Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

"A deeply engaging and luminous introduction to the life and love story of a remarkable woman."--Robin Jones Gunn, bestselling author

Among Christian devotional works, My Utmost for His Highest stands head and shoulders above the rest, with more than 13 million copies sold. But most readers have no idea that Oswald Chambers's most famous work was not published until ten years after his death. The remarkable person behind its compilation and publication was his wife, Biddy.

Bestselling novelist Michelle Ule brings Biddy's story to life as she traces her from her upbringing in Victorian England to her experiences in a WWI YMCA camp in Egypt to her return to post-war Britain, a destitute widow with a toddler in tow. Refusing personal payment, Biddy published thirty books with her husband's name on the covers, all while raising a child alone, providing hospitality to a never-ending stream of visitors and missionaries, and nearly losing everything in the London Blitz during WWII.

This inspiring story of a devoted woman ahead of her time will quickly become a favorite of anyone who loves true stories of overcoming incredible odds, making a life out of nothing, and serving God's kingdom.

"Mrs. Oswald Chambers is a lively biography of the woman behind My Utmost for His Highest. That famous devotional book probably owes as much to the skills and dedication of Biddy Chambers as it does to Oswald. The story of how it came to be (years after Oswald's death in Egypt) is interesting, and so is the faithful, trusting, and attractive life of the woman who produced it."--Tim Stafford, author of more than thirty books including God's Justice: The Holy Bible

"Oswald Chambers has been a dear friend and spiritual mentor to me over the years. What a delight to get an inside look at the man--and woman!--behind my favorite book, My Utmost for His Highest. Biddy Chambers's willingness to use her gifts for God's glory brought Oswald's words to the world. . . . Thank you for this important new book!"--Joanna Weaver, bestselling author of Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World

Trained as a newspaper reporter, she is a bestselling novelist; blogs regularly on Chambers, travel, and spiritual topics; and has taught women's Bible studies for thirty years.
