This book is like a self help book for Christians. Joel Osteen of Lakewood Church has an infectious positive attitude that makes you want to just get up and believe you can do anything...with the Lord's help. It'll make you want to rise up out of any terrible or bad situation and start thinking about getting out of it and seeing yourself having victory over those problems in your life. This is a powerful picker-upper.
Very good book. Both in his sermons and his books Mr. Osteen is a positive and informative guide to god's word. He breaks down the scripture with an ease that is truly a gift. A must read for anyone who is in need of a spirtual "road map" to enriching their life and living the life God has promised.

This book does not match my conservitive theology at all. I find him showing people how to pray for money and riches. He tells one story of how his wife desired to live in a big fancy house. I thought we should aspire to live in our father "big house" in heaven.
I had listened to a lot of Joel on TV and had ordered a few CDs off the website. The book goes right along with Joel's style. I found a lot of "repeat" in the book, from what I had already heard in the sermons, but the book was still inspiring and awesome. I keep a copy of this and "Become a Better You" at work to turn to when I'm having a crappy day.
