The Collected Works of Witness Lee, 1978, volume 3, contains messages given by Brother Witness Lee from August 22 through December 31. From the beginning of this period until the end of the third week in September, Brother Lee ministered in Boston, Massachusetts; Washington, D.C.; New York City; Atlanta, Georgia; Miami, Florida; Toronto, Canada; Cleveland, Ohio; and Chicago, Illinois. He then returned to Anaheim and remained there until the end of the first week in November, after which he visited Spokane and Moses Lake, Washington; Vancouver, Canada; Seattle, Washington; and Dallas, Texas. At the beginning of December he returned to Anaheim and, except for a one-day visit to Irvine, California, remained there until the end of the year. The contents of this volume are divided into ten sections, as follows: 1. Five messages given in Boston, Massachusetts, on August 22 through 28. The contents of these messages were taken from personal notes taken by attendees in the meetings. The messages were edited and combined into four chapters. They are included in this volume under the title The Vision in the Lord's Recovery--Christ as Life for the Church as His Body. 2. Four messages given in Washington, D.C., on August 29 through September 1. These messages were previously published in a book entitled Crucial Principles for the Proper Church Life and are included in this volume under the same title. 3. Six messages given in New York City on September 1 through 4. They were previously published in a book entitled Crucial Elements of God's Economy and are included in this volume under the same title. 4. Nine messages given in Atlanta, Georgia; Miami, Florida; and Toronto, Canada, on September 5 through 14. They were previously published in a book entitled The Healthy Word and are included in this volume under the same title. 5. Eight messages given in Cleveland, Ohio, and Chicago, Illinois, on September 15 through 20. These messages were previously published in a book entitled The Recovery of Christ as Everything in the Church and are included in this volume under the same title. 6. Eleven messages given in Anaheim, California, on September 29 through December 16. They were previously published as part of a three-volume set containing messages given by Brother Lee during the years 1978 and 1979.

About the author

Born in 1905 in northern China, Witness Lee was raised in a Christian family and educated in English-speaking schools. At the age of 19 he believed in the Lord Jesus Christ and consecrated himself to preach the gospel. Early in his service, Witness Lee met Watchman Nee and began to labor together with him. In 1949 Witness Lee was sent by Watchman Nee to Taiwan to ensure that the things delivered to them by the Lord would be preserved. In 1962 Witness Lee came to the United States and began to minister here. He ministered in weekly conferences, delivering several thousand spoken messages until 1997. He gave his last public conference in February 1997 at the age of 91. His major work, Life-Study of the Bible, comprises over 25,000 pages of commentary on every book of the Bible from the perspective of the believers' enjoyment and experience of God's divine life in Christ through the Spirit.
