I've been a Christian for several years, and this book has filled in all the gaps in my understanding of what it means to be a true child of God. Watchman Nee was a gifted teacher, explaining essential truths in a way everyone can understand. Please read this book, this is the 'meat' we all need!
The Normal Christian Life by Watchman Nee has been over the years the only book (apart from the Bible) that clearly expands, in the power of the Spirit of God, the depth, width and breath of the marvelous salvation plan that Christ purchased for me. If studied diligently, this book will reveal Christ to the soul in ways that will transform one's Christian life forever. I have been a Christian for 33 years and, over the years, have read, re-read and studied this book word-by-word and line-by-line and have grown from revelation to revelation. This book is like a house of mirrors where the deeper you look into it, the deeper you see the depth of the great salvation of God in Christ. I recommend this book to everyone from the new Christians to the most mature ones.
In 1974, I had been saved for eight months when The Normal Christian Life was recommended to me. I read a lot and this book rates at the top of any thing I have read. I have read it several times and have given dozens of copies away. It is a must read for every Christian, not as an education tool but, rather, as a minister of Life.
