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 Secret Of Spiritual Strength?
Uncertain about spiritual exercises Oct 13, 2009
I was put off, in spite of my admiration for Andrew Murray's writings, by the practice of spiritual exercises. Having followed the "mystical" for a short period of time when I was a new Christian, many years ago, this was too closely alighed with that in my mind. I can speak only for my own generation, and think probably it was true in all past generations, but I believe many Christians want feelings, actually physical in some cases, to confirm the reality of God's presence. If one needs feelings for proof, where does faith come in? And then obedience? I was truly disappointed, but still have two more of Murray's books to read.
Blessings Far Exceeding Your Level to Comprehend Apr 7, 2008
There a three main points to the five chapters of this rather short book: 1.) Most believers don't move beyond having a burning heart for God and having the more rewarding and blessed experience of God revealing Himself to us in our prayers; 2.) The practice of the presence of God and the revealing gifts it brings; and 3.) Knowing the true mystery of the Cross. Surely the Cross is our salvation but, more importantly, it is also our sanctification, victory and refuge in a world where we the believer found ourselves living in but not being of it. These three points Andrew Murray keeps driving home to the reader in a style that is uniquely his. Although "The Secret of Spiritual Strength" is a short book (92 pages), don't let that lead you into thinking it's an easy read or is an indication of the level of impact it will have on you as a Christian. Without a doubt, the reader will find the need to read, re-read and yet re-read it again. I can't image that I'll ever be "finished" with reading it, knowing the wonderful blessings from God it brings when incorporating the principles it ascribes.
