As a Congregationalist minister in 17th century England, Mead could not teach or preach without censure or persecution. Eventually, the harsh religious climate of his homeland drove Mead to Holland, although he returned to England to minister to a congregation in Stepney in secret. The Almost Christian Discovered, a theological essay, tackles one of the most interesting in controversial problems in Christian teaching: the “almost” Christian, a person who is on the brink of receiving God’s grace, but falls short. Two issues present themselves: “The one is,” Mead writes, “how often a believer may miscarry, how low he may fall, and yet have true grace. The other is, how far a hypocrite may go in the way to heaven, how high, he may attain, and yet have no grace.” Mead seeks to answer these questions with this essay, continuing an ancient debate that has lasted into the present day.

As a Congregationalist minister in 17th century England, Mead could not teach or preach without censure or persecution. Eventually, the harsh religious climate of his homeland drove Mead to Holland, although he returned to England to minister to a congregation in Stepney in secret. Here, Mead includes two sets of sermons on joy and the power of grace, drawing from Luke 10:20 and Psalm 131. He entreats his readers or listeners to live lives not characterized by the things of the world, but by the things of God, finding delight and joy in godliness rather than in the vain, passing things of worldly society.
