Secrets of Watchman Nee


Bridge-Logos 2005

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Dana Roberts has spent more than a quarter of a century studying Watchman Nee. This volume is a provocative, thoughtful, insightful analysis of the real Watchman Nee: how he lived, what he taught, and how he influenced contemporary Christianity. Roberts also shows how contemporary Christianity and Chinese culture helped to influence Watchman Nee. Because Nee continues to be popular to Christian’s today, it is important that his qualifications and his choice of methods be questioned. Is the Bible the sole compass of his faith? Are his ideas pragmatic, in the sense that they do what they say they do? In this in-depth study, Roberts answers these questions and more by thoroughly surveying and analyzing Nee’s life and thought. Herein, the myths surrounding Nee are unraveled to reveal the man. A vast overview of materials is made available for further study in the extensive footnotes and bibliography.
