Rick Shrader‘s Review:

This is the second in a trilogy of books by Baxter that I am reading this year.  As I wrote in the first review (Feb.), I find Baxter an interesting middle ground on Holiness teaching.  He does believe that a Christian should come to a crisis experience in life but he does not believe in a “second blessing” after Pentecost nor in the present tongues speaking.  He argues at length against the “Identification Theory” or the “Christ Life” as some way to attain sanctification by proxy but not actually.  Of his view he writes, “Our sympathetic heavenly Father does not demand alphabetic exactitude of doctrine before He answers the heart-cry for holiness.”
