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.

I am a Communion Leader in our church and found this book in the Koorong Book Shop written by Andrew Murray, one of my favourite author. This book offers daily reading over 2 weeks and unveil the meaning, purpose and power of The Lord's Table. It leads you through a week of preparation heading up to Sunday. The readings and focus on Jesus when I silenced my mind and heart were always a very precious time and I could prepare my soul by bowing before my King in gratitude leading up to the Lord's Supper. I learned how important the Lord's Supper for us sinners is and we should all highly value this privilege to participate and receive forgiveness that brings us reconciliation with the Father through the covenant with Jesus .It then guides you through the day of Communion and provides daily reading for the week after. The Lord's Supper brings hope, peace, forgiveness, offers you the covenant with Jesus and eternal life. This book brings you so close to Jesus heart and the deep engagement into the Lord's Table. This book is an excellent gift for Ministers, Pastors, Missionaries or Communion member or leader.
