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. "
Oswald Chambers was born in 1874 and died in 1918.

Most Beautiful Edition of a Wonderful Devotional Nov 10, 2008
I have been an Oswald Chambers follower for many years. I had been reading a tattered copy that belonged to my dad. For my birthday today I got this copy for my birthday and it is so very special. The leather cover is so soft and beautiful. Two shades of purple and liliac. Soft and comfortable to hold.
The dovotions are still current today. They make you look deep within your heart to what God is saying to you.
Profound Devotional Nov 3, 2008
This book has been a profound daily devotional for me for 15 + years. I have read it every year. The insights this man of God had are some of the most relevant, authentic, and remarkable devotions I have ever read. I continue to be amazed.

Rubber Meets the Road Christianity Sep 6, 2008
If I had to make a choice of only one book that I could have in addition to my Bible "My Utmost for His Highest" would be it. Next to the Bible, this book has had the greatest impact on my understanging of what is means to walk with Jesus.
Maybe a bit ascetic Aug 10, 2008
Thanks for the thoughtful views. I came to this site hoping to find someone who was also challenged by the extreme views that I perceive Oswald to have on a few topics. I'm not experienced or life-qualified enough to state if he's right or wrong...only that I found him to be overly ascetic sometimes. And context is such an important issue -- for example, when Jesus was speaking of his coming to 'set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother' -- I think this was hyperbole -- why would he design human beings to live and love inside of a family setting only to ask them to rebuke that family? Anyway, thank you for the discussion.
