©2009 Watchman Nee; (P)2009 christianaudio.com
The truths in this book are so simple, yet so hard to see without being told. It opened my eyes to things I had never before considered and kick myself for not realizing earlier.
Nee is generally a hard read/listen. Not because the writing is dull, but, because it is so rich and full. You have to dedicate real time to his books, this one included. I've had to rewind a few times, but it is well worth it.
This is one of the first books I read as a new believer 3 decades ago. I had always wanted to reread it, then I stumbled on it here in audio format. This is one of the few books that I recommend every Christian read. Essentially, its is a discourse on the book of Romans, but is done in a very conversational style.
The narrator for this book was well chosen and he is very easy to listen to. He never gets in the way of the text. Highly recommended in book AND audio form.
Every believer should read this book to solidify their standing in Christ. This audiobook is narrated so well and Paul Michael expresses, what I feel was Watchman Nee's intent, extremely well. I have listened to some chapters over ten times now and I am still learning.
Tim van Akker,
This book ranks 1st in my audiobooks collection.
The material was fresh and inviting. It caused me to think about my normal christian walk. I must say a lot of weight fell off my shoulders after learning about the normal christian life. It transformed my thinking and gave me a new admiration for the christian life.
Tremendous asset to any library.
Didn't mind listening to it all at once.
For any believer who may be struggling with a lack of understanding about the christian life, strongly suggest for a new believer and a seasoned one as well.
I became interested in this author after hearing Joyce Myer mention him. The book was excellent. I learned so much and listened to the book twice in succession to make sure I had not missed any great teaching.
yes I prefer the audio but I don't know that not reading it for yourself is a good thing. Watchman Nee has the ability to remind of what Gods word says in regard to how we should be versus mans.
Yes, but I could not
I bought the audio version after reading the print version, because this book is so awesome spiritually and I wanted to apply its insights more deeply into my inner spirit. Reading the book while listening is yet another way to absorb the material more deeply.
Watchman Nee's emphasis on the blood of the cross for forgiveness and the power of the cross for transformation within, is the heart of this study of the first eight chapters of Romans. But in the later chapters he thoroughly describes life in the Spirit with a clarity of writing style and depth of spirituality that has made him one of the great spiritual teachers of the twentieth century. We all desperately need more of the cross in our lives, a deeper surrender to it and a thorough consecration to Jesus Christ. Watchman Nee shows us the way.
Listening to a book is another medium for absorbing its content, another sense. The eyes are one sense, the ears another. When put together, the learning experience is just that more profound. The audio brings out nuances that are sometimes missed in reading. With a book as profound as this, repeated listening and reading is required.
Lift High the Cross!
Watchman Nee presents the idea that as descendants of Adam we existed in and with him from the beginning and now are subject to fallen natures. All Christians should be familiar with the secrets in this Christ centered book, understanding why we need redemption and how Christ's sacrifice satisfies that need. Highly recommended.
It challenged me to look at my life as a Christian
The Holy Spirit
The Apostle Paul
Excuse me, what's NORMAL?
this book is for believers and non-believers its for PEOPLE
I enjoyed reading this book and found it very insightful and informative. I have read many of Watchman Nee's books earlier in my life and enjoyed this background information as to his life and the circumstances of the writing of several of his books. I would recommend it to any reader of Watchman Nee or reader of Christian biographies.
