Now in mass market size, this updated edition of Mrs. L. B. Cowmans classic devotional Streams in the Desert comes in two covers. One will appeal to every reader, and the other is ideal for giving to graduates. Beloved by generations of believers, here is a time-tested fountain of faith, wisdom, and encouragement for todays spiritual sojourner.
L. B. Cowman worked as a pioneer missionary with her husband in Japan and China from 1901 to 1917, during which time they helped found the Oriental Missionary Society. When Mr. Cowman's poor health forced the couple to return to the United States, Mrs. Cowman turned her attention to caring for her husband until his death six years later. Out of Mrs. Cowman's experiences and heartbreak came her first book, Streams in the Desert, followed by its companion Springs in the Valley. During the next twenty-five years, Mrs. Cowman inspired several nationwide Scripture distribution campaigns and wrote seven more books. Finally, on Easter Sunday in 1960, at the age of ninety, Mrs. Cowman met face-to-face the God she had served so faithfully for nearly a century.
