The Gospel of You?

Dr. Michael Horton of Westminster Seminary California and host of the White Horse Inn has written an excellent review of the new book Become a Better You by Joel Osteen. This is a must read for anyone who believes that Joel is a preacher of the Gospel. (Read Full Review)

Once upon a time, conservative Protestants imagined that theological liberalism was the greatest threat to authentic Christianity in our time. With liberalism almost completely irrelevant as an active school or movement, Osteen's success confirms my suspicions that evangelicalism itself is becoming a more serious obstacle to evangelical faith and practice today.
