Description

"...If you be not converted, you are not true Christians. You may have the name, but you have not the nature."

Richard Baxter, A Treatise of Conversion 1657.

Puritan religious experience was centered on conversion, the 'new birth' of the soul - the essence of Puritanism.

Tim Beougher forensically dissects Baxter's writings and life so that we see how he constructs a 'systematic theology of conversion'. How relevant this is becomes clear as Beougher investigates how Baxter speaks to us today about controversies on justification, church discipline and the sacraments.

Baxter was, arguably, the greatest of the Puritan pastors, over the period of his ministry in Kidderminster he had every person in his town to his house to enquire of their spiritual state. It was central to his care for his 'flock'.

In an era where authentic belonging is sought, but rarely found, Baxter can speak to us today just as effectively through this study by Tim Beougher.

Endorsements

"Timothy Beougher's study of Richard Baxter offers a fresh interpretation of a very important early 'evangelical.' Baxter's advocacy of 'mere Christianity' was important in the contentious milieu of seventeenth-century England, and as Beougher shows persuasively it remains important in the midst of our contemporary contentions as well."

Mark A. Noll, Francis A. McAnaney Professor of History, University of Notre Dame, Notre Dame, Indiana

"The publication of Beougher's important book confirms that Baxter was a fresh and independent thinker who wrestled first-hand with the scriptures. Baxter's theology was aimed at the strengthening of the church and the conversion of the lost, and his passion for truth reverberates throughout the work. We can be thankful for Beougher's wonderfully clear and perceptive analysis of Baxter's theology of conversion. Beougher dispels some misunderstandings of Baxter's theology, reminding us that the study of church history has immense practical benefits, for Baxter comments on many of the debates that we still face today. I commend this work enthusiastically."

Thomas R. Schreiner, James Buchanan Harrison Professor of New Testament Interpretation and Associate Dean, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky
