Meet the Author


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

    A must for all who desire better communication with God.

    Definitely a hard-to-put-down book, Prayer: A Holy Occupation by Oswald Chambers is a great addition to anyone's personal library. Many of my own questions about prayer were answered in each chapter, and my relationship with God has really enhanced! You will not be dissappointed- with such topics as Intimacy, God's silence, Discipline, Childlikeness and more, you will want to read this book over and over again. :oD

    Outstanding Book!

    I am thoroughly enjoying reading this book. It is a challenging and refreshing perspective on prayer. Oswald Chambers does an incredible job of writing about challenging concepts in simple terms that can be understood easily. I highly recommend this book for any Christian who is seeking to jump start their prayer life and understand God's role for our lives.
