Hi. I happened across your blog post, and I agree with it. I haven't read MUfHH all the way through or anything, but I have encountered a lot of his teachings/quotes throughout the years. Often, Chambers is right on. But in so many other ways, I feel he misses the mark. His thinking seems to be very black and white, and he frequently offers up pat answers for complicated situations. He just comes across as a prim know-it-all to me in a lot of ways. Yes, he does seem very legalistic. Anyway, I respect his work, and think he has many good ideas. But he's not one of my favorite authors. In a nutshell, he should be treated like any other writer—test what he says, keep what's good, and discard the rest. He should definitely not be placed on a pedestal or anything: "Well, if Oswald said it, it must be true!!" ;). In the end, it's always important to think for yourself.
