The author had two objects in publishing this invitation to intercession. The first was to stir up those many Christians who through ignorance of their calling by God to prayer, or because they doubt that their prayer will avail much, take but little part in the work of intercession. The second was to aid those Christians who do pray by helping them to more fully appreciate the greatness of the work and to see the need of giving their strength to it.

|The reason it's a classic is very apparent now... Mar 29, 2007|
|This is one of the most challenging books I've ever read as a Christian. It's not challenging because of its language, the language is simple. It's challenging because of how direct, simple and clear it is. The book is a pseudo-commentary on the book of Romans. Despite being translated from the teachings and writings of a Chinese Christian in the first half of the 1900s, the illustrations and language read as if they had been written by your closest friend.|
There is so much in this book that has transformed my understanding of Paul's writings to the Romans and what that means to the overall message of Christian teaching. I got rebaptized as Nee gave me a better understanding of the need for baptism. That's just one of the ways this book has seriously impacted my walk with Christ. Ever since reading it I've been trying to get my hands on as many other Watchman Nee books as I can and I've already bought a couple extra copies of this to pass on to firends who are being changed by it as much as I have.
|Practical teaching you don't get in a lot of churches today Feb 26, 2007|
|The title of the book doesn't stand out but the point is that most Christians are not living what God considers normal but what is actually subnormal. Watchman Nee presents what the normal Christian life is all about and the reasons why a lot Christians never get above subnormal. The book of Romans comes alive and the normal Christian life is meant for all believers not just a select few. It is the overcoming life that is meant by normal. All believers are overcomers because of who they are in Christ but not all believers recognize and appropriate this fact into their thinking and are, therefore, defeated and/or subnormal. |
|Excellent Feb 7, 2007|
|We as Christians have a tendancy to live way below the level that God has provided for us as His children. Watchman Nee effectively reminds us what we have available while explaining why we tend to miss out in many areas of our lives. |
|New Life For A New Law Jan 22, 2007|
|The Normal Christian Life is a true classic! This book has helped me to finally grasp Paul's presentation of the new life for a new law in Romans. |
Nee takes you through Romans ch. 1-8 and deals with who a person is in Christ. If we are not bound by sin and the flesh, then why do we struggle? Have we really been set free? Yes! Nee concludes that many Christians are living in their own strength. Many fail because they will not "take their hands off" and walk in the Spirit. It is in the moment of failure that we did not place our faith in the Son of God. It is in that moment of failure that we were living in our own strength and walking in our own power.
Nee reminds the Christian that he has already been given all that he needs to live a victorious life. We were given the "fruit" of the Spirit, not the "fruits" of the Spirit. We were given one gift! Christ is our love, joy, peace, patience, etc. We need only ask that he be more realized in us. We have been fogiven and we are now free to walk in the Spirit!
I believe Nee's book cries out to Christians in America to identify with Christ and the new law of love. It has been my experience that most Christians living in America only give lip service to this "new life" and are still living by the old law in the old man. We can live exactly like Christ... because we've been given his very life!
I pray that you will learn from Nee what Paul meant when he said, "The life I live in the body I live by faith in the Son of God."
I pray this book makes it on to your shelf with pen and highlighted markings galore.
After you have read "The Normal Christian Life"... I suggest reading "Release of the Spirit" by Nee.
|Not your ordinary book on Christianity Nov 22, 2006|
|I recently finished reading The Normal Christian Life by Watchman Nee. This is one of the best books I've ever read that is centered around Christianity. I get tired of seeing all the "Christian" books out there with 3, 5, or 10 steps to being a better Christian or how I can obtain spiritual maturity by praying certain prayers. However, The Normal Christian Life is a basic explanation of Christianity in simple, real terms. Watchman Nee is so genuine in his writing and helps to explain certain aspects of my Christian faith that are still kind of hard to grasp even after all these years. This is not a new book, in case you've never heard of Nee. He wrote the book around 1957 and why I am just now hearing about his writings is most likely due to the Christian "self-help" books that have always been shoved my way instead. If you get a chance, grab a copy from this site.com for cheap. It has really given me some things to think about and has helped grow my faith.|
