Thomas Ford (1598–1674) was a Calvinistic, Reformed nonconformist divine, who sat on the Westminster Assembly as an active member.
The reformers and puritans wrote extensively on being reformed by God’s word. In the first part of this work, Thomas Ford introduces being prepared and settled for reformation. He will direct Christians to consider that before true Reformation can take place, there must not only be a willingness for it to ensue, but the heart of the recipient must be settled. Reformation is a matter of the heart.
The second part of this work is Ford’s, "The Times Anatomized." In his own day he desired, along with the Westminster Assembly, to see long lasting true reformation. In desiring this, he wrote this tract demonstrating 30 points of meditation of “current events,” that directly relate to the effectiveness of the Gospel in his own time.
