One of the best Christian books I've ever read
By Michael A. Cooper "Coopster" - June 26, 2001
This is an awesome book, because it is all about how Christ is everything we need. His grace is completely sufficient, and our works are irrelevant. We don't need to ask for holiness or goodness or anything, because through the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, Christ is everything for us. The focus is on His greatness, not on trying to refurbish us. This book is the antidote to all those shallow, burdensome Christian self-help books!
Christ is the sum and reality of all spiritual things:
By A Customer - July 26, 1999
Watchman Nee's Normal Christian Life talked mainly about the fact of redemption and justification based on the book of Romans (especially Chapter 6, 7, and 8), and a little bit about Christ person. While in this book he went much further to reveal God's complete salvation through Christ - a living person put into Christ's believers to be their redemption, righteousness, life, love, patience, peace, joy, humble, and everything! Only Christ exists in God's eye in the whole university. It is really blessed to see this revelation concerning Christ person as a reality of all, because the whole Bible is a revelation of Jesus Christ (Revelation 1:1). This book can help Christ's believers open a spiritual eye to see this wonderful all-inclusive Christ who is far beyond human imagination.
Christ is All We Need!
By Michael Taylor "Michael Taylor" - March 16, 2004
Nee has written a thought-provoking book that will challenge the reader to consider the sufficiency of Christ in all things.Nee emphasizes that Christ is our life, truth, and power. Nee also mentions that the Christian is to let go of all self-sufficiency and instead let Christ be our sufficiency. Another important point Nee mentions is the futility of achieving human unity apart from Calvary - a rebuke to the world's system of doing things.All in all, an excellent read that will challenge your thinking. Read and be encouraged!
