Review: The Power of the Blood of Christ by Andrew Murray

Synopsis: In this classic exploration of the Scriptures, Andrew Murray leads the reader to a complete understanding of the significance and reality of the power of the shed blood of Christ. Astounding results can take place in your life once you have learned about the power of the blood of Jesus and how to use it in coping with life's difficult situations. This mighty weapon of spiritual warfare holds the secret to a victorious life. (from the back of the book)

Review: Andrew Murray is one of my go-to authors for sound, Bible-based, Spirit-lead, hard-hitting instruction, admonition, and exposition. So it is with a disappointed mind that I give this book such a low rating. To be clear, there is nothing theological questionable in this book. Far from it. His explanation on the power of the Blood of Christ is solid and true. It is the prose that I found difficult. Circular and repetitive, his prose, will true, seem to spend most of the time saying the same idea over and over, just using slightly different words.  He doesn’t use large word or complex vocabulary, preferring simple words and sentences, so the ideas he puts forth as accessible to anyone of average understanding. But his passion for his topic overshadows his literary abilities and his ideas often get lost in a tangle of repetitive jargon.
Andrew Murray is always worth the time to read, but be mindful that this particular work may take more patience.
