Oswald Chambers (1874-1917) was a Scottish minister’s son, interested in art, poetry, music and philosophy, whose “dark night of the soul” steered him to “abandon myself to God.”  His conversion led him to a four-year teaching ministry in the U.S., Japan and Britain. He subsequently founded a Bible college in London and then during World War I served as a chaplain in the Middle East, where he died in 1917.  His wife Biddy (1884-1966) organized his talks into several books, including My Utmost for His Highest, which remains one of the top-selling religious books published in the U. S.
