Do you believe it's possible to be happier than you have ever been before? Not for fleeting moments, but consistently? We all want to be happy and live life to the fullest, but the answer isn't found in the world's definition of happiness. Modern culture is constantly feeding us lies, and these lies affect you more than you know. The lies that affect you the most, however, are the ones you tell yourself. These lies steal your joy, sap your energy, and cause you to lose hope. They prevent you from discovering the kind of vibrant faith the first Christians experienced. But as Kelly shows, we've arrived at a crucial moment in history. People are disillusioned with what the world offers. The world is in desperate need of change, and no one is in a better position to effect that change than Christians. We have an incredible opportunity to dispel the lies and cut through the confusion and false promises around us. Together we can change the course of history--with humility, generosity, kindness, and joy, one Holy Moment at a time.… (mere)

This is an intriguing book. Where one might expect a very elaborate amplification of the title, what one finds is quite simple. Archimedes said if he could find a large enough lever, he could move the world. Perhaps. Kelly offers an alternative method of moving the world ... Holy Moments, which can be defined as similar to good deeds but of even lesser stature. A gentle zephyr of thinking about God can be a Holy Moment. As a kid, I worked as a soda jerk in my Dad's drug store. An ice cream soda was quite an event requiring a very tall and wide glass into which was placed the chosen syrup flavor or fresh fruit. This was expanded to fill the glass with a spurt of the high-velocity soda water spigot. Ice cream was added, more soda water but at ordinary velocity, whip cream and, perhaps, a cherry. The thing is the high-velocity soda water created a huge amount of bubbles -- something like if you could put Holy Moments in a glass that is what it would look like.
But, of course, you don't put Holy Moments in a glass. I believe the current Covid pandemic is producing Holy Moments in each of us like nothing before. ( )

A fast read with a big message: small acts of kindness and humility can change the world. If you are religious, pray to God for transformation. Kelly refers to these acts of kindness as holiness. But I think it is equally powerful if you are not a believer; either way, don't be a jerk! ( )

The Biggest Lie, Kelly explains how to be happy and live life to the fullest, This book provides the practical tools necessary to help you regain your fervor and leave your mark on the world "and experience more happiness than you thought possible. Together we can change the course of history "with humility, generosity, kindness, and joy, one Holy Moment at a time.

This book has an amazing message and is a truly wonderful call to action. The message and content is deserving of 5 stars, however, the writing style was so repetitive that it made it more difficult to read than it should have been. ( )
