About the Author:

Richard Schlatter, now deceased, was professor of history at Rutgers University, and served as provost of the university under Mason Gross.

Richard Baxter (1615-1691) was a prominent English churchman and peacemaker who sought unity among Protestants. Born in Rowton to parents who undervalued education, he was largely self-taught. At age twenty-three he was ordained into the Church of England. Baxter became even better known for his prolific writing, with more than two hundred works to his name. His devotional classic, "The Saints' Everlasting Rest", was one of the most widely read books of the century. When asked what deviations should be permitted from the Anglican Book of Common Prayer, he created an entirely new one, "Reformed Liturgy", in two weeks. His autobiography and his pastoral guide, "The Reformed Pastor", are still widely read today.
