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 must-read Nov 25, 2008
This is a 30-day devotional on the role of the Holy Spirit in the life of those who believe that God has redeemed them through Jesus Christ. It's the most insightful book I have ever read in my 31 years of calling myself a Christian. The relationship of God the Father with his son Jesus, the Spirit-led life, and the role of the church are all discussed at some point or other with the main focus being on who the Holy Spirit is. Each devotional includes scripture, insights, a summary, and a prayer. I actually spend several days on each devotional, reading and re-reading, looking up accompanying scriputre, etc.
I highly recommend this book for everyone...seekers, those curious about Chritianity, life-long believers, church leaders, and especially new Christians. I also encourage those from other faiths who want to know what Christianity and the church should really look like to pick up this book and read it. It will give you a clear picture of what following God looks like at its core without the strappings and flavor lent to Christianity by culture, denomination, history, and worship style. At least that's my two bits.
