Description - Our Ultimate Refuge by Oswald Chambers

Pain and suffering can bring a new understanding of God's majesty, goodness, and plan for us. While few will ever suffer to the extreme that Job did, his character and his dealings with God can bring light to our own pain and to the suffering of others. This thoughtful study of the book of Job explains the positive effects pain can produce in our lives. It also show us how not to deal with those who are suffering. With characteristic insight, Chambers discusses and reveals the inadequacy of our myths of self-sufficiency and eternal optimism.

Oswald Chambers (1874-1917) was born July 24, 1874, in Aberdeen, Scotland. He came into a personal relationship with Jesus as his Savior in his teen years under the ministry of Charles Haddon Spurgeon, and studied art and archeology 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 he conducted an itinerant Bible-teaching ministry in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Japan.In 1910, Chambers married Gertrude Hobbs. They had one daughter, Kathleen.In 1911 he founded and became principal of the Bible Training College in Clapham, London, where he lectured until the school was closed in 1915 because of World War I. In October 1915 he sailed for Zeitoun, Egypt (near Cairo), where he ministered to troops from Australia and New Zealand as a YMCA chaplain.
