Joel Osteen

Joel Osteen (born 1963) is a native Texan and the Pastor of Lakewood Church, Houston, Texas, which according to Church Growth Today is America's largest and fastest growing church. In 2005 Joel had to move Lakewood Church into bigger premises, and at 16,000 seats it is the largest regularly-used worship centre in the United States. Each week Joel delivers God's message of hope and encouragement to more than 38,000 attendees. According to Nielsen Media Research, Joel is the most watched inspirational figure in America. His weekly sermon is broadcast into every U.S. television market where it is viewed by seven million Americans each week and more than 20 million each month. His weekly broadcast is also seen in almost 100 nations around the world.

Joel's first book, Your Best Life Now (2004), and second book, Become a Better You (2007) both debuted at the top of the New York Times bestseller list when they were released. They each have sold millions of copies, and have remained on the bestseller lists for months. Five more books from Joel have also become New York Times bestsellers.

Joel is the son of the late John Osteen, who was originally ordained as a Southern Baptist minister. After undergoing 'baptism in the Holy Spirit' in 1959, Osteen senior founded Lakewood Church in an abandoned feed store. The membership of this phenomenally successful charismatic church would eventually grow to 15,000. Joel attended Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, Oklahoma where he studied radio and television communications. In 1982, he returned to Houston and founded Lakewood's television ministry where he produced his father's televised sermons for 17 years.

For many years, John Osteen encouraged his son to preach, but Joel always declined, preferring to work behind the scenes. However, in early 1999 Joel felt compelled to accept his father's invitation and he preached his first sermon on January 17th of that year. Little did anyone know that would be the last Sunday of John Osteen's life - he died suddenly of a heart attack at age 77. Two weeks later, Joel began preaching regularly and later that year was installed as the new Senior Pastor of Lakewood Church.

Joel's extraordinary success can be found in his core message: That our God is a good God who desires to bless those who are obedient and faithful to Him through Jesus Christ. It is Joel's deepest desire that his own life be an example of that principle and that everyone who hears this message of hope and encouragement would choose to accept God's goodness and mercy and to become all that God wants them to be. Joel has been criticized from many quarters during his ministry, by those who are suspicious of 'prosperity gospel' teachings, and wary of megachurch evangelists. Joel remains focused on preaching God's blessing with integrity, and has steadfastly refused to be drawn into controversies about various hot-button topics, whether theological or social-cultural.

Joel is married to Victoria, who co-pastors Lakewood Church and is also a bestselling author. They were wed in 1987, and have two children, Jonathan and Alexandra.

Inspiration - Relevant to every day life
5 stars By Julie, Jun 24 2016
Need inspiration.  Looking for something that takes everyday life and bases our thoughts, choices, motivations on God.  

You've faced many challenges or maybe facing a huge one - tried so hard but not getting results even seeming to go backwards?

This book is for you.   How can the statement 'I AM.." impact today and all of your tomorrows?  
These two words do change your world forever.
I know because Ive read this book twice and have implemented the I AM into my life every day.  Mind you some days Im not that good at it but when I speak the I AM out and now on looking back since doing it - Gods supernatural powers come into play.
I AM.... like me will be the start of something fantastic for you. 
God will definitely keep his promises of bringing out your hearts desire when you start with I AM....
Curious - buy the book and read it - you will never be the same again.

Identity of I AM?
1 stars By Jan A, Feb 11 2016
Having a special interest in the Biblical names of God this book recently caught my attention. I have not yet read the book as upon reading the book description and the quote re Oprah's "changed life", it further led me to You Tube to seek more information and evidence of this.

I have viewed a number of videos containing interviews with Joel Osteen and Oprah and I am very alarmed by them. Oprah's attempts at trying to define who she thinks God is or should be,and Joel Osteen's compromising responses lack Biblical authority and are extremely disturbing.

I find the book and it's title to be very deceptive (Matthew 24 vs 4) and does not deserve to have a place on the shelves of a Bible based Christian bookshop.

Who is I AM?
1 stars By David Bennett, Dec 08 2015
I confess that I have not read this book, but the title and book description disturb me deeply. God is the great I AM. No human being has the right to adopt that title for themselves.

"Who is?"
1 stars By Richard , Dec 03 2015
The title of this book perfectly illustrates the vast chasm between the author's view and biblical Christianity.

The bible tells us that God himself is the great "I AM" and Jesus (in John's gospel) calls out this term in reference to himself as God incarnate.

What Osteen is doing in this book is using this  term and applying it instead to a completely different centre - human beings with power to change themselves (basically though Neuro Linguistic Programming  positive confession).

This idea is not new and founded in the Word of Faith movement which draws its impetus from the idea that we are little "gods" or are "like God" in the sense that we have the creative power within ourselves. We speak things into being like God.

The main violence to the text is that "man" again becomes the centre not God.

Many people will find the ideas in this book deeply offensive. I hope and pray that the irony of the title is not lost on the reader but fear the opposite especially when Christian bookstores allow them on their shelves.
