Wonderfull Christian Book Oct 25, 2007
This book very clearly presents the main focus of God concerning man and Jesus Christ's full salvation. The two sections in the appendix on "the World" and "the Church" shed much light on two very important matters. It would be especially helpfull to young believer's but is a must read for all God's seeking people. After reading it, I bought 10 copies which I gave as gifts to young believer's.
Highly recommended tool for evangelism Oct 7, 2006
This book is great to give to people who are not Christians but are open minded. Watchman Nee takes the interesting perspective of a prosecutor presenting evidence. He does not plead with you to believe, he simply lays out a logical argument. He starts with the argument for God, then proceeds to ask the question - What would the word of God be like, given that there is a God? He comes up with four conditions: (1) It must tell us explicitly that its author is God. (2) It must carry a high tone of morality. (3) It must give a detailed description of the past and the future of the universe. (4) It must be available. Going through various inspirational books throughout the world, he shows that the Bible must be this word of God.
Nee then proceeds to show why God would become man - rather than starting with the issue of salvation, Nee mentions that other than writing to man, the only other way for God to communicate with man would be speaking to him as a man. He lays down five requirements of such a man, and then goes through a list of likely candidates. He finally settles on Jesus, the only man to meet all of the five requirements and also to have claimed to be divine. Nee continues on to discuss what the nature of Christ would be like, and finally what the new Christian's life should be like. The appendix goes into details on subjects that are mentioned only briefly in the book, including more details on the subject of the existence of God and why Nee has found that people deny the existence of God. Nee's arguments and his examples of his own experiences while preaching the Gospel in China between the World Wars are simple yet elegant.
It is truly a unique Christian work and a great work of evangelism. Even if you are already a Christian, it is a good book to read in case you ever come across a seeking one and would like to know how to approach matters. I highly recommend it.
best book on God and Christ for new or confused people Jun 4, 2003

An excellent book from one of my favourite authors Nov 18, 2001
One of the first spiritual books that I've read. God is certainly not a fiction of the imagination.
To have faith in Christ is to know who we are and who He is. Dec 18, 1999
It is as difficult to know who we are as to know who God is. A man is born to be proud, and this pride hinders him from knowing the living God and keeps him away from God's salvation. The book helps us turn away from our human pride and turn to the living God who is the very creator of the universe and who is also the savior Jesus Christ. The normal Christian faith is based on knowing who God is, and is experienced by dropping our human opinions and giving our hearts to Jesus Christ who is not only the incarnated God but also the salvation to those who need Him and want Him.
