Ambrose, Isaac a Presbyterian minister, born in Lancashire, 1592, and educated at Oxford. He officiated as minister in Preston, and afterward at Garstang in Lancashire, from which he was ejected in 1662 for non-conformity. He was a man of great learning, which he adorned by sincere and ardent piety. He died in 1664. Amid the labors of an active ministry he found time to prepare several works of practical religion for the press. He was the author of The First, Middle, and Last Things, viz. Regeneration, Sanctification, and Meditations on Life, Death, and Judgment, etc. But his book entitled Looking unto Jesus is the one which has most of all received, and longest retained, the award of popular favor. Both these, with other writings, may be found in his Complete Works (Dundee, 1759, fol.).
