It is ASHAME that the author could not handle the simple task of writing a book! Where did Young get his information? He must have dreamed it up. So sad to tarnish Joel's good name

I had a chance to get an advance copy of this book, and it's almost hard to believe how poorly written it is. The writer has apparently never met or interviewed Joel, with the exception of a handshake in the church lobby. Young's perspective is unashamedly and uncritically promotional, and he writes with an amateur style. A helpful, critical analysis of Joel Osteen's and Lakewood's influence is definitely in order, but unfortunately this is not the book.

The book lacked objectivity, it was very bias. It doesn't appear that the author even interviewed Mr.Osteen Many known facts about the church were left out The book was very misdirected I understand that this was the first attempt at writing for this author ! Maybe the subject was a bit too much for this first time author to take on

A very skewed view of Joel. I think very highly and have read everything he Joel has written. . .this definitely wasn't something he was involved with. I really don't think the author has ever spoken with Joel.
