Richard Baxter (1615-1691) was vicar of Kidderminster from 1647 to 1661. In an introduction to this reprint, Dr. J.I. Packer describes him as "the most outstanding pastor, evangelist and writer on practical and devotional themes that Puritanism produced." His ministry transformed the people of Kidderminster from "an ignorant rude and revelling people" to "a godly worshipping community. These pages, first prepared for a Worcestershire association of ministers in 1656, deal with the means by which such changes are ever to be accomplished.
