"Become a Better You"

Back in April, I mentioned that Texas pastor Joel Osteen was about to publish another book, Become a Better You: 7 Keys to Improving Your Life. I haven't read the book, of course (it will be released on October 15), but I can only imagine what it contains: various self-help platitudes sided with Bible verses to make it seem more Christian. Honestly, what more can he bring to the self-help/self-improvement aisle that hasn't already been brought? Peruse this list and see how many books are there that offer advice on ways for one to improve one's life. You'd think everyone in America would be self-actualized millionaires by now.

Michael Spencer, never one to mince words, writes a letter to CBD about their endorsement of Osteen's latest book.
