The Two Wealthy Farmers
A beautiful allegory, to show the contrasts between two farmers and their families. Mr. Worthy is a devoted Christian with a wonderful, godly home. Mr. Bragwell and his family are only “socially religious”, for worldly show and live for selfish gain and pride. Often, Mr. Worthy tries to show Mr. Bragwell the error of his ways, but his counsel is scorned.
Not until God works in ways which seize his attention and sober him, does Mr. Bragwell realize that the truths his friend have told him are the only paths to everlasting happiness.
The book also contains several stirring poetry selections, after the story.
