If you want a moment by moment walk with Christ and are ready to ask the Holy Spirit to minister to you - read this book. This wisdom is so loving and encouraging - an old classic but totally timeless!! This book is in my top five !!
I am blessed by the classical writings of Christians, godly saints of decades, or even centuries gone by. Andrew Murray is certainly among these. I love his books, and Absolute Surrender is one of his absolute best because in this thin book, you have a powerhouse of scriptural knowledge that, if applied, will change your spiritual life dramatically. After reading this book, I came up with an acronym to summarize its content: A.V.R.A.S. - Absolute Victory (in life) Requires Absolute Surrender (to Christ).
This is an excellent book, one of those "must-reads." It is the key to that abundant life that God has promised to those who truly desire to know and serve their God. We must surrender everything to Him (holding nothing back) - our spouses, our children, our finances, our jobs, etc. etc. - and why wouldn't we want to surrender to the One who created us, loves us intensely and has the best plan for our lives, and He wants to bless us with things we cannot even imagine! Contrary to popular opinion, we cannot do a better job at living this life than He can through us. The peace, contentment, joy is unbelievable! Try it - you'll love it!
My e,Corrie Ten Boom, loved Andrew Murray's writings, so I started reading them. I began with "Absolute Surrender" and loved it! This book makes it easier to understand what total surrender to Jesus is; and how to get there. His writings draw you MUCH closer to God.
An absolutely great book. If applied it will definitely transform your walk with the Lord. Murray was a very gifted writer, in the way he was able to communicate the application & truths of God's Word. God bless,
