Richard Baxter dogmatically insists that the Scriptures teach that ‘Few Will Be Saved’,that is relatively few out of the mass of humanity that have ever lived. Baxter goes even further,than some,perhaps many in our day would-” What are some of the reasons for the evil which abounds? Who is to blame? The author reasons that Satan umconverted one of the causes some put most or all of the blame on Satan but the godly Pastor correctly concludes-“He does not force men to sin,but tempts them to it Over three and a half centuries later,these objections and the Puritan Pastor’s response to them remain useful to this present generation.
The fourth objection deals with ‘Religious Hypocrite’s ;the godly Minister’s response-“Whatever hypocrites are,it is not so with those that are sanctified. God has thousands and ten thousands that are otherwise Another common objection back ca,l still strongly applies today,is the unbeliever pointing to gross outward sin that they see in others and saying that they are not guilty of that level of wickedness-Mr.
Baxter brings this Biblical perspective to that objection,that it is also great wickedness in God’s sight-” In another chapter Richard Baxter endeavors to convince the reader clal ‘God Takes Pleasure In Men’s Conversion’,one of the persuasive arguments that he brings is,that if this were not so-” We should follow their excellent example,in this,as they follow our Lord’s command to plead and reason with the lost,to turn from serving the idols of their hearts and to worship and serve ‘The King Of Kings And Lord Baxrer Lord’s’,who alone is worthy to be praised and worshipped,by those who were made in His image.
Richard Baxter’s ‘A Call To The Unconverted’ is one of the Evangelistic Puritan works that was greatly used of the Lord,in this godly Pastor’s generation and is still relevant and needed centuries after his departure from this world.
May our Lord be pleased to continue to use it,to call those from serving themselves and this sinful world,and serve the ‘One True Living God’. Wow, Richard Baxter pulls no punches in this book!
He’s hard-hitting and sticks with the literal interpretation of the Bible as he tells precisely what the Bible says about Salvation and how to reach it. If you’re looking for the feel-good Antinonianism approach of “you can sin all you want and live any way you want as long as you believe,” this isn’t it but if you truly are searching for God and want to know how to be saved and what to expect from God and what God expects from a disciple, you’ll find the answers here.
Content wise, this is a 5-star book.

However, I gave it 4 stars because of the edition itself. It’s also a kind of bold print so between that and how tiny the print is, it’s not the easiest book to read. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. The content of this book is awesome, but the typeset is terrible. After trying to read this for 30 minutes I had a serious headache and my eyes burned.
I highly recommend that version, the type is properly done and is easy on the eyes. Todays evangelismthe way it is presentedis far from what evangelism was under the great revivals in the past. God was being glorified. Today is a ‘man- centered gospel.
Jesus isn’t richqrd cute little baby on Mary’s lap. He’s the lion of the tribe of Judah. He’s not begging sinners to ‘accept’ or ‘ask Him into their hearts’!!!
Call to the Unconverted to Turn and Live
There is even a limit to Gods’ patience beyond which people may not go. Jesus said in John 7: Richard Baxter is excellent as is Joseph Alleine- “an alarm to the unconverted”. Be prepared to be alarmed. One person found this helpful. Unconvertdd by Richard Baxter will bless you.
This book is a sobering one the will help both the believer and unbeliever to think about eternity. Good Words to stir bacter a proper mindset on living in the Word of God.
Too often, we allow the world to dictate to us how to live and what we can and cannot think. Instead, we need to see our lives from God’s unconvfrted because that’s richars that unvonverted. The content of bzxter book is excellent, but the. What a great book! Heart breaking and heart stirring!!
