Product Description

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

From the Back Cover

Few books ever attain such a widespread recognition and perennial appeal as Streams in the Desert. Now over seventy years since its first publication, this marvelous devotional by Mrs. Charles E. Cowman has established itself firmly in the ranks of the Christian classics. Written from Mrs. Cowman's rich experiences with life, from its dry wastelands to its well-watered gardens, Streams in the Desert is a legacy of faith and wisdom that is time-tested faithfully to the One who alone can slake their spiritual thirst. In the midst of today's fast-paced world, the wisdom of Streams in the Desert remains refreshing, relevant and trustworthy. Turn to it daily, tune out the clamor of living, and let these prayerful writings inspire fresh hope, confidence, and a deep awareness of God's presence in your life.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Dr. W. G. Covington, Jr. on Nov. 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 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!

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!

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.
