Publisher's Description

Is the grass really greener on the other side?
 
… Or is this the ultimate illusion? 
 
The first man and woman were closer to God than any other creature
on Earth. They had everything they could have ever wanted: healthy
timeless bodies, an endless supply of food and water, and a beautiful
garden in which to live and play. Still, they reached for the mirage of MORE.
 

What is the great illusion that each of us falls prey to in life? More. More money = more contentment. More things = more satisfaction. More success = more happiness.
 
Like Adam and Eve, we still eat the forbidden fruit today. We are tricked into thinking that the One Thing that does offer lasting joy, purpose and contentment is not enough. As a result, the very things we pursue always remain out of reach because we bought into the ultimate illusion.
 
Join Master Illusionist Harris III on an unforgettable journey, as he shows you how to:
 
  •     Expose the lies you have been believing and replace them with life-changing Truth
  •     Unmask the mirage of “more” and discover the secrets to joy and contentment
  •     Stop allowing the deceiver to prevent you from living your life to its fullest 
 
Open your eyes, discover the source of true fulfillment, and never fall for the Illusion of More again!

    A master illusionist shows you what is behind the illusion: the illusion of wanting more, and the mistake that it will make you happy. What a great analogy to how sin works to deceive us into believing the grass is greener on the other side. This short but in-depth book will open your eyes to what the world is trying to deceive us into believing: that more money, more clothes, bigger house, etc, will make you happy. This is full of biblical examples of how Satan give us illusions of happiness only to end in sorrow. Each chapter ends with a reflections question area to dig deeper and help you find the truth. This is wonderfully written for anyone in todays world. The author encourages us with verses and truths as to how to overcome the disillusion of illusion. It ends with a wonderful summary of an overview to wrap it all up and tie it all together. I highly recommend this for churches and bible studies!

    I received this book for an honest review.

    The Illusion of More is a small book that packs a punch. It definitely makes you think. The author goes all the way back to the story of Adam and Eve to explain the desire for more. Through the use of Bible verses and examples, he explains how Satan will use deception to our disadvantage. I definitely recommend reading this book!

    I received this book from the Book Club Network in exchange for my honest opinion.

    From the time of Adam and Eve, through today, people have always desired more than what they are given by God. In "The Illusion of More: The Trick to Finding Faith in a World of Deception" Harris III explores this desire that we have to for the unattainable, and quite often, the unneeded.

    Through the use of Bible stories and verses demonstrates Satan role in this and how it was Satan's downfall in the first place. Each chapter ends with reflection questions to see how the lessons within fit each person's live and the paths we can take to avoid Satan in our lives and, instead, invite God in us.

    Always wanting more seems to be the new American dream. Dissatisfaction with life is the antithesis of the contentment that the Bible teaches. The fear that we will be separated from whatever it is we are beholding is a symptom of believing the lie of the Enemy. In The Illusion of More, Harris III teaches that the Enemy has only one trick, one illusion that has worked for thousands of years and continues to be effective. The problem is that the deception is just that, a deception.

    Through his lie he speaks through fear and Satan creates the illusion that we are about to miss out on something. Faith is the opposite of fear because it requires believing before seeing. "We should all know by now that Lucifer only has one trick in his magic show. He simply dangles before us the very thing we want or need at the moment we need or want it most. It is a simple trick, which he has used on mortal man for generations (pg. 71)."

    Through stories about Job, Esau, Jacob, Adam, Eve -- Harris III shows how man over and over again fell into the Enemy's trap by believing the illusion of fear. In the book, Harris III states, "Fear is such a misuse of imagination. The things we fear really do have a way of making the imaginable tangible. And Lucifer's misdirection is the only sleight of hand he needs to make it happen; for we mortals are always reaching for the illusion of more or clinging in fear to the things we value most (pg. 48)."

    Though not a lengthy book, The Illusion of More packs a powerful punch. Harris III states in the book, "Whatever you value most is not only where your heart resides, it is also where your fear lives. And where fear takes root, deception flowers (pg. 109)."

    Jesus has given us the example of how to handle the deceiving illusionist known as Satan. "Unlike Satan, who cannot create anything but illusion and confusion, we possess the creative power to speak "Light!" to the surrounding dark_and even "Life!" when the likelihood is dim (pg. 74)". In one of the most creative ways I've heard described, Harris III says that God used immunization to prevent and heal man from sin, that is immunization through the blood of Jesus. Harris III says, "Remember it this way - if you make believe you're just pretending. But if you believe then make - you're creating (pg. 107)".

    One of the most powerful statements he makes is "When spoken as lies, words can devastate. They can make the imaginable terrible. They can manipulate you to sink your teeth into the forbidden and even dupe you into trading your future for a bowl of regret (pg. 113)".

    Intrigued to know more? Well then, you must read The Illusion of More by Harris III.
