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.

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.

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.

Inspirational!

I’ve heard the name of Oswald Chambers for years because of his famous daily devotional. I was excited when I found out that someone had written a biography of him and jumped at the chance to learn about the man behind the words. I was not disappointed. I found his strength and faith in adversity pushes me to look at my own life and consider where I’m at, where I’m going, and how deep and personal my faith is in the whole matter. He lived the kind of life you would expect after reading his devotional.

I’ve never heard anything like this before...

No one I know has ever spoken like this to me before. Neither has anyone ever opened my heart to the Holy Spirit like this before. No book or message or messenger has ever broken me like this before.

Great work of God

Loved learning about this man's relationship with God.
Take away: To be Christ to people. because of an abandon life to Him, makes us much more useful to the Kingdom of Christ t ham to run around staying busy for Him. Good narrator as well.

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.
