In Meet the Puritans, the authors Joel Beeke and Randall Pederson sum up the content of this work well: “This work shows twenty ways that a person can be deceived into thinking he is a Christian when he really is an almost Christian. Mead explains the need for self-examination, signs of the unpardonable sin, and reasons for a believer’s lack of comfort. He concludes with three matters that every reader must be convinced of: the evil and filthy nature of sin, the misery and desperate danger of the unregenerate, and ‘the utter insufficiency and inability of anything below Christ Jesus to minister relief.’ The two-fold purpose of this short, readable classic is to shake nominal believers out of their complacency and to comfort true believers.” Comfort for the believer is contained in each of these books, but not until the reader has gone through pages of thought-provoking admonition for an in-depth self-examination.
