One of the Devotional books is "Streams: Seeking God in the Waters of Scripture".
"Streams is adventurous, exciting and encouraging!
Murray Pura is a writer who paints with words. Indeed, he nicely paints the stories in the reader's mind where they come to life--it is like you are present during the events he writes about. Not only during his own adventures, but also during Jesus' walk on earth.
Pura beautifully portrays God's amazing love and understanding for us.
For me, as the reader, my thirst was quenched. Reading the author's insight in God's character was so soothing, it was like a cool stream running through me--it watered my soul. What a treasure, what a pearl this piece of work is!" - Marian Baay

Mingling personal anecdotes with Scriptural wisdom in Streams: Seeking God in the Waters of Scripture, author and pastor Murray Pura explores the many ways water is portrayed in the Bible. From creation---when the earth was formed from water---to its possession by Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob for their flocks. From the exodus and the parting of the Red Sea to the time of the prophet Elisha and the healing of Namaan the Syrian in the Jordan River. From the rise of the kingdom under David to the fall of the kingdom and Israel's exile by the waters of Babylon. In all these dramatic events, and many more, Pura demonstrates how the physical and symbolic representation of water in ancient Scripture offers you, as a modern Christian, new insights about following Christ. Best- Selling author Murray Pura also examines how water was used in Jesus' ministry: Jesus was baptized in water, walked on water, turned water into wine, and healed with water. Understanding the symbolism of water is key to understanding Scripture. You will meditate on: * The Red Sea's challenging waters .... How do we conquer obstacles? * The rivers of Babylon and their waters of darkness ... How do we handle tragedy and suffering? * Streams in the desert and the waters of rejuvenation ...What do we do when our spiritual lives are dry? * And much, much more. This refreshing new book will help you discover the deeper meanings of water in Scripture and better understand the life-giving power of a Christian life.
