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.
This Murray devotional is about the holy sacrament of communion, explaining how it cleanses and purifies souls, what the Bible says about it, and ultimately the redemption of Jesus. This edition of Murray’s The Power of the Blood of Jesus is specially formatted with a Table of Contents and over a dozen images of the great missionary.
