“The life of a Christian is stamped by a strong family likeness to Jesus,” says Oswald Chambers. But what does it look like for Christians to bear this “family likeness”? In Bringing Sons unto Glory, Chambers examines the four Gospel accounts to draw a portrait of Jesus Christ, asking what exactly His bodily incarnation means for us today. When we gaze on His sacred personality, we can, as the apostle Peter writes, participate in his divine nature—and understand more clearly the life of discipleship.
Chambers explores the value of spiritual discipline and shows how the Christian experience is not only a thing that we can work out but a matter that God works in. Your enriched insight into Jesus’ life and mission will help you understand and appreciate your own life in Christ and your eternal destiny with Him.
Oswald Chambers (1874–1917) is best known for the classic devotional My Utmost for His Highest. Born in Scotland, Chambers had a teaching and preaching ministry that took him as far as the United States and Japan. He died at age forty-three while serving as chaplain to Allied troops in Egypt during World War I.
