Richard Baxter

$13.99

Paperback

Name the town of which it was said, 'On the Lord's days there was no disorder seen in the streets, but you might hear a hundred families singing psalms and repeating sermons as you passed through...'

Who was the preacher who continually suffered so much in health that he described himself as 'a dying man preaching to dying men'?

During the storm days of the English civil war, why was Oliver Cromwell 'awakened into some passion' by what this man said to him?

Why did the infamous Judge Jeffries say of him, 'thou hast written books enough to load a cart, every one as full of sedition, I might say treason, as an egg is full of meat'?

The memorial to Richard Baxter, outside the church where he labored for 14 years reads as follows: Between the years 1640 and 1660 this town was the scene of the labors of Richard Baxter, renowned equally for his Christian learning and his pastoral fidelity. In a stormy and divided age he advocated unity and comprehension, pointing the way to 'The Everlasting Rest'.

Richard Baxter

Richard Baxter (1615-1691) entered the ministry at the age of 23 and ministered for 19 years in Kidderminster. Within the Anglican church, Baxter found common ground with the Puritans, a growing faction who opposed the church's episcopacyand was itself breaking into factions. His Practical Works have been collected in four large volumes, and his books Call to the Unconverted to Turn and Live, Reformed Pastor, Saints' Everlasting Rest and The Ministry we Need are still widely read.
