One point considered in The Believer and the Beloved is this very thing–that we are ordinary people, yet loved by the Lord.
The Believer and the Beloved is a new Bible study based on Watchman Nee’s book The Song of Songs, an allegorical look at the Song of Solomon. Love stories have their ups an downs as two individuals navigate a growing relationship. Just like those romantic movies, a Christian’s bond with the Beloved has its ups and downs as the relationship grows and matures.
Watchman Nee became a Christian in mainland China in 1920 at the age of seventeen and began writing in the same year. Throughout the nearly thirty years of his ministry, Watchman Nee was clearly manifested as a unique gift from the Lord to His Body for His move in this age. In 1952 he was imprisoned for his faith; he remained in prison until his death in 1972. His words remain an abundant source of spiritual revelation and supply to Christians throughout the world.
