Item description for Authority and Submission 2nd Edition by watchman nee...
Overview Our God is a God of order and divine arrangement, and He desires that all things be headed up in Christ (Eph. 1:10). In opposition to the divine will, there is rebellion and chaos in God's creation due to the fall of humanity. According to God's divine arrangement, the reestablishment of order in the universe is centered on the relationship between Christ, the Head, and the Church, His Body. Christ has been made Head over all things to the Church (Eph. 1:22), and the living excercise of authority and submission within the Body of Christ is central to the working out of God's divine will.
In Authority and Submission, Watchman Nee presents many helpful principles and examples from the Holy Scriptures related to the proper exercise of both authority and submission, an exercise that is according to the divine life in the Body of Christ.

A Must Read Jan 4, 2007
This is a must read for any practicing Christian. It will change your life.
INSIGHTFUL AND ENCOURAGING! Apr 14, 2005
Watchman Nee is so original in his presentation and reflections on the Bible and the Christian life in general. This book really challenged me to accept certain patterns of authority and guidance which the church often neglects to teach. This is one of those books that I highlighted many a paragraph!
A hard headed christian in Atlanta Feb 19, 2003
This book is excellent. It is just what I needed. It has made me rethink many things, from how I talk about my President and other elected officials to the way I act toward my church, to the way I drive. Submission is the key to a full christian life and it permeates all areas. Mr. Nee shows that in a great, effective way. This book is best read with it in one hand and with a Bible in the other hand. If all Christians could practice the message given here, the church would be much more effective. It humbled me in many areas. So simple but yet so deep.
One of the deepest book I have read in a long time! Oct 31, 2002
Watchman Nee has a knack for being able to make things that are very deep, very practical. In this book he lays bare the whole concept of authority as it applies not only to Christians but to the whole world at large.
This is not 'light' reading. I had to stop every couple of pages and digest what he was saying and apply it to my life. But I have never read a book that dares to deal with this subject in such a bold, clear, and uncompromising manner!
Please read it.
To have authority, you must be under authority. Aug 9, 2001
I am convinced that if Watchman Nee were alive, and he was allowed to preach in our churches, he would not be invited to come back. His message is God-centered, and God-glorifying, unlike the Christian hedonism we see that is so much of our popular culture.
Bro. Nee uses very simple language, and numerous examples from the scriptures to drive home to the Christian that in order to be a subject of the Kingdom of God, you have to be submitted to the principles that the Kingdom operates by. This is a far cry from the do-as-you-please attitude that the majority of so-called Christians have. If this book makes anything clear, it is that it is possible to do God a service, without it being His will.
Did not Jesus Himself say that "Not everyone that saith 'Lord, Lord' shall enter into the Kingdom, but he that doeth the will of my Father?"
Read this book prayerfully and allow the Holy Ghost to convict your heart, and cleanse you from all manner of rebellion. For to obey is better than sacrifice.
