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.

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.

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.

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.

A great man and a great wife. Outstanding, walkthr

So appreciate the writing of this book. Enjoyed the content, and also the audio. What really ministered to me was Oswald Chambers wife and her commitement to the Lord and her husband to get so many books published. reaching across the oceans of the world. sharing many precious thoughts and insights. Thank you, and may the Lord continue to expand His Kingdom. in Jesus name. Love Bro-ken

Oswald Chambers' life is hugely inspirational.

Though he died a hundred years ago, his story of his life is still as relevant today as then. His honest quest for intimacy with God and a total dedication to follow His Will make are a powerful example of a relationship with God.
