We know that it is the desire and purpose of God’s heart to secure a corporate man, having His image, manifesting His glory, and exercising His authority to deal with His enemy—all in order that He Himself may obtain eternal rest.

Thank God that in these last days, days of such spiritual need, He has revealed through our brother His marvelous and mysterious way of life in such a way that every believer may comprehend and make it his own.

It is indeed magnificent. The contents discuss the experience of life in nineteen items, explaining the experience of the various stages of spiritual life and the way of pursuing the Lord.
