This slender but profound book of daily devotionals for the Christian seeking closer communion with God is more than a century old, but it continues to inspire and stir the faithful today. Written by an influential 19th-century preacher and missionary, here are 31 mediations on the Almighty, one for each day of the month. Discover: . the God of our salvation . the keynote of life . the true place of the creature . a plea in prayer . the way to a new song . who waits on us . the coming of his Son . the promise of the Father . and much more. A South African of Scottish ancestry, Dutch Reformed Church minister ANDREW MURRAY (1828-1917) was a prolific writer, publishing more than 200 books and pamphlets, including The School of Obedience, Absolute Surrender, and The Deeper Christian Life.
