I thought the book was incredible and I am discouraged by the folks who think that it is God's plan to have us live unhappy, unmotivated lives. We all know that we are here to glorify him and living our best life now is a way to do that. Who wants to be around someone that is moping and unhappy and thinks that God would have us down here miserable......I am certain that is not the way to spread the word... as we are called to do.... My glass is half full

Too bad Job didn't read this book. He'd have had such a better life! Beloved, God ALLOWS us to go through trying times which include loss, poverty, and pain, that we may better know to rely on Him for our every need. To lean not on our own understanding or 'positive thoughts,' but to acknowledge Him in ALL our ways. God is not only love. He is angry with sin and with sinners. Joel preaches a half God who is only love. Not until we understand this can we know Him aright and love him fully. Why preach the good news if there is no bad news? Why must we be saved if there is nothing to be saved from? Joel plays on emotion, self-relaince, and tickles the ears. This book is unbiblical, albeit feel-good. Christianity is not always feel-good. Read your Bible. Start with Job.

Well, if you call yourself a chrisitan, you should read each book or listen to each pastor, lecturer, etc. with the bible in one hand. Read the Gospels, did Jesus paint a flowery path? A bed of roses? He said 'The road is narrow...' and 'Take up your cross DAILY.' Am I bashing this book or author? Nope. I just think if your looking for self-help, great, this would be a good book. If your a christian and think this should be required reading for christians...I would suggest another book first...The Bible.

This is what I call an excellent book !! It is very life changing and up lifting. It teaches you to move on, let go of the past, things will come your way, it motivates you to become a happier person. I recommend this book to people who are always down, depressed, mad, sad, angry at the world. This book changed the way I think about life, and I am a happier person now for reading this book. I thank Joel Osteen for making me a better person and to realize that you should always be happy !!.

Joel Osteen reminds me that I can have righteous anger. God warns us again people who distort his message for other purposes than it is actually intended. Osteen is the prime example of manipulating God's words for human gain. He speaks in the guise of a Christian leader, and nothing could be more upsetting to me. He does not preach of Christ's love, but of what Christ can do for us. It should be the opposite - because we live to glorify Him, not the other way around. It hurts me to see someone abusing God's message. Living our best life now is a far cry from what Jesus says and what He said during His time on earth. Jesus said to give our lives to Him, because they are truly His. If he made our lives easy, He wouldn't love us. I hope that Osteen will open His eyes to this because he has so much potential as a leader and speaker to actually share the truth. It just really saddens me to see God's word of truth... misrepresented by a person whose words so many believe. I speak not from the eyes of superiority, but from the heart of one who knows God calls us to call each other out in our wrongs.

I feel Joel has it mixed up. God will grant us a kingdom, after death. Our purpose on Earth is to worship and follow the Lord, not to focus on wants.

If you are a Christian, I advise you to stay away from this book. It is dangerous. Its message is not one of seeking Jesus and the will of God. It is about making me happy and how I can prosper. I believe the Lord Jesus does want us to live abundant lives, but He did say that life following him would NOT be easy. He said we'd have to depend on him for everything. Faith is how we get through life, not through '7 Steps to Living at Your Full Potential'. I believe this is a very dangerous book, and I hope other Christians will speak out as well. Turn to the Bible for guidance in how to live your life. But beware, in the Bible, there's the sad tale of Job (who followed God and was still cursed), and of those in Hebrews 11 who believed and never received what they believed fact they were persecuted and killed for their beliefs. Please don't read Osteen's book. PLEASE DON'T!!

Joel Osteen has been gifted with the insight into human weakness. He shows anyone willing to be open minded tools to navigate the rough seas of life and yet live "Your Best Life". He does not teach pie in the sky intangible things. No if one is interested, he does teach us how to feel good about ourselves and other... is that so wrong? We need to hear and have references to refer to as need that we are loved, special and meant to have a good life...Jeremiah 29:11

I never knew, reading Joel's book would put me in the frame of mind, that i am now in. When i started to read it, i would try to read one chapter at a time. The book was so interesting that i read chapter after chapter. I could barely put it down when i picked it up. I've recommended it to everyone i know. It has helped me in ways no one could ever imagine. I just want to personally thank you Joel. I am getting ready to purchase your new book now. I watch you on T.V. all the time. We get the daily inspirations at work each and everyday, and we make sure we forward them all around our company to many of our friends. Again, thanks so much for writing this book, and i can't wait to get started on your new one. Della Price

I watch Joel every Sunday and he's keen on how your demeanor affects everything else around you. Being positive won't keep bad things from happening to you, but it will ensure that you survive and perhaps surmount them. I've been homeless and hungry before myself. My wife wound up homeless and hungry after a 13-year abusive relationship way back when She went to her minister for help and he sent her away. She spent a week sleeping in an alley. The local barber let her sweep his floor for a paycheck and an old lady let her sleep on her couch. I met her a year later and we've been married a couple years now. Joel's ideas are sound. Rather than preach that man's suffering is God's wrath and write them off- he urges people to help themselves or those who are suffering.

