HUMILITY..... The deepest humility is the secret of the truest happiness, of a joy that nothing can destroy. Andrew Murray Audio excerpts download Color timeline Illustrated Detailed indexes Author biographies A thorough study guide Sensitively revised in modern English One of an expanding collection People of great ability, confidence, and power are also people of great accomplishment. They have every right to be proud. Or do they? Andrew Murray poses the question, and God provides the answer. Murray was a strong, capable man who was so ''in control'' that he tried to stop a revival in his church in South Africa for which his father had prayed for 60 years. But he soon discovered that power isn't rooted in pride. In truth, he learned that ''pride goes before destruction.'' God taught Murray the ways and rewards of humility, and its relationship to faith, holiness, happiness, peace, and exaltation. He shares the lessons he learned the hard way. Cleverly organized, easy to read, easy to understand, and deeply profound, this classic has been acclaimed as the greatest book ever written on the subject of humility.
South African pastor and author Andrew Murray, (1828-1917), one of four children was raised in the most remote corner of the world - Graaff-Reinet (near the Cape), South Africa, It was here, after his formal education in Scotland and three years of theological study,in Holland, that Andrew Murray returned as a missionary and minister. Murray's first appointment was to a remote and unattractive territory of nearly 50,000 square miles and 12,000 people.
In 1873, he helped to establish the Huguenot Seminary for girls. He also served as the first president of the Young Men's Christian Fellowship (YMCA).
Not only was Andrew Murray the author of over 240 books, he was also a man of great prayer. He began writing on the "deeper Christian life" - a favorite subject for Murray - for his congregation as an extension of his local pastoral work, but he became internationally known for his books, such as With Christ in the School of Prayerand Abide in Christ, that searched men's hearts and brought them into a deep relationship with Christ. Writing with an intensity of purpose and zeal for the message of the Gospel, Murray wrote numerous books even after his retirement at age seventy-eight. .- Publisher.
