Andrew Murray, who strongly believed that missions are the chief end of the church, never tired of spreading the word about the powerful work of the Spirit through the blood of Christ. In both his sacrificial life and his writings, Murray explained the mystery of Christ’s blood as our precious source of life. In The Blood and the Spirit, he reflects on the tremendous power that Christ’s blood has for each of us if we accept it as our rightful inheritance and rely upon it to protect and enable us to accomplish our purposes in God. It will fill you with a true, solemn thanksgiving for Good Friday and a joyful appreciation of Easter Sunday.
About the Author
South African pastor and author Andrew Murray (1828–1917) was an amazingly prolific writer. Murray began writing on the Christian life for his congregation as an extension of his local pastoral work, but he became internationally known for his best-selling books, including With Christ in the School of Prayer and Abide in Christ, that searched men’s hearts and brought them into a deeper relationship with Christ. With intense purpose and zeal for the message of the gospel, Murray wrote numerous books even after his “retirement” at age seventy-eight.
