Mark Atteberry provides a strong and supportive antidote to emptiness caused by a "faith famine" in the Christian's life (p. 11). Using Scripture and humor, the author encourages readers to get away from their hectic lifestyles and take the time to enjoy refilling their empty moments with the Lord’s understanding (John 4:5-30), presence, words, promises, love, goodness, victory, and ultimately His return. These also happen to be his chapter themes, each centering around strengthening our faith.
Atteberry is the preaching minister at Poinciana Christian Church in Kissimmee, FL, and he is the author of The Ten Dumbest Things Christians Do and The Samson Syndrome. He has a refreshing, uplifting, no-nonsense approach to the lives of those belonging to Christ, and he presents it well in Free Refill.
Certainly, finding out how to replenish our faith is not only for those experiencing emptiness and bewilderment; it is important for all who claim Christ as their Savior and Lord. Reader, avail yourself of this very well-written, short, and faith-provoking book--you will be glad when you do. – Sharon I. Rideout, Christian Book Previews.com
If you feel empty and your faith has run dry, don’t panic…you’re not alone! Some of the greatest heroes of the Bible had the same experience. They saw their faith dwindle down to almost nothing. They found themselves questioning beliefs that once seemed unshakeable.
The great news is that God gives free refills. The same Jesus who spoke with the sinful woman at the well, restored faith by walking on water, calmed his disciples’ fears during a storm, demonstrated love by washing dirty feet, and forgave one caught in adultery is ready to meet you today. And when you bring your cup back to him, he’s more than able to top it off.
Free Refill provides inspirational and practical help for anyone whose faith is spent, and – like those who encountered Jesus in His day – in need of the refreshment only Jesus can provide.
