    Definitely a good book with an excellent topic. However, very difficult to read and stay focused on. I felt as though Murray kept saying the same thing over and over again. Got kind of boring and became a drag to finish.

    if you've kept up with my "currently reading" section, you're probably thinking, "how long does it freakin' take to read that book?!" truthfully, not long. this isnt a big book. i just wanted to thoroughly go through it and pay attention to what Murray had to say. and he said a LOT. this is a book that is so illuminating, that i have to tell people that its a must-read book for anyone who is born-again. you really dont understand the depths of pride in your heart until you read something like thi if you've kept up with my "currently reading" section, you're probably thinking, "how long does it freakin' take to read that book?!" truthfully, not long. this isnt a big book. i just wanted to thoroughly go through it and pay attention to what Murray had to say. and he said a LOT. this is a book that is so illuminating, that i have to tell people that its a must-read book for anyone who is born-again. you really dont understand the depths of pride in your heart until you read something like this and say, "Whoa...i didnt think i was that bad..." more than that, though, it talks about humility and what true humility really is: being nothing so that God can be everything. then he goes into the humility of Jesus and describes just how humble Christ was. there are other goodies in here. there is a bunch of his sermons in here, and they are all good. i initially bought the book for the sermon "Absolute Surrender", which was fantastic. (i heard that Evan Roberts read that before the Welsh Revival hit). but i was most impacted by Humility.

    Devotional reading. Here's a couple of pithy quotes. From Humility: In an address I lately heard, the speaker said that the blessings of the higher Christian life were often like the objects exposed in a shop window-- one could see them clearly, and yet could not reach them. If told to stretch out his hand and take, a man would answer, "I cannot: there is a thick pane of plate-glass between me and them." And even so, Christians may clearly see the blessed promises of perfect peace and rest, of ove Devotional reading. Here's a couple of pithy quotes.

If told to stretch out his hand and take, a man would answer, "I cannot: there is a thick pane of plate-glass between me and them." And even so, Christians may clearly see the blessed promises of perfect peace and rest, of overflowing love and joy, of abiding communion and fruitfulness, and yet feel there was something between, hindering the true possession. And what might that be? Nothing but pride. From Absolute Surrender: All around you there is a world of sin and sorrow, and the Devil is there. But remember, Christ is on the throne, Christ is stronger, Christ has conquered, and Christ will conquer. "Absolute Surrender" is not the same content as The Believer's Absolute Surrender.

    This is a good book with on an excellent topic. However, it is very difficult to read and stay focused on, due to the repetition of the subject. Andrew Murray kept saying the same thing over and over again but with different Biblical references which made it kind of boring. The last section was the best in both dialog and reference.

    Your Christian life is to be a continuous proof that God works impossibilities. Took me a little to get into because this book is in desperate need of an editor, but overall it's an insightful read about learning what it means to fully depend on God.

    Two classic pieces in one volume. Originally written over a hundred years ago yet timeless in its message.

    Classic principals of the Christian faith that are not discussed enough make this a needed read for the times of today as much as a hundred plus years ago.

    Humility and Absolute Surrender is a treasure trove of Biblical insight provided by Andrew Murray, who was a pastor, evangelist, and author from South Africa 1828-1917. Although the devotions in this book were written in the late 1800's, the advice it holds is timeless and ever so relevant for Christians today. In it, Murray uncovers what true humility is and how it makes the way for God to fill us and use us for His purposes.

    This was definitely one of the most insightful books I have ever read. I couldn't stop highlighting, re-reading sections and sharing what I was learning from this book. I can say this will be one that I will pick up again and again and use as tool for seeking biblical wisdom in the future. The book was written sometime before 1928, so the writing style was sometimes hard to follow and I would have to read a sentence over and over to get what it was saying, but that didn't stop me from continuing This was definitely one of the most insightful books I have ever read.

    We tend to set aside classics, believing they are somehow less relevant to our current condition. The man who wrote this died in 1917, but nothing has changed. If underlines and margin notes are any indication this is one powerful book. It is only 161 pages. Do yourself a favor and read it.

    Another excellent book by Murray! I took one and half years to read this two book combo. It is full of great insights and challenging nuggets. I enjoyed including this book in my daily quiet time.
