A Christian singer and pastor at Joel Osteen's Lakewood Church prays and speaks to people with chronic fears and inhibitions. He says they can follow the word of God "as a bridge to living a life of victory and freedom from fear." The key is for them to be honest about themselves, better understand what they're afraid of, change their thinking, and then behave differently. Witt's stories from the Bible, popular culture, his ministry, and his personal life are sweet and appropriate. Though the segments are nicely framed by transitional music, as well as introductions by a female narrator, the author reads like he's selling widgets. Narration techniques that might work in a 25-minute sermon don't work in this six-hour audio. T.W. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2008]
