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. The two beloved works in this volume reflect Murray's longing for a deeper life in Christ, and his prayer that others would long for and experience that life as well.
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.
