Your Best Life Now

Author:Joel Osteen

Houston megachurch pastor and inspirational TV host Osteen offers an overblown and redundant self-help debut. Many Christian readers will undoubtedly be put off by the books shallow name-it-and-claim-it theology; although the first chapter claims that "we serve the God that created the universe," the book as a rule suggests the reverse: it?s a treatise on how to get God to serve the demands of self-centered individuals. Osteen tells readers that God wants them to prosper, offering examples of obtaining an elegant mansion or a larger salary ("don?t ever get satisfied with where you are," he cautions). In seven parts, he details how readers should enlarge their vision, develop self-esteem, discover the power of thought, let go of the past, find strength through adversity, give back to others and choose to be happy. The section on giving comes as too little, too late?Osteen?s message to remember others and "get your mind off yourself" flies in the face of the previous 200 pages. There are some good pockets of advice, such as letting go of past hurts and avoiding bitterness. Editorially, the book would have packed more of a punch if a third of its repetitive slogans and stories had been pruned. Theologically, its materialism and superficial portrayal of God as the granter of earthly wishes will alienate many Christian readers who can imagine a much bigger God.

Give God the Glory-Let Your Light So Shine

Author:Kevin Wayne Johnson

Give God the Glory! Let Your Light So Shine is the third book in this series of nine. A companion to book #2, Called to be Light in the Workplace, this 54-page gift book offers clarity to the Scriptural definition of the word light. Light (phos) means “to give light.” It is that which enables us to see (able to clearly distinguish between right and wrong). It is the intellectual, moral, and spiritual element by which we may see (Matthew 6:23). Jesus Christ is the light of the world (John 1:9) and the ‘children of light’ is a term for true disciples (Luke 16:8 and Ephesians 1:8). God is the source of this light as the sun is the other.

Journey to the Well

Author:Vashti Murphy

In July 2000, Bishop Vashti M. McKenzie crowned a long career as pastor, broadcaster, and community developer with her election to the bishopric of the African Methodist Episcopal Church-the first time ever a woman has been selected. A powerful minister, a poised and attractive woman, a caring community leader, wife and mother, Bishop McKenzie was the subject of a front-page New York Times profile and communicates her message to tens of thousands each year with her electrifying preaching style. Now, in Journey to the Well, she shares her wisdom with Christian women of all denominations, everywhere.

Journey to the Well takes the biblical story of the Samaritan woman who meets Jesus at the well. It breaks down her experience--and the author's own-into twelve lessons through which a woman can empower herself, conquer adversity, and accomplish great things in her life. Each lesson includes Bible quotations, inspirational sayings, activities, and self-exploratory questions to guide the reader in a transforming return to God, self, and community-breaking through racial, gender, cultural, and ethnic barriers to discover a new, enlightened way of thinking and living.
