My Utmost for His Highest is a classic of devotional literature. One of the most enduring bestsellers of our time, this book has touched the lives of millions, leading them into a deeper and more passionate walk with God. Shedding fresh light on the Scriptures, Chambers explores the depths of our humanity and our profound need for a God-focused life. Oswald Chambers (1874–1917) is best known for the classic devotional My Utmost for His Highest.

Oswald Chambers was not famous during his lifetime. At the time of his death in 1917 at the age of fortythree, only three books bearing his name had been published. Among a relatively small circle of Christians in Britain and the . Chambers was much appreciated as a teacher of rare insight and expression, but he was not widely known.

Though Oswald Chambers did not mention the phrase "Let God engineer" in the above quotation, this message is a constant theme in his teachings. To me, that is very important.

I love having Oswald Chambers walk alongside me as I study the Bible. He is like a wise, insightful friend pointing out, “Did you see that? Did you notice what God is doing here? What do you think that means for you?” In Our Portrait In Genesis, Chambers walks with us through the first book of the Bible.

Previously I reviewed Not Knowing Where by Oswald Chambers, which looks specifically at the life of Abraham in Genesis 12-25. In Our Portrait, Chambers turns his attention to the other notable people in Genesis.

As he looks at Adam, Eve, Cain, Able, Noah, and the other patriarchs, Chambers is constantly pointing out the lessons we can learn from their lives and apply to our lives. Because of his training in psychology, Chambers is so skilled at knowing what was going on in the minds of these biblical examples, and then helping us examine our own thinking along the same lines.

Our Portrait and Not Knowing Where are tremendously helpful commentaries to read as you work your way through the book of Genesis. As always, you can’t go wrong picking up an Oswald Chambers book!

Our Portrait in Genesis containing the book of Genesis except for Genesis 12-25 . Chambers also wrote Not Knowing Whither, a commentary on the life of Abraham found in those chapters. The two were combined into one volume called Gems from Genesis. These books (like almost all of his) were copied by his wife Biddy Chambers from lectures he gave. I read this work out of The Complete Works of Oswald Chambers.

I thought this was an excellent view of the events and themes in Genesis. There wasn't very much by way of culture, history, original languages, etc. What it contained were some good insights into the text itself; some of this involved cross-references within the book that I hadn't picked up before; some of it was insight into specific details that I hadn't picked up before. The best part of this book was Chambers' insights into human nature, and spiritual realities. He really opens up these peoples' lives (Adam/Eve, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph) in a way that exposes the human characteristics that are common to us all, including profound insight into the spiritual aspect of our lives. He also does a great job of referencing Christ throughout the work, keeping His life as the source of truth that illuminates these and our lives. Perhaps this could be classified as a devotional commentary, but it was deeply challenging, as Chambers usually is.

Here's something I found particularly relevant:

"Unless our ideals find us living in accordance with them they become a mockery. The Bible pays no attention to intellectual and emotional conceptions, but only to the actual manifestation of the ideal. A man may have remarkable conceptions, fine intellectual views, noble ideals and his actual life be beneath contempt, proving that all the high ideals and intellectual conceptions in the world have not the slightest power to bring the life into contact with Reality." (980)

I would recommend this as a good approach to some of the spiritual riches to be gleaned from the book of Genesis.
