A Review of Joel Osteen's Your Best Life Now

See this interesting review of Joel Osteen's book Your Best Life Now by Greg Gilbert. Greg starts his review by saying "Someone might legitimately raise the question why we are reviewing this book. After all, the pattern here at 9Marks has been that we review Christian books. I suppose we must be branching out now, because Joel Osteen’s Your Best Life Now is decidedly not one of those. Open the book to any random page, and you will likely find some mention of God or even a reference to Scripture. Yet that is just window-dressing. When you wring the book out, what you end up with is nothing more than the soggy old self-help pop-psychology that people have been lapping up for a generation—with the word "God" thrown in every once in a while for good measure." Interesting reading! See the full review article here.
