"The most outstanding pastor, evangelist and writer on practical and devotional themes that Puritanism produced." J. I. Packer

^^An English Puritan, Baxter was an "exegete" of culture, a memorable preacher, and a prolific writer. He is known for his practical advice on applying Scripture to all areas of life and his emphasis on the "heart work" involved in doing everything to the glory of God - whether one is pastor, pilgrim, or parent.

^^The Puritans knew that they would not be able to deal with man's problems if they did not understand the source from which all these problems stem. Therefore, they sought what the Bible had to say about the heart in order to properly confront the difficulties that flow from it. This edition of the most complete abridgment of Baxter's 23-volume work is a treasury of carefully selected sermons and essays that combine the principles of communion with God and the specifics of obedience to God, including:

  • ^^The Saints' Everlasting Rest ^
  • The Divine Life^
  • A Treatise of Conversion^
  • A Call to the Unconverted^
  • Now or Never^
  • Directions and Persuasions to a Sound Conversion^
  • Directions for Weak Distempered Christians^
  • The Character of a Sound, Confirmed Christian^
  • The Mischiefs of Self-Ignorance and the Benefits of Self-Acquaintance ^
  • Dying Thoughts
^^Baxter's work is a welcome and helpful addition to any personal or pastoral library. ^

Meet the Author

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.
