Thomas Manton on the Spiritual Life

528px-Thomas_MantonMan, this guy can write. I was blown away by the eloquence. Here’s just a little taste of Thomas Manton on Psalm 119:113:

There are in men two great influencing affections, love and hatred; one serves for choice and pursuit, the other for flight and aversation. The great work of grace is to fix these upon their proper objects; if we could but set our love and hatred right, we should do well enough in the spiritual life.
