Publishers Description In a barren wilderness, L. B. Cowman long ago discovered a fountain that sustained her, and she shared it with the world, Streams in the Desert ® -- her collection of prayerful meditations, Christian writings, and God's written promises--has become one of the most dearly loved, best-selling devotionals of all time since its first publication in 1925. Filled with insight into the richness of God's provision and the purpose of His plan, this enduring classic has encouraged and inspired generations of Christians. I heard the flow of hidden springs; before me palms rose green and fair; The birds were singing; all the air was filled and stirred with angels' wings. Now James Reimann, editor of the highly acclaimed updated edition of My Utmost for His Highest by Oswald Chambers, again brings us the wisdom of the past in the language of today, by introducing this updated edition of Streams in the Desert. With fresh, contemporary wording and precise NIV text, the timeless message of the original flows unhindered through these pages, lending guidance and hope to a new generation of believers. We never know where God has hidden His streams. We see a large stone and have no idea that it covers the source of a spring. We see a rocky areas and never imagine that it is hiding a fountain. God leads me into hard and difficult places, and it is there I realize I am where eternal streams abide. Day by day, Streams in the Desert will lead you from life's dry desolate places to the waters of the River of Life -- and beyond, to their very Source.

More About L. B. E. Cowman & Jim Reimann
L. B. Cowman worked as a pioneer missionary with her husband in Japan and China from 1901 to 1917, during which time they helped found the Oriental Missionary Society. When Mr. Cowman's poor health forced the couple to return to the United States, Mrs. Cowman turned her attention to caring for her husband until his death six years later. Out of Mrs. Cowman's experiences and heartbreak came her first book, Streams in the Desert, followed by its companion Springs in the Valley. During the next twenty-five years, Mrs. Cowman inspired several nationwide Scripture distribution campaigns and wrote seven more books. Finally, on Easter Sunday in 1960, at the age of ninety, Mrs. Cowman met face-to-face the God she had served so faithfully for nearly a century.

A Blessing Mar 21, 2007
I was watching Good Morning America one morning and Robin was talking about this devotional book and for some reason it really caught my interest. I have been searching for a true devotional book for several months. My best friend called me later that morning and mentioned that she, also, had seen Robin talking about it so we decided to order it. Little did I know that in just a few days my family was going to be facing a crisis unlike anything we had ever been through. If it were not for this book, I don't know where I would be in my mind and faith at this point. It has truly been the Stream in my Desert.

Very Inspirational book Mar 19, 2007
I saw this on the morning show with Robin telling everyone about how her grandmother had this book and gave it to her. I purchased two -one for my daughter and one for me. We have both enjoyed it so much as it gives you something everyday to encourage you with life's journey. I am planning on giving it for Christmas gifts to my friends as it is perfect for anyone.
