The Well Digger: Flourishing in Your Desert by F. Lionel Young III
The Well Digger is a little book about flourishing in the desert in the middle of a famine. It is the story of the forgotten patriarch, Isaac, who faced famine, failure, frustration and foe—but never gave up. He just kept digging wells, and God continued to bless him after every disappointing loss. Written by a pastor-theologian, this heartfelt reflection on the challenges of life helps bring clarity to the biblical picture of blessing. This inspirational work is rooted in the biblical text and nourished by the ancient wisdom of people like Origen of Alexandria, Augustine of Hippo, Martin Luther, John Calvin, Jonathan Edwards and C. S. Lewis.
