There was Andrew Murray in South Africa and Watchman Nee in China, and it's difficult to know whose books influenced the most Christians lives. Yet this is the first theological study of Nee's writings and the Chinese philosophy that influenced much of what he believed and taught. Watchman Nee became a Christian in mainland China in 1920 at the age of seventeen and began writing in the same year. Throughout the nearly thirty years of his ministry, Watchman Nee was clearly a gift from the Lord to His Church. In 1952 Nee was imprisoned for his faith. He died in prison in 1972. His books continue to be an abundant source of spiritual food for Christians throughout the world. This book is for every Nee reader.
