FORTHCOMING TITLE, ETA SEPTEMBER 2021
The Reformed Pastorhas been cherished by generations of pastors for its urgent call to faithfulness and emphasis on personal soul care. Originally a series of talks to fellow ministers by the English Puritan Richard Baxter, this book expounds on the apostle Paul’s encouragement to the elders of Ephesus to keep watch over themselves and all their flock. Baxter composed this message to encourage ministers toward a more intentional and sacrificial soul care, so that in turn they would better shepherd their congregations. In this updated and abridged edition, Tim Cooper presents Baxter’s iconic exposition in easy-to-read language so that a new generation can reflect on what it means to be a faithful pastor in Christ’s church.
