Book Study: The Biggest Lie in the History of Christianity
This Christmas St. Bonaventure Parish is giving you the opportunity to increase your Joy and Peace with a special gift. The book The Biggest Lie in the History of Christianity by New York Times best-selling author Matthew Kelly will be given to every family at all Christmas Masses.
Do you believe it's possible to be happier than you have ever been before? Not for fleeting moments, but consistently? Bestselling author Matthew Kelly believes it is possible--and in his latest book, 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 effect that change than Christians. We have an incredible opportunity to dispel the lies and cut through the confusion and false promises around us.
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.