This man doesn't understand our role under God at all. To think our insistants of something be done will influence God's will is ridiculous.

After studying the Bible carefully and praying we will see that Joel Osteen does not teach the same as JESUS Christ. There are many good books written by godly men and women who do not make an appeal on your money or make distorted promises. Study the Bible and ask the Lord for discernment. Go to the Lord when you have a need. His guidance is different and 100% trustworthy. I would like to delete Osteen's book from my nook, how can I do this?

Joel Osteen is a hoax. Please do yourself a favor, read the bible. "Do not love the world, neither the things that are in it, for whoever loves the world does not have the love of The Father in him." - 1 John 2:15

This is an awful book. Joel Osteen spends so much time talking about how Christianity can help you get everything you "want," he misses the entire point of Christ and Christianity. God gives you what you need, and what you need the most is His all-powerful love and forgiveness. Your earthly success in this life--material, mental, social, etc--has very little to do with God's view of yourself.

If there ever was a man that made you feel good about being alive, it's Joel Osteen. This book is just an extension of that good feeling. I love this man. I'd also recommend that you buy "When God Stopped Keeping Score," an intimate look at the power of God and forgiveness. It's on sale here on BN. It too will change your life.

I don't think my words can do this book justice. All I can say is that it will open your eyes to so many things. I'd also like to suggest "When God Stopped Keeping Score," an intimate look at the power of forgiveness and yet, it's about so much more. I loved every minute of it. Given the chance, it too will change your life.

This book remains one of the best gifts you can give for anyone who loves to read. Birthdays. Christmas. Father's Day. Mother's Day. Just because. I also recommend "When God Stopped Keeping Score" that takes a revealing look at the power of forgiveness. If you have ever been bound by anger, guilt, hurt or pain, this book is for you.

I read Mr. Osteen's book and let me tell you this man is a motivator. Plain and simple. God is a powerful motivator also. I read samuel's rating and it proves what was proven when Jesus walked the earth. NO matter how obvious the message, some will miss it. Some will doubt their creator. And to ask how aquatic life was supported when the world was covered with water? Are you simple? Samuel its never too late to be saved. Its never too late to accept the Lord, he is all forgiving. And dinosaurs existed 65 million years before Genesis. Hmmm think it over before you let satan speak for you. Anyways this is about Mr. Osteen and his powerful messages. Pick up this book, read it cover to cover. Follow and watch the beautiful things that begin to happen in your life when you accept god, accept Jesus as the messiah. Speak it with your mouth, and your heart and you will be saved. Amen. Thanks Joel.

I was very disappointed with this book, it is just a bunch of Christian propaganda. I am a Christian and I could not believe the way he misinterprets scripture to fit his way of thinking.

this book fell completely short of my expectations. it lacks any validity, and is ridiculously repetitive. if materialism and superficiality is what you're after, this is the book for you!
Guest More than 1 year ago
I was pretty skeptical about this book, as I knew that the last thing I wanted to here was some evangelist telling me to embrace Jesus. There was a bit of that, but this book goes far beyond that and gives you real world steps to living a better life. The tips that Joel lays out are brilliant, easy to follow, and really do work. I would recommend this book to anyone that is wondering when their prayers will be answered, or have been thrown off course.

According to this book, God can help you: get discounts off store merchandise, get random inheritance checks in the mail, take items onto a plane as carry-on that should be checked as luggage, win lawsuits, buy large houses and many more 'favors' too ridiculous and numerous to mention 3500 characters. Like many others, I was interested in this book after listening to some of his audio sermons and TV appearances. Even despite its many shortcomings, I'm glad I read this book because it exposes Osteen for the false preacher that he is. The God presented in this book is materialistic, with a core focus is on what you can 'receive' as opposed to what you can 'give' others. Some of the self-help advice is actually quite good, but to label this book as "Christianity" is downright dangerous if not blasphemous.
