God views the church, the redeemed believers, from a heavenly perspective. Far from seeing her as defeated by the power of sin and sins, God views the church as the triumphant and glorious counterpart of Christ, who fully expresses the One who fills all in all. In The Glorious Church Watchman Nee discusses four significant representations of the church in the Bible: Eve in Genesis 2, the wife in Ephesians 5, the woman in Revelation 12, and the bride in Revelation 21 and 22. In each instance, he presents the church’s high calling to fulfill God’s eternal purpose. Recently discovered handwritten notes supplement this new and fresh translation of The Glorious Church, making it the most complete record of the messages given by Watchman Nee in the Fall of 1939 and the fall of 1942. The Appendix, "The Overcomers and God's Dispensational Moves," is a significant, never-before published portion of these notes.

Watchman deep-dives into the heart of God to provide his readers a glimpse for the very desire of His heart—the church. I have received tremendous help that has drastically changed my view of my Christian life and walk.
