Leaving a lot of questions unanswered Jan 2, 2003
Interesting book that stirs up many questions one may have, that go unanswered. This book was not written as a book, rather, it was simply a recorded speech Nee gave over the period of several days at a conference (to other apostles?)
Possibly the hardest issue to swallow that Nee puts forth in this book, is that only apostles have authority to establish elders in a city. I would be interested to know if Nee thought that after an original class of elders has been established, if this original class has authority to appoint new elders as well, or will they always have to wait for an apostle? Chances are though that Nee's crowd already understood this, which is why he didn't expound on this.
The only reason I give the book a low rating is because I wonder about the quality of the translation. Did Nee really speak this way, or was his translator just not very good?
In general, Nee puts forth some radical views, which are rather thought provoking.
