Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In his time, Andrew Murray was alarmed by how few believers lived wholeheartedly for God and truly displayed to the world the abundant life promised by Jesus Christ. More than a century later, Christians are still living powerless, impoverished spiritual lives, and a media-savvy world dismisses the church as irrelevant. One of the most powerful voices of the nineteenth century, Murray speaks to today’s church from across the years, exhorting us to begin each day by seeking the living God, giving Him time every morning to reveal Himself anew. For this stunning new devotional, contemporary bestselling author Bruce Wilkinson presents 365 gems from the treasury of writings by Andrew Murray. Wilkinson introduces each month’s readings with an overview of the thematic approach for the coming devotions. Each month features the very best of Murray’s work centering on a different aspect of cultivating a deeper and richer spiritual life.

[Head:] Eternal Wisdom from Another Time and Place

Just when your soul is cracking from spiritual drought, a voice comes from the past. A voice rich with wisdom, knowledge, and insight. A voice familiar to those on a faraway continent.

Now available in modern English for the first time in the United States, these precious daily devotions of Andrew Murray, the well-known and revered nineteenth-century South African pastor, will invigorate your soul and take your spiritual journey to new heights. An incredible man of God, Murray longed for every Christian to experience a more intimate relationship with the Lord.

“The more time you spend in God’s presence, making His thoughts and will your own, the stronger your faith will grow that God will use your prayers in the carrying out of His plan of redemption.” —Andrew Murray

Story Behind the Book

Having just moved to Johannesburg, South Africa, in the summer of 2002, Bruce Wilkinson sought a new devotional book to read. He rediscovered the collective works of South African pastor and teacher Andrew Murray. This year represents the 175th anniversary of his birth, and what better way to honor a true man of God than by introducing a new generation to the lessons learned on his incredible journey with Christ?
