Item description for Collected Writings of John Murray: Life of John Murray Sermons and Reviews (Collected Writings of John Murray) by John Murray...
Overview Since the publication of volumes one and two of the Collected Writings of John Murray, this third volume in the series has been eagerly awaited. As promised, it contains an extensive account of Murray's life and the first published collection of his sermons. Added to these are the penetrating and valuable book reviews which he contributed to The Westminister Theological Journal during the period 1939-1953. Iain H. Murray's biography of John Murray traces his life fom his boyhood days in the north of Scotland at the turn of the century, through the First World War (in which he suffered the loss of one eye), his theological training at Princeton and his long ministry as a Seminary Professor in Philadelphia, until his retirement, his return to his native Scotland, and his late marriage and brief period of fatherhood. The biography closes with a moving account of his last days during the early months of 1974. Preaching was never merely an adjunct to Murray's work. On the contrary it was,for him, the reason why the teaching of theology exists. By his own example as a preacher he showed how all the great peaks and valleys of divine revelation are intended 'to lead needy men and women into the riches of God's counsel'. His sermons, including examples of his brief 'table addresses' given at communion services, exhibit the wonderful balance between profound theology and personal devotion to Christ as Saviour and Lord in which he passionately believed.
Publishers Description A biographical account of Murray's life and long teaching career (by Iain H. Murray) is followed by the first published collection of his sermons, including some of his communion addresses, and many reviews.
