Description

Andrew Murray (1828-1917) was a South-African Dutch Reformed leader, author of devotional writings. Born in Cape Town, South Africa, Murray became a noted missionary leader. He was one of the chief promoters of the call to missions in South Africa. This led to the Dutch Reformed Church missions to blacks in the Transvaal and Malawi. Apart from his evangelistic tours in South Africa, he spoke at the Keswick and Northfield Conventions in 1895, making a great impression. upon his British and American audiences. For his contribution to world missions he was given an honorary doctorate by the universities of Aberdeen (1898) and Cape of Good Hope (1907).
Murray is best known today for his devotional writings, which place great emphasis on the need for a rich, personal devotional life. Many of his 240 publications explain in how he saw this devotion and its outworking in the life of the Christian. Several of his books have become devotional classics. Among these are Abide in Christ, Absolute Surrender, With Christ in the School of Prayer, The Spirit of Christ and Waiting on God. 
With Christ in the School of Prayer is one of Murray's few full length books, and it's meant to explain that prayer is not a chore or task within faith. Prayer is supposed to be an actual way of communing with God that lifts your spirits. 
This edition of Murray’s With Christ in the School of Prayer is specially formatted with a Table of Contents and images of the great theologian.

    Quite possibly the most influential book I have ever read. I read it two times, meditating on the truths it contains on the prayer life modeled by Jesus. If you read it prayerfully, it will change your prayer life from occasional and ineffective to continual and effective. You will join our Savior as a priest in bringing the blessings of God to earth and His elect to heaven.
