Publisher's Summary

Do you believe it's possible to be happier than you have ever been before? Not for fleeting moments but consistently? Best-selling author Matthew Kelly believes it is possible - and in his latest audiobook, The Biggest Lie, he explains how. 

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 affect that change than Christians. We have an incredible opportunity to dispel the lies and cut through the confusion and false promises around us.

This audiobook 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.

Holiness is within reach for all of us

sometimes we think Holiness is only for the clergy. The author makes a simple but compelling argument that Holiness is for us. I let a lot of the world prevent me from being transformed into the best person I can be. This book has helped me get back on track and seek the Lord in the new way.

Thank you!

"The world should be a better place because you were here... (and it begins with those small but important everyday holy moments)." At a time when I've been lost for so long, God spoke to me through this book, from beginning to end. Thank you ❤

Inspiring thought. Uninspiring follow through.

The “biggest lie” is not answered by random acts of kindness. Also, your semi-pelagianism is showing.

Great Book

Enjoyed the entire book, but really got into it around chapter 6. Will keep in my library to reread bookmarked parts to keep myself accountable.
