"Your daddy has gone to heaven," Biddy Chambers tells her daughter at the opening of this biography of the twentieth-century Scots Protestant minister and teacher. Starting with Oswald Chambers's death from appendicitis at age 43, the book chronicles his early life, his commitment to God, and his missionary work. Simon Vance narrates with an ear for drama, treating the biography as if it were a novel. In quotations Vance gives Chambers a light Scots burr. Thus, the biography serves as a good introduction to both Chambers's writings and a life influenced by both art and faith. Further, it offers insight into why Chambers's religious talks, preserved in print by his wife, are still read well after his death. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 08]
