Watchman Nee Meets T. Austin-Sparks

T. Austin-Sparks was 49 years old when Watchman Nee visited him in England and spent 8 months with him. Nee was 34. This meeting was a turning point in the history of the church, and one of the results was “The Normal Christian Church Life” in English.

(Note: the book was The Normal Christian CHURCH Life that was translated from Chinese to English with the help of Sparks and his friends. The Normal Christian Life is a different book, though it was based on many of the spoken messages that Nee delivered on this same trip.)

As far as I’m concerned, Sparks and Nee had the greatest revelation of Jesus Christ and God’s Eternal Purpose in Him since Paul of Tarsus. Their insight into Christ exceeded that of Augustine, Calvin, Luther, Wesley, etc.
