(1608–1680) was an English non-conformist Puritan preacher and author.
Much of what is known about Thomas Brooks has been ascertained from his writings. Born, likely to well-to-do parents, in 1608, Brooks entered Emmanuel College, Cambridge in 1625, where he was preceded by such men as Thomas Hooker, John Cotton, and Thomas Shepard. He was licensed as a preacher of the gospel by 1640. Before that date, he appears to have spent a number of years at sea, probably as a chaplain with the fleet.
