Oswald Chambers was converted in his teen years by the ministry of Charles Spurgeon. Chambers studied art and archaeology before answering the call to Christian ministry. Author of the bestseller My Utmost for His Highest, Chambers has more than thirty other titles to his credit, all but one compiled by his wife, Gertrude.
 
 

          TO THE READER

If the reader is serious about life and death and all in between, this book can be a source of comfort and joy-but to readers who are not serious, be careful! These are chastening words-real words. “They are like the Bible; they do not thrill, they nourish;” for like the biblical writers, Chambers nourishes us-but roughly. The reader should also know that while Chambers’s words do not appear in their original context, a careful effort has been made to present each statement complete in itself. The statements are reprinted exactly as they appear in the first edition, with one exception: To maintain the flow of Chambers’s words, his quotations from Scriptures appear without citations.

I count it an honour and privilege to have compiled this anthology, I can claim no praise, for none of these words are mine. But, as a reader, I have found them full of wonder. To me they seems to echo what God is saying to mankind.

Harry Verploegh

 

Harry is so right. When I read Oswald Chambers, I (M.J. Andre)  KNOW without a doubt that he experienced God deeply and he learned the hard way at His feet. Hence why he echoed in his writings, what God is saying to mankind. With that in mind, I have been so blessed through reading his words, I have decided to make this book available to everyone of my readers, through a 52 weeks themes postings and I hope you will be blessed as I have been blessed by them.  Note, that I am not able to find this book for sale on Amazon. It seems out of print.

Please keep in mind that those 52 themes are mainly quotes from Oswald Chambers books that he had written over the years. 

May you be blessed, In His Agape Love, 

M.J Andre
