In his introduction, “Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.” This charge from Acts 20:28 only is the beginning of a solemn and overarching task to be personally involved and disciple all of your congregants.

Incredibly convicting, intellectually stimulating, and pastorally invigorating. This is a must-have for any who sense the call for ministry. ( )

Reprinted from the 5th ed. (1862) of the abridged edition (first publ. 1829) ( )

This book has great things to say about pastoral self care, pastoral vocation and the priority of catachesis. I do think Baxter is a little dour and I would question how some of his methodology would translate, but I am wowed by the sacredness in which he views his vocation and the attentiveness he had towards his flock.

Good content, but as as these were taken from sermons and speeches that Baxter gave in the 1600's, can be a little difficult to read through. Highly recommend it for the content though, especially for pastors that don't understand their calling as shepherds very well. ( )

Dedication
First words
Let us consider, What it is to take heed to ourselves.
I. See that the work of saving grace be thoroughly wrought in your own souls.  Take heed to yourselves, lest you be void of that saving grace of God which you offer to others, and be strangers to the effectual working of that gospel which you preach; and lest, while you proclaim to the world the necessity of a Saviour, your own hearts should neglect him, and you should miss of an interest in him and his saving benefits.
