Reviews - What do customers think about Spiritual Authority?

Basis for and Qualifications for Authority  Jan 20, 2007
For any Christian who is looking to be discipled in the ways of Christ while wary of the danger of submitting to the wrong authority, this will be a good book to read.
For those Christians who are serving the Lord in various capacities and meeting opposition and rebellion, the Old and New Testament examples given will not only bring much comfort by showing the faithfulness of God to those HE has called, but will also serve as a reminder that God will not be mis-represented and that abuse of authority is not tolerated regardless of provocation.
A must read for all  Jan 18, 2007
This book deals specifically with the subjects of rebellion and submission. The study will help one understand the fall of Satan, Adam and Eve. I found the book to be very instrumental in rooting out rebellion against God and his delegated authorities in my own life. It has also served to strengthen my marriage a great deal. Reading it might help to save your marriage. I would recommend this book as required reading to any and all Christians as well as non Christians alike. It might be a cure for the problems that plague our society. In fact I was so blessed by the principles in this book that I have implemented its study as a course in my Church under foundations class level two.
Do yourself a favor, Get IT, and Get One for your Pastor as well.
Spirtual Authority  Aug 17, 2006
A must read for anyone who claims that Jesus is Lord of their life. You cannot be a person of authority until you have met the King of all authority. Excellent reading and life changing.
Spiritual Authority  Jul 10, 2006
This is a book every Christian should read next to besides the Bible of course.
Great book for discipling Americans  Apr 22, 2006
As an American Pastor who is not power hungry nor a control so many critics of this book claim it fosters...I have found this book deals with the issue of authority from a spiritual perspective. Nee doesn't hesitate to challenge Christians to trust in God and to demonstrate that trust in God by obeying leaders and by submitting to their God given authority. In our culture in America today, disrespect for leaders is considered a right. Nee calls it sin.

I think one of the reasons this book has so much controversy around it is because we are so off culturally in the land of the free and the brave...with respect to submission to leaders and to authority. We are so independent minded as a nation that the whole concept seems like a foreign concept. It's very easy then for some to label it as some sort of oriental influence. But in reality this book applied well is crucial for life transforming pastoral leadership.

Another reason this book has been criticized is because some leaders have used it while leading from their own insecurities and fear of losing people from their ministries. Some abusive tendencies have spawned just criticism of those ministries. But that is NOT Nee's problem...nor a result of the book. That is the result of leaders' allowing their old nature to cloud the spiritual principles laid out in scripture. So we should not blast 'Spiritual Authority'.

Some I know who have been wounded by this sort of
abusive leadership have overreacted by rejecting the entire concept of any leadership/authority at all. Some say that the
bible doesn't teach the concept of spiritual authority at all!!
That's pretty bad in my view.

Layered over that is the egalitarian movement which rejects authority in the sense Nee lays it out here. The combination is there are multiple pressures on the church to reject spiritual authority of any kind. I've seen some egalitarians fight hard
to redefine words which include the concept of authority and obedience so that they can remove the entire concept. But
the scriptures are clear on the subject.

If we can study what the scripture says about spiritual authority and compare it to what Nee says here, I think we will be encouraged to trust in God through all kinds of situations...and we will see the Kingdom of God advance.

There are very few books bold enough to tackle this issue. There are very few books which dealt with a failure to recognize authority in my life as this one did.

For me the most convicting chapter was the one on delegated authority. Nee points out that God places people in authority and that we are rejecting him when we fail to respect delegated authorities. This led me to contact the Assistant Pastor of my old church and ask for his forgiveness. He so appreciated the call.

Where do you have trouble submitting to authority?

Why not read this book...prayerfully and with an open heart?
Ask God to show you if you need to change and don't be surprised if you end up actually being placed into a place of spiritual authority after you learn the lessons God teaches you through this challenging book. I think that God used this book to help me transition into the ministry full time. It was and is a very helpful book for me personally.

I think one other caution is in line. Some people are so overly submissive that they don't need to read this book. For those people I would recommend NOT reading this book but instead focus on something that encourages them to have healthy conflict resolutions. Maybe these people should find a book on conflict resolution and read that instead. But for most of us...especially American Evangelicals in general...we desperately need this bold message!
