Both simple and profound, this book was written out of the author's desire to help young Christians apprehend the all-sufficiency and faithfulness of the Lord Jesus and the fruitfulness of a life of faith in Him. The title, The True Vine: Meditations for a Month on John 15:1-16, clearly reveals the focus. Andrew Murray's classic writing covers in frank and loving detail the experiences of Christ portrayed by the parable of the husbandman, the vine, and the branches. Having this work in eBook form enables readers to use a mobile phone or PDA to open up their electronic Bible concurrently and to make full use of the Scripture and commentary indexes at the end of the book. Here is a book which, when read with a prayerful spirit, is well worth a month of contemplation.
Andrew Murray (1828-1917). One of four children born to Andrew, Sr. and Maria Murray, Andrew Murray was raised in what was considered then the most remote corner of the world - Graaff-Reinet (near the Cape), South Africa. It was here, South Africa, after his formal education in Scotland and three years of theological study in college in Holland, that Andrew Murray returned as a missionary and minister. He was the prolific author of over 240 books, and faithfully preached and ministered Christ in South Africa.
"I have learnt to place myself before God every day, as a vessel to be filled with His Holy Spirit. He has filled me with the blessed assurance that He, as the everlasting God, has guaranteed His work in me. If there is one lesson that I am learning day by day, it is this; that it is God who worketh all in all. Oh, that I could help any brother or sister to realize this!"
