5.0 out of 5 stars Some things endure.., Feb. 23 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: My Utmost For His Highest - Deluxe (Hardcover)
As Thomas Merton put it, there is nothing really new under the sun. "There is nothing so ancient and so dead as human novelty. The 'latest' is always stillborn. What is really NEW is what was there all the time. I say, not what has repeated itself all the time; the really "new" is that which, at every moment, springs freshly into new existence."

I have used this devotional since my mid twenties.. thirty years or so. I haven't used it rigidly every day, but I'm sure I have been through it eight or ten times. And I can safely say that the Lord has spoken to me freshly hundreds of times. It has this enduring quality, and this poly-valence.

But it is neither easy nor simple reading. The language is often archaic. Even the updated version retains a 19th century British flavor. But for those who love language, this is not a barrier but rather a recommendation.

Finally, remember that Chambers is now public domain and his devotional is available online.
