Each year I read through one of those “daily” reading books. It only takes a few minutes and my way of doing it is to keep it beside my bed so I can’t forget it each night. This last year I decided to read Chambers’ well-known book. It was compiled by his wife after his death in 1917 and is a written collection of lectures which Chambers gave in the last years of his life from 1911 to 1917, mostly at the Bible Training College in Clapham, England. Chambers wrote, sometimes as a theologian and sometimes as a mystic, seldom quoting other writers but feverishly quoting Scripture. The reader cannot miss the dedicated spirit and love for the Lord displayed in these pages, though sometimes it leaves one scratching one’s head for definitions. But I liked it (because my head needs scratching) because it made me constantly evaluate my own commitment and devotion to the Lord and His ministry.
