    A reviewer

    Not since reading some of the works of Charles Spurgeon have I come across a clearer and more concise treatise of the fundamentals of the Christian life. Exactly what is salvation and how is it achieved? What is the real meaning of the Blood of Christ? How are we to relate to the Cross? What exactly is personal sanctification and consecration? These subjects and more are presented in a very understandable manner. The simple teachings here are much needed in today's church which is often falling off of the straight and narrow path of truth.

    Highly Recommended

    Watchman Nee was, without a doubt, a gifted teacher. Although I own a paperback copy of this book, I felt it worth purchasing the ebook as well. I like that I can refer back to it and reflect on the ideas covered anytime I find myself in need of something valuable to read--like during time spent in a waiting room at the doctor's office. If Mr. Nee's explanation of the book of Romans' description of the three ways the of Blood of Christ works in the life of the Believer were taught in more churches, there would be fewer Christians suffering under the weight of their past.

    Mr. Nee makes it easy to understand how it is the Blood of Christ that deals with what we have DONE; but the Cross deals with who we ARE. One deals with the sins we have committed, the other with the principle of Sin within us. Both are needed to live victoriously as Christians.

    A matter of opinion

    I would question the opinion of a 'pastor' who would also recommend the reading of a book that the author specifically says was to kill God, The Golden Compass, and at the same time diminish the time tested and proven record of Watchman Nee. There are very few writers that are able to so clearly explain the scriptures in a pragmatic and viable manner as Nee.

    The temptation of piety

    It is true, this is a classic by the enigmatic Watchman Nee, but having read the book in the early 70's I have had some time to think back upon the life that Mr. Nee would have me live. Pietism and blatant literal living of scripture may be the foundation for a heavenly life, but it will leave a life a life of merit, beauty, hope and lasting affect behind. Nee expects life to be lived under strictist authority with no room for individual personality or self development. It must follow a path led by rigid theology. Watchman Nee is a poor exegete of scriptures. His fundamentalist approach ignores historical context and the culture to which the Bible was originally written.

    WARNING! The paperback edition that I got from this site (2008

    WARNING! The paperback edition that I got from this site (2008 Edition by Wilder Publications) is all garbled. A 3-page section is completely missing starting in the middle of a sentence, so that the rest of the sentence is actually the second half of a sentence from 3 pages later. (This is on page 28 of the Wilder version). I would recommend getting a version from a different publisher.

    Revolutionize Your Christian Walk

    This book revolutionized my Christian walk. Angus Kinnear did a great job in compiling Watchman Nee's sermons into this book. There's no doubt that Christ is the center of Watchman Nee's life, his words are so anointed by the power of the Holy Spirit that they will speak to your very heart.

    Format not good

    Watchman Nee is a classic and worth reading but this version is not formatted for easy reading. Side load a free version.

    Nothing Normal Abourt This Excellent Resource

    Extraordinarily detailed and scholarly writing by famed Chinese Christian of doctrines from the book of Romans. Due to the age of the text (approximately 80 years), the modern reader will need to re-read many passages to get the full value from the text. It's worth it. Modern writings seem like skimmed milk compared to the cream-rich writing of Watchman Nee.

    Details what amount to good, better and best doctrines of the Christian's dying to sin and self.

    This is one of Nee's best. He is a no nonsense man and his message is pure.

    Truly life changing

    I believe that this book is a must-read for all new believers. It lays a strong foundation of the work of Christ. This book is mostly based on Romans. As I started reading it, it started impacting my life and as I shared what I learned, I could see people around me getting impacted as well.

    Great book!

    This is a book I plan to read again several times to grasp all the points. There is so much to take in, once doesn't do it justice. I'm buying another of his books now!
