Carol Stream, IL January 4th, 2013—The Daily Beast, a renowned news reporting and opinion website which is in conjunction with Newsweek, announced its best reads of 2012 recently, and named Christianity Today’s investigative piece on Asian evangelical leader David Jang, “The Second Coming Christ Controversy”, as one of their “Best Long Reads of 2012.”
The investigative report, co-written by journalist Ken Smith and Christianity Today online managing editor Ted Olsen, examines David Jang, the increasingly influential figure in Asian and American evangelicalism, and whether he and his associates encouraged the belief that he was indeed the second coming of Christ. The piece fairly lends a voice to both critics and defenders of Jang and his ministry.
