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. Also included is a 'Life of Richard Baxter' by W Stuart Owen.
