Whether in a lecture, a sermon, a book, or a magazine article, Oswald Chambers challenges me like few other authors do. God’s Workmanship is a collection of lectures and articles which were odds-and-ends until his wife compiled them just prior to her death.
Many people know Chambers through his highly popular devotional My Utmost For His Highest. In that devotional book, Chambers shares a short thought, usually centered around a single passage of Scripture. In God’s Workmanship, the feel is very much the same. Each of the nearly 50 pieces which comprise this book are based around a single verse or a short passage from the Bible, but Chambers has more “space” to elaborate on his themes than he did in his devotional book.
The topics are varied, but rich. Themes such as grace, redemption, truth, possessions, personal relationships, the Bible, personal devotions, God’s holiness, sin, blessings, and suffering are covered so succinctly, eloquently, and biblically. Next to My Utmost, God’s Workmanship is a great introduction to the breadth of Oswald Chambers’ godly wisdom.
