Nee-To-Sheng of Foochow, China is known as Watchman Nee to hundreds of thousands of Christians around the world who have encountered his books. The Release of the Spirit is one of his most powerfully challenging works. Watchman Nee exhorts believers that through the breaking of the outward man there comes a release of the inward Spirit. By means of our brokenness the Spirit rejuvenates our faith and makes us fit for service. // Watchman Nee knew about suffering. In his native China he suffered as a Christian. And he witnessed the brokenness in thousands of Christians, created by unusually difficult circumstances. In the midst of such discomfort it remains a testimony to his insightfulness that he preached the spiritual value of suffering instead of dreaming for a better earthly life. The Release of the Spirit will challenge all who engage it today.
