    1. I read it when I can in the evening. This is not a typical mushy coffee table devotional, not at all. In fact I usually have to read the short entries three times to grasp its meaning. There is so much to chew on with practically every word written. And it is not the easy stuff either- no fluffy emotions. This is testing of faith! No more fluffy good feelings but true inspiration for a radical life of faith.


    2. The copy of My Utmost for His Highest that I have was originally given to my son as a graduation present by the youth pastor of our Church. He left home, went to college, got married and now has a son of his own. Oswald Chamber's classic sat on our shelf for many years, unread, unappreciated and gathering dust beside an equally neglected copy of the Complete Works of Shakespeare. It was only a few months ago when I was going down to visit him and his lovely wife and the uber grandson that I ran [...]


    3. This book makes me so crazy. He'll say something like, "An average view of the Christian life is that it means deliverance from trouble. It is deliverance in trouble, which is very different." (August 2) And I'll say, "Yes, and Amen." Then, two paragraphs later, he'll say, "God does not give us overcoming life; He gives us life as we over come." And I'll say, "What? No." Jesus HAS (past tense) overcome the world -- John 16:33. We don't overcome the world so much as live in that belief -- 1 John [...]


    4. This devotional has put things into perspective for me so many days in a row. Oswald has a way of wording things that really gets deep down inside of you!I have given two copies of this devotional away as gifts and I am about to give my third's a great gift idea, because it's really neat to be able to discuss what this means to another individual seeking christHere is just one small taste of one cool exert:Nov 30"There is only one relationship that matters and that is your relationship to our LO [...]


    5. After finishing this year-long devotional, the depth of my faith has tremendously deepened. I have not yet found an equal to this material. This is worth going through again for the second, third, even fourth time!


    6. " Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free . . . " ( Galatians 5:1 ).A spiritually-minded person will never come to you with the demand . . . " Believe this and that " ; a spirtually-minded person will demand that you align your life with the standards of Jesus. We are not asked to believe the Bible , but believe the One whom the Bible reveals (see John 5:39-40 ). We are called to present liberty for the conscience of others, not to bring them liberty for their though [...]


    7. Pretty much a must read for every Christian at some stage in their lives! It's a full one year devo, which you can go through time and time again! I would definitely recommend it for quiet time with the Lord! <3


    8. Going throught this in a small group setting. I recommend this method so that more meat is in the lessons. There is much there but the way the general points are made may take some Scripture out of context or focus on one point that is not really the purpose.We are on 14 Janonce a week study.


    9. This was the best book I read in 2009, and I couldn’t choose any other. This is a stellar book and an especially good book of devotions. Chambers consistently and insistently reminds the reader of the powerful reality of the Redemption, and he bases all of what he writes on this one fundamental truth. The result of this is daily writings on the Christian walk that are permeated with power and hope. My Utmost came recommended to me by everyone who had ever read it. Now I add my voice to the cho [...]


    10. If Christians are to read only one book *ever* on Christian formation, this book is the one to read. The wisdom of Oswald Chambers' famed My Utmost for His Highest is spread out over 365 daily readings. I started this journey on the first day of 2016 and finished it today, the final day. Written in 1935, the language is a bit archaic, but at the same time, the old-fashioned words and wordings raises this book out of the ordinary into the extraordinary. It's an otherworldly book--there's no other [...]


    11. In order to have written the most successful review for this book, I should have started with Day 1 and wrote something about each entry every day. Sadly, I didn't do that. So I'll just do my best to write a summary of my thoughts of this devotional over the year-long experience of reading it. I hope that any reader of this review finds that helpful.Oswald Chambers is a man who definitely had an ongoing encounter with God. His thoughts tap into every aspect of the experience of following Christ [...]


    12. So how did I like this book??? I gave it 4 stars out of 5 and I sticky noted 48 pages out of the 365 days as my favorites! I would say that is pretty good. I did not give it 5 stars because I have to admit that some of the devotionals just didn't apply to me and some I was left dumbfounded by. Some of those that I didn't understand my hubby was able to explain to me. I am thankful that we read this together or I probably would have quit before we finished, and there were some gems in those last [...]


    13. A masterpiece devotional writer, and excellent evangelist and teacher, Oswald Chambers has become near and dear to so many Christian families with the enduring "My Utmost for His Highest." Arguably the most popular classic devotional of all time, there is a reason why Oswald is read and beloved by so many saints around the world.Each day is a new topic, with a specific scripture wherein Oswald not only leaves plenty of spiritual milk to drink, but also tons of spiritual meat to chew. Each senten [...]


    14. - This book makes you look at yourself, think, and act.- If you are typical, you will use this book every day for the rest of your life!- No book, except the Bible, has influenced my walk with Christ at such a deep and maturing level.- This book constantly reminds me that the ground of faith and experience is the person of Jesus Christ. The basis of faith is always Jesus Christ Himself.- These daily readings have been selected from various sources; chiefly from the lectures given at the Bible Tr [...]


