The Normal Christian Life
The Normal Christian Life, Watchman Neeby Watchman Nee

"What is the normal Christian life? We do well at the outset to ponder this question. The object of these studies is to show that it is something very different from the life of the average Christian. Indeed a consideration of the written Word of God - of the Sermon on the Mount for example - should lead us to ask whether such a life has ever in fact been lived upon the earth, save only by the Son of God Himself. But in that last saving clause lies immediately the answer to our question..."

In The Normal Christian Life, Watchman Nee presents his views on what the normal Christian life should be. His classic work unfolds the path of 'Christian Life' in the light of God's desire and presents the eternal purpose of God in simple terms. This book has sold over 1 million copies and is available in many languages. Considered by many to be a spiritual classic of Christianity, it is one of the best known books by Watchman Nee.

About the author: Watchman Nee (1903-1972) is remembered for his leadership of an indigenous church movement in China, as well as for his books, which continue to enrich Christians throughout the world. Beginning in the 1930s, Nee helped establish local churches in China that were independent of foreign missionary organizations and were used to bring many into the Kingdom of God. From these roots sprang many of the house churches that continued to meet after Western missionaries were forced to leave the country during the Cultural Revolution. Arrested in 1952 and found guilty of a large number of false charges, Watchman Nee was imprisoned until his death in 1972.

The Normal Christian Life, Watchman NeeTriumphing Over Sinful Fear
by John Flavel

To some degree, everyone experiences fear. It impacts the decisions we make and leaves us feeling helpless. John Flavel begins this book by examining various fears and discussing general ways God governs it in this world. He then turns to sinful fear in particular, explaining its causes and disastrous effects. His longest chapter discusses rules for dealing with sinful fear, showing how a proper fear of God is the ultimate remedy for all other fears. This practical book will help you avoid making excuses for sinful fear and encourage you to trust in Christ's commitment to settle His people's feeble and trembling hearts.

One of the great biblical principles which our Reformed and Puritan forefathers lived by may be summed up in these words: 'It is always better to suffer than to sin'. This excellent book by John Flavel, now reissued in up-to-date style, gives solid reasons why every believer in Christ must seek to correct his fear of man by reminding himself of the need to fear God far more. God's covenant faithfulness will always sustain the Christian. Here is a summons to every child of God to live daily in the fear of the Lord, and with a good conscience, so as to appear with joy before the Great Judge at the last.

About the author: John Flavel (1628-1691) was an English Puritan minister in the thriving seaport of Dartmouth. His complete works have been reprinted in six volumes by Banner of Truth Trust.

Available to order from and, and from Reformation Heritage Books - 144 pages.
