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.

A Great Devotional Jan 26, 2009
Andrew Murray is a great Christian writer & this devotional is bits & pieces of his writings. It is a very fine devotional for individual or group use.
Blown away with pleasure over this treasure Jan 8, 2009
For years I've been "splurgin' on Spurgeon" and relishing the meat of Oswald Chambers' writings. As a life-long lover of God's Word, Bible teacher and devotional writer, I crave being mentored by seasoned saints whose encouragements and exhortations have stood the test of time. An astute friend surprised me with the gift of this devotional last October and in an instant I took to Andrew Murray as a fish takes to water. I'm a sucker for good writing and the hard-hitting truths of the Bible that "comfort the shaken and shake the comfortable," as one wag put it. This book delivers and delights. More than that, it translates groans into growth. At age 73 I was diagnosed with breast cancer last spring, had two surgeries and chemo therapy. Andrew Murray came on board - thank you, Marilyn - when I was about to discover the fascinating world of radiation. And here is my punch line: As God's well satisfied child, and well nourished by these devotional writings, I'm resolved that my life must not be about survival, but REVIVAL. That relentless desire marked Andrew Murray's ministry. Born in 1828 in South Africa, he has joined the top of my list of OLDIES, BUT GOODIES. Get hooked and be delighted yourself!
great choice in devotionals May 12, 2007
I am a huge fan of Andrew Murray's works, but I do not usually care for his works that have been "updated for the modern reader". Such works are usually poorly done and tend to lose the literary and spiritual impact. This devotional, I'm pleased to say, has not slaughtered the author's works. It is an accurate representation and well worth the study. The cover design of this particular edition is lacking in both appeal and modesty. However, a book cover can remedy that quickly.
