More About andrew murray & Harold J. Chadwick
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.

quality prayer book Mar 20, 2007
this is good stuff with a mix of some exegetical insight and of course his own personal experiences with prayer, it gave my faith a boost in that i have greater confidence in seeing God answer prayers.
It will absolutely change your prayer life!! Jan 12, 2007
Second to the bible, this is my favorite book of all time. I believe it will open your eyes to what prayer and intimacy with God can and should actually be like (as well as how far we've fallen/ how distorted our view of prayer tends to be!). Other than the Word, there are few books (at least of those that are not so sophisticated as to be beyond comprehension) that I can read over and over and never fail to discover something new each time. But this one I have been reading for years, and it NEVER grows old.
Enlightening and Empowering, NOT just a book on prayer. Nov 9, 2006
I purchased the paperback ed. 1981, 238 pages. This is an exceptional book. Each of the 31 chapters breaks down what prayer is and why we are to pray and then a well thought out prayer is offered, which I might add spoke to what I was thinking in each chapter. It is not a book to read about prayer, but, to be studied. I took a chapter a day, read it and pondered it throughout the day. The author breaks down prayer, its parts and explains through scripture why these parts are important. Chapters 20 and 21 brought everything together for me emphasising why our prayers have not been answered in the past and how to make changes for effective prayers. This is a must for anyone wishing to strengthen their prayer life and consequently their faith.
A great month-long devotional journey Aug 19, 2005
I am a pastor, and I have been using this book in my devotional life. I began on the first day of August, and have read one chapter per day. The reading for each day is short enough to not be a burden, but meaty enough to give me plenty to think about. Each chapter ends with a prayer which I have made my own. This book really is "a school" of prayer: I'm now on day 19, and I can truly say that I have learned lots and my prayer life has deepened. Even as a pastor with seminary training, I have been challenged by this book. It is a classic that speaks on many levels, and I imagine that I will take this journey again in subsequent years. I heartily recommend this book to anyone, clergy or lay, who wants a stronger prayer life.
A Foundational Book on Prayer! Aug 19, 2004
The principles on this Murray book by Whitaker, I have used extensively!! Thank God that Whitaker House keeps printing books written by Andrew Murray! If it were not for Whitaker House publishing their books, we would not have Murray books to share with others (as well as study ourselves). All five of my Andrew Murray "Believer's Secret" books, published by Bethany House Publishers are out of print.
Charles Finney and Andrew Murray wrote the best books on the Holy Spirit, Prayer, Revival, and Holiness that I have ever read. You cannot go wrong buying any Murray books published by Whitaker House! So I say again, thank God for Whitaker House!
I believe those of you who enjoy Finney and Murray will also enjoy "Prayer Steps to Serenity," which teaches truths that I learned from studying Finney and Murray for many years. The book follows a 12 Steps and Serenity Prayer format. It is available through this site, with ISBN 0595313043. If you know of anyone who is looking for a 12 Step devotional that will help them walk in the power of the Holy Spirit according to the scriptures, you can heartily recommend this book to them. "Prayer Steps to Serenity" was not published by Whitaker House, and it is a larger than a trade paperback (a 9 inch by 6 inch paperback) that includes devotional readings, prayers to encourage you to keep on praying as the Holy Spirit leads, a personal Journey Guide (or workbook), and a Group Journey Guide for prayer and support groups. "Prayer Steps to Serenity" is also supported by two websites that offer a lot of free guides and resources for those seeking more information about Christian recovery and starting Serenity Groups. Go to PrayerSteps.org or SerenityGroups.org for more information.
