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.
Richard Baxter (1615-1691) was a leader in the puritan movement in Britain. His successful ministry of Kidderminister, England was outstanding even in that period of eminent pastors and preachers, and his book The Reformed Pastor explains many of the principles he practiced there.

A most amazing work that should be read by every young minister before he takes a people under his care. I think the practical part of it should be reviewed every three or four years. Nothing would have a greater tendency to awaken the spirit of a minister to that zeal in his work, for want of which many good men are but shadows of what (by the blessing of God) they might be, if the maxims and measures laid down in that incomparable Treatise were strenuously pursued.
Philip Doddridge, (1702-1751) was a well known nonconformist pastor in Northampton, England. He ran a small college in his home for training men for the ministry.
