Oswald Chambers’ most well-known title, the devotional My Utmost for His Highest, has established him as one of the most influential teachers of our time.
But did you know he wrote books on the Bible as well? Now you can take advantage of this teacher’s profound insight on Matthew 5-7 and what it means to focus on God and God alone.
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.
The Oswald Chambers material is published and licensed exclusively by Discovery House Publishers through arrangement with the Oswald Chambers Publications Association, Ltd.
Jim5 Stars Out Of 5Great overviewJanuary 23, 2015JimQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Warm, encouraging and challenging overview of this important passage. Just what I would expect from Oswald Chambers! This is not a verse by verse exposition; it is great preparation for reading and understanding what Jesus was communicating.

Ian McDonald4 Stars Out Of 5April 8, 2010Ian McDonaldI find this book a very interesting read. I have 2 other books by Oswald Chambers and enjoy his insights. For me Oswald Chambers speaks what God wants me to hear. As always Oswald Chambers points out how Christ points to being focused on God.
