About the Author

Joel Osteen is the senior pastor of Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas.
Listed by several sources as America's largest and fastest-growing congregation, Lakewood Church has approximately 45,000 attendees every week. Millions more watch Joel's messages as they are broadcast on national and international television networks. Additionally, he is the author of numerous journals, devotionals, and #1 best-selling books. He resides in Houston with his wife, Victoria, and their children. Visit him at www.joelosteen.com.

From AudioFile

With crisp diction and a melodious baritone, Joel Osteen delivers 10 of his most popular sermons, recorded live at Lakewood Church. Adding touches of humor, he combines personal examples with scripture to communicate feel-good biblical counsel. He begins sermons with the words, "This is my Bible. I am what it says�Ķ" The talks include audience participation and end with a brief salvation message and altar call. Comparing humans to computers, Osteen says that human software is contaminated by the enemy--Satan--who promotes bondage and negativity. With a seamless narration Osteen explains how to reprogram one's mind through scripture and visualization techniques. Positive thinking, he believes, produces constructive attitudes and behavior and the courage to be different. G.D.W. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine

More About the Author

Joel Osteen is a native Texan and the Pastor of Lakewood Church, which according to Church Growth Today is America's largest and fastest growing church with over 38,000 attendees. On July 16, 2005 after completing $95 million dollars in renovations, Joel moved Lakewood Church into its new 16,000 seat home -- the former Compaq Center which is now the largest regularly-used worship center in the United States. According to Nielsen Media Research, Joel is the most watched inspirational figure in America. His weekly sermon is broadcast into television markets across the U.S. where it is viewed by seven million Americans each week and more than 20 million each month. His weekly broadcast is also seen in almost 100 nations around the world. In 2004 his first book, Your Best Life Now was released by Time Warner debuting at the top of the New York Times Bestsellers List and quickly rising to #1. It remained on the New York Times Bestseller for more than 2 years and has sold more than 4 million copies. Most recently, Joel was named as one of Barbara Walters' "10 Most Fascinating People of 2006" and he was selected as the "Most Influential Christian in 2006" by the readers of Church Report Magazine. The son of John Osteen -- a highly respected minister of the Gospel and the founder of Lakewood Church -- Joel attended Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, Oklahoma where he studied radio and television communications. In 1982, Joel returned to Houston and founded Lakewood's television ministry where he produced John Osteen's televised sermons for 17 years until January 1999 when his father passed away. For many years John Osteen encouraged Joel to preach, but he always declined preferring to work behind the scenes. In early 1999, Joel felt compelled to accept his father's invitation and he preached his first sermon on January 17th of that year. Little did anyone know that would be the last Sunday of John Osteen's life. Two weeks later Joel began preaching and later that year was installed as the new Senior Pastor of Lakewood Church. Almost immediately, weekly attendance began to grow at an extraordinary rate and, in 2005 Joel moved Lakewood Church into its present location, the former Compaq Center, a 16,000 seat arena that was once home to the Houston Rockets professional basketball team. Now, with his wife Victoria and the leadership staff of Lakewood, this innovative church is poised for the new millennium. Joel's extraordinary success can be found in his core message: That our God is a good God who desires to bless those who are obedient and faithful to Him through Jesus Christ. It is Joel's deepest desire that his own life be an example of that principle and that everyone who hears this message of hope and encouragement would choose to accept God's goodness and mercy and to become all that God wants them to be.

Joel is just the greatest! I started watching him on Sundays about a year ago and now I can't miss him. He is such a genuine person and you can just tell that everything he speaks comes right from the heart. I truly believe he was put here to better everyone's lives. I can tell you from experience that his principles work! I had an investment property that was really doing damage tomy life and I was unhappy in my job. I paid attention to his priciples and became closer to God, next thing you know, the house sold and I got a job closer to home, making more money and doing something I really love to do! I really contribute this to Joel. Just listen, open up your mind and follow his principles and you'll see changes in your life, all for the better. You'll find yourself getting chills often which I believe is the presence of God in your life.

Enjoyed the CD set, Osteen is playful, fun, speaker, adds a touch of metaphysics, and offers lots of basic living sense. Every sermon offers gentle practical reminders about how to be the best you can be.

My husband recently passed away and listening to Good, Better, Blessed has been a God send. Comforting me and helping me clearly understand that God is in control.
Joel Osteen did return Purpose, Power, and Passion back to my life and listening to the CD inspires me daily.

I'm not a fan of organized religion and certainly not televangilists, but, like so many, I find Joel Osteen's sermons to be very uplifting, inspiring, and positive. I would say that Joel Osteen leans more toward an inspirational speaker than a preacher. I bought the CD set to listen to in the car. Joel opens every sermon with a funny story. I have to admit, the opening stories/jokes are pretty good. However, at the heart of every sermon is a positive message reminding people that each of us is a gift and we all have a reason for being in this life. No matter how dark your life becomes or seems to be, there is always a light waiting to help and guide you. I have always believed that none of us is ever truly alone; not really. Joel's sermons will remind you to connect with God every day and to believe in and visualize what you want your life to be. Our soul's remember why we are here. We just need to slow down and really listen. I highly recommend this CD set for anyone who is open to a positive message.
