The Almost Christian: The Fearful Story of Louisa – Jacob Abbott

The danger of neglecting duty and resisting the Spirit. The frightening death bed scene of Louisa who wished to live a cheerful young life and put off repentance until later. The Almost Christian (1) procrastination, (2) the love of the world (3) the fear of man.

The Young Christian was one of the earliest and certainly one of the most popular of all of Abbott’s books.
