Item description for The God of Abraham, Issac and Jocob: The Promise of God, the Enjoyment of Christ, & the Transformation of the Spirit by watchman nee...
Overview The Christian life is based on the irrevocable promises of God, the enjoyment of all that God has prepared for us in Christ, and the transformation that results from the loving discipline of the Spirit. In The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob Watchman Nee draws upon the experiences of these Old Testament patriarchs and presents their lives as an allegory of the complete Christian experience. From our response to God's promises by faith to our ultimate transformation into sons who are conformed to the image of Christ, we must pass through the same life experiences of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Like Abraham, we have been given the promise of God for the inheritance; like Isaac, we can enjoy all that God has planned for us in Christ His Son; and like Jacob, we must experience the discipline of the Holy Spirit for the sake of our growth and transformation.

5 star plus Dec 29, 2004
Every book of Watchman Nee's, I am very impressed with. But this book shed so much light that I can no longer be dependent on myself but on God. This in turn will cause us to trust in God, and love Him to the uttermost! I am extremely happy that I am a believer!
A book for life-application Aug 2, 1999
Watchmann Nee takes the well-known yet elusive stories of these three men in Genesis and turns them into a palatable feast sampling the full Christian experience. Beginning with Abraham knowing God as the Father to the Israel fully matured and transformed, one is brought from the initial stage of God's calling through to the stage of maturity in the Christian life and as a functioning member of the corporate Body of Christ. His writing inspires thousands of Christians to endeavor to experience Christ in such a way, so that one grows deeper and deeper into God and with God.
A Christian life should be a balanced life: Jul 22, 1999
Besides Watchman Nee's Normal Christian Life which is based on the book of Romans, this book gives us a vivid and living picture of a normal Christian life which is a balanced, overcoming, and God's ordained life, based on the story of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the book of Genesis. These three persons together characterize three main aspects of a normal Christian life - justified by faith, bestowed all the riches from the father, and transformed to be an over-comer by God's ordained way. The book is really helpful and encouraging in experiencing a balanced Christian life, in understanding God's ordained way, and in bearing cross to follow the Lord in an absolute way.
