Richard Baxter believed that teaching was the minister's main task. Equally, he believed that Christians should regularly approach their pastor with their problems, and that ministers should regularly disciple their congregations. Baxter's main concern was that personal instruction in the Bible should be given to everyone, not just the young. It was this concern that brought The Reformed Pastor to birth. Faithfully presented here in a version edited for the modern audience, this book offers helpful, practical advice for those in leadership positions.

About Richard Baxter

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.

A timeless treasure. This edited version will thrill the reader with the privileges of a faithful pastoral ministry yet simultaneously reveal its challenges. Use it with an eager anticipation that the pastoral ministry will be transformed.

Harry L. Reeder, Senior Pastor and Teacher, Briarwood Presbyterian Church, Birmingham, Alabama

Well-worn copies of The Reformed Pastor have been the companion of faithful Protestant ministers since the 17th century. Church leaders will find this book a helpful resource for setting a biblical direction for their shepherding care of God's flock.

Charlie Wingard, Associate Professor of Practical Theology and Dean of Students, Reformed Theological Seminary, Jackson, Mississippi

The Reformed Pastor is powerful. We are far too satisfied with praise from our supporters while the churches decline and the world moves on. This valiant, sensitive attempt to make it even more accessible is most welcome.

Geoff Thomas, Conference Speaker and author, Aberystwyth, Wales

A most amazing work that should be read by every young minister ... many good men are but shadows of what they might be, if the maxims and measures laid down in that incomparable Treatise were strenuously pursued.

Philip Doddridge, (1702-1751) was a well known nonconformist pastor in Northampton, England. He ran a small college in his home for training men for the ministry.
