Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0310293332, Paperback)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.

With a heart for ministry, Grammy Award-winning singer and songwriter Mark Hall drills right to the heart of the matter by crafting a powerful message around the story of the woman at the well found in the Gospel of John. In The Well, Hall uses stories from his own life and the lives of others to help us understand why even success-filled lives often seem empty and unsatisfying. In a conversational, sometimes humorous tone, the author talks candidly about his lifelong struggle with dyslexia, his success in the music industry, and the adoption of his Chinese daughter. Through it all he illustrates the folly of seeking sustenance in possessions, acclaim, power, even religion - the false "wells" that soon leave us spiritually parched and longing for something satisfying and eternal. Readers of all ages and walks of life will recognize themselves in these well-drawn stories. Believers and non-believers alike will respond to the frank talk about a common dissatisfaction and the need for quenching a pervasive spiritual thirst. Fortunately, Hall is able to direct us purposefully and compassionately to the only true well.
