The Cross of Christ
Andrew Murray relates in this work the importance of the cross to Christian belief, and to the lessons which Jesus Christ wanted to teach all of mankind. Although demonstratively brief, Murray's explanations contain a conviction and poignancy, explaining the centrality and vitality of the crucifix to the Christian faith. The crucifixion's importance in Christ's message and destiny, and the reasons behind why his spirit was led to a painful end upon the cross, are keenly discussed by Murray. He delivers explanations of the cross as a symbol of Christian attainment, wherein God takes possession of the human soul and frees it from sin for eternity. Andrew Murray authored 200] works on the religion and ministry of Christianity, the Bible, and on topics inspiring Christians to lead virtuous and happy lives. Murray spent most of his life imparting the word of God in churches throughout South Africa, and in the 1880s became an important figure in the founding of the South African General Mission.
