He even wrote a positive-thinking book in 2004, which helped him promote his "live at your full potential" message on the road to sold-out sports arenas. Although he holds no degree and only briefly attended Oral Roberts University, he honed his preaching skills to perfection under his father's guidance. Once his inaugural book "Your Best Life Now" had become a New York Times best-seller in 2005, Osteen gave up his $200,000 church salary. As for Osteen's second book titled "Become A Better You", it has reportedly brought him in a cool $13 million. Joel Osteen, whose book sales and related stuff generates a reported $55 million, claims an individual should not feel guilt for possessing lots of material wealth. Instead, one needs to thank and praise God for the acquired wealth.
