This is the best spiritual book that I have *ever* read. It gives the most clear picture I have seen of God's mission/purpose on earth, and what it means to walk with God in the Spirit practically. I highly recommend this book for as a must-read for every believer in Jesus. You won't regret it.

What is the book that I have with the most highlited pages, notes, stars, asteriks, and underlines? What is a book that has made it from the pages to my experience? It is this one. Simply put, it is the clearest and most easy to read book which unveils God's purpose that I've read.

This is a tough read. It took me a while to get just a small fraction of what Witness Lee wanted me to gain. I hope I can eventually see the ideas he proposed played out in my own life.

God's economy.

I thought I knew it all. God's economy is simply God's plan to dispense Himself into man. This is what I knew. I knew God's economy in a very objective way, but I failed to realize the importance of God's economy in relation to my personal life with the Lord. Many people told me I had to read this as a young believer, but I didn't see the need. However, Brother Witness Lee depicts God's economy in not only in an objective sense but also in a subjective way, making it applicable to

This book changed my Christian life dramatically. After having many hit and miss experiences of Christ, I was helped to see God's purpose and plan, the way He created man and how we can contact and experience Him.

Witness Lee. Imprisoned in China for his faith. My favorite theologian. This his best work. Poorly written (all his book are) BUT, content is king.

Excellent read. Not like other books that talk about God and money. It is amazing to realize that the whole Bible speaks of one thing: God's economy, which is God's dispensing of Himself as the Father, the Son, and the Spirit into our being to make us the members of the Body of Christ, the church, consummating in the New Jerusalem. And God's economy has to do with our entire tripartite being. There's so much about this wonderful economy, that I have to read this book again and again - and I have ...more

Two elements distracted Christians Judaism and Gnosticism. God's economy is his plan to dispense himself into humanity. The word of God is sharper than a two edged sword. The best preacher find the key to unlock the heart. Everyday should be devoted to worshipping God.

A classic, showing the oikonomia of God is His household arrangement to dispense His riches (which is just Himself) into us His children in His household, the Church.
