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.
Kenneth Peterson5 Stars Out Of 5My Utmost For His HighestApril 10, 2015Kenneth PetersonQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I start out my day with prayer and scripture reading then proceed to Oswald Chambers' My Utmost For His Highest combined with Samuel Bagsters's Daily Devotions. I sincerely thank God that I have the time to start out my day this way. If you are unable to do this, then I recommend finding 5 minutes to delve into this classic devotional before bedtime. This is authentic Christianity not name it and claim it, nor a watered down, dumbed down presentation of Chrisitan truth configured as a daily devotional.

ElizabethKentuckyGender: female5 Stars Out Of 5July 27, 2013ElizabethKentuckyGender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5I was given the James Reimann edition of My Utmost for His Highest as a gift. It's formatted as a daily devotional and it has proven to be so relevant and priceless I have used it yearly ever since. The Reimann version makes it extremely readable (without insulting your intelligence)-yet never compromises the content. It has been a tremendous resource to me in my walk with the Lord. Oswald Chambers was truly a man completely devoted to God who spoke with such eloquence and insight as to be unequaled as a teacher. This devotional will challenge & encourage you.
