From the Publisher
In typical Puritan fashion, Mead shows the many ways that a person can be deceived into thinking he is a Christian when, in fact, he is merely an "almost Christian." Short and readable, this classic will help you to examine yourself to see if you are, indeed, in the faith. Mead's purpose is two-fold: to shake nominal believer who may be very "religious" out of their complacency, and to give true believers the comfort of their security. This book has been completely retypeset and updated for easier reading. Second Edition.

About the Author
Matthew Mead (1630–1699) was an English Independent minister. Mead succeeded John Owen in September 1683 as one of the Tuesday morning lecturers (presbyterian and congregational) at the merchants' lecture in Pinners' Hall. Pleading there on one occasion on behalf of poor ministers, he got a collection of £300., ladies putting their rings and watches into the plates. In 1686 he was again in Holland, preaching at Utrecht; he returned on King James's declaration for liberty of conscience in 1687.
