"Streams in the Desert, Vol.1", the unedited version by Mrs. Charles Cowman, differs considerably from the edited version: it's 100% better. I have been a fan of this book since the 1970s when a church member gave it to me as a gift. In the years since, each daily reading seems uniquely fitted to my situation, no matter how many times I've read it before. How many times have I read it before? Nearly daily for over thirty years, and its message remains fresh and pertinent.

"Streams" stands the test of time and deserves placement in a class by itself. I've read many other devotionals, but none has the constant applicability to each new day that this one does.

Mrs. Cowman married a missionary to China, who left for health reasons during the growing unrest preceding the Chinese revolution. She nursed her husband for 17 years, and these pages comprise the individual quotations, Scripture, and personal reflections which comforted her during those trying and agonizing years, and during the following loneliness of widowhood.

The edited versions remove the original spirit which embues her original, and I do not recommend them.

For those who are looking for solace, encouragement, perspective, I highly recommend "Streams In the Desert, Vol. 1." I have given this book to friends and acquaintances over the years, and they have found the same uncanny relevance in this truly inspired and inspiring book.

This is the most artistic take on the daily devotional that I have ever found. I even find myself looking forward to the next reading. I am especially fond of the poetry selection that is used to help illustrate the bible verse.

When I reached my Mother's side when she was in the hospital from a heart attack, she opened her eyes to me and said, 'Roxie, if anything happens to me, I want you to have my 'Streams in the Desert'. Besides her Bible, I knew this was a book close to her heart. Ever since Mother went to heaven these almost 7 years ago, I have found, if I read from this daily devotional book, God meets my daily need time and time again in the multitude of my thoughts and experiences during that day and brings me great comfort. It's like the author fashioned, in this book, daily tools from God's living word and, combining it with the preciousness of knowing my Mother found these 'living tools', also, it is really like finding streams in a dry place. I have also found, at those times when I neglect to read this book in the morning, in a way not meeting God first thing in the morning, then, later in the evening when I do that reading, it was exactly what could have helped me that day. The daily selections are right on for our 'modern' living, because there are certainly dry lands in our days and we need these living streams the author has so skillfully and lovingly shared from her deep faith.

This classic book of daily meditations brings timeless comfort to those who are reaching out in faith. The language in this new version has been updated, so it is much easier to read than the original without losing the depth of meaning. It's amazing how the particular reading for each day will feel as if it were written especially for what you are experiencing at that moment. This book is spirit-filled.

My niece gave me my first used edition of this wonderful devotional, still in print, and I¿ve given copies to many others since then. For each day of the year, it contains a Bible passage, an essay on that passage by someone who loved Him, and often a poem on the same subject. It¿s not only water for a thirsty soul -- it also taught me a great deal about applying the teachings of the Bible to everyday life.
