A Masterful Exposition And Fundamental Fruit
Murray has left us a legacy of a high standard to emulate. This Christ-like virtue is not found in any religion.
This work has definitely got to be the best and most profound on the subject of humility, the fruit of the Spirit. There is no other challenger to this title today.
The matter at hand simply cannot be overstated enough, and if applied, is sure to bring fruit to all Christians alike.
A Christian classic.
A great discipling tool that will chisel pride out of your heart
This book delivers way more than one would expect. First of all it is not that long of a book. But it takes a long time to read because you cannot breeze through it. Written by a South African pastor in the 1800's, this book has a woodenness to the english that slows you down. This is good because the topic is so deep that you want to stop and pray every page or two.
It leveled me to the ground about 12 years ago. It is still at the top of my list.
As a pastor, I have recommended this book to many, many people. It usually changes their lives. The fruit tends to be enduring and deep.
I first encountered it when I was a YWAM student. It was required reading in our discipleship school. I think this book should be read by every Christian. If you don't have a copy, buy an extra one so that you can have a loaner.
Humble yourself in the sight of the Lord...
Anddrew Murray writes with the simplicity and love of a pastor, without soft-soaping or sugar-coating the truth. His abandonment and love for Christ is evident in all of his works and, therefore, qualifies him, in my opinion, to write a book on humility. You can tell he has experienced humility and that it is not just an intellectual excercise.
The one thing I took away from this book is that humility is indeed an experience; you can hear about the need to be humble, read, and even study about it. But unless the Spirit makes humility real personally to the individual, it is possible to become haughty about the need for being humble.
Andrew Murray's works have added so much to my Christian life; I feel closer to G-d because of the things he has written.
