    Sermons on Philippians 1:23 written by the Puritan Baxter near the end of his life. Very encouraging and instructive. One minor flaw: Baxter frequently refers to the saint's soul as being 'imprisoned' in the body. And although I would not choose to use such language myself, there are a few of mitigating factors: 1) Because the text he is expounding (Phil. 1:23) deals with the intermediate, disembodied state, Baxter necessarily focuses on leaving the body to be with Christ (cf. 2 Cor. 5:8). 2) He [...]

    The only other book I had read of Baxter's was the reformed pastor, which is a must read. This was the last book Baxter wrote before he died while he was facing death. I have to honestly say that this was condensed version of his original work. I trudged through the first 60 pages and thought about quiting-but I knew I had to finish. I am glad that I did finish after page 60 the book becomes very good. I could not help but have a permanent grin on my face reading about how lives will be in heave [...]

    Baxter is a Puritan and his writing and Theology are spot on. If you wonder what it should be like for a Christian to die, this helps. We all say we want to go to heaven, but few are ready to die. Baxter points out why he is more than ready and based on his doctrine of God.

    Puritan writer Richard Baxter writes pieces of advice to Christians on how to face death. Written as a set of numbered instructions, "Dying Thoughts" stirs the soul to look to the joys of Heaven, where God dwells forever. Such a treat for the weary Christian soul!

    Richard Baxter shares his thoughts about death from the perspective of a preacher and pastor of the Gospel. If you have any fearful thoughts about dying this honest and transparent account by Richard Baxter will prove to be an encouragement.

    I went through this book in audio format. It was well written, but sometimes hard to follow. I think part of the problem was the speaker, but still, I would recommend this book.
