    Extraordinarily detailed and scholarly writing by famed Chinese Christian of doctrines from the book of Romans. Due to the age of the text (approximately 80 years), the modern reader will need to re-read many passages to get the full value from the text. It's worth it. Modern writings seem like skimmed milk compared to the cream-rich writing of Watchman Nee. Details what amount to good, better and best doctrines of the Christian's dying to sin and self.

Note to potential readers: this ebook edition is rough. I haven't done a line for line comparison, but the ebook doesn't seem to include all the text of the hard copy which I am also reading, and it certainly isn't organized in anyway to read the reader. (This is my first experience reading a book almost simultaneously in ebook form and hard copy. Hard copy wins on several counts, which I'll explain on the other review.)

    Should Be Required Reading for Every Christian This book, is packed so full of good, biblical, practical information regarding the Christian life, that it should be handed to every single Christian as required reading. Nee does not deviate one millimeter from practices outlined in the New Testament. If this book was followed as a text book of sorts, we would not have all of the different divisions and denominations that we have today. I am overwhelmed by the information.

I will read this book again and again and again to soak up all of its nutrients. I highly recommend all of Watchman Nee’s books.

    I really enjoyed this book. He takes the reader back to the "genesis" of church life, not to the protestant reformation or the papacy but ALL the way back to the first century. This book is written to those who are workers in the church and as such, interested in matters of church life and function (when he speaks of "the church" he is referring to the people, not an impersonal building). He does repeat himself often saying the same thing in more than one way but one has to remember that this wa I really enjoyed this book.

    This will be difficult for most church workers, advocates a pretty radical departure from current practice.

    Great book (and appropriate title for a study of the book of Romans)

    This is a very important book for the Christian churches of America. I have read a lot of Nee and most of what is in here can be found in his other writings. However, in this book he very forcefully and concisely lays out the scriptural guidelines for how the men and women that were working with him were instructed to found and instruct churches. It is particularly pointed away from traditional western church organization and toward a scriptural understanding of church with the tradition strippe This is a very important book for the Christian churches of America. I have read a lot of Nee and most of what is in here can be found in his other writings. However, in this book he very forcefully and concisely lays out the scriptural guidelines for how the men and women that were working with him were instructed to found and instruct churches. It is particularly pointed away from traditional western church organization and toward a scriptural understanding of church with the tradition stripped away. The churches that these men and women founded and encouraged survived the and flourished during the last 80+ years of persecution and opposition from the Chinese government and I believe part of the reason for that is contained in this book. If you care about church life I suggest that you read this book.

    Nee always has great things to impart. Here he takes an organic approach to church life that's refreshing and for the most part unpracticed by most modern churches. It's a revelation that's challenging and radical. Nee always has great things to impart.
