Richard Baxter (1615-1691)

Baxter was educated at Wroexter School, and for a time held the Mastership of the Dudley Grammar School. On taking Holy Orders, he became curate of Kidderminster in 1640. Subsequently, he was for some time chaplain to one of Cromwell’s regiments. Through weakness he had to take an enforced rest, during which he wrote his Saints’ Everlasting Rest. On regaining his health, he returned to Kidderminster, where he remained until 1660, when he moved to London. At the Restoration, he became chaplain to King Charles II, and was offered the bishopric of Hereford, which he declined. On the passing of the Act of Uniformity, he retired from active duty as an Anglican minister. Around 1673, he obtained a license as a Non-conformist minister and began lecturing in London. Baxter’s works include:

  • Aphorisms of Justification, 1649
  • The Saints Everlasting Rest, 1650
  • Poetical Fragments: Heart Imployment with God and Itself; The Concordant Discord of a Brokenhearted Heart, 1681
  • Additions to the Poetical Fragments of Rich. Baxter, written for himself, and Communicated to such as are more for serious Verse than smooth, 1683
  • A Paraphrase on the Psalms, with other Hymns Left fitted for the Press, published posthumously, 1692

The Blue Letter Bible ministry and the BLB Institute hold to the historical, conservative Christian faith, which includes a firm belief in the inerrancy of Scripture. Since the text and audio content provided by BLB represent a range of evangelical traditions, all of the ideas and principles conveyed in the resource materials are not necessarily affirmed, in total, by this ministry.
