A Christian classic. Each day Chambers gives us a brief Bible verse and then takes us to a surprisingly deep and personal place as he meditates on that thought. If you are at all interested in knowing God better, you will be glad you found this book. Classy leatherette cover, too.
I can only say that every Christian who is serious about following the Lord needs to become familiar with "Ozzie". He can be hard on you, but he is always right, sometimes funny, never condemning. He's one of those I'm eager to meet in Glory. He has a large following, and you can always tell a believer who has been influenced by him - they're the ones who have a certain "something" about them that you can't quite put your finger on, but you're attracted to them.
Gathered from Chamber's sermons by his wife, I wish I could thank her personally. In my opinion, this is THE best devotional book of all time -- deeply grounded in God's truth and full of invaluable insights from a life devoted to God's glory. I have been using my now dog-eared, coffee-stained copy for years ... no longer daily but, at the very least, weekly. There is rarely a morning when I open it that God does not speak to me big time. I have quoted Oswald for years in my Bible studies and teachings. He is notorious for urging one higher and higher in one's Christian walk until one can honestly proclaim from the depths of one's heart, "My utmost, Lord, for your highest!"
This book has been life-changing for me. I thank God that Oswald Chambers wrote it.
I have 3 copies of this book so I can be sure to always have a copy handy! After years of using this devotional, it is amazing how relevant it remains.
