GOOD ADVICE BUT HYPOCRITICAL

There is some good positive messages and confidence builders in here. I just DO NOT get the concept of religiously helpful people accumulating large sums of wealth in the name of God. I believe that if we are here on earth for a SHORT amount of time compared to eternity...
There is some good positive messages and confidence builders in here. I just DO NOT get the concept of religiously helpful people accumulating large sums of wealth in the name of God. I believe that if we are here on earth for a SHORT amount of time compared to eternity, the MAIN goal of the faithful should be to turn wealth aside and help others learn how to be happy within themselves WITHOUT money. I think Mr. Osteen has a very determined and positive outlook but make no mistake, he would be better served to helping people learn to be happy with what they have as opposed to teaching them to want more. Some good stuff in here BUT some stuff I disagree with in principle.

    Not Bad

    I think this is generally a good book but not one which will change your life. I enjoyed reading it in the morning as I was taking the bus to work it gave me a lift. However, I'm sorry to say that I am a bit to cynical and set in my ways to buy into everything that Joel Osteen says in the book. I've had many disappointments in my career so to think as Joel does would mean that I should just shrug it off because God has something bigger in store for me. So sorry Joel but at my age that is a little hard to accept. This book would have been much better for me if I had read it when I was younger and more eager. Still, it can teach you some valuable lessons and can help you to become a somewhat better person. I think Joel does accomplish this but he needs to remove his rose-colored glasses.

    Blessings come in many forms

    This book is well written and does clearly describe one category of blessings that God provides. However, by emphasizing this one category it minimizes the fact that God provides each us with a wonderful combination of blessings that is uniquely designed for each individual. And the material portion of this combination is only one aspect that, by God's perfect design, will be smaller for some than for others. So, an excessive focus on this one type of blessing can ultimiately lead to an unfulfilled life.

    Helpful!

    I am a recent fan of Joel Osteen. I first saw him on TV while watching his half hour church service. It was very refreshing and enlightening...I had always thought that he was just some kind of preacher who only quotes the bible (he kinda is) but the messages he gives out really pertained to my life. His book is interesting and makes you think. He gives real life examples of things that have happened in his life and i was able to relate to some of the examples. Very good choice I made!
