My Utmost for His Highest by Oswald Chambers would be perfect for Daily Readings.

It looks like My Utmost For His Highest is available to read a number of places online - for example, http://utmost.org/.

Accordance deserves this work. I use Logos ONLY for this devotional feature. If you wouldn't go to an online Bible program, why would you do so for an integrated devotional where you could (shift-control + and -) to switch from devotional to devotional, highlight, and make notes associated with. Just today I read it in Logos, it sure would be nice AND FAST in Accordance.

Just wondering if there's been any progress in getting this classic... is it possible in the near future or is it a licensing issue?

I have sent an email through the contact form on utmost.org asking if it is ok to make an Accordance user tool from their site and if it would be ok to upload that module to the Accordance exchange. When I hear back I'll update the form.

Here is the relevant part of the email:

According to Wikipedia the book was published in 1927 in England and in 1935 in the USA. I believe that does not put it in the public domain. I know that logos has an Oswald Chambers collection as well as the devotional; perhaps there is another route for the e-text.

Great quote from Oswald that I'm using in a sermon on Galatians 1 tomorrow:

 

There is a certain pride in people that causes them to give and give, but to come and accept a gift is another thing. I will give my life to martyrdom; I will dedicate my life to service I will do anything. But do not humiliate me to the level of the most hell-deserving sinner and tell me that all I have to do is accept the gift of salvation through Jesus Christ.

 

Just here to add my +1 to hoping for this in Accordance some day.
