Summary

Listen to the prayer of the apostle Paul for his beloved church in Philippi: "This I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and all discernment; so that ye may approve the things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and void of offence unto the day of Christ" (Phil. 1.9-10).

What was it that inspired him to offer such a prayer for the dear saints in Philippi? Do we today desperately need the same prayer? We talk about love and fellowship, and yet we encounter many problems and failures. What is the missing link to a glorious church? Can it be the lack of "full knowledge and all perception that ye may prove [or, distinguish] the things that differ" (literal translation)?

Certainly spiritual discernment is the pressing need of today. How can we obtain this full knowledge of God? Where do we get spiritual discernment that we may know the things which differ or are more excellent? These are the matters which brother Watchman Nee tried to address during his latter years of ministry.

This present volume, entitled Spiritual Discernment is composed of three parts: Abound in Knowledge, Abound in Discernment, and Approve the Excellent. The publishers were able to acquire these notes in Chinese recently, and they have now been translated into English for sharing with the English-speaking saints.

May these notes help many in meeting the pressing need of today.

Best heard when you can concentrate deeply

insightful and concise. I liked chapter 14 the most. The book is practical and relevant, more so in the world we live in today.

The book was truly written and read well.

If you are trying to go deeper in your spirituality, this book will point you to the cross in a unique way. I've been in ministry for 15 years and have never understood the cross like I do now. . God Bless

outstanding book - read a bit too fast

Outstanding book. Very insightful. One that must be returned to. Were it simple subject matter the readers pace would be perfect, but considering the depth of the material his pace was a bit too fast.

profound

I was inspired to take many notes. My thoughts soured. Breaths of relief and sometimes giggles with in. I am free from the struggle of doing right by Him. The scriptures were explained with careful gentleness and illustration, and at the end of the book, I eagerly started again from chapter one on.

Good but...

Enlightening read but lacked a personal touch. Narrator was too monotone (no expression, dry, dull).

BOOK NUMBER ONE

This book is packed with light and practical insight into the workings of man's tripartite soul. This help comes from our brother's having passed through many trials and failures to reach the level that he ministers from in this book. A must read for any serious Christian who is battling living in his soul versus living in his spirit.
