Oswald Chambers, a Scotsman who converted to Christianity in his teens under the ministry of Charles Spurgeon, has been affecting Christians with his devotional words since My Utmost for His Highest was first published in 1935. This acknowledged classic contains 365 daily readings that take heady doctrine and make it practical, realistic, and intensely personal. With humor and humility, Chambers speaks plainly to the common man struggling with devotion to Christ in daily living. Worldly cares and self-serving desires begin to lose their appeal as Chambers aides the reader in transforming his mind by viewing life through the instruction of God's Word. Richard Halverson, former chaplain of the United States Senate, attests to this: "no book except the Bible has influenced my walk with Christ at such deep maturing levels." This is Chambers's chief desire, directing the reader to "shut out every other consideration and keep yourself before God for this one thing only--My Utmost for His Highest... determined to be absolutely and entirely for Him and for Him alone." --Jill Heatherly
From the Back Cover
"With the exception of the Bible, no book has had as profound an effect on my life as My Utmost for His Highest... This volume is not a treasure to be admired but a message to be lived... I am greatly encouraged to see these powerful daily devotions updated with more contemporary expressions... It is my earnest prayer that this volume will be received with delight and shared freely." from the foreword by Charles F. Stanley
"This contemporary version of Chambers' classic book is a delight to read and a joy to ponder. I rejoice that a new generation of serious Christians now has access to the treasures Oswald Chambers bequeathed to us." Warren W. Wiersbe
"My Utmost for His Highest is a devotional of fresh and vital insights, even after 75 years. Three cheers for this new edition!" Joni Eareckson Tada
"Praise God! a new generation is on the brink of receiving a bright new edition of this classic!" Jack W. Hayford
"My Utmost for His Highest is one of a kind. It has been a source of challenge and blessing in my own life for years... I don't think anyone can read it consistently without being a better servant of Christ." Ruth Bell Graham

Oswald Chambers' devotional book "My Utmost For His Highest" is a classic devotional - it has a lot of profound thoughts on faith and the we live as people called by God. Even though this version isn't the "new edition" that has been reworked into more accessible language, I'd say that the devotions within are still accessible and easy enough to read. Chambers is good at both giving encouragement from scripture for the times when you struggle and in giving admonishment and challenges for the times when you need to grow, and he alternates between the two quite regularly in this devotional. These are the kinds of encouragement and challenge we all need - even more so when we're in college, often experiencing new forms of freedom and independence that are unfamiliar to us otherwise.
These books are reasonably priced, which makes it nice for a church working on a budget - if you have several graduating from your congregation, you're not spending a huge amount of money to give them something that, if they use it regularly, will go with them through much of the rest of their lives.
Please note: this book is advertised as being 'leather-bound.' It is NOT leather-bound; it's in a hardback edition with a nice dust cover. Frankly, I didn't really expect to get a leather-bound edition at this price point. I'm hoping that Amazon will correct the error soon. They were quite responsive to me.
This hardback edition would make a nice gift, and possibly could be a lifetime gift.
