Richard Baxter believed that teaching was the minister's main task. He also believed that Christians should regularly come to their pastor with their problems and ministers should regularly catechise their congregations. Baxter's main concern was that personal catechising should be given to everyone, not just the young. It was this concern that brought The Reformed Pastor to birth. Faithfully presented here in an edited version for the modern audience, this book offers helpful, practical advice for those in leadership positions.
