Thomas Mockett (or Mocket) (1602-1670), was a pastorally sensitive puritan divine during the era of Westminster.

Mockett’s work is a puritan example of Scriptural exegesis at its final points, engaging in a systematic explanation of what Puritanism considered practical theology. Practical Theology is the “application” of the biblical text, drawn from its doctrinal considerations, which pertain to the life and work of the individual Christian, and the body of the Christian church. Among the 27 topics covered, he teaches on private duties, family duties, Christian church duties, and duties to our rulers and neighbors. masters, servants and dealing with the poor, among other chapters.

This is one of the few known Puritan works on practical theology, and is a must read for any Christian desiring to have a sanctifying and practical interest in Jesus Christ.
