The 10 Most Profound Andrew Murray Quotes

Recently, the Andrew Murray Collection went up on Community Pricing. Not only does it contain 11 monthly and 2 yearly devotionals—it also includes an additional 25 books packed with sermons, essays, addresses, and more. To celebrate this awesome collection, I’ve put together 10 of my favorite Andrew Murray quotes:

1. “A dead Christ I must do everything for; a living Christ does everything for me.”
2. “Christ is the humility of God embodied in human nature; the Eternal Love humbling itself, clothing itself in the garb of meekness and gentleness, to win and serve and save us.”
3. “Faith expects from God what is beyond all expectation.”
4. “Our love to God is measured by our everyday fellowship with others and the love it displays.”
5. “Men ought to seek with their whole hearts to be filled with the Spirit of God. Without being filled with the Spirit, it is utterly impossible that an individual Christian or a church can ever live or work as God desires.”
6. “God has no more precious gift to a church or an age than a man who lives as an embodiment of his will, and inspires those around him with the faith of what grace can do.”
7. “Prayer is not monologue, but dialogue. God’s voice in response to mine is its most essential part.”
8. “Let it be your business every day, in the secrecy of the inner chamber, to meet the holy God. You will be repaid for the trouble it may cost you. The reward will be sure and rich.”
9. “Pride must die in you, or nothing of heaven can live in you.”
10. “We must begin to believe that God, in the mystery of prayer, has entrusted us with a force that can move the Heavenly world, and can bring its power down to earth.”

It was hard to choose those 10—the Andrew Murray Collection is packed with over 7,000 pages of spiritual nuggets to ponder. Wake up and spend 10 minutes with one of Andrew Murray’s monthly devotionals side-by-side with your favorite Bible  in Logos, and you could change the way you approach your entire day—they’re that good.

And since it’s on Community Pricing, the more people that get in on the bidding action, the lower the price for this collection will go. So take one of these quotes and tweet it (with a link). Or share one of Murray’s insights on your Facebook page. Add it to your Pinterest board or your blog or your church website—get the word out that Logos Bible Software has Andrew Murray’s works, and the price is right (and going to get even better).

Thinking Green: Environmental Stewardship and the Psalms

Is it possible to be “Green” and be Christian? How should we interpret and put into practice Genesis 1:26? God created our planet, what is our responsiblity in maintaining it? Are there places in the Bible that speak about environmental stewardship? These are questions many Christians are asking themselves. And Arthur Walker-Jones, Associate Professor of Theology at the University of Winnipeg, believes the answers can be found in one of the most popular books of the Old Testament: the Psalms.

The Green Psalter: Resources for an Ecological Spirituality mines the Psalms with these very questions in mind. Walker-Jones explores the “Green” phenomenon in popular culture and current events—such as the movie An Inconvenient Truth and Hurricane Katrina—through a biblical lens, and discusses what role Christians might play in this global movement.  Walker-Jones makes his points with engaging prose and fresh and original insight on the Psalms. As one reviewer suggests, “he makes a convincing case the psalter is ‘greener’ than one might think” (Carol A. Newsom, Charles Howard Candler Professor of Old Testament, Emory University).

The Green Psalter is just one volume out of the eleven included in the Fortress Press Hebrew Bible Collection. Bringing together some of the top scholars on the Hebrew Bible, such as Walter Brueggemann and Marvin A. Sweeney, this collection will provide a solid foundation for study of the Hebrew Bible. And right now, you can pick it up for only $199.95 in Pre-Pub, a savings of almost 40%.

Don’t Miss William Mitchell Ramsay on Community Pricing!

Plug the name “W. M. Ramsay” into your Logos search bar, and watch how many hits come up in your library. At the turn of the 20th century, this archeologist travelled to the holy lands to disprove the history of the Bible—and guess what? The overwhelming evidence he found in favor of the Bible led to Ramsay’s conversion.

Ramsay spent over a dozen years living in, and writing about, the Bible lands. Now, over 100 years later, as you can see in your Logos search results, his research on Near Eastern culture and the Bible is still proving to be invaluable for scholars today.

Ramsay’s fascinating exploration into the history and places described in the Acts of the Apostles deepens our understanding of early Christianity. Ramsay’s work brings to life the cities that Paul travelled through, such as Galatia, Tarsus, and Iconium. It gives context and history for the places that Luke wrote about. You’ll gain a new perspective on the cities and churches referenced in John’s Revelation.

Having all sixteen volumes of the William Mitchell Ramsay Collection linked to your library and your Bible sounds pretty cool, right? What makes this collection even more exciting is that it is in Community Pricing, and getting close to crossing the 100% mark. Right now, the most you’ll pay is about $1.88 a book. The more people that bid on this collection, there’s good chance it’s going to get even cheaper. So make sure to place your bid today and take advantage of this amazing deal.