    15. 1/1/16: I was given this book as a graduation present (way back in 2002) by my youth pastor. I have read random pages over the years but never cover to cover. This year on top of reading the entire Bible I will be using this book as my devotional. From time to time I will add to this review my thoughts on readings that really speak to me. 1/7/16: Yesterday I overslept and had to rush out the door and skipped the reading- thinking I'd make sure to pick it up the second I got home. Well that didn' [...]


    16. Rarely do I come across a daily devotional which offers the wisdom and insight that My Utmost provides. Coming from an author who died early into the 20th century, the journal entries seem to jump off the pages in overall relevance and knowledge that is current to today's worldly affairs. Oswald Chambers was gifted with extracting the essence of biblical principles and condensing them into potent, thought-provoking, and life-changing devotions. They say it takes close to 3 weeks(or 21 days) to d [...]


    17. This is the best devotional book I have ever read. Along with my bible it is going to remain a staple in my devotions from here on out. It is so well written and so realg one to giving their all to God. I read it through, but I will keep it out to read one devotion each day along with my Bible reading, which is how I believe it is mean to be used. Oswald Chambers' walk with God is so close and so real and down to earth he conveys this so well in this beautiful book, it brings home the point that [...]


    18. When it comes to devotionals, I always return to this one and have read through it several times. Oswald Chambers doesn't pussyfoot around and let you remain "average." For him, you must be DEVOTED to Christ and to Christ alone._______________________________Another year with Oswald Chambers' classic edition of his best known work. It's still worthy of 5 stars. During 2018, I'll be reading a copy of the updated version which I found in a thrift store.


    19. I am so grateful to my friend Joy who gave this to me for my b'day; I have loved reading through it this year and applying the truths I have read within its pages. I will be using this again; such a great devotional. I highly recommend this!


    20. Classic devotional from Oswald Chambers. Every Christian should read this. It has been a true blessing during my devotional time with the Lord.


    21. Today I finish one of the world's most popular devotionals. It lives up to the hype and goes far beyond. This past year has been one of the most I've grown, primarily because of family, and this devotional has been a valuable contributor speaking wisdom each day."The most impossible thing to you is that you should be so identified with the Lord that there is nothing of the old life left. He will do it if you ask Him. But we have to come to the place where we believe Him to be almighty. Faith is [...]


    22. This is a book that can and should be picked up every day to get inspired and stirred up thoughts about the christian faith and a closer walk with Jesus Christ. It is truly invaluable and still relevant in this time and age. It is a wonderful devotional writing that has touched so many people before us and most likely will continue to do so in the future.


    23. The best daily devotional I have read in a long time. I copied many passages from it throughout the year. So challenging and meaningful. I want to see if I can find a good biography of Chambers' life now. I will definitely re-read this one.


    24. I just can't finish this book. I know many of you love it, but it is so boring and not written in everyday terms. I'm not sure why my sister recommended it to me. She can now have my copy. I'm done.


    25. One of the most powerful devotional book ever written. I recommend it to anyone who needs encouragement from the Lord every day.


    26. My mom bought this somewhere, but she has never really read it because she already has a couple of devotionals that she loves (Springs in the Valley & Streams in the Desert) - so I just went ahead and stole it from her! I've been reading it for the past week or so, and I'm really enjoying it. It cuts straight to the heart of the matter at hand. It tells it like it is just good, Bible-based truth. I've tried reading Streams in the Desert before, and although that one has always been close to [...]


    27. Showing my spiritual immaturity and literary ignorance, I only learned about this masterpiece through working with the Billy Graham Evangelism Association in raising funds for the 1993 Pittsburgh Crusade. What a wonderful time and this was but one of the jewels found during this experience. This is one of the world's great books. Surely one belonging in the "classics" category. It is the all-time "best-seller" among Christian devotionals. And the story of how Chambers' widow was called and perfe [...]


    28. 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 I n daily living. Richard Ha [...]


    29. Compiled by his wife, (he burned all of his personal writings) this collection of sermons and talks from her verbatim short-hand notes are very inspirational.The profound depth of these writings goes beyond philosophies developed by a man. These are the writings of one who has experienced true, transforming relationship with the Creator of All in every area of life.Its practicality is almost a hindrance in understanding it to me. I read it to find some deep spiritual meaning, and find that what [...]


    30. A great friend and missionary once recommended this work to me when I was but a teenager. I had never heard of it before, but picked it up with great vigor. Although Chambers' theology is a bit funky from time to time, he hits the mark more often than not. Chambers has a unique insight into the heart of man and applies Scripture to the hearts and motives of his readers. This is not a book for those who would like to read a little and then continue in a life unchanged by the Word. No, this is a b [...]
