Richard Baxter

Christian Holiness in a Fallen World

‘And this is life eternal, that they might know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.’ (John 17:3)

Baxter’s insight and practical, pastoral heart leads the reader ever deeper into the genuine world of holy, Christian living. Here is no frivolous, inconsequential work; but, as with all Puritans, a studied, considered examination of the God we claim to serve and the life He calls us to.

By scrutinizing the very nature of God he draws out our necessary response, and demands that, like Enoch, we ‘walk with God’. And by showing the reader the demands God’s Word puts on us, he calls the non-Christian to repentance and the Christian to both a holy awe and yet a reverent joy in the worship of such a wondrous Father, a loving, sacrificial Son, and a Holy Spirit that leads us into the wisdom, understanding and knowledge of the ‘ways of God’ in the lives of redeemed sinners.

This work is an extract from Baxter’s original, more extensive, ‘The Divine Life in Three Treatises’; first published in 1664.
