Product 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!

HASH(0x9d99b420) out of 5 stars The grass is greener where you water it April 15 2014
By Brian Reaves - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Harris III does an incredible job here of presenting a simple truth in a powerful way. At what point do we have enough? When do we have enough money, or time, or possessions, or success? Is there any place where we will sit back and say we are happy?

Harkening back to the fact that Adam and Eve--who had a garden created for them by God Himself--were not satisfied with what they were given, but wanted more, Harris shows us that we as human beings get caught up in the illusion that more is better. We fall victim to the belief that true happiness comes from that thing that is just out of our reach. But even after grabbing more, gaining more, or climbing higher, there is always that hole inside that craves what it does not have. It is an inherent greed that can only be satisfied when we realize how blessed we are with the things we have and with the love and relationship we can have with our Creator.

This book is a short read, but it's powerful. It's perfectly suited for any church small group discussion. The message is for teens to adults, as the illusion of more is pushed upon everyone through social media, television, and peers. It won't take you long to read this, yet the message will hopefully linger well after you have put the book away.

HASH(0x9dc54924) out of 5 stars Satan's Magic Tricks of Fear June 12 2014
By Conny - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Title: The Illusion of More
Author: Harris III with Barton Green
Publisher: Destiny Image
ISBN: 978-0-768400404-3

“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,” Harris III warns in his book, "The Illusion of More: The Trick to Finding Faith in a World of Deception."

This two hundred and eight page paperback targets those interested in a Biblical perspective of living life free of fear or separation from God. Mainly the New International Version of the Bible is used, along with the NKJV and KJV. The small book contains six chapters, each ending with two to four questions including spaces fill in answers, an overview, acknowledgments, and both writers’ autobiographies with an advertisement for a two DVD movie set.

Since the author is a professional illusionist, he correlates a magic show to how Satan has deceived many into a world of ongoing and relentless fear. Starting with Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, he uses a plethora of Bible verses showing how the Devil was a fallen angel who wanted to be God. Also noted are Biblical characters like Job, Jacob and Esau, David and Goliath, Jesus, and Peter, along with Norman Vincent Peale and how they dealt with Satan’s deceptions.

Chapters relate to the art of illusion and magic and how mankind is manipulated into trading creative faith for destructive fear that leads to separation from God. We are constantly being deceived by the Devil and misdirected by desiring more of something, someone, or some feeling, when we should be putting our faith solely in Jesus Christ.

The section at the end of each chapter asks readers questions such as what are they afraid of, what do they dread separation from, what losses have been experienced in the past, have they ever been deceived by their senses, what ways have they been blinded by God, and what do they need to believe in, make, and then see.

Because so much of the book involves magic tricks, manipulation, and metaphors, inserting many Biblical stories keeps it on task. The author’s conclusion is that words, used for good or bad, are the keys to making the imaginable tangible as faith or fear.

Thanks to The Book Club Network, Inc. and Destiny Image for furnishing this complimentary book in exchange for a review based on the reader’s opinion.

HASH(0xa4b9e888) out of 5 stars Lucifer’s Tactics, Trickery, and Deception April 27 2014
By Richard R. Blake - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Master illusionist Harris III collaborates with Barton Green in this remarkable story of Lucifer’s illusion that he could become equal with God. He shows how Satan formed the seed thoughts in Eve’s mind of separation, fear, deception, doubt, and the illusion of being satisfied with more.

Harris uses the principles of magic and the art of illusion to demonstrate how easily we are deceived by our perception of the things we think we see. He helps the reader get a new perspective on Satan’s tactic of deception. He helps the reader discover the secret of finding peace and satisfaction through truth, “dispelling all doubt, removing all fear… and the illusion of more.”

Whenever I read a book focusing on spiritual growth, I like to determine the author’s intended take away and then adapt it for personal application. Harris provides a tool for this through the use of reflective questions at the end of each chapter. These profound questions can be soul searching, and life changing. I found the thought provoking summary sentences worthy of reflection, application, and assimilation.

Harris is a gifted story teller. He is articulate, writes with simplicity and clarity, as he uncovers Satan’s fraud to reveal truth. “The Illusion of More” is highly endorsed by recognized Christian ministry leaders

A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review purposes. The opinions expressed are my own.
HASH(0x9e342228) out of 5 stars Seriously thought provoking July 12 2014
By Shai - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
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.

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

By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I love the BIG positive message pulled out of this small package of a book. I would make this a ten star book if I could.

Harris III uses the truth of God's Word to speak into the lies of Satan's deceptions perpetrated upon our earthly world. The author understands thoroughly how deception works because of his performing art. He has a great platform from which to discuss deception and illusion not only in the physical realm but also in the spiritual realm.

So many in our world today are grasping onto and following deceptions presented by Satan and his helpers and foregoing the blessings received through believing in the truth of God's word. People are trying to live out the illusions of the better life, the more exciting life, the all under control of the self life, and even the person as god life. They are living a lie that is exposed by God's Word. They are trading eternal life and the joy found in Christ for the deceitfulness placed before them for the moment. Harris III reaches out to all who are under the influence of Satan's lies and says enough of this evil.

I appreciate the brevity of this message for today's reading population. The presentation is thorough and succinct. I like to donate books to Christian Library International which sends books into the prison system. This would be an ideal book to use for such donation to various ministries that reach out to those who have been captured in the worst ways by the deceitfulness of the world and have broken laws in the hope for "more." This would also be an excellent study for youth groups as a deterrant message that might help the youth to stay out of "more" troubles.

Thanks to bookfun.org and the author for supplying this book to me in exchange for an honest review.I want to see this book in the hands of many who are in need of its relevant message for these times. I think this volume would be excellent paired with The Screwtape Letters which is fictional but covers some of the same ground. That would make for an awesome Bible study.
