Mingling personal anecdotes with Scriptural wisdom in this unabridged audio download of Streams: Reflections on the Waters in Scripture, author and pastor Murray Andrew Pura explores the many ways water is portrayed in the Bible. From creationwhen the earth was formed from waterto its possession by Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob for their flocks. From the exodus and the parting of the Red Sea to the time of the prophet Elisha and the healing of Namaan the Syrian in the Jordan River. From the rise of the kingdom under David to the fall of the kingdom and Israel's exile by the waters of Babylon. In all these dramatic events, and many more, Pura demonstrates how the physical and symbolic representation of water in ancient Scripture offers you, as a modern Christian, new insights about following Christ. Pura also examines how water was used in Jesus ministry: Jesus was baptized in water, walked on water, turned water into wine, and healed with water. Understanding the symbolism of water is key to understanding Scripture. You will meditate on: The Red Seas challenging waters How do we conquer obstacles? The rivers of Babylon and their waters of darkness How do we handle tragedy and suffering? Streams in the desert and the waters of rejuvenation What do we do when our spiritual lives are dry? And much, much more. This refreshing new audio download will help you discover the deeper meanings of water in Scripture and better understand the life-giving power of a Christian life.

MarbieThe NetherlandsAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Adventurous - Exiting - Sobering and EncouragingSeptember 6, 2012MarbieThe NetherlandsAge: 35-44Gender: femaleIn Streams author Murray Pura takes us on a journey alongside several important waters in the Bible. He explains the importance of water in Scripture and blends his own - sometimes difficult - life experiences in the story. Israel met several obstacles in waters like the Red Sea and when they sat at the River of Babylon. As modern Christians we meet the same sort of obstacles and need God to help us through.
There are times we dwell in a spiritual desert where everything seems dry and lifeless. We see Elijah and David also go through that. It's encouraging to read how the author honestly writes about the time in his own spiritual desert.
There are found new beginnings and new life at the Jordan River. At the Sea of Galilee Jesus was always there for his disciples - just like He is always with us now.
This book is adventurous, exiting, also sobering and encouraging - it offers hope through our tribulations. It's beautifully written and once again the author knows how to paint the story in the reader's mind.
I have also listened to the audio of this book - which the author has narrated by himself. I believe listening to the author reading his own book will only add to the blessing this book already is.
