Streams in the Desert Author:Mrs. Charles E Cowman Publisher's Foreword: — In 1925 the first edition of Streams in the Desert was released. In it were thoughts, quotations, spiritual inspiration which had helped to sustain Mrs. Charles E Cowman during her years of missionary work in Japan and China- particularly the six years she nursed her husband while he was dying. After two years and three ... more »thousand books in print it was suggested to Mrs. Cowman that since all her friends had copies, there was probably no need to print any more.
From this humble beginning, Streams in the Desert has become a daily devotional classic, a leader in its fielf for more than forty years. At various times it has appeared in more than a dozen languages, and at present is in four foreign language editions. Its ministry is worldwide, unhindered by national, political, or geographic boundaries. From a royal palace in North Africa and a presidential mansion in Asia to wartime concentraion camps...from primitive huts in remote corners of the worls to elegantly furnished homes in cultural centers....to thousands of homes representing a cross section of the world today, Streams in the Desert continues to bring its spiritual refreshemnt, its word of encouragement and inspiration just suited for the moment's need.
For the readers of the more than two million copies now in print, Streams in the Desert is more than a book- it is a living word of confidence and assurance, God's message for the day.« less
