The Well: A Book Review and Giveaway

About The Book:


Why are so many so close to the Well and still so thirsty? Mark Hall takes the powerful story of the Woman at the Well and her encounter with Jesus to help readers understand that the “wells” we go to for life and sustenance, the “wells” of success, talent, control, favor, religion, etc., are keeping us from relying on Jesus and his abundant life, and we will never be truly satisfied until we realize that and go to Him for our needs.


You can read an excerpt of The Well here, in PDF format.




About The Author:


Mark Hall is a true storyteller and a teacher with a heart for ministry. He's lead singer and songwriter for the Grammy Award-winning band Casting Crowns, whose first three albums have sold nearly four million copies. He has been in ministry for 20 years and has served at Eagle's Landing First Baptist Church in McDonough, Georgia, for the last eight years. Mark admits he would be overwhelmed by life's demands were it not for his wife of nineteen years, Melanie, who also serves as Casting Crowns' road manager. Even on tour, Mark and Melanie homeschool their three children, John Michael, Reagan, and Zoe.







My Review:


The Well is a very well written, easy to read and comprehend that gives very real life applications of the story of the Woman At The Well Story from the Book of John. It is not a hard book to read, and in fact I read it in two days. But it does go deep and really will challenge you to really "let go and let God".  You will learn about all the different wells we each have and go to for approval instead of going to Him, our true giver of water. To give up everything to Him, so we can truly experience what it means to come to The Well.


I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up.
