Christ the Sum of All Spiritual Things by Watchman Nee – Review

I used to always think of “going deep” in my walk with Jesus as being in the direction of apologetics, specifically in science, history, language or other more tangible spheres. Nee, however, shows abundantly how lacking I am in spiritual depth. The concept of “Christ the Sum of All Spiritual Things” is simple and is basically repeated throughout this book: Christ doesn’t GIVE us things like peace, healing, patience, etc., Christ IS our peace, healing, patience, etc. I can easily see how we can work at and achieve some semblance of life without Christ, but trying to grasp Christ BEING our life is hard to grasp. I have a lot of growing to do and I’m thankful for wise men in the history of Christianity, such as Nee, to help guide me.
