Daryl Wingerd over at Christian Communicators Worldwide (CCW) has a review of Osteen’s new book. CCW is a ministry of Jim Elliff who I met last year at a FIRE conference and chatted with at one of the book tables. Great guy and great material from this ministry. I recommend getting their periodic emails about the new material as it comes available.
Below is the first paragraph from the article linked in the title line above.
It may seem foolish to disagree theologically with the man who pastors the largest congregation in America. Thirty-thousand adults attend Joel Osteen’s church every Sunday. Millions more tune in to his national and international television broadcasts. Certainly (one might assume) a man with this incredible following must be on the right track. Joel Osteen’s book, Your Best Life Now, is even endorsed by well-known Christian leaders like Max Lucado and Pat Robertson. And if that were not enough to dissuade me from taking issue with Osteen’s teaching, who in his right mind would want to argue with karate-man Chuck Norris, who also commends Osteen’s book?
