Reading a new book - "Face your Fear" by Rabbi Shmuley Boteach...

    Has anyone read it? Or any thought on his concepts here?

    The basic thought is that fear [a negative driving force] will motivate us from the outside, but it is better to turn to positive inward drives to get life fulfillment.

    His thought is that 'fear of being insignificant' is the primary drive in society [primarily Western society I think].

    I could not help but see all the connections to jdub thinking while reading it. Only have read about half, but found it very positive and thoughtful perspective.

    Interesting this guy is a prominent Rabbi in Brooklyn area and he hits many of the bottons that drive witness culture, although he has not mentioned them so far in the book.

    This reminds me of the Darius Fontaine Character from "Grand Theft Auto San Andreas"

    Boteach should know a bit about JWs. He's Michael Jackson's friend.

    Really DocBob?

    Never knew that. MJ's friend huh?

    Well he should have a full blown example of the disfunctionality that comes from being driven by fear.
