The Christian Manual: Of the Life and Manners of True Christians
Author: John Woolton
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
Publication Date: 1851
This edition of John Woolton’s The Christian Manual was reprinted by the Parker Society to demonstrate the application of Reformation principles “to the practical duties of individual and social life.” Woolton’s treatise on practical Christian living clearly reflects Calvinist influences as he exhorts Christians to, “declare to the world their faith by their deeds, their words by their works, and their profession by their conversation.”
John Woolton (1553–1593) was bishop of Exeter from 1578 until his death.
