Summary

South African pastor Andrew Murray and his elder brother, John, studied theology at the University of Utrecht. Both were members of the Het Réveil, a religious revival movement that arose in opposition to theistic rationalism. Murray believed that missionary work was “the chief end of the church”. Important to this end is the concept of humility, which he discusses in this work. In his preface he writes “In these meditations I have, for more than one reason, almost exclusively directed attention to the humility that becomes us as creatures. It is not only that the connection between humility and sin is so abundantly set forth in all our religious teaching, but because I believe that for the fullness of the Christian life it is indispensable that prominence be given to the other aspect. If Jesus is indeed to be our example in His lowliness, we need to understand the principles in which it was rooted, and in which we find the common ground on which we stand with Him, and in which our likeness to Him is to be attained.” In this short work, Andrew Murray offers a thorough exposition on Christian humility which will aid the devout Christian in pursuing this trait in his or her own life.
