Breaking the Outer Man to Release the Spirit
Anyone who serves God will discover sooner or later that the great hindrances he has in the Lord's work is not others, but himself. He will discover that his outward man (soul) is not in harmony with his inward man (spirit). Both tend to go toward two opposite directions from each other. He will also sense the inability of his outward man to submit to the inner control of his regenerated spirit. His greatest difficulty lies in his outward man, which hinders him from using his spirit.
In Watchman Nee's Release of the Spirit, we can clearly see that each one of us has as much of the same "Jacob-nature" in us. Our only hope is that the Lord may blaze a way out of us, breaking our outward man - breaking it to such a degree that the inward man may come out and be seen. This is precious! This is the way to serve the Lord.
This edition of Release of the Spirit by Christian Fellowship Publishers includes a chapter-by-chapter study guide.
Excellent for understanding the Holy Spirit

If this third person of Trinity baffles you, this book will clear it all up. It's a short book that best explains who he is.
I have identified the enemy…and it is I.

I (self) continues to fight for survival... preeminence…yes, even glory.
Watchman Nee has a way of sharing this in such a practical way. This book shows how self hinders and even blocks to flow of God’s spirit from our lives. Then he goes on to share what is necessary to allow the Release of the Spirit, for God’s glory. Well written, practical and most useful. I’ve learned through authors like Watchman Nee, Andrew Murray, and E. M. Bounds that God can use preachers to share his message in written form and allow God’s Spirit to flow through their writings. If you are seeking to draw closer to God you won’t be disappointed with “Release of the Spirit.”
One of the best books on the indwelling Spirit of Jesus Christ.

I believe this to be one of the best books on the indwelling Spirit of Jesus Christ. I have used it to teach Christians and non- Christians about the working of GOD through The HOLY GHOST. When the Christian receives the gift of salvation the Spirit of Christ (The HOLY GHOST) takes up residence in our heart.There He wash,cleanse and seals us until the redemption day.

This is an absolute "must read" for all believers, but is especially recommended for new believers when facing trials for the first time as a born again Christian. This book is anointed to change the course of your life. All honor and glory to Jesus.
