I really think people are shallow when they have to cut down others. If you dont care for what she has to say in her book then why did you read it? you dont have to like or agree or believe in anything she says but if her book helps one person get closer to GOD or their family than it's served it's purpose. And by the way how can someone say she's not qualified to write a book or best seller? I didn't know there were qualifications to do that, as a matter a fact I know there aren't! I'm in the process of writting one myself and last I checked all I need is a publisher and they usually want cash . Anyhow I haven't read the book but I do listen to Joel everytime I happen to catch him on T.V. and I find him to be a good teacher of Gods word. Didn't your mamas teach you "if you dont have something nice to say then don't say nothing at all" well she should have! God Bless....Lisa

There is one skill we as Christians have perfected, and the skill is not a good one. We are experts at throwing rocks. We are masters of criticism. It is not my place to judge the motives and lives of the Osteens. I do not totally agree with the "prosperity Gospel." God does not promise us great riches and positions of power and wealth, but He does promise us eternal life through His son. I have nothing against the Osteens. I am not their judge. I say to the critics: "Let him who is without sin cast the first stone." I rest my case."

When did Victoria become a pastor? I do not understand these spouses who ride in on the coattails of famous spouses and write books and try to squeak into popularity. Victoria is not a psychologist or a pastor aand really has no credentials to write a book. It sounds like she is just trying to get her name and face on material that is old and tired. Maybe her husband wrote the book, hmmm. Same old same old. Prosperity gospel preacher couples like this are not in favor with either God or man. So called Christian couples this like pale in comparison to celebrity couples like Brangelina who are donating milions to help third world countries simply survive. Victoria is just another bimbo and should get a life of her own. She will be more remembered for her public temper tanturms than anything with her name on it. Don't bother buying this book, Save your money and donate to the needy. That will be a better path to happiness and self fulfillment, not to mention fulfilling the advice of Christ to feed and clothe the needy first. Why even take up cyberspace with an interview like this?

i have studied the bible 25 years and the only thing i disaagree with Victoria Osteen on is that hope is faith. Faith is belief in JESUS CHRIST and HIM crucified and that is where our hope comes from.

"Love your Life"? "He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal." John 12:25
