Salvation of the Soul
What exactly is the salvation of the soul?
In Salvation of the Soul, Watchman Nee introduces readers to a subject which is commonly overlooked by God's people. Yet we are definitely told by the Lord this word: "A salvation ready to be revealed in the last time… Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls" (1 Peter 1:5-9). As the end draws nearer and nearer, it is incumbent upon Christians to know what the salvation of the soul is.
"The Lord tells us that if any man would be so mindful of himself as to be unwilling to deny his self, take up his cross, and suffer for the sake of obeying God, that one will eventually lose his soul. In trying to save his soul in the above manner, he will as a result lose it in the future. To lose his soul means he will at the end suffer and lose whatever he delights in. He will not obtain what he looks for."
Watchman Nee, Salvation of the Soul
This book is offered as a companion volume to another work by Nee, The Latent Power of the Soul, and serves as an answer to the problem discussed in that work of the inordinate power hidden deep within man's soul. Because Salvation of the Soul reveals to us God's positive way with our soul, it is hoped that the reader may gain from its pages a great appreciation for the dimensions of God's salvation so graciously given to man.
