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.

Reviews - What do customers think about Humility & Absolute Surrender (Hendrickson Christian Classics)?
Personal Humility Dec 28, 2008
This book was a tough read. A group of guys did this book as a bible study and it was a tough one from a self reflection aspect. My advice, be prepared for a meaty reading that will take several months to devour and reflect.
Heaven is better Aug 31, 2008
This is one of the best books I've ever read, but it is necessary to read it slowly and carefully. A quick read will not do. A successful Christian walk depends upon the principles outlined here. I bought more and sent them to people I felt would benefit from the challenges presented in the book.
An Awakening For Eternity Apr 18, 2008
Other than the Holy Bible itself, and whether you are a new Christian or a Christian who has been seeking greater knowledge of God for a long time, nowhere will you find a more spiritual awakening and understanding of what God requires of you to fully enjoy His presence than Andrew Murray's "Humility & Absolute Surrender". Buy all of these you can and give to those who will read them. A true Christian will be truly grateful.
Just a Closer Walk With Thee May 14, 2007
This is a classic. Though written in 1895, the author's comments and direction speak loudly and clearly to this time and circumstances because it speaks from the unchanging Word of God. It is a blessing for any Christian who wants to draw nearer to God and His purpose for their life.
