Watchman Nee uses the lives of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob to show that God is able to turn our failure into success and our weakness into strength. Gods sufficiency in the face of our failure is seen only as we surrender to Him and are changed into His likeness.
Watchman Nee was a noted Chinese Bible teacher and Christian leader. He began his preaching ministry while still a university student. From 1923 to 1950 Mr. Nee founded 200 churches. Starting as small groups meeting in rented houses, these self-supporting congregations became very strong spiritually and grew rapidly. Nee concentrated on deepening spiritual life through intensive training in the Word of God. Nees rich spoken ministry influenced many lives. His literature ministry has preserved a large number of his sermons, resulting in the publication of over 50 books in English alone, and through these printed pages Nees impact and influence continues into this century.
