Gregg Braden wrote a book in 2000 called "The Isaiah Effect" which centered around the idealisms of the prophet Isiah, who many learned about from the Old Testament. Braden notes
Beyond the specifics of precise events, a generalized view of ancient predictions reveals threads of a common theme. In each glimpse into our future, the prophecies follow a clear pattern: descriptions of catastrophe are immediately followed by a vision of life, joy, and possibility.Interesting, no? The Isiah Thomas Effect is one of a self-believed basketball prophet who led the Knicks franchise through great catastrophe.
To be honest, I've been avoiding the sensationalism. I ignored the idea when I heard he's be on the radio today in what was sure to be a stunt to try to get more listeners.
