But then you clearly have never met Carl Lentz.
As head pastor of the first United States branch of global megachurch Hillsong, the former college basketball player is on a mission to make Christianity accessible in the 21st century. In Own the Moment, he shares the unlikely and inspiring story of how he went from being an average teenager who couldn't care less about church to leading one of the country's fastest-growing congregations - how one day he is trying to convince a Virginia Beach 7-Eleven clerk to attend his service, and just a few years later he is baptizing a global music icon in an NBA player's Manhattan bathtub.
Amid such candid personal tales, Lentz also offers illuminating readings of Bible passages and practical tips on how to live as a person of faith in an increasingly materialistic world. How do you maintain your values - and pass them on to your children - in a society that worships money and sex and fame? How do you embrace your flaws in this Instagram era that exalts the appearance of perfection? How do you forget about "living the dream" and learn to embrace the beauty of your reality?
These are just a few of the many important questions Lentz answers in Own the Moment - a powerful book that redefines not just Christianity but spirituality as a whole.

Many people say a book changed their lives. Usually that is just a nice statement cause a book was very impacting but I can actually say this book changed my life, it helped me find God again after a long time without Him in my life. Thankyou Carl for this, I may never meet you and never get to tell you how much you impacted my life this side of heaven, I will love each moment and be present to enjoy what God has in it.
