From the Back Cover

Christ's blood can protect and empower you!

Andrew Murray, through his truly inspirational walk with God, has lifted the veil on much of the mystery of Christ's blood and its precious source of life.

He shares the tremendous power that Christ's blood has for each of us if we accept it as our rightful inheritance and rely upon it to protect and enable us to accomplish our purposes in God. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

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 deep relationship with Christ. Writing with an intensity of purpose and zeal for the message of the gospel, Murray wrote numerous books even after his "retirement" at age seventy–eight. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback
I read this book during a time of great personal crisis. THe Lord used this book to show me how intimacy comes through the cross. The greater the revelation I have of the cross of Christ and the deeper I yield to the power of the blood preapres me to receive a greater impartation of the Holy Spirit. This is not a work of strong will power, but an identification with Christ in the place of the cross. Read this for strength and encouragement in the incredible grace that God releases to us on the basis of Christ's blood in the cross.

Format: Paperback
In a day when the blood of Jesus is being removed from the very translation of the Bible itself, when the mention of the blood of Jesus is considered offensive even in the churches, this book and Murray's other, "The Power of the Blood of Jesus," are God-sends for those who are willing to accept the ways of God without cringing. Though the blood of Jesus is not in any way magical, it is nonetheless crucial and foundational to receiving ANY benefit whatsoever from God. If one could list all the spiritual blessings in the heavenlies in Christ Jesus (Eph. 1:3), and then search out the sole reason why these benefits are available to born-again Christians, and only to born-again Christians, they would find that every single one without exception is only available because of the shed blood of Christ. Murray clearly shows this truth in his books and mentions over a hundred benefits (between the 2 books) that are only available by Jesus Christ's shed blood. If you want to get back to true biblical Christianity, you must get back to the centrality of the precious blood of Jesus. Otherwise, you have no source of heavenly, spiritual, benefits from God, inlcuding salvation itself. Hebrews says, "Without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sin." Murray shows clearly that within that statement is included ALL the resulting benefits of forgiveness, as well.

Format: Paperback
Finally, after letting this book sit on the shelf for eight years, I decided to read it. And I'm exceedingly glad I did.

Jesus' blood, what a subject! Yet, how small a stirring the thought of His blood brings to our hearts. When I realised that my interest in far less weighty subjects was much greater than the blood, I was convinced I should read this book.

In ten chapters Murray shows us different aspects of the blood. Nonetheless, a theme which must have been very close to Murray's heart seemed to arise repeatedly: the blood works in us by the Spirit, to give us the same inner nature of Jesus, of which the cross was only the outward expression. "What became visible on Golgotha was a manifestation of the character which inspired his whole life."

Practically, this is shown in our increasing victory over sin, taking up our cross and living a selfless life in obedience to Christ. This, as well as knowing our Lord in the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings, is some of the virtues the blood works in us.

Finally, I urge you to not only read this book, but to meditate on it's contents that you may develop a true understanding of the blood. Then, I hope you will experience what Murray describes: "If I regard the blood, not as something inactive and must be aroused to activity by my faith, but as an almighty, eternal power which is always active, then my faith becomes, for the first time, a true faith."

OUTSTANDING!! A lot has been written on this topic, but Murray's book gives such a profound revelation of what we all need to understand about the precious blood of Christ. It turns it from theology to an absolutely life-changing truth.

The blood of Christ is the price paid for freedom from sin and the guilt associated with it. This is too often glossed over and replaced with a 'get into heaven' message that leaves out much of what true Christianity offers, and calls us to, here and now. This book helps bring out the deeper meaning of the work of the the blood and why it accomplished all that it did.
