Reviews - What do customers think about NLT2 Hope For Today Bible (Osteen)-HC?
|The No-Depravity Bible Mar 27, 2009|
|Joel Osteen wrote a Bible.|
Well, not really. He just annotated the New Living Translation version of the Bible.
It is what you expected from Joel. Everything is positive and cheery and many of our current issues have been glossed over on a superficial level. And he even includes some of his own heresies.
For example, his notes for Genesis 1:3 tell us to "speak what we seek." So, if I want to, I can just speak out that God is a healer, then God will make me healthy all the days of my life. I can also, according to Joel, speak protection over my family, and he will protect them. I am sure this is what Job thought the entire time his family was being obliterated and he was covered in boils. Jesus probably thought this similarly on His way to the cross...
Joel also tells us that "the potential" is inside us for great things. Funny, I thought I had the potential inside me for nothing. It is only through Christ that I have the potential to be anything.
Guys and girls, this book is a distortion of some basic biblical truths (like depravity, suffering, and death.) Joel tells us that the wages of our sin are not "terminal" (Gen. 3:15 note) although Romans tells us otherwise (the wages of sin is death...)
If you would like a Bible that has an easy to read commentary and is a good translation, I would try the NLT Study Bible or the ESV Study Bible. Skip the Joel Osteen notes. He has no idea what he is talking about.
|This Is What We Need Mar 26, 2009|
|I was introduced to the works of Norman Vincent Peale many years ago. NVP offered many of the same prescriptions back in the WWII era. That was a difficult time for America. And God raised up a man for a time like that. Today, America is again in a difficult period. And God has given us another inspiring preacher who has tapped into our current problems, and given us hope and the power to overcome them. Joel Osteen and wife Victoria have created an amazing resource that addresses every conceivable topic and problem in a way that is fresh and grounded in God's Word. The layout of this Bible is impressive. There are so many helps and annotations that you can't help but be inspired. The choice of the NLT was smart as well. It makes Bible reading easier without dumbing down the language. It also makes studying these concepts much more enjoyable. Osteen's critics like to rail against his preaching style, or the lack of Biblical teaching. I have found no evidence that this is true. Osteen grounds his teaching in the Scriptures. He's the most popular preacher in America, so he's a target. Well, he's the wrong target. God is using Lakewood Church and the Osteens to bless and help many people.|
|Awesome Bible!!! Mar 24, 2009|
|Pastors Joel & Victoria Osteen has done a wonderful job on creating this Bible that offers Hope, Encouragement, Love and Life! There love and their heart for the Lord amazes me and sure blesses my heart of them simply giving the truths and understanding of what all the Lord has shown them by spreading it to the body of Christ. I commend them very much for there deep devotion to the Lord and there hearts for the people by loving them and showing them our rights of being Children of God! I love all the notes and background insights that are spreaded all over the Bible from OT to NT. They also have created a Bible Reading Plan for the 365 days in the year and another section of One Year In The Life Of Jesus Reading Plan. This Bible contains a wealth of information and it gives us the tools to live a wonderful life with the Lord and also helps us to communicate our faith by sharing it with others of the love of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. I am very impressed and my Heart is so touched by this Bible as well as the ministry of Lakewood Church that is impacting this world with the love and teachings of Jesus Christ. I am inspired of the deep work commitment that Pastor John & Dodie Osteen have dedicated their life's to the Lord and as a result, the Lord has increased Lakewood because HE knows that it is good seed ground and that they freely give away of what the Lord has given them. I truly give them a spiritual salute.|
With Very Much Appreciation & Deep Love,

|I just purchased this and have not thoroughly read the entire book yet, but Joel makes it easier to read and understand.|
I always wanted to read the Bible but felt overwhelmed at the thought of doing so.
Looking forward to reading the entire Bible and living my life accordingly.
