From the Back Cover
Oswald Chambers: Abandoned to God, winner of the Evangelical Christian Publishers' Association Gold Medallion for biography.
"Oswald Chambers was a man for all time. His mind 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 remarkable man's life and how, having honored God, God is now honoring him with the only fame that really matters." Cal Thomas, syndicated columnist
"Whoever has read or heard about My Utmost for His Highest must buy and read this book from cover to cover. Your tears will flow, your heart will be moved, the Holy Spirit will speak a word of peace, and your Christian life will never be the same." Harold Lindsell, Editor Emeritus, Christianity Today
"So many millions of us have read his words, been deepened by his prayers, been brought before God by his writing. And now we get to know him. I had no idea what a magnificent life was present behind these marvelous words. Oswald Chambers' writing is validated in detail after detail by his life." Eugene H. Peterson, James M. Houston Professor of Spiritual Theology, Regent College
"If you are one of those who know and love Oswald Chambers' famous book of devotional readings, My Utmost for His Highest--edited and published by his faithful widow, "Biddy" in the late 1920s--you will want to become intimately acquainted with this giant among Christian devotional writers.This new biography offers you that opportunity." D. James Kennedy, Senior Minister, Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church
"Oswald Chambers: Abandoned to God is a magnificent description of how one man sought God and lived out that relationship in the realities of life. It will stimulate you heart to follow God more fully. For years I have used Oswald Chambers' My Utmost for His Highest. In this biography I see where that depth of input was born and developed." Jerry E. White, General Director, The Navigators
"My Utmost for His Highest has become an essential part of the process of maturity for countless Christians over many decades, but we have know little about this man of God whose life has meant so much to so many. I welcome David McCasland's contribution, which goes a long way toward showing everyone how contemporary Chambers' writing really are." James Engel, Distinguished Professor of Marketing, Research, and Strategy, Eastern College
About the Author
Oswald Chambers (1874-1917) was born in Scotland and spent much of his boyhood there. His ministry of teaching and preaching took him for a time to the United States and Japan. The last six years of his life were spent as principal of the Bible Training College in London, and as a chaplain to British Commonwealth troops in Egypt during World War l. After his death, the books which bear his name were compiled by his wife from her own verbatim shorthand notes of his talks.
David McCasland is a writer whose research for this book took him to the scenes of Oswald Chambers' life and ministry throughout Britain, the United States, and Egypt. David and his wife, Luann, have four daughters and live in Colorado.

It has been wonderful getting to know the man behind my favourite book. (Turns out he didn't write it however! It was compiled by his wife after his death from notes she took of his teachings over the years.)
Having read this story of his life his words in 'My Utmost for His Highest' seem even more full of meaning. Now I know that the man who said them also lived them, and didn't just preach them to others.
It is good to have someone show me how it is done! Oswald Chambers is a deep well of wisdom straight from Gods heart.
The lessons to learn from his life are numerous; my challenge to be getting on with is not to worry but to trust God in everything. Carefully Careless Oswald Cambers said.
marvellous words. Oswald Chambers' writing is validated in detail after detail
by his life". I have read 'My Utmost for His highest' for the past 16 years.
I never tire of it, no other daily notes challenge and satisfy like these. The
journal - my one liner comments - makes terrific reading down through the years.
I would recommend this book to anyone who hungers and thirst for a life
'abandoned to God'.
Concentration on God is better than consecration.
Thank you Lord for his Life and help us all to walk with you closer day by day.
