Streams in the Desert

First published in 1925, Mrs. Cowman’s Streams in the Desert is a masterful compilation of inspirational writings from a variety of sources. She collected these works during the dark time in her life when her beloved husband, Charles, was terminally ill.

Her devotional has brought comfort and encouragement to millions of people around the world who also face difficult times. Now a new generation of readers can discover the rich, timeless encouragement and inspiration – in language they can easily understand.

Streams in the Desert offers a refreshing daily dip into God’s purpose, plan and enduring promise.

Lettie B. Cowman’s popular and inspiring devotional is now updated for the ’90s reader and includes NIV Scripture with each reading.

She served with her husband as a pioneer missionary in Japan and China and was instrumental in founding the Oriental Missionary Society. Her devotionals are second only to those of Oswald Chambers in worldwide popularity. She died in 1960 at age 90.

Jim Reimann has modernised this second-most-popular devotional of all time and made the encouragement and inspiration of its pages more accessible to today’s readers. Reimann is the editor of the best-selling, modernised version of Oswald Chamber’s My Utmost for His Highest.

ABC’s Good Morning America anchor Robin Roberts reads Streams in the Desert every day. Roberts said, “It’s my most prized possession…my family, each of us has a copy and we read it every morning…it just brings us closer together.”

Everyone goes through difficult seasons, tough losses, and moments that feel unbearable. In today’s world, people thirst more than ever for reassurance and guidance. Streams in the Desert provides a river of wisdom, encouragement, and inspiration to weary travellers.
