Vibrant devotional reading from two classic writers
Both Andrew Murray and Charles Finney wrote and spoke dynamically on the work of the Holy Spirit in the Christian's life. Editor L. G. Parkhurst has taken Murray's classic, The Secret of Power from on High, and combined it with insights from Finney's book, Power from on High, updating them for today's reader.
Murray's primary concern was that the believer bear the fruits of the Holy Spirit in his daily life; Finney's burden was for the believer to experience the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Both writers subscribe to the same conditions for receiving the power from on high. The two combine to form a powerful message to Christians.
The thirty-one devotionals begin with a reading on a particular issue by Murray, then Finney's commentary on that issue and a concluding prayer.
A unique devotional handbook that deserves a wide audience in this newly edited format.
About the Author
Charles G. Finney was one of America's foremost evangelists. Over half a million people were converted under his ministry.
Charles G. Finney (1792-1875) is recognized as the most effective evangelist of the 19th century. It is estimated that more than half a million people were converted to Christ through his evangelistic ministry. After becoming a lawyer he carefully explored the claims of Christ and was powerfully converted in 1821. An avid student of the Bible, he soon engaged in preaching and teaching throughout many eastern and southern states. The result was a revival which altered the course of American history.
Andrew Murray (1828-1917) was born in South Africa. After receiving his education in Scotland and Holland, he returned to South Africa and spent his life there as a pastor, missionary, and author of many devotional books. He and his wife, Emma, raised eight children.
