A challenge for Christians today is to live and walk through life with integrity. Holy in Christ offers a detailed look at the principles and practices of holiness. Divided into 31 chapters, Murray's classic is ideal as a month long devotional. In each chapter, Murray explains a Biblical passage, includes a prayer, and gives several points of application.
About the Author
Andrew Murray Jr. (1828-1917) was the second child of Andrew Murray Sr., a Dutch Reformed Church missionary sent from Scotland to South Africa. Andrew Murray Jr. was Born in Cape Town, South Africa. His mother had connections with both French Huguenots and German Lutherans. Andrew was sent to Aberdeen in Scotland for his initial education together with his elder brother, John. Both remained there until they obtained their M.A in 1845. From there they both went to the University of Utrecht where they studied theology. Both brothers were ordained by the Hague Committee of the Dutch Reformed Church on May 9, 1848 and returned to the Cape.
Andrew pastored churches in Bloemfontein, Worcester, Cape Town and Wellington, all in South Africa. Murray married Emma Rutherford in Cape Town, South Africa, on July 2, 1856. They had eight children together, four boys and four girls. He was an amazingly prolific Christian author. All of his publications were originally written in Dutch and then translated into English. As his popularity grew, Murray's books found their way into more than twelve foreign languages during his lifetime alone.
In 1889, he was one of the founders of the South African General Mission (SAGM), along with Martha Osborn and Spencer Walton. After Martha Osborn married George Howe, they formed the South East Africa General Mission (SEAGM) in 1891. SAGM and SEAGM merged in 1894. Because its ministry had spread into other African countries, the mission's name was changed to Africa Evangelical Fellowship (AEF) in 1965. AEF joined with SIM in 1998 and continues to this day. Murray was an alert and intense man, he died on January 18, 1917, four months before his eighty-ninth birthday. His burning desire to transpose all that lay on his heart and spirit to paper was revealed in the presence of several manuscripts in various stages of completion at the time of his death.
