Eager to understand Utmost’s unique ability to bridge her two worlds, she quits her coveted job at The New Yorker in order to look more deeply into the background of the devotional—from the sermons and writings of the Scottish Evangelical preacher Oswald Chambers. Halford beautifully explores who Oswald really was, what ideas informed his teaching and beliefs, and why the book means so much to her.
