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.
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.
Features:
• Complete text of the clear, accessible NIV Bible
• 365 daily readings of strength and encouragement from L. B. Cowman
• Foreword by Jim Reimann

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Classic Devotional Meets A Contemporary Text I?ve been enamored with the devotional Streams In The Desert ever since I came to saving faith. So when my wife received a copy of the NIV Streams In The Desert Devotional Bible ? I snagged it. With permission, of course. Zondervan does the usual great job with the NIV text, including textual aids and some cross references at the bottom of the page. However, this is a devotional Bible, not a true study Bible, so don?t look for a lot of that material. It?s strength lies in the devotions that are tied to various portions of scripture; 365 of them, to be exact; one for each day of the year. Drawn from Streams In The Desert, as well as from other authors, the devotions help the reader to ?put shoe leather? to the passage under consideration. I was preparing the evening message when this arrived, and I found material that fit perfectly with my message in the very first devotional. Very cool! The review copy I received was the hardback copy, with a dust jacket. The dust jacket was designed to suggest that this was a book that had been on the shelves for many, many years. As such . . . some might not find it so appealing. Also, one of the ?features? mentioned on the back cover was a ribbon marker. The copy I received did not have that ribbon marker. But I?m not throwing the book back, by any stretch of the imagination. As mentioned, I?ve already ?put this book to good use,? as it was intended. 4 stars for a classic devotional Bible
