I have read this book before and really enjoyed it and normally would give it a 5 star rating but have given it only 2 because it is almost unreadable due to the font size. Recently I bought 8 copies of this particular edition to share with my bible study group at a quite considerable cost. They have just come and I was greatly disappointed when I opened a copy and discovered that the print was miniscule. No one wants them because they can't read them easily. I will have to try and find some used books of a different edition to use with our study group. If you want this book I would highly recommend it but look for a different edition.

Along with the day's chapter from Proverbs (i.e. November 3rd, read Proverbs Chapter 3) each day I read the day's selection form Oswald Chambers MY UTMOST FOR HIS HIGHEST, and I have been doing so for around forty years now. His simple yet profound direction to keep one's eyes on God and His plans have shaped how my worldview and life. I have checked out other devotionals in the past, some are good, most are trite rubbish, but none better this classic, and I have found none that match it for continual life-changing use along with a devotional life of prayer, Bible study, praise and worship.

The content of this book is amazing, but I clearly failed to read the reviews before ordering. Or I clicked on the wrong edition...? The print of this book is unbelievably small. I would guess the font size to be SIX - about like your average footnote. Definitely buy this book; but in a different edition.

The print in this book is extremely tiny so those with vision issues may not be able to read it, but the contents of the book make it very well worth the purchase. Very glad I bought it, will use it daily for the rest of my life!

Format: Paperback
My Utmost for His Highest is the granddaddy of 20th century devotional books. I remember seeing a copy of Oswald Chambers' book on my dad's bookshelf, and I was given a copy of book in 1979 by my Sunday school teacher and Bible study group leader when I was a senior in high school attending a Bible church. It would make a great gift for any Christian you know who is looking to spend more time with God in His Word every day.

It is still a perennial favorite among Christian devotional books, and I think there are a number of reasons for this. First, Chambers wrote in a simple format: one verse from the Bible, followed by one page of devotional writing. This simple format makes My Utmost for His Highest very easy to use and to keep up with. The second reason this book continues to be a favorite is that Chambers writes simply, forcefully, and practically. There is also a directness and power in Chambers' words that touches his readers.

For these reasons, My Utmost for His Highest has become a classic. Anything that encourages people to read their Bibles, reflect on God's Word, and attempt to live by it is a very good thing. However, such devotional books are, ultimately, very limited. Scripture is meant to be read in its entire context, and not chopped up into single verses. Reading My Utmost for His Highest has benefited me, but as I've gotten older it always leaves me wanting something that goes more deeply and broadly into Scripture.

Having said all this, I'm truly thankful that Chambers doesn't sugarcoat the Christian life but clearly communicates that it is a difficult one. For the kind of simple, daily devotional that it is, My Utmost for His Highest will always remain a classic.

This should be noted somewhere on the detail about this book! The font on this book seems to be about a 6 point. My eyesight is good and I don't need reading glasses, but would need to purchase some for this book. I sent it back. The only problem is that I want a paperback and can only find another one in the large print edition.

Could there be a happy medium??

Very timely delivery, excellent condition. This is the way to start my day - thought-provoking commentary and so pertinent for all Christians (and others).

His writings are targeted toward your heart. Sometimes, I don't understand where he is going, because I'm still growing. However, each day when you read his thoughts and ask the Holy Spirit to allow you know what God is saying. Then he always hits a nerve. So, if you want a life-changing attitude, this would be the one to read and study.
