I wrote a post on the Icarus Deception by Seth Godin over on my other blog. The book continues to rock my idealistic world, yet it powerfully speaks to this one man choir as nothing else has before.
Point one being it has Jesus all over it without J-e-s-u-s even being spelled out. It’s truly an offering of love that I think will spill over into the marketplace, home, church and school.
I’m not going too even try to review it because the book is leaving me speechless the way Andre Bocelli’s version of Ave Maria left me speechless ten years ago. I can’t thank Sam and Lynnette Davidson enough for giving it to me for Christmas. It is a work of art that you will either hate or love. I love it. It reminds of the kind of following Dave Ramsey commands because I don’t think people like Ramsey or Godin have middle of the road disciples. Sounds kind of Jesus-like doesn’t it? I think Jesus warned of Luke-warm followers didn’t He, and well, you know what He said about them.
The best thing I can write here about The Icarus Deception is that you go out and buy a copy for yourself. Shoot, I’m going to buy several copies just to give out because I believe in what he is trying to accomplish. If you live in Nashville give me a week to get some, and we’ll meet at The Well for a book discussion. If you don’t live in Nashville reply to this post with your address, and I’ll mail you a copy for free. Seems simple enough doesn’t it? No strings attached whether you hate it or love it. If you hate it take it to the closest Goodwill, and if you love it pass the inspiration on.
