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

"It is high time for this generation to know Richard Baxter -- the famed pastor of Kidderminster. Timothy Beougher has written a fine study of the great Puritan pastor. Baxter on Conversion is a fine work of Christian scholarship. Beougher simultaneously introduces Baxter to a new generation and sets the record straight concerning some of the controversies that marked Baxter's ministry and enduring reputation. The question of genuine conversion to Christ was a preoccupation of the Puritans -- and for good reason. Our own generation of Christians would do well to follow Baxter's example and think about the meaning of conversion and its true signs. Professor Beougher combines scholarship and evangelistic passion in this important book, setting the record straight and raising all the right questions. If we misunderstand conversion, we misunderstand the Gospel. We are in Professor Beougher's debt for this timely book."

R. Albert Mohler, President, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky

Richard Baxter believed that a faithful system of theology, when created by a skillful hand, would not add to the Scriptures, but merely draw out what is already there. Richard Baxter and Conversion reveals that Timothy Beougher is just such a skillful hand with respect to Baxter's writings. He has drawn out of this classic and controversial Puritan's writings the theological and practical strengths and weakness that are there, and in the process clarified the historic controversies that have surrounded this great Puritan pastor's doctrine of conversion.
