Richard Baxter was a memorable preacher, irrepressible teacher, and prolific writer. He was no ivory-tower theologian; his was a practical faith, one that applied Scripture to all areas of life. His emphasis on the “heart work” involved doing everything to the glory of God—whether one is pastor, pilgrim, or parent. These teachings were compiled and published in 23 volumes, titled Practical Works.
This reprint of the most complete abridgment of this magnificent work is a treasury of carefully selected sermons and essays that combine the principles of communion with God and the specifics of obedience to God.
The most outstanding pastor, evangelist and writer on practical and devotional themes that Puritanism produced.—J. I. Packer
