Principal of London Bible Training College and YMCA Chaplain to British Commonwealth troops in Egypt during World War I. Wife's notes of his sermons and classes resulted in famous daily devotional classic, My Utmost For His Highest . In 1915 Oswald Chambers was commissioned by YMCA to go to Zeitoun, Egypt, where he ministered to Australian and New Zealand troops. Many of Chambers' devotional lectures make up a large portion of his classic book. His death, the result of a ruptured appendix in 1917, came as a shock to all who knew him. He had often told friends: "I feel I shall be buried for a time, hidden away in obscurity; then suddenly I shall flame out, do my work, and be gone."
Son of the Rev. Clarence Chambers; husband of Gertrude Hobbs Chambers; father of Kathleen Chambers; of 40 Church Crescent, Muswell Hill, London.
