    Gold Nuggets For Every Season
    October 4, 2014
    Joan
    "A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in a setting of silver." [Proverbs 25:11]

    Sometimes you just have to sit back and let yourself be amazed again and again at the good 'before-hand' of our great Lord! I'm sure L. B. Cowman never would have imagined the degree to which God would use her painful experiences to bless all of us --even to this day, long past her home-going. Streams In The Desert is the product of Mrs. Cowman gathering and compiling nuggets from the writings and oratories of Augustine, Phillips Brooks, Henry Drummond, Jonathan Edwards, A.B. Simpson, Emerson, Longfellow, Frances R. Havergal, Harriet Beecher Stowe and a host of others into one place for her personal healing and comfort. This gem has survived well beyond her death (her falling asleep) because it has been appointed by God for ALL our times --our seasons. We all need encouraging especially "in the night seasons". This is my third purchase for a friend and family who are going through or are coming through 'something'. But this little gem isn't just for the hard times. What a great gift to us, from the Lord through Mrs. Cowman,to help prepare us to faithfully FACE the painful time(s) coming into our lives, our homes, with our children or grandchildren. And, WHAT a gift to give!

    As for the product. It's ribboned, it's housed in a beautifully soft walnut Italian, it's the right size for display wherever or to carry in a purse or business satchel or briefcase, backpack --whatever. At it's so readable thanks to Jim Reimann who has done a superb job once again by making the original work accessible to our 21st Century minds and eyes, without fiddling with Cowman or all contributing authors' work. For me (and maybe you will, too), I was introduced to some deep Christian thinkers of yesterday who I never met in print. This was another blessing on my purchase(s); I was encouraged to search out these saints of yesterday who've become new friends! Finally, CBD (for me) tops any price! They just continue to offer the best product for the best value. Five stars is my only option here to recommend this product highly. But it really gets SEVEN stars from me. Thank you for reading my review.

    A classic and still relevant. Not your normal 'feel good' devotional but rather a deep, mature guide to leaning on the everlasting arms.

    I have used Streams in the Desert for many years. It is

    written on an easy to understand level. It really enriches

    my relationship to Christ. So often the message is exactly what I am going through.

    I enjoy the large print just for comfort. I do not have to have

    large print but recommend it.

    I give this as gifts and all have enjoyed it.

    A dear friend gave me this book, and it has been such an encouragement to me I wanted to have one on hand to share as a gift. It is a very nice hard cover with paper jacket to keep track of your place in the book. Much food for thought is given, especially if you are in a time of challenge, difficulty, sorrow or just plain struggling with the issues of life.
