Lee broke Christianity down into 3 categories:

the fundamentalist groups (focussed on knowledge/facts as in the Bible, doctrines)
the pentecostal groups (focussed on works of power, gifts, miracles, emotions)
the "inner life" groups (focussed on the subjective Christ, mysticism, intuition ).

Each of these groups use the same Bible but emphasize different aspects.

It just so happened that most of western Christianity was not familiar with the third inner life group teachings, so they seemed strange, different, even new. But actually they were not new teachings, just teachings that were less emphasized. So while a fundamentalist would draw out the facts and figures of a certain passage, and the pentecostal would draw out the outward miracles and works of power, the inner lifers would draw out the aspects of subjective experience.
