"Try Joel's advice for 30 days"
I enjoyed this book much more than his first book. I recommend this book to everyone and after listening to it, try his suggestions for at least thirty days and I would be shocked if you did not notice a difference in your life.
Joel outlines many different steps and supports them with Biblical based examples as well as examples from his own life.
It is well worth the money and time invested in listening to the book.
"Great Inspirational book"
Great work from Joel. I really enjoy his weekly podcasts and now his book. It really gives you a different pespective of life.
This is an excellent book for anyone wanting to gain perspective on their life - where they came from, where they are now and why they can create a better life and self. I am not a particularly religious person but Mr. Osteen uses passages and messages from the bible in a way that is still effective for non-Christians and Christians alike.
The message is very clear. It is up to each of us to create the life we want and it starts with our belief that we can do something about it.
I recommend this book highly. It is particularly effective on tape. He is an excellent orator. Perfect to start the new year.
"Simple but Profound"
Where did this guy come from? He has a grasp of what Jesus meant, far better than I have ever heard before, and he has a clear understanding that Jesus came to unite us with the Creator. His sense of our relationship to the Creator -- or "the universe" as it is called in "the secret"-- is profound. There is no way a person can do what he says and not end up a better person for it. I know, because I am. Eleanor, it's not always "deep." Sometimes, it's as simple as the nose on your face. Joel says it as well or better than Deprak or Dyer, both of whom I admire very much.
"A Book of Life Long Wisdom"
Every well done, plain, simplea and easy to follow. I love the quotes and the golden nuggest from earned wisdom.
This audio book is awesome...I love Joel Osteen and to be able to hear him read his book is great. I take my MP3 player everywhere and listen to Joel all the time.
"the positive side of God's word"
To many times we are taught the negative shoulds or oughts of God's word. Joel Osteen teaches the positive side of the Bible. A view that will make a person glad to know the word of God.
"Positive and affirming"
This book is filled with ways to improve your day to day life by becoming accountable for who you are and how you interact with people. It also reminds you to affirm your own self worth. The ideas aren't revolutionary, just relevant and straight forward. It is a positive and thoughtful book.
I enjoyed the practical, realistic examples that Joel used in supporting his points. The quality and narration is good and the points he discussed are easy to relate to. This is a good audio to listen to when you need a refresher in the basics of life and self-development.
"Better when read by author."
The Purpose Driven Life. Each book tells how you can strengthen your soul and spirit becoming closer to God in step-by-step fashion.
