More About Oswald Chambers
Oswald Chambers (1874-1917) was born July 24, 1874, in Aberdeen, Scotland. He came into a personal relationship with Jesus as his Savior in his teen years under the ministry of Charles Haddon Spurgeon, and studied art and archeology at the University of Edinburgh before answering a call from God to the Christian ministry. He then studied theology at Dunoon College. From 1906-1910 he conducted an itinerant Bible-teaching ministry in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Japan. In 1910, Chambers married Gertrude Hobbs. They had one daughter, Kathleen.
In 1911 he founded and became principal of the Bible Training College in Clapham, London, where he lectured until the school was closed in 1915 because of World War I. In October 1915 he sailed for Zeitoun, Egypt (near Cairo), where he ministered to troops from Australia and New Zealand as a YMCA chaplain. He died there November 15, 1917, following surgery for a ruptured appendix.
Although Oswald Chambers wrote only one book, "Baffled to Fight Better" (since updated and titled "Our Ultimate Refuge"), more than thirty titles bear his name. Mrs. Chambers, a court stenographer, compiled the rest of her husband's published works from her verbatim shorthand notes. For half a century following her husband's death she labored to give his words to the world. "My Utmost For His Highest," his best-known work, has been continuously in print in the United States since 1935 and remains in the top ten titles of the religious book bestseller list with millions of copies in print. It has become a Christian classic. "

Reviews - What do customers think about My Utmost For His Highest: Special Edition (OSWALD CHAMBERS LIBRARY)?
Teeny Tiny Print! Mar 2, 2010
The content of this book is amazing, but I clearly failed to read the reviews before ordering. Or I clicked on the wrong edition...? The print of this book is unbelievably small. I would guess the font size to be SIX - about like your average footnote. Definitely buy this book; but in a different edition.
A timeless book Feb 3, 2010
My Utmost for His Highest by Oswald Chambers, is a timless book. It was written many years ago,but its wisdom fits perfectly for today, and will fit in the future. I attend a men's bible study breakfast once a week, and every man there has this book. Some of the books are very old and tattered, but each man loves his own book like it was new.
bible centered Dec 25, 2009
This devotional is very direct, explaining spiritual issues in a biblical way. Guides and directs, but not with fluff.
THE classic devotional Nov 3, 2009
Along with the day's chapter from Proverbs (i.e. November 3rd, read Proverbs Chapter 3) each day I read the day's selection form Oswald Chambers MY UTMOST FOR HIS HIGHEST, and I have been doing so for around forty years now. His simple yet profound direction to keep one's eyes on God and His plans have shaped how my worldview and life. I have checked out other devotionals in the past, some are good, most are trite rubbish, but none better this classic, and I have found none that match it for continual life-changing use along with a devotional life of prayer, Bible study, praise and worship.
Tiny, Tiny Print Sep 23, 2009
I have read this book before and really enjoyed it and normally would give it a 5 star rating but have given it only 2 because it is almost unreadable due to the font size. Recently I bought 8 copies of this particular edition to share with my bible study group at a quite considerable cost. They have just come and I was greatly disappointed when I opened a copy and discovered that the print was miniscule. No one wants them because they can't read them easily. I will have to try and find some used books of a different edition to use with our study group. If you want this book I would highly recommend it but look for a different edition.
