One of the most well-known writings of 17th-century Puritan minister Richard Baxter, The Saints' Everlasting Rest serves as an inspirational, meditative guide to the afterlife.
After many years of working to reform the Church of England, Richard Baxter faced an unexpected serious illness, during which he carried out an intense theological exploration of the afterlife and heaven. The humble approach in his writings reflects his life as a Nonconformist leader in the church. His ponderings on heaven, our ability to understand it, and the nature of it will help you prepare for the unknown and encourage a deeper devotion to God.

I love reading/listening to books! Favs are by Reformed authors. I'm always looking for good biographies, and accurate Church history.
Sometimes, the Puritans are a little deep, and that's a good thing. But Richard Baxter is a very easy read/listen. His love for the Lord shines through and he uses Scripture to show what he believes and why. The writing is so lovely, it's almost as if the Spirit Himself helped Baxter pen this! But, we all know better....it is just that beautiful.
Lovers of Christ Jesus should sit down, take your time my brethren and just soak in this beautiful masterpiece. You'll love the Lord even more when you are finished. This is not a "one time" read either, I could read this over and over (or listen, in my case.)
The narration is excellent, so over all, it's edifying and so easy to listen to!
Soli Deo Gloria!
This is a great book! Very helpful for those serious about following Jesus and loving people. This is not for the superficial unless you want to get serious!
