The Christian pastor is considered one of the best works written by the Puritans. It emphasizes the responsibilities attached to pastoral functions, while providing guidance and warnings to those who exercise or consider this ministry.
Over time, this book has encouraged many pastors to take seriously the task the Lord has given them. This reissue of the French version published in 1841 is still essential reading today for pastors or future pastors of our churches. The biblical principles that Baxter presents in this book, when applied to the realities of our time, raise new challenges and lead us in a whole new way.
Richard Baxter (1615-1691) is a 17th century English pastor and theologian whose ministry and writings have played an important role in the history of the Church. Among the Puritan theologians of his day, Richard Baxter was arguably the most author of the book. Through his writings he influenced other great men of God such as Charles Spurgeon, George Whitefield, J. C. Ryle, and Martin Lloyd-Jones. His works stand out from those of his contemporaries by their interest in practical theology and the pastorate.
