This is a complete presentation on the workings of the human spirit and soul and body. The book aims at delivering people from the tyranny of self-life with its carnality and from the domination of the passions and lusts of the flesh. It attempts to lead them to the full salvation of Christ. It is not to be taken as a manual but as a guide to true spirituality. It is recommended that this three-volume work be listened to quickly once. Then, lay it aside and wait until the Holy Spirit leads one into a certain stage of spiritual life when knowledge and understanding are needed. Turn, then to the special section of the book dealing with that particular experience for enlightenment. Thus, it will be realized that in Thy light, shall we see light (Ps. 36:9). May God use this book to help people in their journeying towards the spiritual.

I have read the hard copy twice and listened to it once. God reveals something new each time. God granted Watchman Nee the ability to understand and explain spiritual life. So far in my life if I could recommend a book besides the Bible it is The Spiritual Man.
This is one of the most important Christian books every written. It will challenge you.
Great for any believer seeking to have a greater understanding of the inner man. Watchman Nee is full of grace to the believer and the church at large to endow us with this masterpiece only one led by the Lord could give. The insight he shares is exact and cutting at times. But definitely what the believer needs in this self-absorbed day and age. If you start the book, finish the book. It took me much longer than I expected, but it was very well worth the time spent. I hope that it blesses you likewise!
This book is well inspired by Our Lord
It's a wonderful teaching to me
Bible has been well explained in this book
I will read and read again.
Thank Josh Miller, may The Lord strengthen you more.
I really like Watchman Nee and this is an excellent book. I have little time for reading so I bought the audio version to supplement my kindle version. Unfortunately the reader reads this like it is a stanza, with a strict metrical rhythm. Annoying. I listened to the Normal Christian Life and reader was fantastic. He didn't have that Christian preaching condescension or read with a rhythm. He read like he was telling the story. Josh Miller would do well to note. I will have to make time to read this book from my kindle.
Watchman Nee has God-inspired insight into the Christian life and is one of my favorite authors.
The reader has such a jerky style, pausing often and in places that made no sense at all. I wish I had listened to an excerpt before getting the book! Miserable to listen to him.
"You will come back to this book!"
This is by no means a passive book to be just read and left on the shelf. It requires the active participation of the reader and careful contemplation and self assessment as a follow up.
It's a blessing of a work to those who are ready to seek a deeper walk with God.
The narrator has a welcoming tone and allows the seriousness of the book to come through without making it a chore.
It's best to set aside time to go through this book on a regular basis.
As for content the book is very thorough carefully dissecting the matters of the body soul and spirit.
I intend to read again and highly recommend!
