With crisp diction and a melodious baritone, Joel Osteen delivers 10 of his most popular sermons, recorded live at Lakewood Church. Adding touches of humor, he combines personal examples with scripture to communicate feel-good biblical counsel. He begins sermons with the words, "This is my Bible. I am what it says . . . " The talks include audience participation and end with a brief salvation message and altar call. Comparing humans to computers, Osteen says that human software is contaminated by the enemy—Satan—who promotes bondage and negativity. With a seamless narration Osteen explains how to reprogram one’s mind through scripture and visualization techniques. Positive thinking, he believes, produces constructive attitudes and behavior and the courage to be different. G.D.W. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2009]
