Nee was never given to drawn-out exegesis, so theology students and word study aficionados will likely be disappointed, but the basis for his points is quite solid, I think. He works like an experienced attorney writing a brief: he doesn't meander and assumes you already know the basis of his points. Some of his illustrations are perhaps a bit less clever than modern readers would like, but only some. On the other hand, there are no "clever" turns of phrase or [cheesy?] cliches, either.
Jaded "Word of Faith" folks might shut down during his section on faith. But if you've worked through the first two-thirds of the book, you have just fresh enough of an approach to take the tarnish off the "faith teaching." And it helps to remember that he wrote this in the late 1930's--if anything, the faith folks were reading him and not vice-versus.
A worthy read and a valuable resource, especially for those who have no illusions of their own faults and still can't get away from the idea that faith is, after all, still important.
