The Greatest Moment delivers a message right from the heart of God with compassion and clarity. It will capture your attention and spark the awakening your soul is longing for.

“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.

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

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.”

“Could not put it down! The Greatest Moment: God’s Greatest Hour, Heaven’s Highest Call, and Your Moment of Destiny is like reading a delightfully guided tour of the Bible with a tour guide who deeply cares for your eternal well being and soul destination.

The Bible characters take on personality and the author leaves the reader feeling like you really know them. . . .” (to read the rest of Patricia’s review, click on Amazon at http://amzn.to/1WNxHUm).
Vicky R. says, “I enjoyed reading THE GREATEST MOMENT. This book is definitely inspirational; in fact, I purchased five more copies to give out to friends. I particularly liked the progression of ‘greatest moments’ that led to the greatest moment of all. The author’s stories and word pictures, which are placed throughout the book, added to the scriptural content, making it personal and relatable. My husband, David, who also read the book, concurs. We recommend that you read Dr. Harrel’s book.”
Christopher C. writes, “The title of this book was fascinating. Figured I would give it a read and see what it was all about. The author, Dr. Charles Earl Harrel, has taken an interesting concept of questioning what is God’s greatest moment in history, into a book that has taken this concept beyond our thinking to discovering how and why this pertains to our lives. Dr. Harrel gives great word pictures into understanding this idea in great detail which has led me to a deeper understanding of how profound God truly is. This is a great read—a fun and captivating book. I highly recommend it!”

Rev. Ruth B. writes, “I’ve known Pastor Charles Harrel for 36 yrs. When I heard he had written a book, I knew it would be good, so I bought three copies (one for myself, the others for friends). THE GREATEST MOMENT has exceeded my expectations. After reading two chapters, I decided to read only one chapter per day because it is so rich and full of Scriptures. I was so blessed. I intend to read it again.”
Pastor Skip W. writes, “This book reveals insights into the Word that stir our thinking. A great help for leading a Sunday school class or home Bible study.
