Thomas Brooks (1608-1680) entered Emmanuel College, Cambridge, in 1625. He was licensed as a preacher of the gospel by 1640. After the Civil War, Brooks became minister at Thomas Apostle’s, London, and was sufficiently renowned to be chosen as preacher before the House of Commons in 1648. In 1662 he fell victim to the notorious Act of Uniformity, but he appears to have remained in his parish and to have preached the Word as opportunity offered. He went home to the Lord in 1680.
“Not only did the book help me in the area of dealing with Christians in my own soul—relating to doubt or assurance—it also helped me in application, in preaching. In fact, [Precious Remedies] may have helped me in application in preaching more than any other book I’ve ever read.” - Jennings Ligon Duncan III, American Presbyterian scholar and pastor
