This man wrote like an angel! He is the Max Lucado of the 19th Century. And compelling!Some say that he uses old english. Maybe. His books are over 100 years old. He does often write backwards or sidewise; that is, instead of saying: "You can tell an honest man by his eyes." He might say, "By gazing into his eyes, one can discern a man's honesty." We tend to write in short sentences, and to be very direct. Murray writes in complex sentences, in an indirect manner. Sometimes he even uses words or expressions that we don't have anymore. Example: He may say "God will discover it to you." We would say "God will reveal it to you." His style is musical - almost poetic. When I read him, I often do so out-loud, so I can emphasize his phrases in a way that will help me to soak it in. He writes so positively and with such encouragement and such hope! You'll find yourself getting more excited with every word!And, Oh! What truths!Do you want to be truly Holy? Then read "Humility and Absolute Surrender". Murray knows the way!
I read Absolute Surrender when I first came to know Jesus as my personal savior. I cried on almost every page. Understanding the depth of His heart for me was healing as well as comforting. I wanted nothing more to surrender my everything to the purpose Jesus had in store for me.I am reading this book with a church group (a book of the month). It is as profound today as it was almost 30 years ago. The subject is timeless and timely. It is a book that stirs within. It drives home truths and bring forth desires to reevaluate our personal walk with the Lord. The want for change, for surrender is paramount to everything else. The heart cries for complete surrender to the One who fills us. This book is worth the read. You will find yourself humbled and surrendering willingly.
