Some time ago, I was able to get an advance copy of A Life Full of Forbearance but without Anxiety by Witness Lee (now offered for free from Bibles for America). I loved reading through it, and found myself pausing many times to pray, repent, and thank the Lord. This book has helped me appreciate Paul’s epistle to the Philippians, and to echo his desire “that I may gain Christ” (Phil. 3:8).
In this book, drawn from the Life-study of Philippians, Witness Lee explores the far-reaching ramifications of Paul’s message in Philippians by focusing on two words from chapter four: forbearance and anxiety. By returning to these words again and again from different angles, they become an entry point into a deeper appreciation of God’s plan as seen in the entire Bible.
