I've been thinking about this all weekend. Don't know Joel Osteen. May I ask why it is such a crisis for him to be the most popular preacher in America?It's not my style to do exposes of other preachers. Just as well, because Michael Spencer has done it for us. He believes (rightfully, I think) that we should be concerned. Backing up a bit: I believe one of our major tasks over the next decade will be to re-articulate the Gospel, not just at a theological level, but at the level of every church. Can't help but get excited about that.
