Book Summary of The Reformed Pastor by Richard Baxter


17th Century pastor, Richard Baxter, expounds upon Acts 20:28 imploring his fellow ministers to take heed of themselves and of the flock in which they’ve been entrusted by God to shepherd faithfully.

Pastoral ministry is for the glory of God and the good of humanity and should be taken seriously by ministers and congregants alike. Baxter sets the duties of pastors, the motivations for these duties, encouragement to repent in areas of neglect, and sincere hope that those who read his words will seek to follow his exhortations. The task at hand is too important to do otherwise.
