    What if I told you that Andrew Murray was fifty-four before God stopped him in his tracks?

    In 1860, thirty-two-year-old Andrew Murray unexpectedly becomes the key leader in a revival that spreads throughout the Cape and beyond. But barely two years later, he discovers that he has lost the blessings gained during the revival, and has started to strive in his own strength again. Although he consecrates his life anew, the experience of the filling with the Holy Spirit, he so longs to receive, fails to eventuate.


    He nevertheless hangs on in faith through bitter court battles with liberals, missionary endeavors, and educational projects, ever wondering when God will seal his consecration with the desired experience—that is, until God stops him in his tracks, thus forcing him to confront the barriers that are blocking the blessing.


    This is a true story of Andrew Murray’s spiritual journey between 1860 and 1882. You will learn about:

    • His misconceptions regarding revival
    • His leadership skills when doing battle with the Liberals
    • His vision for missions and women’s education
    • His dependence on God to open doors
    • His approach to healing by building up his faith
    • His realization that the vessel God has cleansed He will undoubtedly fill

    I've combined the two books I published in 2014 and 2015 on Keswick and Exeter Hall, respectively. This combined version includes Andrew Murray's testimony he gave at Keswick in 1882, just a week after his serious throat complaint was miraculously healed while at the Bethshan Home of Faith Healing in London.It does not appear in the original version of Andrew Murray at Keswick, although his later 1895 one does.


    Of particular note is the fact that it was at the 1882 Keswick Convention that he received a special touch from the Lord. He was so overjoyed about what he had experienced that he gave his testimony at the Ministers'Testimony Meeting at the end of the Convention, then duly published it in the Life of Faith in October 1882.


    The detailed story of what occurred is told in my novel Andrew Murray: From Spark to Flame.

    Talks that will enable you to ‘hear’ Andrew Murray preach

    If you count Andrew Murray as one of your heroes of the faith, or have read some of his published works, then these six talks are sure to find a special place in your heart. They are basically word for word as he delivered them.


    Andrew Murray at Keswick

    Three of these talks were delivered on consecutive evenings at the Keswick Convention of 1895 in the Lake District, England. They are unique to Keswick and differ in content from other sermons published under the same titles while on tour in America.


    Andrew Murray at Exeter Hall

    After arriving back from his preaching tour of America in the autumn of 1895, the organizers of his tour requested that he speak on prayer at a small gathering of full-time workers and interested Christians at Exeter Hall. The talks he gave on that occasion were originally published under the title Eagle Wings in 1895. They are among the best of his talks.


    Two Testimonies

    Both testimonies were given at Keswick, and are the only ones that he gave that we know of. One was given in 1882, just after the miraculous healing of his throat, while the other was given at the Keswick Convention of 1895.
