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.

Better than an agreement Jan 3, 2007
Very good book, I highly recommend this book to all that do no have knowledge of covenants. This book gives a detail explaination of the covenants.
Two Covenants: Your Blessings in Christ Moving from Promise to Fulfillment Nov 7, 2006
Excellent presentation of what a covenant child of God should know about this sacred union. This message of the Hesed should be researched, meditated and owned by every true child of God. I have studied over a dozen books on this subject, most of them are very good, but none surpass Andrew Murray's.
I know it's a Cliche, but You Must Read this Book! May 4, 2006
If there is one book a Christian should read, it's this one. I know many people have said that about many different books, but this one deserves to be read. It establishes the foundation of the Christain faith and teaches things that should be taught in church (but are not currently). It is full of the Life of Jesus and how that Life is given to us.
It compares the Old Covanent with the New and disspells many errors that are promanent these days. The english is a bit hard to read (written in 1898), but at the same time it makes you think (which is good).
Considering how many shallow "Christian" books there are right now (i.e. Purpose Driven Life, Your Best Life Now), this one is deep with divine Truth and Life(the real life of Jesus) that will comfort and challenge you.
