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.

One of four children, Andrew Murray was born in Graaff-Reinet, South Africa. It was there, after his formal education in Scotland and three years of theological study in Holland, that Andrew Murray returned as a missionary and minister. In 1873 he helped establish the Huguenot Seminary, a school where young women could be trained for educational work. Murray also served as the first president of the Young Men's Christian Fellowship (YMCA). He authored over 240 books and was a man of great prayer. Abiding in Christ was the cornerstone to Andrew Murray's life and ministry. He wrote, "Abide in Jesus: your life in Him will lead you to that fellowship with God in which the only true knowledge of God is to be had. His love, His power, His infinite glory will, as you abide in Jesus, be so revealed as it hath not entered into the heart of man to conceive." He and his wife, Emma, had nine children.
