His insights into holiness, absolute devotion, and the pursuit of God have inspired countless Christians, challenging them to give their "utmost for His highest." Devotions for a Deeper Life is a collection of some less known writings by this beloved Christian author. Excerpted from articles published in God's Revivalist in the early 1900's, this year's-worth of daily devotions bears Chambers' characteristic stamp of practicality and profundity, freshness and fire. Here are the meditations of a man of the Bible and a man of prayer, reflections as timeless as the illuming ministry of the Holy Spirit. More than just a devotional, Devotions for a Deeper Life is a treasury of truths that will open your spiritual eyes to the incredible, full scope of Christ's work, of the Holy Spirit's guidance and power, and of God's calling on your life that bids you rise higher than you've ever thought possible.
