Working for God! by Andrew Murray

Linda C. recently completed an audio recording of Murray's Working for God,and we've added it to our CCEL collection. CCEL describes the book with these words:

"In Working for God, Andrew Murray calls Christians to be instruments of God. Murray divides this call into thirty-one chapters which are ideal for daily devotions for any given month. With each of his meditations, Murray provides accompanying scriptural passages. Like much of Murray's work, Working for God is a book of depth, producing new and important insights every time one reads it. Its themes are clear--e.g. waiting on God, preparing oneself as an instrument of God--but are never overwhelming or repetitive. Overall, Working for God is another outsanding devotional from Andrew Murray." Murray's works continue to be popular among CCEL readers, and we hope you'll check this audio or online book out at
