The Faith Secret: How to Find Prosperity in Hard Times
Unemployment, underemployment, foreclosures, disappearing nest eggs — millions of Americans are facing crushing economic woes.
Does faith really help in hard times?
Joel and Victoria Osteen believe it does.
The Osteens are pastors of the nation's largest single congregation, with weekly attendance of about 45,000 at their Lakewood Church in Houston, and Joel Osteen's weekly TV program reaches a television audience of some 7 million a week in the U.S. alone.
Their improbable achievement, they say, comes from trusting in God's desire that they thrive.
And they believe the same kind of success can be had by those who follow God's plan, even when the going gets tough.
"You can't have faith if you don't first have hope," Joel tells Newsmax in an exclusive interview. "When you have that hope, it allows God to do great things."
Newsmax magazine's special report, "Faith and Prosperity in a Time of Trouble," takes an in-depth look at religion in America and particularly the Osteens' uplifting message of hope, faith, and trust in God.
