Speaking of the marriage of entertainment and theology (see the discussion below regarding the A-Rod picture), Joel and Victoria Osteen are releasing their "Hope for Today Bible." (Click here: Joel Osteen Ministries)
Here's the promo text on their website
"Featuring notes and encouragement from Joel and Victoria Osteen
`This is my Bible, I am what it says I am, I have what it says I have, I can do what it says I can do.'
These are the words of promise and hope that we have been declaring over the lives of people all over the world since the beginning of our ministry. We invite you to explore this special Hope for Today Edition of the New Living Translation Bible. It is our desire that you would be inspired every day by the life-giving, supernatural, God-breathed Scriptures. $25.00"
I didn't know there were any verses about how to find a parking place, win a court battle with an angry flight attendant, or cry at will. I'm glad the Osteens are willing to enlighten us.
Now I know what to get Mike, Rod, and Ken for Christmas. I might even buy Shane a copy! Wait, I take that back. Shane will get one for free at the National Religious Broadcasters convention.
