There was one good thing about the slow upload speeds at the Westin Hotel at RNC Boston, I had a chance to finish Elizabeth’s Scalia’s Strange Gods Unmasking the idols in Everyday life (FYI you can find my interview with her on the book here)
The book is all about the things we place before God in our life the idols and Icons that we raise up and I recommend it to anyone who can read.
I would especially recommend it to Secularists as I wrote in my review on Amazon:
But for the skeptic the lessons still hold true, because Strange Gods really is dealing with obsessions, and even if one is not a believer those obsessions can take over your life and get in the way of what is important.And nobody is more vulnerable to creating a strange god than a person who thinks they do not acknowledge one because they will not recognize behavior that a believer would instantly see as religious.
While a skeptic may scoff at the core message of Christ that is the center of the book that warning to remember what is truly important in life can do naught but help overcome they gods they don’t even know they have.
It’s a great read, buy it.
