Oswald Chambers

 

 

My Utmost for His Highest

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 Chamber'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."

 

 

 

If You Will Ask

Amazon reader review: This is a magnificent book for understanding God. It takes you further into God's ways of bringing us closer to his heart and learning how to live there forever. It tells of the wonderful power of the Holy Spirit and understanding, what we use to think before reading this book, "unanswered prayers". Beautifully written with heartfelt prayers at the end of each chapter. Great book!

 

 

 

 

 

Studies In The Sermon On The Mount: God's Character And The Believer's Conduct

Amazon reader review: This incredible little book opens the door to the Sermon on the Mount. Chambers emphasizes that Christ's teachings are not just good words to live by - but a radical view of life that goes against our natural way of doing things. He makes that point throughout that the only way to live the life Jesus outlines is by knowing Him and through the power of the Holy Spirit. Chambers takes of the religious trappings of this teaching and covers it in a way that makes it real and meaningful.

 

 

 

 

The Complete Works of Oswald Chambers

Organized around the themes "created in God's image," "called as community," and "citizens of a commonwealth," this collection of two months' worth of prayers has theological depth and contemporary relevance. Both the prose introductions to the themes and the prayers themselves encourage honest struggle and genuine faith and confront the paradoxical relationship of life and death, suffering and love.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Baffled to Fight Better: Job and the Problem of Suffering

Amazon reader review: Oswald Chambers is one of this age's greatest Protestant preachers. He has keen insight into the human condition; consequently, his is able to call all our bluffs. His is also one of the greatest Christ-centered preachers ever. These two reasons are why this man, though he was an active preacher for only a decade, has such sticking power. Chambers died of appendicitis at an early age in Cairo, due to complications with his appendicitis. Providentially, his wife was a trained stenographer, and she kept copious notes of her husband's sermons and lectures. This book preserves these great sermons for all posterity.

Shade of His Hand

Amazon reader review: Too many times Christian writers try to make us believe that if we are good little boys and girls God will pave a way for us with rose petals. Not so Oswald Chambers in this book. He lets us know that life has ups and plunging downs; horrors as well as ecstasies. The trick for the Christian is to developed a day by day realistic relationship with God and to depend on him every step of the way to not only take you through these times, but to lift you up as you go. Oswald does this by an analysis of the book of Ecclesiastes. Few are brave enough to tackle this but this author does it in a very down to earth, nuts and bolts fashion. It gave me a springboard from which to go in my mind and begin to think in a new way about the things that have happened in my life. Through the whole book the author himself shines through as a real person and not just a preacher or teacher insulated behind a pulpit or sitting somewhere writing a book.
