The aim of Oswald Chambers was all-encompassing: "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." Oswald Chambers was born in Scotland and spent much of his boyhood there. His ministry of teaching and preaching took him for a time to the United States and Japan.
The last six years of his life were spent as principal of the Bible Training College in London, and as a chaplain to British Commonwealth troops in Egypt during World War 1. After his death, the works which bear his name were compiled by his wife from her own verbatim shorthand notes of his talks.
Michael Card is an award-winning singer, songwriter, author and teacher. With over 20 albums to his credit, 19 #1 songs, and 14+ books, he is uniquely gifted and qualified to narrate My Utmost for His Highest. His nuanced and thoughtful reading of this timeless classic provide a magnificent opportunity for those regardless of their familiarity of Oswald Chambers.

"A Pure Blessing!"
Today, I finished listening to Oswald Chambers's My Utmost for His Highest audiobook for the first time. This production is 13 hours and 51 minutes of precious treasure. God willing, I will listen time and time again.
This is the best daily devotional there is. I just wish each day had been recorded as a chapter so that you could go straight to the right day.
"Great book, but execution in Audible is inadequate"
Nothing is wrong with the book or the reader. The only issue is how the book is divided in Audible. This is a daily devotional, but multiple days are contained in one chapter. It would be much better if they went a chapter a day. It would mean 365 chapters, but it would make it much easier to listen to a particular day's devotion.
I love the book, but not the execution of the book within Audible.
If you want to go deeper with the Lord, this is a definite must as part of your daily devotional. Highly recommend it. God Bless You!
So glad to see more of the Christian Classics coming to audio... "whatever is good, noble, pure.... think on these things." I find I am really enjoying having access to the great thinkers of the faith at my fingertips.
"Dont start your day without it"
My Pastor turned me on to this book years ago and I am blessed to have know of its existence
"Excellent translation - great recording"
Very good translation of a classic devotional. The contemporary updated revision is helpful to the listener.
Michael Card's recording enhances the devotional.
"Powerful Daily Devotions"
This is a truly amazing book, full of powerful wisdom. The reading of Michael Card fits the tone of the writing beautifully.
"Audio is Great, but..."
This book of meditations in all the text including the ebook versions, there is an index divided into 365 days. A meditation for every day of the year, yet the chapters of this audio book include months of daily meditations with no index. I would really like to see an update where each day is indexed. The audio portion is excellent.
"THE daily devotional"
This book will make you think as you listen. Yup can't help but do something as it forces you to gaze into the mirror.
