Most book signings at Barnes & Noble are filled with star-struck fans, but on Wednesday, Pastor Joel Osteen had his emotional fans faithstruck.
Osteen’s new book, “Think Better, Live Better,” hit the New York Times’ best-seller list and the faithful heard the call when the popular TV evangelist made a stop at the book store in New Springville — about 300 of them to be exact.
Josephine Mauro of Bulls Head waited on a long line that snaked the book retailer’s aisles for a glimpse of the man she fellowships with every Sunday morning via his televised sermons.
“I took a day off of work to be here,” said Mauro, who also scored a handshake. “I just want to thank him for giving me a positive vibe … no matter what’s going on he just gives [me] some positivity.”
Osteen made a point of greeting every person waiting on line with at least a smile before beginning his book signing in the music section of the store.
He said his book was meant to give people faith not only in religion, but also in themselves.
