Editorial Reviews

'This work is a scholarly and accurate record of the voluminous letters and prefatory epistles of Richard Baxter, together with correspondence from those who were his admirers and adversaries. The material is a treasure-house for those eager to study, in depth, the history, theologicalconcerns, social conditions and pastoral styles of 17th century England, during the Commonwealth and Restoration period. The Bibliography and Indices are superb, the volumes are a delight to handle and a tribute to Clarendon. A major historical resource.'James Robertson, Theological Book Review, Vol. 6, No. 2, February 1994
