More About Andrew Murray
South African pastor and author Andrew Murray (1828 1917)was an amazingly prolific writer. Murray began writing on the Christian life for his congregation as an extension of his local pastoral work, but he became internationally known for his books, such as With Christ in the School of Prayer and Abide in Christ, that searched men's hearts and brought them into a deeper relationship with Christ. With intense purpose and zeal for the message of the gospel, Murray wrote numerous books even after his "retirement" at age seventy-eight.
Andrew Murray was the second child of Andrew Murray Sr. (1794–1866), a Dutch Reformed Church missionary sent from Scotland to South Africa. Andrew Murray was born in Graaff Reinet, South Africa.
Andrew was sent to Aberdeen in Scotland for his initial education together with his elder brother, John. Both remained there until they obtained their master's degrees in 1845. From there, they both went to the University of Utrecht where they studied theology. The two brothers became members of Het Réveil, a religious revival movement opposed to the rationalism which was in vogue in the Netherlands at that time. Both brothers were ordained by the Hague Committee of the Dutch Reformed Church on 9 May 1848 and returned to the Cape.
Murray married Emma Rutherford in Cape Town, South Africa, on 2 July 1856. They had eight children together (four boys and four girls).
Religious work in South Africa.
Andrew pastored churches in Bloemfontein, Worcester, Cape Town and Wellington, all in South Africa. He was a champion of the South African Revival of 1860.
In 1889, he was one of the founders of the South African General Mission (SAGM), along with Martha Osborn and Spencer Walton. After Martha Osborn married George Howe, they formed the South East Africa General Mission (SEAGM) in 1891. SAGM and SEAGM merged in 1894. Because its ministry had spread into other African countries, the mission's name was changed to Africa Evangelical Fellowship (AEF) in 1965. AEF joined with SIM in 1998 and continues to this day.
Andrew Murray was born in 1828 and died in 1917.

I read the book Absolute Surrender by Andrew Murray and thereafter brought one more for a friend in Philippine. It is a very highly recommenced book for any Christian who want to learn how to surrender yourself to God should read this book. After reading through this book ,I am very much more aware of why we should surrender ourself to God if we want to have the full blessing from God. Is book written by a Man with God authority.

Life-Changing!!! Oct 28, 2006
This book absolutely changed my life!!! ..... As I was reading it -- the Holy Spirit was ever present ....... and I was on my knees in reverent prayer to God at the end of the book. God reaches out to everyone in different ways - and this book was one of those ways for me. I was so touched and moved - that I bought copies for everyone in my Bible Study group. I cannot recommend this book enough.
Absolute Surrender Mar 14, 2006
This is a wonderful book on how to surrender one's life to the Lord and it gives practical examples to illustrate the principles. It challenges me to live far above what I am currently doing and it also encourages me that God is the one who helps and enables me to life a surrendered life. I can have complete peace when I surrender to the Lord all that I have and all that I am.
Deeper Life in Christ Mar 9, 2006
This book by Andrew Murray is for the Christian that is unhappy with an ordinary life and are not experiencing sincere love, joy, peace, patience, and all other aspects of the Holy Spirit in their lives. God saves and indends for his children to have an abundant life here on earth and the way to move into the abundant life is by absolute surrender. Yes, the key to victory is by surrender! This is God's way, not man's.
Classic of Classics!!! Nov 6, 2005
