“Fall in love with God”
Calvin Tadema writes, “If you haven’t read through the Bible, The Greatest Moment will whet your appetite. If you have, this book will spark your memory with new and creative insights. The message of the book treats the Scripture as an old friend, revealing a continuity that comes from a deep relationship by the author.”

The Greatest Moment “speaks to those who know their Bible and those who do not.”
Stanley C. Baldwin writes, “I must confess I began reading this book with more than a little skepticism, simply because I am so jaded with superlative claims for practically everything in the marketplace, whether institutions, products, services, or books. All of them are the ‘greatest.’ As I began reading The Greatest Moment, I soon discovered that some claims of great, greater, and greatest are both legitimate and important. Jesus himself spoke of greatest commandments, prophets, acts, and attitudes.
Once past my initial skepticism, I found a writing style that intrigued and impressed me, including some personal revelations that spoke of honesty in the author. I liked the examples where he showed his humanity, not just his theological training. I laughed when he confessed that his attempt to liken the Trinity to ice, water, and steam didn’t really work, even for him.
My second misgiving arose when I perceived he was essentially presenting an overview of the whole Bible. ‘This could be quite helpful,’ I thought, ‘for biblical illiterates.’ Seasoned pastor/teacher types like me already knew all that stuff. However, the more I read, the more I realized I was benefitting from his informed retelling of events from a fresh perspective. I therefore recommend this book to adults, regardless of their minimal or advanced knowledge of the Bible.”
Stanley Baldwin has authored 24 books, including 4 best-sellers.
Sometimes, a short review speaks volumes:
Pastor Steve Berry writes, “I strongly endorse this great book!”
Last year, we visited Alston’s Corner Assembly of God. Pastor Steve allowed us to share about The Greatest Moment, give out a few copies, and set up a book table in the foyer.
Twenty (20) books were released into the hands of harvesters.
Thank you Pastor SteveandJoyce Berry. Thank you Alston’s Corner Assembly of God Church.
“As an editor of Christian publications, I have worked with Charles Earl Harrel for many years, receiving his written words in devotional materials. He writes from the heart and always makes it plain how readers can apply the Word of God in everyday life. I highly recommend this author to the Christian community at large!”

Angela G. writes, “If you are looking for a great book, filled with biblical truth, one that you will not be able to put down, then I think you’ll enjoy reading THE GREATEST MOMENT by Dr. Harrel.
This book is perfect for personal read, devotions, personal study, group bible study, and more. It covers many different issues and great moments of the Bible. It brings you to a moment of divine appointment and revelation for the greatest moment in your life—a revelation of who you are in God—and who God is in you. The book will make you think! It will challenge you! It will change you! This is an inspirational book you won’t regret reading.”
Jerry Cooney writes, “For those seeking to know God better and to love Him more, I encourage you to read and meditate on the wonders of God Word that are shown so masterfully in Dr. Harrel’s new book, The Greatest Moment. I believe that you will enjoy and benefit from the marvelous insights the Lord has given him.”

Nita H. writes, “THE GREATEST MOMENT draws on wisdom inspired from Scriptures to offer a biblically-based primer on the greatest messages in the Bible, deftly laying the groundwork that ultimately reveals the greatest message of all.
The author’s engaging style of writing offers personal perspectives based on true-life experiences and evocative interpretations of biblical events that lead readers down a path of discovery and spiritual growth. It is a must-read book on salvation by grace through faith for those thirsting for knowledge about eternity and seeking guidance on living a life pleasing to God.”

WAITING ON THE PROMISES
Ghana, Africa, receives The Greatest Moment after 7 months of waiting. I had assumed the books I sent were long-lost in the mail or stolen. But Priscilla never gave up hope.
She writes, “I believed that the next time I will be messaging you, it will be Good News! And yes today, I come with great news. The books you sent to me last Christmas has now got to me. I believed I was going to receive them no matter how long it takes, and finally I have them! This is indeed a miracle!”
Missy H. writes. “While faith-based Christian literature and commentary are not typical genres I follow, this book’s clever narrative style draws and engages the reader, regardless of genre or classification.
Situating the reader with conversational ease, the author uniquely alternates from autobiographical shorts to close reads of his primary text. Providing reenactments of biblical verses in engaging prose, he transforms commentary into something vivid and experiential for the reader. Reading is much like attending a play and watching a colorful scene unfold.
5-stars for the sharp writing (often laced with humor at just the right times), but also for the eloquent style that deftly braids story, autobiography, and commentary into one cohesive narrative.
There’s much to be gleaned from the writing strategy itself for those interested, and certainly the messages and questions of The Greatest Moment itself will resonate with many across Christian tradition.”
More and more people inspired and encouraged by reading THE GREATEST MOMENT

Susan T. Osborn writes, “What is the greatest moment in the Bible? What event warrants this title? Dr. Harrel has woven Scripture upon Scripture, to lead us to the answer to this question. In the process, we will grow to understand our purpose and develop a greater passion for our God.”

Carol writes, “Charles Earl Harrel is a man of passion in all he does. He shines at unfolding the majesty of God piece by piece until revelation of truth emerges.”

Carol Robeson attended my church, supported me as a pastor and author, encouraged my writing, and was able to read my inspirational book, THE GREATEST MOMENT, before she left for heaven. Thank you, Carol!
Teresa P. writes, “THE GREATEST MOMENT is a gold mine of scriptural truth. It captures your attention from the moment you begin to read, drawing you with anticipation toward the great reveal. You will walk away from this book wanting to do more, be more, and speak more. It skillfully compels you to make the upward call of Christ your highest pursuit.”
Donna S. writes, “I read THE GREATEST MOMENT very slowly, trying to study and take in all the layers that were presented, each building on the other. It is thoughtful, insightful, and so informative as Dr. Harrel explains how it all leads up to our “Greatest Moment.”
“I recommend this book for both new Christians as well as those of us who continue to study to deepen our faith. Now I am going to reread it again!”
Comments from Kim: “As a Christian bookstore manager, I knew that Dr. Harrel’s book, THE GREATEST MOMENT, had recently published. I could hardly wait to get my hands on a copy. I immediately flipped to the chapter on ‘the greatest moment of all’ and read that first. I was not disappointed! Then I read the rest the book. It’s everything I expected—and even more so. I purchased three more copies for friends and family.”
Don writes, “I find the book, THE GREATEST MOMENT, to be very interesting. It brought out a lot of things I didn’t realize were even in the Bible. It challenged me and helped me through a rough time of my life. I particularly liked the last chapter, ‘The Greatest Work,’ which features a story and teaching about how to actually believe. An inspiring read that I highly recommend.”
Laura writes, “For over 15 years, I have enjoyed anthologies and articles written by this author. His new inspirational book, THE GREATEST MOMENT, captured my interest again. I liked the author’s real-life experiences, mingled with descriptive word pictures. They were not only captivating; some were quite humorous. Vivid portrayals of biblical events come alive and convey relevance in today’s world. I highly recommend Dr. Harrel’s book for individuals desiring a deeper understanding of God’s heart and for those longing to know what lies ahead in eternity.”
Laura is reading The Greatest Moment during her devotional quiet time.
