Richard Baxter's The Saints' Everlasting Rest (1650) has long been recognized as one of the great classics of Christian devotion, and it is by this book that he is best known. The original work consists of some eight hundred thousand words-a clear example of Baxter's prolific pen-yet in Baxter's own life-time it reached twelve editions!  During from a serious illness, Baxter set his pen to write about heaven:  What is it like? Who will be there? How can we prepare for it? He believed that heaven was a state of perfect freedom from evil where Christians can enjoy pure union with God. Baxter encourages us live a heavenly life on earth by dweeling on thoughts of heaven and so can better prepare ourselves for it. Although our ability to comprehend heaven has been sullied by the fall. but despite his imperfect knowledge, Baxter's meditations can help guide the saints as they ruminate about the glory to come. As a classic devotional, Saints' Everlasting Rest enables readers to catch a glimpse of what heaven will be like.
