Luxury Edition My Utmost for His Highest, Brown Bonded Leather Cover with Golden Edges / Oswald Chambers / The most beloved devotional of all time
Oswald Chambers (24 July 1874 – 15 November 1917) was an early twentieth-century Scottish Baptist and Holiness Movement evangelist and teacher, best known for the devotional My Utmost for His Highest.
My Utmost for His Highest is a daily devotional by Oswald Chambers (1874-1917) that compiles his Christian preaching to students and soldiers. The book was first published in 1935. The copyright was renewed in 1963 by the Oswald Chambers Publications Association, Ltd. The "Updated Edition in Today's Language," edited by James Reimann, has appeared in a variety of formats since 1992. It relies on the New King James Version of the Bible, and has become a series of Christian devotional journals, calendars, and children's books. The title is taken from one of Chambers's sermons, where he says "Shut out every consideration and keep yourself before God for this one thing only- My Utmost for His Highest". The book is considered to be one of the most popular religious books ever written,inspiring several people such as author Cal Thomas and President George W. Bush.
My Utmost for His Highest has been officially translated into over 39 languages and has never been out of print.
My Utmost for His Highest is broken down into 366 sections for each day of the year, meant to be read daily for inspiration. The book was published after Oswald's death in 1917, with his wife Gertrude Hobbs compiling the passages after his death from her shorthand notes.
The devotionals in the book cover a range of subjects, from what a person should pray for to reflections on the follower's daily activities.

My Utmost for His Highest is an excellent devotional. This leather edition makes a fine companion to a leather bound Bible. I bought it for a gift, and it more than met my expectations.
