Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Streams in the Desert is a powerful collection of meditations, Christian writings, and Scripture, and remains one of the most beloved devotionals of all time. This updated edition, however, offers even more, including Scripture, Subject, and Contributors Indexes. Author L. B. Cowman thoughtfully and prayerfully chose the Scripture and penned or selected the meditations she knew would provide a river of wisdom, encouragement, and inspiration to weary desert travelers. Those words are still clearly relevant in today's world, where people thirst more than ever for reassurance and guidance. In this updated edition, however, editor Jim Reimann lovingly combines contemporary wording and precise NIV text to help introduce a whole new generation of believers to the timeless messages of God's faithfulness. Easy-to-read yet true to the essence of the original, this Streams in the Desert offers a refreshing daily dip into God's purpose, plan, and enduring promise. And now this classic content takes on a classic look. The deluxe edition is bound in stunning Italian Duo-Tone---the perfect accent for the beautiful and ageless messages of hope found inside.

From the Author

The late Mrs. Charles E. Cowman wrote the beloved, classic devotional Streams in the Desert. She served with her husband in Japan as a missionary until his illness forced the couple to return to the United States --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

By Dr. W. G. Covington, Jr. on November 25, 2003
Format: Paperback
This Christian classic has helped many people focus their thoughts in the right way while going through challenging circumstances. It is filled with truths from the Bible and quotes from myriad sources. Consider, for example, this quote from George Mueller, "Be assured, if you walk with Him and expect help from Him, He will never fail you." A similar quote from C. G. Trumbull, who wrote of Dr. John Douglas Adam that, "I learned from him that what he counted his greatest spiritual asset was his unvarying consciousness of the actual presence of Jesus."
She writes much about character development and overcoming obstacles. Perserverance is a theme of this book. She reminds us "Power is developed by resistance." A quote from Ruskin tells us, "Not without design does God write the music of our live."
This review has not done justice to this book. No review could. You have to buy the book and read it to gain the full benefit. I recommend you do so.

I have been reading Streams in the Desert since 1967. I started Journaling in it long before journaling was popular. It sure did help me have a beautiful picture of God's working in my life by being able to read through the past years and see how He would turn everything out for my good, even the most horrible experiences, turned out to be for my good and a closer walk with him. So glad the Streams in the Desert journal is in print. It is a great concept. I give it away to all those near and dear to me.

I first read this book in devotional form during a time when I had fewer answers than questions. It opened my eyes to scriptural truths that are so obvious, and yet, at times, so hard to see. Now, years later, I am quite looking foward to including journal writings to enhance the fulfillment this book brings.

I noticed that my mother was using the paperback edition of this devotional to write little prayer requests and thoughts in the margins. This prompted me to buy her the journal version of the devotional which gives her much more space to write and includes the same powerful devotionals. It was a great gift!
Another great idea is the "Devotions for Morning and Evening With Mrs. Charles E. Cowman : The Complete Daily Devotions of Streams in the Desert and Springs in the Valley". Even though it is a little harder to find, my mother claims that the evening devotionals which are taken from Cowman's "Springs in the Valley"
are just as moving as the Morning devotionals (taken from "Streams in the Desert"), if not more so.
I have been reading the paperback devotional and I enjoy it greatly. It is non-judmental and very loving. My fave devotional!

This book was given to me after the stillbirth of our daughter. I was given numerous other books in dealing with death that were too much of a reminder and not encouraging to me. This book helped me so much and is one I have given out now as a gift and one I still pick up for encouragement.

A friend shared her copy of this with me and I loved it immediately and had to buy my own. I have since bought extra to pass out. This devotional is specific for spiritual warfare and just the tough times we experience in our Christian walk. Rather than complaining about trials, I am now rejoicing in the gracious gifts the Lord is giving me through the trials I am facing. This is a must have for the journey.

I have a copy of the 1925 edition of "Streams in the Desert". The layout of putting a Bible verse first and then either a story or encouraging words that are related to the verse is excellent. I have found much comfort in the words written in this little book. Though it is not written in the language of the 90s, it lends a certain elegance that comes only from the use of old English and prose. What a magnificent work of exhortation, encouragement and quaint examples of what the follower of Christ should pursue!

It's a revised updated version, which I don't care for. It is listed as leather and it isn't leather at all, it is some sort of flex cover, and it is small in size. I was disappointed in this purchase, I am happy I didn't pay more for it.
