More About Oswald Chambers & JAMES REIMANN
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. "

Excellent! May 17, 2009
Beautiful little edition. Just the right fit for what I had been looking for - a travel edition to read on the subway and around the city. It wears very well and is slim in profile.
A comfort and a challenge May 8, 2009
Recently, I became part of a prayer-guidance group at my church and the devotional book used is "My Utmost for His Highest." I had a classic version of the book at home but found the antiquated vocabulary difficult to relate to, much less apply in my life. This revised version is more comfortable to work with and, as a result, I read it every day.
Through this work, Oswald Chambers challenges me as a Christian to abandon myself to Jesus Christ and follow wherever He chooses to lead me. It reminds me that, rather than following the call of the world, I must surrender to a Higher calling. In the daily readings, I am both encouraged and challenged to the reality that the Christian life is not meant to be easy, but the rewards, both here on earth and in the hereafter, are wonderful beyond my comprehension. Following the path chosen for me as a modern-day disciple, I need Chamber's reminders of Jesus's teaching as well as the Bible's instuction. I believe there is no better source as a companion to the Bible than this daily devotional.
I encourage anyone interested in being a practicing Christian to try a group like the one I belong to. The guidance received is truly remarkable and a confirmation that God wants to be an intimate part of our daily lives. All we need to do is let Him. As a sidenote, if you are interested in fictional spiritual reading, give my book a try. Dreality: A story about returning home It's a reminder to all that life, mine and yours, is truly a spiritual adventure. Isn't it time to embrace it?

A devotional that stands the test of time Mar 26, 2009
Certain devotionals seem to stand the test of time better than others. My Utmost for His Highest is one of those. But be sure you get the updated lanuguage version. I bought a leather-bound on at the local store, delighted it was on sale. I should have looked inside first. Now I know WHY it was on sale. But this new version I got through this site is terrific. Another great devotional is Streams in the Desert.
Best Christian Source for Daily Devotionals Mar 23, 2009
Utmost for His Highest ranks extremely high among Christian study materials for working on your relationship with Christ. Mr Chambers is equal with C.S. Lewis in sharing his personal insights to help others fully embrace a closer walk with Jesus Christ. Five Stars !!
