internet resources, I never know how long things like this will be up. I'd recommend downloading all 22 volumes and keeping them on your computer. They are roughly ~70 MB each, so it won't take a toll on your machine. Enjoy the reading.

Hey, thanks for the heads up. I've studied his commentary on Jude a little bit in the past, and have really appreciated it.

Transplanted from the artic blight of Minnesota to the sunny paradise of SoCal, I am attending school and learning to say "dude." I like to think of myself as equal parts surf rash, Batman, heavy metal, Levinas, poetic license, and reformational. Other than creating blund blogs, I enjoy reading, sporting, and socializing with serious and funny people.

How does Rowling and the "Harry Potter" series stack up against Tolkien and "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy?
Rowling is the new dreamweaver. She is reigniting literature and fantasy as we know it.
Tolkien is the undisputed favorite. We have not yet seen a match for his philogistic skill.
This is apples and oranges. You might as well compare ping pong with Halo. Two different animals.
Rowling wins, but only by one quidditch goal.
Tolkien still stands, but only barely. free polls
