REDISCOVER YOUR FAITH AND REFILL YOUR INNER WELLS AS YOU JOURNEY THROUGH GENERATIONS OF FAITH.

In a soul-stirring and uniquely crafted exploration of contemporary Christianity, author Kayleon Dortch-Elliott surveys the intergenerational wells of faith passed down through the years, analyzing each generation's distinctive perspectives and practices.

Dortch-Elliott opens our minds to the evolution of intergenerational faith by drawing insightful biblical parallels. The lives and legacies of the patriarchs of faith, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob are explored astride three of the most prominent generations of our time. Readers are stimulated by an enlightening series of biblical symmetries structured into three major sections and designed to:

  • Analyze how faith has evolved across the Baby Boomer, Generation X, and Millennial eras. 

  • Explore the intergenerational nature of our Christian faith and how this has shifted within increasingly modern contexts. 

  • Highlight cultural and societal changes wrestling against our faith and displacing our Christian identities. 

  • Understand how to unmask our self-crafted, broken wells and reconnect our faith to God's established biblical foundations. 

  • Develop a modern approach to engender strong faith within ourselves, each other, and upcoming generations.

An invaluable resource for the modern Christian whose battle against contemporary pressures sometimes makes the weight of faith unbearable. It is Well: Generational Faith That Never Runs Dry uplifts you with God's everlasting grace, reconnecting your inner wells with the faith of our predecessors, our contemporaries, and the eternal promise of our heavenly Father.

Advance Praise for It is Well

"At a time when the wells of God’s people are empty and broken, Kayleon Dortch-Elliott prophetically calls forth the Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob generations to re-dig them. She writes with prophetic insight and unusual clarity concerning the current state of the church juxtaposed with the biblical mandate to nurture intergenerational faith.
 
Her book is a must-read for all generations—especially Millennials—to reclaim the spiritual wells dug by their forbears. Her message is clear: come to the well that never runs dry."

Amazon Review for It is Well

FOLLOWING NEARLY THREE DECADES OF DECLINE IN RELIGIOUS IDENTITY AND AFFILIATION, IT IS WELL COMES AT A CRUCIAL TIME IN OUR HISTORY.

"Two tasks associated with intergenerational faith have turned out to be more complicated than we thought. One involves respecting the tradition of faith, while the other involves grasping the significance of God and faith in the context of our own generations. It has been especially difficult given the shift of religious boundaries between each generation. These shifts stem from our frustration with ancient wells that appear to be no longer functional in our modern contexts."
