The Young Man's Friend contains, "...admonitions for the erring; counsel for the tempted; encouragement for the desponding; hope for the fallen." The book was developed out of lectures to a congregation of young men, and is intended to, "...lead the reader to cultivate the old Puritan integrity." In this second part of the book, Eddy discusses the negative effects of gambling and alcohol use, particularly their effects on family life. Eddy also discusses religious topics, including that even sins that are hidden are known to God, and that the Bible is the perfect guide and the product of divine revelation.
