Book Review

Oswald Chambers

1874 -1917

"Oswald Chambers was a man unbridled by the world and its desires.  Some say he was one of the greatest Christian thinkers of our time.

He was born on July 24, 1874 in Aberdeen Scotland, where he became a Christian during his teen years under the ministry of Charles Spurgeon."

"With the exception of the Bible, no book has had as profound an effect on my life as My Utmost for His Highest.  My wife introduced it to me before we were married, and it has been a part of my daily diet from the first reading."

My Utmost for His Highest

Copies are generally found in every Christian bookstore, and are even available in most secular bookstores.  

 Much of the material in "Utmost" was written while Chambers was serving as a Chaplain with Allied troops in Egypt (where he died very suddenly at the age of 42 of a ruptured appendix).  He knew what it was like to talk to men who were in the front line.  His aim was always to point them to Jesus Christ.

My Utmost for His Highest was first published in 1923, and has remained continually in print ever since.  Thousands of people have been blessed and challenged as they have regularly read this daily devotional.

The royalty income from this classic book is used for Christian works that include a school in Rwanda, distribution of books to African countries, gifts of books to pastors in Asia, support for a children’s home in Thailand, and many more. ________________________________________

Our Comments:

We have generally not cared for, nor had any interest in "devotionals" and were actually unaware that we had been using one for decades!  This is The Imitation of Christ by Thomas á Kempis.  We had never thought of it as being a "devotional"!  It is proclaimed to be  ________________________________________

Now we have discovered Oswald Chambers' My Utmost for his Highest, and we see that we have indeed been "missing out" on something very wonderful.  These are short commentaries (each only one page long, to be read one per day) that are filled with a deep knowledge of God and insight into His Word.  

We know Christians who have been reading this work over and over again daily for years.  Read even one page of this classic work the next time you are in a bookstore, and you will see why.
