Publisher's Summary

Oswald Chambers was a man for all time. His was the mind of Christ and so his words are compelling because they reflect the thoughts of our Savior. I am not the first to say that no book outside the Bible has influenced me as much as My Utmost for His Highest. In David McCasland's book we have, at last, the story of this man's life and how, having honored God, God is now honoring him with the only fame that really matters.

    "Christian Biography nut"

    This is one of the best books I have listened to so far.
    Not only is the story of this great Christian one to capture the heart and mind but it is very well done and the narrator Simon Vance is wonderful to listen to. I only wish he did more books.
    Great story with a great narrator. I would surly recommend this to anyone who wants to know more and deepen there knowledge and Faith.

    Story
    "life changing"
    If you could sum up Oswald Chambers in three words, what would they be?

    Spirit filled, authentic, just like us.


    What other book might you compare Oswald Chambers to and why?

    Hudson Taylor's Spiritual Secret


    Which character – as performed by Simon Vance – was your favorite?

    OC


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    no--too meaty


    Any additional comments?

    If you have ever asked "Is God really real?" or "Where is God?" or "Does God care about me?" this is a book for you.

    "Awesome!"

    I agree with the previous review. This was an excellent book to listen to, Simon Vance does great with the voices! It is also inspiring, the ups and downs of Oswald's Christian life.

    "A spiritual giant."

    I feel truly dwarfed as I stand in the shadow of these two spiritual giants, Oswald & Biddie Chambers. Thank you David McCasland for giving us a glimpse at the man, Oswald Chambers.

    "Wow!"

    Oswald chambers was a man who relied on God in a way which is rarely seen. I gained much encouragement from a man of such faith through this book. Also, knowing his life story makes his other works (which his wife compiled) so much more meaningful. Great book, great performance.

    "Exceptional"

    The story is beyond inspiring. The narrator makes Oswald Chambers "come to life." This allows anyone who's ever appreciated My Utmost For His Highest to know the couple behind it.

    "Incredible testimony!"

    A most impressive testimony of a life given to God, and the miracles that faith prompted. I'm grateful to have had this glimpse into the heart and mind of one of my favorite authors. I will not soon forget this book!! It has touched my heart and strengthened my resolve to live solely for my Maker.

    "Could be much better"

    Reads like a very old book. Very wordy and paints a picture of Chambers as almost an angelic being. Having said that I have the highest respect for the man and read after him almost daily. This book certainly has been well researched and does not lack in biographical information. We need more men like him today.
