NIV Streams in the Desert Bible: 365 Thirst-Quenching Devotions

Book Description: At some point in our lives, we encounter the trials and deep mysteries of the Christian faith. And when we do become like a thirsty traveler, what we most desire is for hope, comfort, and encouragement to burst forth like a sparkling, clear river.
The hopeful daily readings in this Bible promise to revive and refresh you—one of today’s generation of faithful sojourners—by providing daily devotions in modern, easy-to-understand language that beautifully captures the timeless essence of the original. These devotionals are presented alongside Scripture using the popular New International Version of the Bible.
While the devotions in this Bible were originally written by L. B. Cowman—a pioneer missionary in Japan and China from 1901 to 1917—this devotional Bible has been edited by James Reimann. It maintains the beauty of the original Cowman writings while making the devotionals more accessible for the readers of today.
My Thoughts:  I love Bibles!  So, when I had the opportunity to read this Bible, Streams in the Desert:  365 Thirst-Quenching Devotions, I knew I had found the perfect combinations for me! A great Bible with devotions (daily readings) ...two in one!  I love it! And there's more:  • 365 daily readings of strength and encouragement from L. B. Cowman and a pretty ribbon marker so the reader won't lose her place.
I've always loved reading the Streams in the Desert devotionals but having the devotionals and the Bible together is a sweet plus for me.
This is one Bible that would make a great gift for that college student.  It's easy to understand, there aren't two books to carry around and it's just plain wonderful!
I love the description on the back: "Are you in a desert experience? Let your thirsty soul be restored and refreshed through the daily devotions in the NIV Streams in the Desert Bible."  Well said!
