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.

The first book to be read on true Christianity Aug 18, 2006
In this book, Andrew Murray touches on the basic principles for the Christian who is recently saved. First, he focuses on the importance of READING THE WORD and how we are to understand what it means by relying in faith on the power of Christ. Then he points to the blessings of SURRENDER to Christ and taking the gifts of Christ in faith. Then he deals with the issue of ACTS OF SIN by confessing it to God and receiving forgiveness by faith in Christ. Then Mr. Murray introduces the Holy Spirit as the One who can be grieved by sin but also the One who opposes the SIN NATURE in humans. The Holy Spirit is the One who can conquer the flesh by faith. Then the author points to positive ACTS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS empowered by faith in God. Mr. Murray then explains the SACRAMENTS of the church. In conclusion, the author points to the denial of the will, or the SELF-NATURE and instead by faith, accepting and doing the will of God.
