Holy in Christ: Thoughts on the Calling of God’s Children to Be Holy as He Is Holy


Anson D. F. Randolph & Company 1887

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


To many, “holiness” has simply been a general expression for the Christian life in its more earnest form, without much thought for what the term really means. In Holy in Christ, Andrew Murray examines in what sense God uses the word so that it may mean to us what it means to Him. He traces the word through the most important passages of Scripture to learn what God’s holiness is, what ours is to be, and how we may attain it.

In the Logos edition, all Scripture passages are tagged and appear on mouse-over. For scholarly work or personal Bible study, this makes these texts more powerful and easier to access than ever before. With the advanced search features of Logos Bible Software, you can perform powerful searches by topic or Scripture reference—finding, for example, every mention of “holiness” or “John 15:1–2.”

Praise for the Print Edition

This is one of the best books we have seen upon a subject which is happily attracting much attention nowadays. There is so much spurious sentimentalism abroad that we are glad to meet with a book in which this sacred theme—holiness—is dealt with so robustly and scripturally.

About Andrew Murray

Andrew Murray (1828–1917) was born in Graaff Reinet, South Africa, to Dutch missionary parents. Educated at King’s College, Aberdeen, he then studied theology at the University of Utrecht. Andrew and his older brother John were ordained in the Dutch Reformed Church in 1848. Murray pastored South African churches in Bloemfontein, Worcester, Cape Town, and Wellington. A champion of missionary work, he founded the South African General Mission in 1889. That ministry continued to grow, and today it is part of the SIM (Serving in Mission) organization.

A prolific author and lecturer, Murray authored over 200 books during his lifetime, and he was invited to speak at churches and conferences all over the world. Married for over 60 years and the father of eight children, Murray passed away in January 1917.
