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

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

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. In the second half of the book, the focus changes to absolute surrend ...more

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.

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.

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.

“Let us, at the very commencement of our meditations, admit that there is nothing so natural to man, nothing so insidious and hidden from our sight, nothing so difficult and dangerous, as pride. Let us feel that [as if] nothing but a very determined and persevering waiting on God and Christ will discover [show] how lacking we are in the grace of humility, and how impotent to obtain what we seek. Let us study the character of Christ until our souls are filled with the love and admiration of his lowliness. And let us believe that, when we are broken down under a sense of our pride, and our impotence to cast it out, Jesus Christ himself will come in to impart this grace too, as a part of his wondrous life within us.” 0 likes
