Item description for The Normal Christian Life (Hendrickson Christian Classics) by Watchman Nee...
Overview "God makes it quite clear in his Word that he has only one answer to every human need--his Son, Jesus Christ. In all his dealings with us he works by taking us out of the way and substituting Christ in our place. The Son of God died instead of us for our for-giveness: he lives instead of us for our deliverance. So we can speak of two substitutions--a Substitute on the Cross who secures our forgiveness and a Substitute within who secures our victory."

The Son of God died instead of us for our forgiveness: he lives instead of us for our deliverance. So we can speak of two substitutions--a Substitute on the Cross who secures our forgiveness and a Substitute within who secures our victory." An early leader in what became China's phenomenal house church movement, Watchman Nee (1903-1972) spent the last 20 years of his life in a communist prison.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Normal Christian Life (Hendrickson Christian Classics)?
Powerrful Study Aug 24, 2008
This book is must for a believer who desires to know God, to understand New Birth and Life in spirit. A great teaching on Romans. I am going to read it many times again.
Everyone Needs to Read This Book Jul 28, 2008
Truly a classic. Apart from a great recommendation, this 50 yr. old book would have been overlooked. Watchman Nee had a knack for breaking down scripture for easy absorption. Totally altered my life.
Avoid the May 29, 2008 paper back edition Jul 2, 2008
Avoid the May 29, 2008 Paperback, buy the Mass Market Paperback. A poor edition of a classic book, most of the notes were removed, and some explanations aren't there either, the book has been mutilated.
Now I See Jun 18, 2008
When I was 9 years old I got my first pair of glasses and was amazed by the detail and clarity of my new vision. What was once green blobs atop brown cylinders became gorgeous, complex trees in their full, leafy glory. In a similar way, thanks to Nee, I see the details and wholeness of God's greatest gift to us, His Son.
Watchman Nee makes Paul's Letter to the Romans accessible and applicable. I have been a Christian for many years and participated in many Bible/Christian studies. Nevertheless, I did not grasp the fullness of the Cross. The Normal Christian Life explains in everyday terms the many benefits of Christ's sacrifice for us and how to walk in Him. Please read this book and share it with others. It is a life refiner.
life changing Jun 18, 2008
I've never heard anyone teach some of the things in this book but I've seen glimpses of them myself in my own scripture study. This book is simply life-transforming! I'm almost done with my first read thru the book and plan on immediately re-reading it.
