The True Vine

The True Vine
by Andrew Murray
Product Details
Paperback: 127 pages
Publisher: Moody Press

Point: John 15:1-16 teaches that the believer is to find his life and strength in the True Vine, Jesus Christ.
Path:  Murray writes 31 short chapters featuring a key devotional thought and prayer surrounding the teaching of Jesus in John 15. The believer can do nothing on his own but must abide in the true vine.
Sources: it is a devotional commentary
Agreement: We must abide in Christ. Our life and strength can only be found in him. 
Disagreement: He never really explains what it means to abide other than to not try, but rest. It is a Keswick view of sanctification - Let Go and Let God.
Stars: 2 out of 5
It was confusing to me and I would fear that it would confuse anyone I encouraged to read it.

Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. (Philippians 3:8)
