Product Description

From the Back Cover

The whole book is a mere effort to arouse the average Christian worker to study the wealth of Scripture, and to become better equipped for dividing the Word of Truth.
This simple ending to "Biblical Psychology "by Oswald Chambers one of the few books the author saw in print before his death in 1917 at age 43 represents the humble intentions and mighty effects of all the more than two dozen titles that now bear his name.
In this pioneering work, Chambers looks deeply at the theology of the soul. Basing his teaching on the foundation that God created people as relational creatures, Chambers looks at the psychology of man s inner life and how he relates to God, to others, and to himself. He explores the moral dilemmas and emotional complexities Christians face as they try to reconcile their faith with a world full of fear, anger, shame, and selfishness; and he offers scriptural answers for these struggles.
Here we see Chambers acute mind at work, sorting through Scripture and what God reveals there about the heart, soul, and spirit of people, and the effect redemption has on us and our relationship to God."

About the Author

Oswald Chambers (1874-1917) was born July 24, 1874, in Aberdeen, Scotland. He came into a personal relationship with Jesus as his Savior in his teen years under the ministry of Charles Haddon Spurgeon, and studied art and archeology at the University of Edinburgh before answering a call from God to the Christian ministry. He then studied theology at Dunoon College. From 1906-1910 he conducted an itinerant Bible-teaching ministry in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Japan.In 1910, Chambers married Gertrude Hobbs. They had one daughter, Kathleen.In 1911 he founded and became principal of the Bible Training College in Clapham, London, where he lectured until the school was closed in 1915 because of World War I. In October 1915 he sailed for Zeitoun, Egypt (near Cairo), where he ministered to troops from Australia and New Zealand as a YMCA chaplain. He died there November 15, 1917, following surgery for a ruptured appendix.Although Oswald Chambers wrote only one book, "Baffled to Fight Better" (since updated and titled "Our Ultimate Refuge"), more than thirty titles bear his name. Mrs. Chambers, a court stenographer, compiled the rest of her husband's published works from her verbatim shorthand notes. For half a century following her husband's death she labored to give his words to the world."My Utmost For His Highest," his best-known work, has been continuously in print in the United States since 1935 and remains in the top ten titles of the religious book bestseller list with millions of copies in print. It has become a Christian classic.

The Oswald Chambers material is published and licensed exclusively by Discovery House Publishers through arrangement with the Oswald Chambers Publications Association, Ltd.

What a book; so based on the Scriptures and a fresh look at the creation of mankind as God would have us be. A true understanding of how we were made to be. Forthright and honest it calls you to see the Blessings in Christ and the wonder of Gods Plan of Salvation.

HASH(0x8df03fa8) out of 5 stars Smack in the face of popular [Christian] psychology! 15 Jan. 1998
By - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is a wonderfully refreshing book in light of the overly-sympathetic trends and "what you feel is what is real" psychology of today. Chambers clearly defines psychological health as the life that is Christ. In clearly developed thought he declares that the road to the wholly healthy life is through absolute surrender to the Absolutely Healthy One -- Jesus.

HASH(0x8df08018) out of 5 stars Fascinating insights 3 Aug. 2011
By Craig T. Owens - Published on
Format: Paperback
I'm not one who's into psycho-babble, but I do like trying to understand human nature a little better. A great book to help on this learning journey is Oswald Chambers' "Biblical Psychology."

As you might imagine, Chambers has a heavy emphasis on the biblical part. In fact, he makes the case that no one can really know themselves. But we can know God better, and He will reveal our real selves to us. Chambers delves into Scripture to teach how our body, soul, and spirit interact with each other, with outside influences, and with the Spirit of God.

It was an absolutely fascinating book to read. This is one of Oswald Chambers' longest books, and also one of his most technical books. So be forewarned that you will have to really concentrate and apply yourself to grasp all he discusses, but if you persevere through it, you will be richly rewarded.

HASH(0x8df08450) out of 5 stars Review of Biblical Psychology 11 Jun. 2013
By Homer H. Howell - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a long story. I first had "My Utmost to His Highest" as a daily devotional reading for many years. Then I found and read "Abandoned to God", Oswald Chamber's Biography. From that I found that "Biblical Psychology" was the only book that he had actually read and approved for printing back before his death. His wife took notes of all his teachings and put them in 500 words or less for the daily devotionals. That was printed after his death.
I highly recommend all three books and give them a "5 Star rating.

HASH(0x8df08438) out of 5 stars Anyone in ministry to be a counselor should have to study this! 10 April 2014
By Barefoot Ronko - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Psychology without godly perspective, is like sailing a ship with no sextant, and no star to guide you!

Anyone involved in social work, should have 2 things:
1. A real relationship with the Lord
2. This book

It's not a large book, but I studied it for 2 years as it totally re-wrote my understanding of human behavior!
