The Love of God 
.The Love of God (1938): David Lambert
*
identifies the first two chapters as messagesgiven during Chambers’ years in Dunoon, Scotland
*
(1897-1906), and the final chapter“If God Is Love—Why?” as a message given to soldiers at Zeitoun, Egypt,
*
in 1917.This final chapter was printed as a leaflet sermon in 1918 and distributed in Egypt and inEngland.The Ministry of the Unnoticed (1936): These are three talks that were given to studentsat the Bible Training College,
*
London, between 1911 and 1915, most likely during theweekly devotional hour. They were published individually as leaflet sermons beforebeing issued as a booklet in 1936.The Message of Invincible Consolation (1931): David Lambert identifies the material in
The Message of Invincible Consolation
as “two talks given at an Annual Meeting of theLeague of Prayer,
*
on 2 Corinthians 4:16-18 .” Also included is “The Worker andThings As They Are,” likely spoken to a League audience as well.These appeared as articles in
Spiritual Life
magazine from September throughNovember 1930.The Making of a Christian (1918; 1935): Used as a topic in Chambers’ Biblecorrespondence course series, for which Oswald wrote the following introduction:
The object of these studies is to stimulate thinking along Christian lines. So
* David Lambert (1871-1961): Methodist minister and friend of Oswald Chambers. Assisted Mrs.Chambers with OC publications from 1917-1961.* Dunoon, Scotland. A small town west of Glasgow; Chambers spent 1897-1906 at Dunoon TheologicalCollege as a student, then as a tutor.* Zeitoun (zay TOON). An area 6 miles NE of Cairo. Site of YMCA camp, Egypt General Mission compoundand a large base area for British, Australian and New Zealand troops. Site of the Imperial School of Instruction (1916-1919).* Bible Training College: Residential school near Clapham Common in SW London, sponsored by theLeague of Prayer. Oswald Chambers was Principal and main teacher; Biddy Chambers was LadySuperintendent. Known as the BTC, it opened in 1911 and closed in July 1915 because of World War I.* Pentecostal League of Prayer: founded in London in 1891 by Reader Harris (1847-1909), prominentbarrister; friend and mentor of Oswald Chambers.
 
many among us have a good spiritual experience, but have never thought things out on Christian lines. It is just as true that a man may LIVE aChristian life without THINKING it as that a man may THINK a Christianlife without LIVING it; but to combine the two means that great help may berendered during times of confusion, turmoil and tension like the present. Bear in mind that Christian growth is based on the regeneration of a man’s soulthrough Redemption.
 These studies were also delivered as blackboard talks to the troops stationed at theImperial School of Instruction, Zeitoun, Egypt, during July 1917. Chambers, ever theteacher, frequently lettered the complete outline of his lecture on a blackboard beforelaunching into his subject.
