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 Raising Your Children For Christ?
I wish I had read this book years ago. Jul 8, 2004
I came across this book 19 years and 9 children into my marriage - I wish it had been much sooner. It is not so much a parenting "how-to" as it is a "why-to" book. Through 52 short chapters, Andrew Murray takes you through scripture after scripture, showing the centrality of Christ in the raising of children. I used the book as part of my morning devotion for the last couple of months and was challenged day after day with the awesome responsibility God entrusts to Christian parents. I highly recommend this book.
An inspiring and challenging call to purposeful parenting May 5, 2000
A biblically based work focusing on the obligation of Christian parents to train their children to serve Christ and reminding us of God's promise that our prayers and efforts will not go unrewarded. Chapters are short and readable. The author spares us cute stories and focuses instead on biblical examples, exhortations and promises. Stresses no-nonsense, disciplined parenting and hierarchical family structure. Prayer, self-sacrifice and diligence are constant refrains. I was particularly encouraged by his explanation why teaching your children to honor others and exhibit proper manners is crucial to their spiritual development. Highly recommended.
