In 1927 Watchman Nee published his spiritual classic on Christian growth and progress, The Spiritual Man. In that book Nee presents the seemingly simple biblical truth that man is composed of three parts—spirit and soul and body—as a central and necessary revelation for believers to grow and make progress in their spiritual life.
In The Economy of God, Nee’s closest and most trusted co-worker, Witness Lee, builds upon this foundation in order to unveil the central revelation of the Bible—that God wants to impart Himself into man for His full expression in the church. This is God’s plan, God’s economy. In The Economy of God, Lee clearly reveals the move of the Divine Trinity according to His economy and gives believers practical ways to cooperate with Him for the fulfillment of His eternal plan. Step by step, Witness Lee shows how to deal with obstacles to spiritual growth so that Christ may fully make His home in our hearts, that we may be filled unto all the fullness of God.
