For over a century countless readers have found in Andrew Murray a trustworthy guide to the deeper Christian life. As a pastor, evangelist, educator, and writer driven by concern for the spiritual guidance of new converts--and for revival in long-time believers--Murray penned some of the most enduring devotional classics of Christian literature. Though he ministered in a deeply-divided nation, his vision seemed blind to race, class, or political persuasion. And from a remote corner of South Africa, his preaching, teaching, and writing would eventually fuel spiritual awakening with a worldwide impact.
This edition pairs Humility and Absolute Surrender in one volume. Together these classics reflect Murray's longing for a closer walk with Christ, and call us to a life of holiness and virtue, empowered not by our own strength but by the indwelling Holy Spirit. Hardcover.

Greatly concerned for the spiritual guidance of new converts, and for spiritual growth in long-time Christians, Murray penned some of the most enduring devotional classics of Christian literature.

Andrew Murray (1828-1917) lived and ministered as both a pastor and a writer from the towns and villages of South Africa. Originally written in Dutch, his books were translated into English. As his popularity grew, Murray's books found their way into more than twelve foreign languages during his lifetime.

Esther Hendrickson5 Stars Out Of 5May 27, 2010Esther HendricksonBrought a few copies of this book over the year, first it was Absolute Surrender, then "Humility". I'm quite pleased that they made two great books into one and it's a better gift. Personally, I love the book and it's one of those books that can't be read in one seating and must be read over and over again to get the fullness of the message.
