Meet the Author

Oswald Chambers (1874–1917) was born July 24, 1874, in Aberdeen, Scotland. Converted in his teen years under the ministry of Charles Haddon Spurgeon, he studied art and archaeology at the University of Edinburgh before answering a call from God to the Christian ministry. He then studied theology at Dunoon College, near Glasgow. From 1906–10 he conducted a Bible-teaching ministry in the United States, Japan, and the United Kingdom. In 1910 Chambers married Gertrude (Biddy) Hobbs. They had one daughter, Kathleen. In 1911 Chambers 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 British Commonwealth soldiers as a YMCA chaplain. He died there November 15, 1917, of complications following an emergency appendectomy. (The complete story of his life is told in the award-winning biography by David McCasland, Oswald Chambers: Abandoned to God.) Although Oswald Chambers wrote only one book, Baf?ed to Fight Better (now published as Our Ultimate Refuge), more than thirty titles bear his name. With this one exception, these published works were compiled by Mrs. Chambers, a court stenographer, from her verbatim shorthand notes of her husband’s messages taken during their seven years of marriage. For half a century following her husband’s death, Biddy Chambers labored to give his words to the world. My Utmost for His Highest, his best-known book, has become a Christian classic.

This book in its original text has been a particularly welcome challenge to me spiritually for some time, but this is in modernized language and as such it loses some of its punch. I hope it reappears as the original format it is advertised as. If I knew it was a revised version I would not have purchased it.

I experienced significant problems in navigating through this eBook using my Nook Color. It was almost unusable. I referred it to B&N's technical that confirmed the problem and stated they were going to refer it back to the publisher.

The words are wrapped and there are several pages that are missing. I bought it for the nook so take it with me. I have a hard copy at home that is great, but the one for the nook is awful. I wasted my money.

I always recommend this book to Christians trying to further their walk with God. I am not too happy about the Updated Language so I will wait and see if it comes out so I am waiting for the original language. Either way the truth is the truth. Enjoy it in which ever language you decide to read it.

Oswald Chambers wisdom comes through with daily readings designed to help the reader understand God's design for our lives. Written in a syle that "speaks" to the reader, I look forward to each day's words. It is too bad that our leaders today don't seem to read and heed these sage writings, as the world would be a much better place if they did.

The devotions are short but pack such a huge punch. I have been incredibly blessed by this book. His insights are fresh and relevant. I highly recommend this book to any real follower of Christ. If you are not serious about your faith, or don't believe in Christ, don't waste your money because you will not understand this book. If you desire to go deeper in your walk with God, this book is a must!
