The Reformed Pastor
Powerful -- not to be missed
Like Baxter's other works, this one isn't just an overview of Biblical duties, but a powerful call to action. Few writers have a way of conveying a sense of holiness like Baxter does, and if you're not just interested in learning about the Christian life, but rather in being shaken out of stupor, this book will do the trick. Also highly recommended, Baxter's The Godly Home.

Richard Baxter - a great evangelist writer
I have read this book few years back, I had lent my book to a friend but I will try to compose Richard Baxter statements here which is simple, true, striking, practical and also easy not to even to think about it.
He said that (not in exact words): Can you sleep even if you know that your loved ones friends or neighbor or the person next to you will go to hell not knowing or believing what you knew, and that if you had shared them what you knew & believed about your God, they will be saved?
Isn't it not full of impact kind of thought?
This book is about a character of a minister, it is not about a specific religion but it is about to be the man of God of true calling.
I learned heaps!

The "reformed" pastor can be a misleading title. But when you look at the lower case spelling of reformed you realize it has nothing to do with theology and everything to do with reforming the man of God. "Pastor" is also a description of what one does more than the title of what one is. This is an excellent book to use in discussing the ministry of anyone who knows what it is to be an "under shepherd".

As a student training for the ministry, this book has shown me new areas of ministry that I have never even thought of, let alone been taught. I am indebted to this book for opening my eyes to so vast a job that still needs to be done.
