When Jesus “made himself nothing…taking the nature of a servant,” He modelled for all believers true humility. Andrew Murray calls this “our true nobility” and “the distinguishing feature of discipleship.” With insightful, penetrating clarity, Murray calls all Christians to turn from pride, empty themselves, and study the character of Christ to be filled with His grace. Often called the best work on humility ever written, this edition has been edited for today’s reader.

About the Author
South African pastor and author Andrew Murray (1828 1917) was an amazingly prolific writer. Murray began writing on the Christian life for his congregation as an extension of his local pastoral work, but he became internationally known for his books, such as With Christ in the School of Prayer and Abide in Christ, that searched men’s hearts and brought them into a deeper relationship with Christ. With intense purpose and zeal for the message of the gospel, Murray wrote numerous books even after his “retirement” at age seventy-eight.
I will put my trust in Him … Behold I and the children which God has given me – Hebrews 2:13
This book is different from most books on raising children. It is a plea for the parents to truly know and walk with God – for them to love God and His Word. In the correct order, focusing first on the parents, Andrew Murray then urges parents to sincerely and consistently love their children and in all tenderness and gentleness teach them as God also teaches us.
Children are a most precious gift that we receive from God, and they deserve our very best. Our faithful training will not be lost on our children; this is a promise found over and over again in the Scriptures. If our hearts are right towards God and our children, the world’s influence will not impact our children. We can and must exercise faith, so our children and our children’s children will be able to impact the world for Christ and inherit eternal blessings.
A few of the parenting topics covered in this book:
- What sin did to the family and how to redeem that which was lost.
- The distinct and also shared roles of fathers and mothers.
- How and why to teach children manners.
- How to show children the Scriptures in a way that takes root in the heart.
- How to teach with a quiet, gentle spirit, as God teaches us.
- How to intercede effectively in prayer for our children.
About the Author
Andrew Murray (1828-1917) was a well-known South African writer, teacher, and pastor. More than 2 million copies of his books have been sold, and his name is mentioned among the other great leaders of the past such as Charles Spurgeon, T. Austin-Sparks, George Muller, D.L. Moody, and more.
Writing to encourage believers, Murray desired that all Christians discover the abundant life in Christ available to those who pray fervently. Identifying prayerlessness as a serious sin of omission, he instructs sincere believers in how to be delivered from this sin and make prayer a priority, resulting in the blessing of renewed fellowship with Christ. Originally titled The Prayer Life, this devotional classic includes examples from the lives of the apostle Paul, George Müller, Hudson Taylor, and more.
