The apostle Paul received a heavenly revelation of the Lord Jesus on the road to Damascus, and thereafter spoke of the "excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus." Our Christ is excellent and supremely precious, and even the knowledge of Him is supreme, sweet, and precious. In Christ in His Excellency Witness Lee opens the biblical revelation of the excellent Christ. As the effulgence of the Godhead, He is transcendent and superior to all things; yet we can still enjoy His unsearchable riches. When we receive of His fullness as grace upon grace, we too can enter into the excellency of the knowledge of Christ and become the overflowing expression of His riches. Through this enjoyment we all will arrive at the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ, which is the Body of Christ as God's unique goal on the earth, and we all will display the excellency of Christ that others also may know Him.

About the Author
Born in 1905 in northern China, Witness Lee was raised in a Christian family and educated in English-speaking schools. At the age of 19 he believed in the Lord Jesus Christ and consecrated himself to preach the gospel. Early in his service, Witness Lee met Watchman Nee and began to labor together with him. In 1949 Witness Lee was sent by Watchman Nee to Taiwan to ensure that the things delivered to them by the Lord would be preserved. In 1962 Witness Lee came to the United States and began to minister here. He ministered in weekly conferences, delivering several thousand spoken messages until 1997. He gave his last public conference in February 1997 at the age of 91. His major work, Life-Study of the Bible, comprises over 25,000 pages of commentary on every book of the Bible from the perspective of the believers' enjoyment and experience of God's divine life in Christ through the Spirit.
