Nashville, Tenn. June 23, 2011... Mark Hall, frontman of the GRAMMY ® award-winning mega group Casting Crowns, will publish The Well: Why Are So Many Still Thirsty? with Zondervan. The newest book from the platinum selling lead singer will hit retailers this September.

In addition to his music, Hall has been the student minister at Eagle’s Landing Baptist Church outside of Atlanta for the past 18 years. With co-writer and fellow pastor Tim Luke (author of books such as Your Own Jesus), Hall uses the powerful story of the Woman at the Well and her encounter with Jesus to help readers understand why life often seems so unsatisfying. What many believers consider wells that sustain them—like success, talent, control, and favor—are really just holes that keep them from relying upon Jesus and the abundant, refreshing life He offers.

“I’m confident you will see yourself many times over in this book,” remarks actress Candace Cameron Bure (“Full House,” ABC Family’s “Make It or Break It”) who wrote the foreword for the book. “As I pray through this latest challenge before me, I’m thankful that the Lord used His Word and Mark Hall’s keen insights to give me this crucial reminder.”

Fellow GRAMMY ® winner Steven Curtis Chapman also supports Hall’s latest book saying, "I love Mark Hall's heart. When he writes, whether it's a song or a book, it's always from the heart of a gifted teacher and an earnest friend. This book is another rich example of that, and I've been ministered to deeply as I've read it.”

The Well ties into the release of Casting Crowns’ newest album releasing this fall, Come To The Well. Additionally, the “Come To The Well” tour will launch this September, and hit 40 markets nationwide.

When The Well hits retailers this September, it will be featured for $14.99, ISBN 0310293332, 5.5 x 8.5.
