As the Psalmist said, “I thirst for God; the living God,” mankind still seeks that soul-quenching water which was offered through Christ. The Well-Watered Life by Todd L. Shuler uses the images and symbols of water in the desert and, most specifically, the images which come from the biblical account of Isaac. As our hearts and souls find themselves in a time of barrenness, as if in a desert without water, Christ offers his well of living water from which to drink and never thirst again. With each chapter, Todd explores the different aspects of our lives that lead us to our deserts and the thirst that cannot be quenched by anything other than the living water. With each chapter Todd also includes a section called “Takeaways,” which are a quick list of bulleted points from the chapter that are a recap of the discussion of the chapter. Also included is a free workbook in pdf format that can be downloaded and used to accompany the study.

This is not only an excellent study of the symbols of the desert and water as they relate to our spiritual lives, but The Well-Watered Life is a very practical guide for seeking after the promised living water of the Savior. The exposition on the symbols and lessons of scripture are very accurate and the conclusions to which Todd leads the reader are spot on and consistent with other scriptural references. Blessed, practical and encouraging, The Well-Watered Life is a study that will lead you out of the spiritual desert and place you beside the well of living water where you will never thirst again.
