The Andrew Murray Daily Reader

by Andrew Murray

Review  |   Author Bio  |  Read an Excerpt


We are indeed, “compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses” (Hebrews 12:1). And one of those witnesses is the great ‘Apostle of Abiding Love,’ Andrew Murray. A year’s worth of devotions, The Andrew Murray Daily Reader will be welcomed by his old friends, while drawing in new ones. Presented with slight alterations that bring Murray’s words into today’s idiom, the reader will daily read thoughts garnered from Murray’s writings and illumined by apropos scripture. Appropriately starting with the abiding love of our Savior, subjects range from divine healing to believing prayer to waiting on God, from absolute surrender to commitment to daily renewal, with ever and again abiding in Christ.

An introductory chapter relates Andrew Murray’s biography (he proposed to his future wife a few weeks after he met her). Born in 1828, Murray was South Africa’s gift to the Christian world. Several writings in the bibliography encourage further reading.

An attractive, hardbound volume, The Andrew Murray Daily Reader, provides healthy, palatable food for individual meditation, material for homilies and lessons, and will make a welcome gift. – Donna Eggett, Christian Book
