I think you should have writtena counter-book to Joel Osteen's. You could entitle the first one "Jesus Wants You to Live Your Worst Life Now" and the second you could title "Accept Jesus and Don't Become a Better You." Now that would be gospel.. huh.

Haha, great suggestion Don. I'll see if Zondervan will publish it!
