The Well (Why Are So Many Still Thirsty?)

Mark Hall's book, The Well, is a fine exploration of the "holes" many people substitute for "The Well" that is Jesus Christ, as he revealed himself to the Samaritan woman at the well. Unremittingly interesting, Mark (with coauthor Tim Luke) has a knack for storytelling, whether his subject is biblical or contemporary. He touches on such "holes" as "the hole of control," "the hole of talent," "the hole of entitlement," and others. He writes with self-effacing wit, charm, and vulnerability.

Though I listened to the audiobook, I'm told discussion questions are included at the back of the book for group use. I can envision some great discussions on each of these empty "holes" in a group setting.

Mark Hall is the lead singer and songwriter for Casting Crowns, and the book corresponds to the Casting Crowns CD, Come to the Well, released just a couple months ago.
