Thomas Thorowgood (n.d.)

A Member of the Westminster Assembly

Today, many Christians are turning back to the puritans to, “walk in the old paths,” of God’s word, and to continue to proclaim old truth that glorifies Jesus Christ. There is no new theology. In our electronic age, more and more people are looking to add electronic books (ePubs, mobi and PDF formats) to their library – books from the Reformers and Puritans – in order to become a “digital puritan” themselves. Take a moment to visit Puritan Publications (click the banner below) to find the biggest selection of rare puritan works updated in modern English in both print form and in multiple electronic forms. There are new books published every month. All proceeds go to support A Puritan’s Mind.

Biography of Thomas Thorowgood:

Thomas Thorowgood (n.d.) received his education in the University of Cambridge, where he proceeded Master of Arts. He entered into the office of the holy ministry, and was afterward Bachelor of Divinity. On the 9th of July, in the year 1622, he, with several other Cambridge Scholars, was incorporated of the University of Oxford. Wood says, “that they were taken into the bosom of this University.”—In the troublesome times of the civil war, Mr Thorowgood espoused the cause of the Parliament, and was called to preach before them, and chosen one of the Assembly of Divines at Westminster; and is represented as constantly attending. In the Ordinance of Parliament for calling an Assembly of Learned and Godly Divines in 1643, he is said to be “Thomas Thorowgood of Massingham,” but in the year 1644, he is said to be Rector of Grimston, in the county of Norfolk.

He has published, Moderation Justified, and the Lord’s being at hand Improved; a sermon preached from Phil. iv. 5, at Westminster, before the Honourable House of Commons, at their Solemn Fast, Dec. 25th, 1644. 4to. pp. 38. Lond. 1645.—Jews in America: or, Probabilities that the Americans are of that Itace. With the Removal of some contrary reasonings, and earnest desires for effectual endeavours to make them Christian. 4to. pp. 139. Lond. 1650.

It has been said, that the American Indians have called themselves the children of Abraham, Isaac, and Israel. Mr Thorowgood grounds his conjectures on their own acknowledgment, their rites and customs, and their manner of speech, resembling those of the Jews, and the like.
