Richard Baxter’s model for today

Back in 1999 I took a Doctor of Ministry class in which we read Richard Baxter’s The Reformed Pastor. Baxter writes on how a pastor’s ministry can be ‘revived’ or ‘changed’ (his meaning of ‘reformed’) through regularly meeting with the families in one’s parish or ministry.  It is an excellent, transformational volume. Along with that volume we received a small, 17 page booklet entitled, The Baxter Model: Guidelines for pastoring today.  In this volume Wallace Benn adapts Baxter’s method for today.  It is a helpful little booklet that is published in England, so it is hard to find here in the states.  It can be found online if you click on the title.  Read and benefit from one pastor’s use of it today.
