"Is life worth living?" Oswald Chambers asked this question in the last lectures he gave before his death in 1917. Delivered amid the bloodshed of World War I, this study of Ecclesiastes confronts the despair that characterized both Chambers' generation and "the Teacher" of Ecclesiastes. With his eyes focused on the cross, Chambers affirms that life is worth living in light of God's redeeming love. Chambers reveals how a redeemed person can glorify God in all areas of life: in work and play, in study, in recreation, in home life, and in social interaction.
Oswald Chambers was born in Aberdeen, Scotland, in 1874. Converted in his teen years under the ministry of Charles Haddon Spurgeon, he studied art and archaeology at the University of Edinburgh before answering a call from God to the Christian ministry. He then studied theology at Dunoon College. From 1906-1910 his career of service took him to the United States and Japan, but the two outstanding periods of his work were as principal of the Bible Training College at Chapham, England (1911-1915), and his ministry to Australian and New Zealand troops as a YMCA chaplain at Zeitoun Egypt during World War I. He died there on November 5, 1917. More than 30 books bear his name, and his best-known book, My Utmost for His Highest, is a Christian classic. - Publisher.
