Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

"No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine.  Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me."

Work for Him.  Rest in Him.

The Vine is the sole provider for the branch.  The branch needs only to obey.  The care and nutrients the branch receives from the Vine are more than enough to bear all the fruit it can handle.

This simple work is written in such a way as to make God's Word clear to anyone who would listen.  Andrew Murray was able to reach the young and underprivileged of his day with his straightforward preaching and writing.  And as he lived, fully abiding in the Lord, so these words of Christ are made clear for another century.

About the Author

ANDREW MURRAY (1828-1917) was a church leader, evangelist, and missionary statesman. As a young man, Murray wanted to be a minister, but it was a career choice rather than an act of faith. Not until he had finished his general studies and begun his theological training in the Netherlands, did he experience a conversion of heart. Sixty years of ministry in the Dutch Reformed Church of South Africa, more than 200 books and tracts on Christian spirituality and ministry, extensive social work, and the founding of educational institutions were some of the outward signs of the inward grace that Murray experienced by continually casting himself on Christ. A few of his books include The True Vine, Absolute Surrender, The School of Obedience, Waiting on God, and The Prayer Life.

Highly recommend to anyone seeking a deeper walk with Christ.

One cannot absorb the depth of this book in one reading as I am in my fifth consecutive reading and each time I see something new and revealing.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is the 3rd time through a men's study with Murray's work on John 15. The reality and power of abiding has become a reality in my life and the life of a dozen more who have accepted the challenge to surrender and pray and allow the Holy Spirit and our Lord Jesus to work from within to transform us into the men we were intended to be.
I encourage anyone seeking to truly understand what the Christian life can be to study this work with prayer and surrender. Today I abide in Jesus.

Format: Paperback
This updated classic of Andrew Murray gives the reader a 31 day devotional study of John 15:1-16. Through it the reader learns the keys of abiding in Christ. This tiny volume was packed with material that challenged me to live out these verses in my daily life.

The True Vine by Andrew Murray is a classic and I would say a must-read for any true believer and disciple of Christ. Murray outlines John 15 in a very detailed and explanatory manner that goes into the deepest parts of what it means to abide in Christ, to live as a 'vine on the branch'. This can be a tough read, especially for us who've been fed with a lot of milk (soft-teaching) at our church because this book demands a response - are we going to live our lives completely and totally devoted to Christ, or are we going to but cut off and thrown in the fire? Scary stuff, but when you read The True Vine and understand the beauty of surrendering to God, you can't help but want nothing less than to be completely and totally devoted to Him.

Murray is one of the best spiritual masters in the classic category. He is very practical all the while leading disciples into union with Christ. While some become overly mystical, Murray remains totally pastoral, scriptural, and understandable - while teaching how to remain "In Christ".

Every follower of Christ will benefit from the simple, profound teaching of Andrew Murray. The month of meditations on the True Vine is extremely helpful in understanding Christ's role as the vine and our role as the branch. Applying the teachings from this month can truly change your life.

The truths found in the short book can truly change lives. To see the eternal connection of the Vine to the branch and the two fold eternal purpose was both challenging and encouraging. If only more followers of Christ could grab hold of these truths. Highly recommend to anyone seeking a deeper walk with Christ.

I have been studying the writings of Andrew Murray for years and have found a wealth of knowledge and experience that has helped me tremendously in my growth and walk with God. One cannot absorb the depth of this book in one reading as I am in my fifth consecutive reading and each time I see something new and revealing. A new Christian would not be able to comprehend the depth of understanding in this book, however, a mature Christian would enjoy it immensely!

Thank you for making it available!
