This article in The Christian Century, which was pointed out to me by Jamie Smith is excellent. I had wondered about what Joel Osteen was really about and, while it is usually wrong to base one's opinion on the what others say rather than going directly to the source, Jason Byassee peppers his review with quotes and seems to be even handed in his assessment of Osteen's book.
Have any of my readers read this book? Is Byassee accurate?
