Product Description

From Amazon

Oswald Chambers, a Scotsman who converted to Christianity in his teens under the ministry of Charles Spurgeon, has been affecting Christians with his devotional words since My Utmost for His Highest was first published in 1935. This acknowledged classic contains 365 daily readings that take heady doctrine and make it practical, realistic, and intensely personal. With humor and humility, Chambers speaks plainly to the common man struggling with devotion to Christ in daily living. Worldly cares and self-serving desires begin to lose their appeal as Chambers aides the reader in transforming his mind by viewing life through the instruction of God's Word. Richard Halverson, former chaplain of the United States Senate, attests to this: "no book except the Bible has influenced my walk with Christ at such deep maturing levels." This is Chambers's chief desire, directing the reader to "shut out every other consideration and keep yourself before God for this one thing only--My Utmost for His Highest... determined to be absolutely and entirely for Him and for Him alone." --Jill Heatherly --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

"With the exception of the Bible, no book has had as profound an effect on my life as "My Utmost for His Highest.".. This volume is not a treasure to be admired but a message to be lived...I am greatly encouraged to see these powerful daily devotions updated with more contemporary expressions...It is my earnest prayer that this volume will be received with delight and shared freely." - From the Foreword by Charles F. Stanley

"This contemporary version of Chambers' classic is a delight to read and a joy to ponder. I rejoice that a new generation of serious Christians now has access to the treasures Oswald Chambers bequeathed to us." - Warren W. Wiersbe

""My Utmost for His Highest "is a devotional of fresh and vital insights, even after 75 years. Three cheers for this edition!" - Joni Eareckson Tada

"Praise God! A new generation is on the brink of receiving a bright new edition of this classic!" - Jack W. Hayford

""My Utmost for His Highest "is one of a kind. It has been a source of challenge and blessing in my own life for years...I don't think anyone can read it consistently with out being a better servant of Christ." - Ruth Bell Graham --This text refers to the Leather Bound edition.

I have never been a fan of "daily devotionals" but I needed a kick in the butt in my life. I have been slacking in my Mass attendance and had trouble finding 'Christ in me'. No matter how hard I tried and prayed, I found God to be someone up there, not someone in my life.
I was the type to look up canon law when I had a question and obey the commandments because I am supposed to. I wanted to know God was in my life but could never grasp it. This book was able to do this for me.
My life has changed in one week. I now enjoy attending daily Mass, looking forward to it, and receiving knowledge and guidance from it. I am learning to know God and actually mark my calendar to find time to quietly read and meditate on the daily reading in My Utmost for His Highest.
I only wish I had known of this book earlier. I have never found a book that has changed my life as much as this one has.

It is no surprise that this book has garnered such gleeful adulation by Christians for the past hundred years. reading through only a couple days of devotionals will reveal a vast treasure of scriptural application and wisdom that reminds the reader of Solomon's book of proverbs. Even though this book was written in a time and culture vastly different from today's, the wisdom of God persists in the gentle advice to discipleship that Jesus has been prompting us to and Oswald Chambers echos. Buy this book if you desire daily encouragement through God's word. I can testify that you won't regret it.

The essays are published from lectures given 1911-1917 so it is written in old English. This makes it difficult to understand sometimes. I will reread a passage three times before I can fully understand it but when I do understand it, it is mind-blowing. Daily having your mind-blown and your beliefs challenged is very exciting!

Man, talk about a wake-up call. Oswald Chambers pulls no punches as he leads you day-by-day through an entire year of Bible-based teaching (with even an extra day thrown in for a leap year), mostly excerpted from his lectures given at the Bible Training College from 1911-1917.

I've never been so blasted with good, solid, Christ-centered teaching in my entire life. Chambers's point throughout is simple: it's Jesus or bust, folks. Get with the program or not only will you miss out big time in this life, but also in the life to come.

His style is direct, his words laced with power. Why? Because he's preaching the Word, solid and true. Not ever have I been so challenged by a daily devotional as by this one. Most out there are just fluffy thoughts for the day. Sure, some are Christian in nature or even Bible-based, but most just don't get to the meat of it. My Utmost for His Highest does. This is one of those books that are meant for those who want more, for those who take, or want to take, their Christian walk seriously.

This book amplifies what it means to be a Christian. A real Christian, first century-style. The kind of Christian God wants.

If you're looking for a book to change your life, one that will amplify what the Bible says, then grab a copy of this ASAP. If you're looking to just sit in the drudgery of the same old, same old, then don't bother.

But then you'll be missing out. Big time.

Highly recommended reading.

I'm embarrassed to say I didn't know anything about Oswald Chambers until I came across this book at a reduced price and bought two copies, one for a sick friend and one for myself. What a blessing it turned out to be for both of us!
The one-page essays, one for each day of the year (even February 29!), are deeply thought provoking and can be the basis for a daily meditation session. Be warned that the essays can be challenging. For example, Chambers pressures readers to consider whether we are trying to "perfect" ourselves as some kind of model Christian that God can display on a trophy shelf we imagine He has, rather than truly trying to perceive and submit to His will? Or are we interfering with God's will by trying to be an "amateur providence" who helps people through their difficulties by telling them what we think they should do rather than leading them toward Christ so He can tell them what they should to do?
The Scripture verses are from the New King James Version translation.
I HIGHLY recommend My Utmost for His Highest to Christians of all persuasions as an aid for contemplation, encouragement and spiritual growth. This is a rare devotional book that you'll want to keep and refer to or reread frequently.

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.
