BOOK REVIEW OF THE WEEK: My Utmost for His Highest

I am one of those people that love daily devotions but have problems doing them daily.  I just struggle in general with daily habits.  But My Utmost for His Highest is by far the best devotional I have ever used.  Oswald Chamber’s wife compiled the book of devotions after Chamber’s death from a collection of his writing.  Maybe that’s what I like.  His writings were developed for a variety of audiences from laypeople to theologians to seminary students. 

He’s not one to mix words.  He tells it like is is and I love that.  Other than my Bible, my copy of My Utmost for Hish Highest is my most highlighted, scribbled in and underlined of any book I own.  Before I began my quote of the week, I used to put “Quotes from Ossie” on my blog.  He shared enough wisdom to last a long, long time.

Try it for your devotion in 2011 but be careful which edition you buy.  I have the origional old english sounding version but there is a newer version with updated language.  Both rock.
