Book Description

“All Christians need desperately to read this little volume again and again, until it sinks down into our subconscious minds—all that matters is our relationship with God!”—P. L., Michigan

Oswald Chambers’ most well-known title, the devotional My Utmost for His Highest, has established him as one of the most influential teachers of our time.

But did you know he wrote books on the Bible as well? Now you can take advantage of this teacher’s profound insight on Matthew 5-7 and what it means to focus on God and God alone.

Studies in the Sermon On The Mount

Author favorite by Oswald Chambers,author of My Utmost for His Highest

One of the worlds most beloved Christian authors gives us insight into one of the most beloved passages of Scripture. this devotional study of the Sermon on the Mount is doctrine in work clothes, truth become reality, redemption expressed. And, as he does in all his works, Oswald Chambers reminds us that our focus must be on God alone and not on those among whom we live.

This series on Matthew 5-7 was first presented during Chambers' teaching ministry in the U.S. in 1907. Since then, it has become a favorite among all his writings for its timeless truths and relevance to the daily Christian life. Once you delve into it, you'll better understand Jesus' teachings on what living really means and find new ways to apply Scripture to your daily life.

As Chambers says, " God remakes us, puts His Holy Spirit in us, then the Holy Spirit applies the principles to us and enables us to work out by His guidance."

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Sermon on the Mount becomes real. January 6, 1999
By A Customer
This incredible little book opens the door to the Sermon on the Mount. Chambers emphasizes that Christ's teachings are not just good words to live by - but a radical view of life that goes against our natural way of doing things. He makes that point throughout that the only way to live the life Jesus outlines is by knowing Him and through the power of the Holy Spirit. Chambers takes of the religious trappings of this teaching and covers it in a way that makes it real and meaningful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Indispensible Insights into Jesus' Teaching August 29, 2004
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Among all the doctrine, parables, and lessons of the Bible, none is as difficult to walk in as The Sermon on the Mount. Jesus' teachings, captured in Matthew 5, challenge and convict all thoughtful believers.

Oswald Chambers offers radical insights into those difficult-to-live-out principles. For example:

"The Sermon on the the Mount produces despair in the heart of the natural man, and that is the very thing Jesus means it to do." p.10 and,

"[Jesus] did not come to teach us only: He came to make us what He teaches we should be." p.10

Even the most mature believer will be challenged by Chambers as he gets infinitely close to our tender spots: "Most of us are pagans in a crisis; we think and act like pagans." p.57

Oswald Chambers, best known for his no-nonsense, plain speaking about the most difficult truths in the Christian experience hits the mark time and time again in this special book.

This is real meat for the hungry soul.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Tool For Congregations October 20, 2007
First I would like to point out that the dark cover shown in the first photo for this product is not the one the publisher is shipping. Oswald Chambers highlights the ability of God in contrast to our inability. And then he challenges you directly to wholly lean on God for your strength to obey God. He emphasizes that the Holy Spirit will come through to help you obey. He's very direct without fancy illustrations. However his typical word picture or illustration usually packs a whale of a punch, driving home the point with a spiritual weightiness not found in many books. I love this guy and highly recommend this particular book. It's worth every penny. An illustration of this is how he couches the idea that you are the salt of the earth against the idea that God has not called us as some seem to believe to be the sugar of the earth. In a few sentences he demolishes what was a very popular view of how Christians should be. He then examines the effects of salt in a few situations (wound dressing for one example) to show that we must impact those around us even if it doesn't feel good for them initially.

He doesn't waste your time with long stories that feel good but don't have a lot of power in them. He packs each paragraph. There are many meaty thoughts in this book. Don't hesitate to purchase a copy if you have an extra eight bucks.

4.0 out of 5 stars We need more "Oswalds" October 23, 2010
I know there are lots of folks familiar with the devotional by Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest. I've enjoyed it myself for years (still receive it daily in my email), and have copies in the original printing and also a copy in contemporary language by James Reimann; very good stuff. It was my experience and enjoyment of this devotional classic that prompted my purchase of Studies in the Sermon on the Mount: God's Character and the Believer's Conduct also by Oswald Chambers. I have one word for you that describes my impressions; magnificent. There.

I am one of the group of people that believe Jesus was describing his kingdom followers on this earth when he spoke the words and teaching of the Sermon on the Mount. It is for this reason that I take such a particular fondness to this work by Oswald Chambers. Rest assured, this little book is not for the faint of heart. If you are familiar with the devotional works of My Utmost for His Highest, you'll already be used to the no-holds-barred delivery of Chambers. He certainly doesn't pull any punches. I love it. In a day and age where many would rather explain away the teaching of Jesus or reduce it to winsome metaphors, Oswald yanks our heads out of the clouds and plants us firmly back on the ground with a "He means what He speaks, people" call to arms. Check this:

"Beware of placing our Lord as Teacher first instead of Savior. That tendency is prevalent today, and it is a dangerous tendency. We must know Him first as Savior before His teaching can have any meaning for us or before it can have any meaning other than that of an ideal that leads to despair."

If you've got the moxy and a heart to really take in the teaching of Jesus, I suggest giving this little book a good read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! May 12, 2008
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is an awesome study aid to Jesus Christ's Sermon on the Mount, Matthew Chapters 5-7. As I read through the book I had so many "WOW!" moments as I began to understand Christ's Words and teaching. It's a deep, but an enriching study. I think studying the Sermon on the Mount and committing ourselves to carrying out the teachings of Christ is what our existence is all about. It's all about Jesus Christ and in keeping it all about Him, life will be full of blessings.

5.0 out of 5 stars A true Oswald Chambers masterpiece April 13, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Oswald Chambers was so inspired that it would be difficult to not allow his writings (presentations transcribed by his wife) to touch your heart and awaken the spirit within. His insights are Holy Spirit inspired and always succeed in giving new depth to scripture, and to how to live them.
