Summary

This classic work unfolds the path of Christian faith and presents the eternal purpose of God in simple terms. Nee's discussion and writings on the book of Romans is truly challenging. His classic work takes on many difficult subjects and radically challenges current Christian culture.

In Depth Theology

This audio is definitely one of those you have to take slowly and dip into every now and then.

I remember starting the print version of this years and years and ago, and having to stop because there was so much to think about. I?ve had to do the same again with this audio as its too meaty, you really have to think and digest what you?re listening to. Sometimes going back to listen again if you haven?t got it first time round!

It?s definitely value for money as it will last you a long time and its something you can come back to, time and time again.

The narration is fine as its very clear and easy to understand, not a lot of expression in it though.

If you like theology, and want a very in depth look at the New Testament book of Romans, you won?t go wrong with this audio.

Thanks to christianaudio.com reviewer?s program for this copy

Beautiful Relaxing Read

Really enjoyed the depth and breadth of this book. The readers voice was so calming, and really encouraged me to slow down and listen and study the subject matter with thought. Nicely done.

Enlightening

The truths in this book are so simple, yet so hard to see without being told. It opened my eyes to things I had never before considered and kick myself for not realizing earlier.

Nee is generally a hard read/listen. Not because the writing is dull, but, because it is so rich and full. You have to dedicate real time to his books, this one included. I've had to rewind a few times, but it is well worth it.

Highly impressed and thankful for this audiobook

Every believer should read this book to solidify their standing in Christ. This audiobook is narrated so well and Paul Michael expresses, what I feel was Watchman Nee's intent, extremely well. I have listened to some chapters over ten times now and I am still learning.

Solid food for New Believers

This is one of the first books I read as a new believer 3 decades ago. I had always wanted to reread it, then I stumbled on it here in audio format. This is one of the few books that I recommend every Christian read. Essentially, its is a discourse on the book of Romans, but is done in a very conversational style.

The narrator for this book was well chosen and he is very easy to listen to. He never gets in the way of the text. Highly recommended in book AND audio form.

Learned So Much

I became interested in this author after hearing Joyce Myer mention him. The book was excellent. I learned so much and listened to the book twice in succession to make sure I had not missed any great teaching.

Awesome

Where does The Normal Christian Life rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This book ranks 1st in my audiobooks collection.

What did you like best about this story?

The material was fresh and inviting. It caused me to think about my normal christian walk. I must say a lot of weight fell off my shoulders after learning about the normal christian life. It transformed my thinking and gave me a new admiration for the christian life.

What three words best describe Paul Michael’s performance?

Tremendous asset to any library.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Didn't mind listening to it all at once.

Any additional comments?

For any believer who may be struggling with a lack of understanding about the christian life, strongly suggest for a new believer and a seasoned one as well.

Watchman Nee is a man full of the holy ghost

Would you consider the audio edition of The Normal Christian Life to be better than the print version?

yes I prefer the audio but I don't know that not reading it for yourself is a good thing. Watchman Nee has the ability to remind of what Gods word says in regard to how we should be versus mans.

Who was your favorite character and why?

N/A

Have you listened to any of Paul Michael’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, but I could not

This is an AWSOME book!

Would you consider the audio edition of The Normal Christian Life to be better than the print version?

I bought the audio version after reading the print version, because this book is so awesome spiritually and I wanted to apply its insights more deeply into my inner spirit. Reading the book while listening is yet another way to absorb the material more deeply.

What did you like best about this story?

Watchman Nee's emphasis on the blood of the cross for forgiveness and the power of the cross for transformation within, is the heart of this study of the first eight chapters of Romans. But in the later chapters he thoroughly describes life in the Spirit with a clarity of writing style and depth of spirituality that has made him one of the great spiritual teachers of the twentieth century. We all desperately need more of the cross in our lives, a deeper surrender to it and a thorough consecration to Jesus Christ. Watchman Nee shows us the way.

What does Paul Michael bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Listening to a book is another medium for absorbing its content, another sense. The eyes are one sense, the ears another. When put together, the learning experience is just that more profound. The audio brings out nuances that are sometimes missed in reading. With a book as profound as this, repeated listening and reading is required.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Lift High the Cross!

Radical insights into the Christian life

Watchman Nee presents the idea that as descendants of Adam we existed in and with him from the beginning and now are subject to fallen natures. All Christians should be familiar with the secrets in this Christ centered book, understanding why we need redemption and how Christ's sacrifice satisfies that need. Highly recommended.

The Most Comprehensive and Amazing Book!

If I were in prison, and could choose only 2 books. The first would be the Bible. The second would be this book...

Paul Michael is an amazing orator and You won't be disappointed.

This book is steeped in profound mysteries in Godliness, and practical application.

Thank you Lord for Watchman Nee!
