 Andrew Murray Destined to Win:

A Biographical Novel


A true story of battles, blessings, betrayal, and breakthrough

Andrew Murray and Emma at Herschel

Twenty-two year old Andrew Murray has just completed his first year of ministry to over 20 000 Boers beyond the borders of the Cape. With new-found confidence, he soon finds himself acting in a statesman-like capacity on behalf of both Boer and Brit. But with every victory gained, he finds himself not only showered with accolades, but also having to battle outbreaks of self and pride that he is unable to conquer.

After a heartbreaking betrayal, he realizes that he is in need of a wife—someone who is able to partner with him in the ministry. But where to find such a girl? And when found, will his bloated ego and self-focus get in the way of winning her hand?
