Here are a few things you may not know about devotional author, Oswald Chambers.

1) He didn’t sit down and write My Utmost for His Highest. How it came about is one of Christian literature’s great behind-the-scenes stories (and a fine love story).

2)  He became a Christian after hearing Charles Spurgeon preach.

3) Oswald and his wife, Biddy, operated a Bible College in Clapham, a part of England formerly associated with Christian social reformer, William Wilberforce.

4) He played an important role in Africa during World War I.

5) Oswald died at age 43.

For further details about My Utmost for His Highest, including 8 great quotes, and more about what made Oswald the man he was, read his bio.
