The White Horse Inn on Joel Osteen's "It's Your Time"

Joel Osteen has a new book, It’s Your Time. Apparently he emailed a mail-out promoting his new book and the staff at The White Horse Inn (WHI) received a copy. Here is a quote from Osteen’s new book:

God wants to breathe new life into your dreams. He wants to breathe new hope into your heart. You may be about to give up on a marriage, on a troubled child, on a lifelong goal. But God wants you to hold on. He says if you’ll get your second wind, if you’ll put on a new attitude and press forward like you’ll headed down the final stretch, you’ll see Him begin to do amazing things.

The final observation by the WHI sums up with brevity the major problem with Osteen’s book:

Just for the record, out of the fourteen free pages of teaser text about “faith, favor, and fulfillment,” there isn’t one, not one mention of Jesus.
