Reviewing the Adventist Review

June 9, 2011
Vol. 188, No. 16

It’s hard not to be distracted by this cover. Jesus as a Nordic androgynous superman? Seems weirdly irreverent. And blue eyed? Shouldn’t he look more like Clifford Goldstein? Then there’s Bill Knott’s admonition to pronounce Adventist, ADventist for theological reasons.

It’s comforting to know that the Joplin tornado only damaged the local Adventist church (no SDA lives were lost), and Ted Wilson is speaking to huge crowds and making friends in Angola, Madagascar, Mauritius, Reunion Island, and the Seychelles.

Don’t overlook the stories by Dixil Rodriguez and Andrew McChesney.
