L. B. (Mrs. Charles E.) Cowman worked as a pioneer missionary with her husband in Japan and China from 1901 to 1917. When her husband took ill, Mrs. Cowman cared for him until his death six years later. Out of her experiences and heartbreak arose Streams in the Desert. James Reimann, past chairman of the Christian Booksellers Association and former owner of one of the largest, most successful Christian bookstores in the country, is a writer, editor, and retail consultant. His updated edition of My Utmost for His Highest has sold over one million copies since 1992From the Inside Flap:
I said, "The desert is so wide!"What springs to quench my thirst are there?
Where will I from the tempest hide?
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 "RM" -- 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.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 area 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 verySource.
