Mrs. Oswald Chambers: The Woman behind the World’s Bestselling Devotional by Michelle Ule is an informative look into the life of Gertrude “Biddy” Chambers. Throughout the book, we learn how Biddy made Oswald Chambers a household name. Biddy’s life was a fascinating one, and this book skillfully shares her amazing story. I enjoyed learning about who Biddy was and the things that she stood for; she was a smart, talented woman, a loving wife and mother, and a fiercely devout Christian.

I like how the chapters are organized by the year or years that they discuss; for example, the chapter “The Secret of the Lord” talks about 1908 to 1910. My favorite chapter was “The Teaching of Adversity,” which talks about the year 1917. The book also includes sixteen pages of relevant black and white photos, which I loved to look at. Mrs. Oswald Chambers gives readers a detailed glimpse into Biddy’s beautiful world.
