Richard Baxter(1615-1691) was a prominent English churchman of the 1600s. He was a peacemaker who sought unity among Protestants, and yet he was a highly independent thinker and at the center of every major controversy in England during his lifetime. Born in Rowton to parents who undervalued education, Baxter was largely self-taught. He eventually studied at a free school, then at royal court, where he became disgusted at what he saw as frivolity. He left to study divinity, and at age 23, he was ordained into the Church of England.

Richard Baxter (12 November 1615 – 8 December 1691) was an English Puritan church leader, poet, hymnodist, theologian, and controversialist. Dean Stanley called him "the chief of English Protestant Schoolmen". After some false starts, he made his reputation by his ministry at Kidderminster, and at around the same time began a long and prolific career as theological writer.

My pastor recommended this book to me (an aspiring pastor). Richard Baxter himself was a 4 point Calvinist and a credobaptist. Even though I would disagree with some of his theological understandings his practical methods are worth investigating. After you get used to the flow, there's really a ton of great advice in here. I'm shocked at how many problems and scenarios are the same no matter where or when you minister. I wouldn't ascend to every single aspect of the teachings in this book as practice comes from doctrine but I have found many useful practices therein.

Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.

Andrew Belli examines Puritan pastor Richard Baxter on the 400th anniversary of his birth. Today marks the 400th birthday of Richard Baxter. It’s impossible to measure the influence of this English Puritan over four centuries. His works remain in print and are widely read, which shouldn’t surprise us. J. I. Packer considers him the most outstanding pastor, evangelist, and writer on practical and devotional themes that Puritanism produced, listing Baxter’s The Reformed Pastor (1656) as one of the top five books that have influenced him most. I first read The Reformed Pastor as a high school student aspiring to pastoral ministry.

Baxter was one of the most influential of the Puritans. Baxter’s autobiography is fascinating because you can read the thoughts behind his plans, actions and concerns

Baxter was one of the most influential of the Puritans. He recognised the value of writing about 170, which have sold in tens of millions since. The amazing thing is that whilst he was such a prolific auhtor he also exercised an exemplary pastoral ministry, preached to Oliver Cromwell and Chalres II, and was hounded by the authorities. Baxter’s autobiography is fascinating because you can read the thoughts behind his plans, actions and concerns. Not only do you get an insight into the Puritan mind but also a survey of the society.

Richard Baxter desired a life of quiet obedience but always seemed to find himself at the center of controversy. Methodist apostle Francis Asbury wrote in his diary in 1810, O what a prize: Baxter’s Reformed Pastor fell into my hands this morning. Ordained into the Church of England in the early 17th century, Baxter-while being drawn toward the growing Puritan movement-tried to avoid the increasing disputes between the Anglican church and the voices crying out for reform. And John Angell James, minister of Carr’s Lane, Birmingham wrote, I have made, next to the Bible, Baxter’s Reformed Pastor my rule as regards the object of my ministry.

Richard Baxter never received a higher commission than that of parish pastor to loom workers in Kidderminster. His devotional classic The Saints' Everlasting Rest was one of the most widely read books of the century. Still, he was the most prominent English churchman of the 1600s. He was a peacemaker who sought unity among Protestants, and yet he was a highly independent thinker-and at the center of every major controversy in England during his lifetime. When asked what deviations should be permitted from the Anglican Book of Common Prayer, he created an entirely new one, called Reformed Liturgy, in two weeks.

Baxter was eventually imprisoned by the notorious 'bloody' judge Jeffreys whom Baxter obviously exasperated "I see the rogue in your face" said Jeffreys during the trial, "I was not aware my face was so true a mirror" shot back Baxter.

During his pastorate at Kidderminster in England he and one assistant, were catechising 800 hundred families per year by taking them in groups of 14 or 15 families on Mondays and Tuesdays. On Thursdays, Baxter acted as an informal judge, settling forms of conscience. The effect on the community was such that 'the jails in Kidderminster were empty' at this time - yet he considered all this as secondary to his writing.

Baxter's autobiography is fascinating because you can read the thoughts behind his plans, actions and concerns. Not only do you get an insight into the Puritan mind but also a survey of the society.
