Changed Into His Likeness
by Watchman Nee

A truly brilliant and spirit led exposition of not only the story, but also the relevance and importance of the phases in a christian's life according to the lives of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. This book gave me peace about the lack of peace in my life, and God's way of working with me. A definite must if you're struggling with God and struggling to overcome life's fears.
I truly believe in the sovereignty of God in all circumstances of life. Even in the timing of reading a book. This book spoke volumes to me in my faith as a believer in Jesus Christ; the only begotten Son of God. Many topics in this work by Watchman Nee helped me in a personal way such as being delivered from the Law. Man continues to make lists of what I must do to gain eternal salvation.

This is a study on Abraham, Isaac and Jacob of the Old Testament, and how God worked in their lives. I read it in Norwegian, but it's actually very well written - and translated. (It's actually one of the few Norwegian books where the translation hasn't bugged me. It's published by Logos if you're Norwegian.) Nee's points are very god, show a tremendous amount of insight and are easy to follow. Great book!
Really informative on the connection btwn the Old Testament (Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob) and New (Jesus). Never thought about the dual meaning of the triune God, the Father/Son/Holy Spirit and the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. A quick read!
Watchman Nee (Chinese: 倪柝聲; pinyin: Ní Tuòshēng; Foochow Romanized: Ngà Táuk-sĭng; 1903–1972) was a Chinese Christian author and church leader during the early 20th century.
