The Word of the Cross is timeless!
From his early Christian years, Watchman Nee embraced the cross of Christ and proclaimed the Christ of the cross. He never moved away from this foundation throughout his many years of faithful ministry.
"'The word of the cross' has neither beginning nor end. It cannot be measured by time. For the Lamb has been slain from the foundation of the world (Revelation 13:8). The life of a Christian originates from the cross and is perfected by the cross. If a believer is real, he must trust in the cross. The word of the cross and the believer's life are inseparable."
Watchman Nee, The Word of the Cross
The Word of the Cross contains some of his early writings, from the years 1922-1927. The readers will find this book divided into three parts. Part One, Musings Under the Cross, unveils the innermost thoughts of a man in first love. Part Two is called the Word of the Cross which lays a firm foundation for our faith. Part Three, Faith, looks at how to strengthen our faith and other related subjects that deal with the subjective aspects of the Christian life.The combination of all three parts offers up a balanced picture of normal Christian living.
