INTRODUCTION

JOEL OSTEEN, born and bred in the USA, exerts a growing influence on many people in that country as well as many here in Australia; in fact, Hillsong (Sydney) invited him to speak at a their conference in 2009 - we are still not sure why.

We, at Christian Faith, are very concerned about Joel's Gospel. It is not the Gospel of the New Testament. Therefore, you will find the links below very helpful.
