Richard Baxter's "The Reformed Pastor" by Matthew McMahon
Please allow me to recommend this excellent lecture by Dr. Matthew McMahon on Richard Baxter's work The Reformed Pastor:
SermonAudio.com - Who Are The PURITANS? 6/18
This lecture is useful for both clergy and laity alike. As even those who are not called to the gospel ministry need to know what to look for in a Pastor, and how to assess thier ministers Biblically.
I was especially encouraged to hear Dr. McMahon refer to how a Pastor needs to know how to help people with things like Fibromyalgia live a fruitful life. This is a subject which is rarely touched, and when it is, is often poorly handled. So sincere thanks to Dr. McMahon for mentioning this.
In transition, but Covenanter Presbyterian by conviction
"May that happy period soon arrive when the unclouded glory of divine revelation will shine from pole to pole; when men every where will see eye to eye, in all things that are connected with divine glory, and with their own eternal felicity." William Stavely (Irish Covenanter), An appeal to light (1796), pp 143-4
