Few have understood the nature of sanctification, or the nature of God, better than Oswald Chambers. His insights into holiness, absolute devotion, and the pursuit of God have inspired countless Christians, challenging them to give their 'utmost for His highest.' Devotions for a Deeper Life is a collection of some less known writings by this beloved Christian author. Excerpted from articles published in God's Revivalist in the early 1900's, this year's-worth of daily devotions bears Chambers' characteristic stamp of practicality and profundity, freshness and fire. Here are the meditations of a man of the Bible and a man of prayer, reflections as timeless as the illuming ministry of the Holy Spirit. More than just a devotional, Devotions for a Deeper Life is a treasury of truths that will open your spiritual eyes to the incredible, full scope of Christ's work, of the Holy Spirit's guidance and power, and of God's calling on your life that bids you rise higher than you've ever thought possible. -

My thoughts: First, the disclaimer.  "I was provided a free copy of this book. All opinions are my own." That done, DEVOTIONS FOR A DEEPER LIFE  is  a book my pastor-husband wanted for his collection, so when I was offered a chance to review it, I jumped at the chance. Oswald Chambers is a master of writing devotions, even years after his death they are still so very relevant today. 

Each devotion has a verse, a devotion, a prayer, and then a Bible selection for readers to spend more time in the word. In the hardback volume, there is a ribbon to mark your place, and the devotions are each dated for the 365 days in a year so you can read the one marked for the day you are on calendar-wise, or you can read them in order if you want. 

Highly recommended for pastors, families, couples, singles, church libraries, gift-giving and much more. 

Beautiful cover makes it ideal for the upcoming holiday season -- or any season. 

5 stars.
