Richard Baxter's The Saints' Everlasting Rest (1650) has long been recognized as one of the great classics of Christian devotion, and it is by this book that he is best known. The original work consists of some eight hundred thousand words-a clear example of Baxter's prolific pen-yet in Baxter's own life-time it reached twelve editions! First abridged in 1754 by John Wesley, in the Christian Library, five years later another abridgement was made by Benjamin Fawcett, and innumerable reprints of this have since been issued.

No change has been made in the text of the passages selected from the original work, and the spirit and language of Baxter have been so preserved that the movement of his thought and style not only remains unimpaired but stands out even more clearly.… (more)

this might be a new fave of all puritans... Baxter is always amazing. he cuts to the truth so carefully and thoroughly while offering so much hope and encouragement. he never holds back. this is NOT an ear-tickling book... but a gracious beckon to walk in the light and live in light of Christ's return... which can happen at any moment.
