I would like to see Manton move forward.  It's been stuck around 50% for a while now.

To the Baptists (reformed or otherwise) "The Complete Works of Thomas Manton" should be of interest (not because he was a Baptist but because of what Spurgeon said about him).Smile

To those with interest in the puritans he should be of interest because he was one of them.

To those who appreciate Owen he should be of interested because his biography on Christian Ethereal Library states that "in his day he was held in as much esteem as men like John Owen".

To those who preach he should be of interest because the volumes contain almost 1000 sermons

To the expositors he should be of interest because he was a great one himself.

 Anyone else interested in giving his woks a push?

I've been in since 11/10/2010. This one really needs a push.

To have Baxter, Ryle, and Spurgeon on the short list of those who praise Manton's work, I'd say George is on to something!

Yes. Thanks George for your input in trying to get more attention for Manton's work.
