Endorsements

‘Few are better at soul-surgery and gospel application to the wounds than Baxter. This book, a meditation on his own fears and doubts and a theological appraisal of them, was a valuable devotional read for me this year, even as I finished my slow, two-year re-read of Augustine’s Confessions. A nice complement.’ — JARED C. WILSON

Book Description

More well known for his Reformed Pastor, Richard Baxter was the outstanding pastor of Kidderminster. Dying Thoughts is his exposition of Paul’s words in Philippians 1:23: ‘For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ, which is far better.’ Benjamin Fawcett who made this abridged version of the original work wrote, ‘The Dying Thoughts of Mr. Baxter chiefly present to our view what every Christian may attain, and what it is the highest interest, as well as the indispensable duty of every Christian to aspire after.’

In this little book, we see Baxter wrestling with his own doubts and fears as he faces eternity, jealously examining his own heart, anxious to test his own sincerity, taking nothing for granted. Baxter wanted to die with every grace in his soul in full vigour. A man of life passions as ourselves, his Dying Thoughts provides much needed counsel, strength and comfort because it deals with the same conflicts, complaints and desires which fill our own hearts.
