More About Richard Baxter & Baxter Richard
Richard Baxter (1615-1691) was a leader in the puritan movement in Britain. His successful ministry of Kidderminister, England was outstanding even in that period of eminent pastors and preachers, and his book The Reformed Pastor explains many of the principles he practiced there.
Richard Baxter was a prolific author, writing over sixty books. When he was dying, a friend comforted him with the reminder of the benefit many had recieved from his writings. He replied, 'I was but a pen in God's hand, and what praise is due to a pen?'
Reviews - What do customers think about Saints Everlasting Rest, The?
A healing balm for the soul. Dec 20, 2005
Dispels fear and reminds you what is really at stake. A lovely wonderful work.
A Devotional Classic Dec 14, 2002
I am in absolute agreement with the review below. As I set my heart upon the Lord in the early pages of this work, it brought healing tears to my eyes. This book helps open heaven to our hearts, and would be wonderful in meditative prayerful reading. it was written in 1650 by a man who in deep sickness thought he was dying about the glories of heaven, but went on for 40 more years and had one of the legendary ministries of England. A Puritan/Calvinist, but this work will be apprieciated by all who love the deeper Christian life.
A book for those who are tired of the first grade in faith Jan 14, 1998
It is time to stop playing church. Reading Baxter's book will challenge you to rediscover the wonders of the Lord through reflection and meditation. Taking captive our thoughts and making them obedient to Christ will make us strong in the faith and bring victory to our spiritual walks.
