Correction: Newsmax’s cover story “The Jesus Question” is from April 2009.
The editors of Newsmax might be getting a little impatient for the second coming of Christ.
The conservative magazine’s latest cover story, “The Jesus Question,” is about the son of god’s return to earth as prophesied in the Bible.
Jesus is no stranger to newstands. Biblical history interests plenty of readers. Just ask a few magazine editors. But the text accompanying Newsmax’s Jesus cover story (“Will He Ever Return?”) seems to strike a more plaintive, are-we-there-yet tone, that differs from those of the general interest magazines.
Obama’s armageddon-inducing health care bill isn’t mentioned, but the president’s “globalist” ways are panned in a section devoted to biblical prophesies
I think it’s the hint of exasperation that makes this wonderful.
Radley Balko thinks it’s the note of (mild) exasperation that makes this cover splendid. I agree. Jesus: Disappointing You for 2000 Years.
As the man put it:
Estragon: He should be here.
Vladimir: He didn’t say for sure he’d come.
