These books will help people to know God personally and understand the Bible in a deeper way.
Irvine, California (PRWEB) May 09, 2013
Bibles for America (BfA), this week launched its giveaway of a two-book set of “The Normal Christian Life” and “The Economy of God.” Since 2000 BfA has given away over two million Bibles and Christian books. Staff members have a particular regard for the two books in this new offer and plan to give away all 100,000 sets—200,000 books—before the end of the year.
“‘The Normal Christian Life’ had a profound impact on me early in my Christian life, and I still get help from it today,” said Tony Barba, general manager of BfA. “We want to make these classic Christian books widely available to the American public so they can benefit from them just as we have. We really believe these books will help people to know God personally and understand the Bible in a deeper way.”
“The Normal Christian Life,” by Watchman Nee, is widely hailed as a Christian classic. The book describes what Nee terms the “normal” life of a Christian, as opposed to the “common” Christian life, or the life that Christians commonly experience. He proposes that Christ was and still is the only person able to live a normal Christian life, and that he wants to live this life through Christians today.
Nee became a Christian in China in 1920 and began writing on matters of the Christian life in the same year. He spoke to both large and small Christian audiences in China and Europe and raised up hundreds of churches in China. Nee was arrested by the Chinese government for his faith in 1952 and remained imprisoned until his death in 1972. His works began to appear in English in the late 1950s and had great influence among Western Christians. In 2009 Nee was recognized in the U.S. Congress for his devotion to his faith and his contributions to Christianity worldwide.
“The Economy of God” was written by Nee’s co-worker, Witness Lee. The book uses “economy” not in reference to a financial system, but to explain from the Bible God’s overall plan for humanity.
Lee also became a Christian in China in the 1920s. He met Watchman Nee in 1932 and worked closely with him for nearly two decades in Christian ministry. Lee came to the United States at the age of 57 and ministered here for the next 35 years of his life. His major work, “Life-study of the Bible,” is a comprehensive book-by-book exposition of the entire Bible. Much of his speaking has been published as over 400 titles on Christian life and service. Lee spoke publicly for the last time at a Christian conference in 1997 just months before his death.
