Biography
Watchman Nee (1903-1972) is remembered for his leadership of an indigenous church movement in China, as well as for his books, which continue to enrich Christians throughout the world. Beginning in the 1930s, Nee helped establish local churches in China that were independent of foreign missionary organizations and were used to bring many into the Kingdom of God. From these roots sprang many of the house churches that continued to meet after Western missionaries were forced to leave the country during the Cultural Revolution. Arrested in 1952 and found guilty of a large number of false charges, Watchman Nee was imprisoned until his death in 1972.

And the Truth shall set you Free January 20, 2007
By The Publisher
Format:PaperbackThe most fascinating thing about this book is the writers interplay of the word “truth” and “reality” and the depth it reveals in familiar Christian terms and rituals such as Babtism, The Church,Worship, The Blood of Jesus, Humility, Prayer, Crucifixion and others.He makes the point that too many miss out on the spiritual realities behind them and convincingly outlines how to enter into that reality.

The sub-chapter “Supply and Reality” can be especially helpful in placing the individual christians role in the body of christ in the right perspective.

In the appendix was an amazing insight with examples from both the Old and New Testament into what he calls “obsession” which he defines as “what one thinks and does is totally wrong and yet one thinks that they are very right”.Some of the areas of obsession given are sickness,fear,speculations, other peoples words,imagined sin and many others.After explaining the causes, the writer goes on to explain how God’s light can provide the deliverance needed.
