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.

Terrible "Updated" Version Dec 6, 2005
Who would take the liberty to 'rewrite' someone's words in the name of updating them? Murray is eloquent, and hardly difficult enough to need modernizing. Every page I compare of this update with Murray's original leaves me sorely disappointed. The update removes subtleties, turns Murray's eloquence into cheap language, and sometimes just plain changes the meaning. No one updates Shakespeare. This update only gives a rough idea of Murray's intent, and often changes the meaning to a Gnostic drive for power. To know what Murray really intended, by all means find an old used copy. This is worthless.
WONDERFUL Dec 2, 2005
A friend lent me this book and I thought 500 something pages, no way, but as soon as I started reading it...wow! You just gotta love it! It's setup devotional style. Read a chapter a day and you'll have it licked in no time!
holiest of all by andrew murray Sep 11, 2005
I recommend this book to anyone who does not understand the way into the holiest....Holy place
wonderful devotional commentary. Jun 15, 2004
this book isn't an exhaustive commentary but rather a enlightning devotional. Andrew Murray speaks from his relationship with God in the holy of holies, writing about the wonderful truths of hebrews - the rest of God, the new covenant, Melchizidek our great High priest, the holy of holies - all of these truths are the result of the relationship we have with Jesus Christ. Jesus is our rest, He is our high Priest, He is the Holy of Holies - its all about Jesus and the grace which He has lavished on us through the blood of the eternal covenant - "let us be diligent to enter that rest" (Hebrews 4:11), the rest which is the result of the relationship we have with Jesus.
