“Abiding”: A Biblical Critique of Andrew Murray’s Theology and Writings on Prayer
MetadataShow full item record
This DEdMin thesis demonstrates that while Andrew Murray seeks to teach believers to pray for the most important of reasons—to bring God glory—the Second Blessing theology, which informs his writings, gives cause for concern. Chapter 1 introduces Murray’s teaching, surveys relevant literature, identifies the literature void, and presents the manuscript thesis. Chapter 2 reviews the various personal, historical, and theological sources which influence Murray’s thought. Chapter 3 shifts to an examination of Murray’s writings that address his theologies pertaining to prayer. Chapter 4 discusses Murray’s writings on his practice of prayer. Chapter 5 acknowledges Murray’s contributions in teaching prayer as a means to glorify God while summarizing how his Second-Blessing-infused theology and writings warrant the caution of the church.
