this tragically waas renamed by the christian booksellers. it should just be "two covenants." they feel like if it doesn't say "your blessings" you won't want to read it. i dont like marketing in the christian world but thats another subject.

andrew murray was an "expert" on hebrews. this book talks about the old covenant which was in principle based on man's ability to DO in order to obtain from God. man of course broke this covenant and god used that covenant to show us what we are. this is the

This book was read online, downloaded and a print-out taken. The Christian bookstores do not have this book on their shelves. They tell me that Christians these days are not interested in the deeper spiritual stuff. They want something charismatic, with lots of blessings. It's all about 'self-gratification' - what do I get out of this?

This book must be read at least thrice. It is profound; essential reading for everyone who is born again and indwelt by the Holy Spirit. It is because many pastors

My favorite Andrew Murray book always seems to be the one I'm reading at the moment. I'm re-reading this one to align with a summer study of the book of Hebrews. What a refreshing review of the power of the New Covenant in contrast with the old. One of my favorite lines from Chap. 18: Whatever we read about the new heart and God's devoted investment to it in the New Covenant must be boldly believed and put into action.
The intent is not to simply increase our knowledge, but to grow in our ongoing

His passion and commitment to Christ and His word come through throughout the book. A good effort at comparing Old and New Covenants - the Old showing man’s deficiencies, the New showing God’s grace (not exclusively). Surrender is key.

Andrew Murray was the writer of many devotional classics. In this book he compares the Old and New Covenants and expertly explains why the first one (in its seeming inadequacy) was necessary before the advent of the second.

Murray writes that if Christians had a true understanding of the nature of their covenant-making and covenant-keeping God, they would have the faith to move mountains. His Two Covenants is one of the most inspirational books I’ve read in years. Highly recommended!

“One of the great reasons that so many Christians never come out of the Old Covenant, never even know that they are in it, and have to come out of it, is that there is so much head knowledge, without the power of the Spirit in the heart being waited for.” 0 likes
