Item Description...
The chapters of this book are basically comprised of messages given during a time of training in the summer of 1971 in Los Angeles, California. They cover the speciality, generality, and practicality of the church life. The speciality of the church life is the faith (Rev. 14:12; Gal. 1:23; 2 Tim. 4:7) which is composed of the beliefs concerning the Bible, God, Christ, the work of Christ, salvation, and the church. Every real Christian shares the same beliefs regarding this common faith (Titus 1:4), our Christian faith. This faith is unique and is the ground of all the believers' genuine oneness. When the Body of Christ is divided, it loses everything; yet it has been divided again and again, mainly due to the over-emphasis of certain beliefs other than those comprising the faith. Beliefs other than those comprising the faith have much disagreement and disputation. These beliefs may even become winds of teaching (Eph. 4:14) blowing us away from the oneness of the faith (Eph. 4:13).

Reviews - What do our customers think?
An Enlivening Exposition on the New Testament Church Life  Jan 16, 2001
In just seventy pages Witness Lee outlines the Biblical pattern for a sound, healthy and vital church life. He shows this to be the outcome of a "check and balance" between three major ideas that must exist in each believer. These are the speciality, the generality and the practicality of the Church life.

The speciality of the Church life is an uncompromising absoluteness concerning the common faith or those beliefs that all genuine Christians hold to be true. (i.e. the deity of Christ, the innerancy of the Bible, the death and resurrection of Christ, etc.). This is followed by the generality of the Church life, which calls for a general and open-minded attitude toward the beliefs and practices of other genuine Christian who also adhere to the common faith but whose beliefs and practices may differ from one's own. The justification for the allowance of such divergent views in these issues stems from the necessity of maintaining the oneness of the Body of Christ. Paul's attitude with respect to the "esteeming of one day above another" in the book of Romans is an example that epitomizes this principle of generality. Such a seemingly open-ended and unbridled allowance for variance in Christian practice must however be mitigated by the practicality of the Church life which calls for only those practices that are espoused by the Bible, history and personal experience as the most conducive for achieving the greatest spiritual growth in the life of the believer and the Church.

For anyone seeking clarity on what kind of view a believer ought to have with respect to the Church at large and more specifically what the Bible delineates as a proper local church, this is an excellent book. I was helped greatly in these two matters.

A Great handguide for Christian unity in the Church  Jun 11, 1999
This book lays a good foundation for the Christian reader - in the three areas of Generality, Speciality and Practicality of Christian unity. In Generality we learn the five basic points of the Christian faith. In Speciality we learn how to contend for the Christian faith in a proper way according to the Scriptures against heresy and degradation in the Church universal, and lastly in Practicality a way for practical church living is presented. This book is a must for Christians who want to find the keys to Christian unity. The truths presented are simple yet profound.
