Item description for The Saint's Everlasting Rest (Practical Works of Richard Baxter) by Richard Baxter & Thomas B. Erskine...
1758. This volume is considered one of the most valuable parts of Baxter's practical works. He wrote it when he was far from home, without any book to consult but his Bible, and in such an ill state of health as to be in continual expectation of death for many months. At this time, he fixed his thoughts on this heavenly subject. Heavenly rest is a subject in its own nature so universally important and interesting, and at the same time so truly engaging and delightful, as sufficiently accounts for the great acceptance of this book.

More About Richard Baxter & Thomas B. Erskine
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?'
Richard Baxter was born in 1615 and died in 1691.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Saint's Everlasting Rest (Practical Works of Richard Baxter)?
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.
