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: Updated Edition?
A Little Disappointed Mar 8, 2007
I was a little disappointed with this purchase. It advertised a chance to see the book before the purchase, but that was misleading. The link led to the original version which is what I intended to buy, but instead the book I received features updated text. I was a little disappointed with that.
If you REALLY want to walk with Him.... Feb 5, 2007
I have read many devotionals since my REAL walk with Christ and none have held a candle to this devotional. If you want an up close, personal and meaningful relationship with Christ this book will explain how to have one and as one review stated "No nonsense relationship". Those that are truly striving for that relationship will understand this devotional and those who just can't get it I refer you to Mathew 13:19. I urge you to get the understanding because I don't want any of my fellow brothers and sisters in Christ or even not with Christ to fall by the wayside. This book will help your relationship soar to higher heights because it teaches you really how to be one and like Christ. It is never ending since it is for the entire year & My Utmost for His Highest will be life changing.
Today's Excerpt: February 5 ARE YOU READY TO BE POURED OUT AS AN OFFERING? "If I am being poured out as a drink offering on the sacrifice and service of your faith, I am glad and rejoice with you all" (Philippians 2:17) Are you willing to sacrifice yourself for the work of another believer-to pour out your life sacrificially for the ministry and faith of others? Or do you say, "I am not willing to be poured out right now, and I don't want God to tell me how to serve Him. I want to choose the place of my own sacrifice. And I want to have certain people watching me and saying, `Well done.'" It is one thing to follow God's way of service if you are regarded as a hero, but quite another thing if the road marked out for you by God requires becoming a "doormat" under other people's feet. God's purpose may be to teach you to say, "I know how to be abased..." (Philippians 4:12). Are you ready to be sacrificed like that? Are you ready to be less than mere drop in the bucket-to be so totally insignificant that no one remembers you even if they think of those you served? Are you willing to give and be poured out until you are used up and exhausted-not seeking to be ministered but to minister? Some saints cannot do menial work while maintaining a saintly attitude, because they feel such service is beneath their dignity
I hope this excerpt have blessed you as it blessed me and if you don't understand it feel free to email me so the enemy won't snatch it away from you. Love you and God bless
Not my highest Review Jan 27, 2007
This book has been recommended many times and also referenced in many things I have read before. But truthfully, I purchased it 6 months ago and I just cannot get into it. It's hard to put it into words but it just drags for me and I have not been able to read it. If and when I ever do, I'll be sure to get back to you!
My Utmost For His Highest Jan 12, 2007
An absolute must have for any Christian who wishes to better understand salvation through Jesus. A challenge to your thinking. One will have an awakening if read in earnest.
This is no joke. Jan 10, 2007
If you like a no-nonsense approach to your personal relationship with God, then this book is for you. Mr Chambers does not pull any punches in delivering his daily message. I highly recommend this book to anyone. Whether your a new believer or an old soldier, there is a daily message for all.
