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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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.
