Excellent BIble with Devotion

This is a wonderful devotional and Bible in one.  The NIV Streams in the Desert Bible is packed with powerful words from God and from author L.B. Cowman.  I have read through the deovtional Streams in the Desert many years ago, and will do so again as I read through the Bible.

About the author of the devotion, it is written ~ 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.

There are 365 devotions scattered throughout the Bible.  Each devotion has a “go to” line at the bottom of the page, so you can easily locate the next day’s reading. In addition, in the back of the Bible is a listing of devotion by subject.  This way you can find a certain topic you would like to read about.
Overall, this is an excellent devotion, which is in the NIV Bible.

Zondervan Publishers, through Harper Collins had provided me with a complimentary copy of this book, in exchange for an unbiased review through BookLook Bloggers.
